    Haven't read the replies, so sorry if it has been suggested.

    Can you alter the times?

    As in, make his first nap up to 1.5 hours (maximum), and then put him down for a second nap for about an hour?

    Default Sleep issue, again....

    Still reading through the comments but he would definitely still need two day sleeps right now. Reasons it's gone pear-shaped recently could be these:

    --Wonder week? DS' naps always go a bit funny and he's a bit whingey during these weeks then he goes back to normal.

    --not tired enough because he's bored? Have you started doing activities with him yet? Swim lessons, music class, Gymboree, story time at the library, etc? I know the rain is annoying (I'm currently living in London in the winter!) but these are all indoor activities and he'll be fine under the rain cover in his pram, it's just you that has to tough out the walk to the location. I know it's annoying but I've just got to suck it up sometimes and always happy I do as it's a social time for me as well and breaks up our days.

    --teething. DS was teething for 3 months before anything popped up.

    --He may be hungry or thirsty but your breastmilk is more calorie dense than solids right now so if you can't get him to eat or drink enough then offer another breastfeed. Teething would also make him not big on solids right now, my DS hates the spoon going in his mouth when he's teething.

    Eta: could be a combination of all of these things plus pp's suggestion about of maybe make his morning sleep a little shorter and strive for a longer sleep after lunch.

    Eta again: I'm actually leaning more towards bored and not tired enough if he's having a big morning sleep and then not getting out much.
