Hi Framey,

At 5 months we have fallen into roughly:

Wake 7ish
Nap 8.30/9ish (about an hour)
Nap 12ish (varies, at least an hour, sometimes 2)
Very brief nap about 4/5ish
Bed 7/7.30ish

I do find my DD struggles to stay awake for more than about 2 or max 2.5 hours at a time (gets v grizzly) but not sure how common this is.

PS. At about your stage my DD had late bedtime too and we were a bit despairing of ever getting our evenings back but gradually she seemed to want to go to sleep earlier. I've never really tried to impose a routine on her though - it's just kind of obvious when she's tired as she gets grizzly and easily upset.

By 4 months old, our LO was on:

7-ish wake
9-ish nap 1 hour
12-ish nap 1-2 hours
3.30pm nap 1-1.5 hours
7pm bed
11pm wake to feed then sleep through to 7am

What time does she wake up? Cam you try shifting all the naps forward an hour?

Thanks everyone thats really interesting.
Megbusset, we wake at 6ish usually for a feed then stay in bed til 8.30/9ish.
DrCosy, we also are wondering when we will get evenings back, I think that time on your own in the evening is really important.

Should have said, my DS2 is a little younger (16 weeks) but still having 4 naps of about an hour each, with about 1.5 hours awake in between.

Eg today it was:

Wake 7.30
Nap 9-10
Nap 11.30-12.30
Nap 2-3
Nap 4.30-5.30
Bed 8

I imagine that in a few weeks the two lunchtime naps will consolidate into one... but DS1 didn't reliably have a long lunchtime nap every day until he was one!
