Hi, my little boy is 15 weeks old, has 4 or 5 naps a day (he cat naps). He goes to bed at 7pm and sleeps until anywhere between 2.30 and 3.30 for a feed.
But then he wants to stay awake for up to 2hrs!!! He’s happy, smiling, cooing, trying to roll over.
Do we think this is a development phase as he keeps trying to practice rolling?

That does sound like a phase.

Have you tried going him a dreamfeed between 10 and 11pm to see if he will sleep through the early hours?

Mine did this, it was their brains telling them to rehearse their new skill! Happened with different ages too I'm afraid.
