I agree with VPs sleep and awake times and think you should still stick with your bedtime routine, especially since nights aren't usually bad for you. It's important to have wind down time and sleep cues. Our routine was a bit like this at that age:
Wake between 6-7am and breastfeed.
Breakfast about an hour after breastfeed, usually around 7.30/8 (usually porridge with fruit and toast)
Morning sleep 2-2.5 hours after waking, usually around 8.30 or 9/9.30. Would try to push him to 2.5 hours awake but sometimes in the mornings he could only last 2 hours.
Wake around 10.30/11 and breastfeed again. Try to get out for a walk or scheduled activity (music class, swim lessons, etc) or swing.
Lunch about 1 hour after breastfeed (some type of casserole with meat/veg/carb and fruit)
Sleep 2.5 hours after waking last, usually around 1pm. Do what I can to get him to sleep over an hour (if he wakes too soon), even if that meant lying with him.
Up around 3 (sometimes 2.30, sometimes 4pm). Breastfeed. Try to get out for a walk/swing/library/scheduled activity, etc
Dinner around 5pm (some type of casserole type thing with protein/veg/carb and then Greek yogurt with fruit added for dessert)
Bath around 5.30 and get dressed
Two stories (usually a 'that's not my...' Book and then something like Goodnight Moon)
Offer other breast and go to sleep.
If he fusses when I lie him down (for any sleep) I cuddle/rock (sitting in a chair or on bed) in the dark until I can tell he's dozey and lie him down in his cot gently keeping my hands on him until I can tell he's definitely asleep. He usually hates patting. Sneak out quietly.
Eta: the meals were once he was interested in solids. He wasn't really interested until around 7 months but I just kept offering and trying and then he took off and was obsessed so it went quickly after that.
