  1. Hi Val, my son is 5 months now and we are down to three naps. The third nap is only 45 min and the other naps are about 2 hours each. The first nap, however, for a couple days off an on has been a mess. In the morning he is usually only able to be up for 1.5 hours before he needs a nap. The second nap he is able to be up for 2 hours. Do you think it is possible that he can handle being up for 2 hours in the morning now? Or should I only extend his morning wake time to 1.75 hours? Thanks for your help!

  2. It is possible that he can be up earlier. I like to extend waketime in small increments. I wouldn’t add more than 10 minutes at a time. With Kaitlyn I only added 5 minutes at a time.See also this post:5-8 Month Sleep Disruptions : http://babywisemom.blogspot.com/2008/05/6-month-sleep-disruptions.html
