So my 9 month old wakes up at 5am a few times a week and i don't know why, he won't settle again after a feed he's up and ready to play, he used to have two naps but i cant get him to have his afternoon one often anymore any recommendations?

Yes push the morning nap later, make it shorter and then keep the afternoon nap. Morning naps that are too early & too long exacerbate early morning waking.

Sorry, no advice but DD went through this for a few weeks, eventually she decided she liked to stay in bed until a more reasonable time. I think what helped was keeping her busy in the afternoon after her nap

Just wanted to say SNAP grin
Going to try shortening the morning nap as suggested. He's cutting his top molars so I figured that might have something to do with it. Hoping it'll pass soon!
