My six month old DS only lasts 1.5-3 hours between sleeps. If he's awake longer than 2.5-3 hours he gets VERY unhappy.

So if he woke at 3-330pm from an early avo sleep would you give him another sleep late avo?

My 6 month old sleeps from 6pm -6.30am (waking twice to be resettled usually).
At the moment we are in the process of transitioning from 3 to 2 sleeps. I'm finding that if she has two decent sleeps and wakes for the last time after 2, then she will be able to last the 4 hours til 6pm bedtime.
If she wakes prior to that(2pm), I will try to give her a third nap at about 3pm. She will usually do about 30-40 minutes (one sleep cycle).
This third sleep doesn't usually alter her bedtime, it's still 6pm roughly.
Hope this helps!!

Thanks. It's all trial and error I guess.

DS didn't drop his til 7 months. The second nap became quite late in the afternoon around 4-5pm. He would usually go to bed for the might around 8pm.

Wow, my 6 month old only has one sleep most days. Occasionally he will have two. I knew i was getting ripped off, again.

DS is 8 months and will sleep 6pm-630am with a dreamfeed at 10pm and a demand feed at 330am. He naps at 9-10ish, 1230-2ish and 4pm-5ish. He is self transitioning to two naps and 50% of the time he will drop the 4pm nap and go to bed a little earlier.

My ds wakes at 3.30pm too. He used to have another sleep from 5.30pm - 7pm and that sleep started getting shorter but he was waking up very cranky. So at around 6.5 months I kept him up to see what he would do and he was ok so I've dropped it. He now goes to bed at around 8pm. Sometimes he is super cranky and tired and wants his last feed earlier, and sometimes he will fall asleep for a quick nap in his high chair or in my arms. But most of the time he is pretty good
He is now 7.5 months HTH x
