Sleeping Too Much

   My son is 10 months old. He wakes up at around 7 am, I get him out of bed by 7:30 at the latest, and he is usually ready for a nap around 9 or 9:30 at the latest. He sleeps until sometimes noon, then has lunch and wants another nap by 1 or 2. Then wakes up around 3 or 4 and is ready for a nap right before dinner. I dont let him nap again and he is miserable from dinner till bed around 7:30 to 8. How do I keep him up?? It does not matter if we are home, or out he just wants to sleep!!

Wow! That is a lot of sleeping. IDK if that's something to be concerned with or not. Has he always slept that much? Maybe he's going through a growth spurt if not.

Umm yeah for the most part he sleeps like this. I am just wondering by this age most babies are not as happy to nap so much. He is in a great mood till tired hits, then he is a raving maniac...lol Kinda makes doing anything a big chore :)

Most babies require 3 naps a day, which is what he's getting. And him staying awake for 2 to 2.5 hours then napping is perfectly normal. I wouldn't worry too much. Don't force him to stay awake or he'll be that much harder to put to sleep at night.

I would go by his schedule.
