Baby likes napping in his pram and I often have to wake him up. He can total 4hrs naps a day. He wakes, hiwever at night approx. 11pm, 2.30pm, 5pm and wabts to get up at 5.30. R too many naps (he usually have 3, 2 long ones and a power nap around 5 for 30mins. Bedtime 7.30.

His day naps sound about right for his age to be honest I would'nt worry. I tried cutting my little ones naps to help better night sleep but it has no effect, just makes him grumpier. He's 4 months and sleeps around 6 hours a day at the mo.

I don't think it's the naps causing the night wakings, it sounds more like he doesn't know how to go back to sleep when he wakes in the night.

The naps might be related to the 5.30 wake up though, possibly.
