Why is my 8 month old suddenly now very tired during the day?

Typical day which has been working brilliantly:

5:30 - 6:30 am - awake
07:00 am - milk
08:30 - breakfast
Between 09:30 & 09:45 has a 45-55 min nap
12:00 lunch
13:30 nap for 45 mins
14:30 milk
17:00 tea
18:00 bath and milk
18:45 bed

These last few days though he has been extremely tired after his morning nap. Today woke from his nap at 10:45 am and was cranky and rubbing his eyes at 12:00. He refused his lunch and have put him to bed at 12:30 and has dropped off straight away. Does anyone know if this could be a growth spurt? Dont think its anything to do with the clocks going forward as he has been doing this the last few days.

Hmm if he's only having 45 minutes, could be he's waking up after a sleep cycle and could do with staying in bed and seeing if he settles again for a longer nap.

Could be a growth spurt though.
