    Hi Emma,

    Your replies are always so helpful, thank you!

    Yesterday my now 15 week old was suddenly so awake and resisted naps, even the morning nap. During the day he was awake for 1.75 to 2.5 hours at a time, previously just 1.25 to 1.5 hours the week before! He dropped 2 naps, from 6 naps to 4 naps, 2x 45 min and 2x 30 min naps. Should I be concerned that he is sleeping so little during the day? Will he become sleep deprived? He wasn’t showing any late tired cues or even much mid tired cues, he smiles at me when I put him down for bed like he wanted to play more and would fuss when I tried to get him to nap. His bedtime suddenly shifted and he was asleep at 7.10pm. He woke up at 8pm for nearly 1 hour due to gas pain but other than that he slept through. I notice that he always needs 7 feeds a day though, during the days that I missed a feed he would not sleep well at night and would wake up crying for a feed after just 1 hour of sleep after bedtime. Is this something that I need to experiment with as now I can’t follow the sleep wake feed play cycle due to multiple feeds during his awake time.

    Thanks so much!
