DS was sleeping up to 3-4 hours throughout the day and this would be quite late. I feel terrible doing it but I am now putting him to sleep at about 1pm for 1hour or 1.5 hours max so 2.30pm wakeup time. This has made a difference but if I dont then get him out & about it makes no difference if you get what I mean?
I need to become more strict with the times as I work from home & need to find some more time! Am trying to fit the work in around his physical needs and the need to burn up his energy.

No we just worked it out from trial and error, I'm too disorganised to do a food diary.
I think maybe 1-1.5 hours might be a bit too short if he's used to sleeping 3-4 hours? Can you cut to 2.5 then 2 and see how you go? You don't want him overtired as I find DS falls asleep easily if he's had a super short nap but then wakes more.
But I think all of what you are doing is on the right track. Good luck!

I don't have any sleep suggestions because mine both stopped day sleeps well before then. But it does sound like his routine needs a bit of readjusting.
In terms of drinking lots, my kids take a water bottle to bed with them. And I suggest you put something like a brolley sheet/waterproof on top of the sheets- that way if he leaks through you only have to whip that top layer off rather than wash the sheets every day.
Hope it all improves soon.
