I wondered if you would be willing to post up your general schedules for the day? I've noticed recently that my LO is cranky and hard to get to nap during the day and I wondered if maye he wasn't getting enough to eat and/or I have his routine all wrong. This is usually what we do: 7/7.30 - LO wakes and plays until 8/8.30 when he gets breakfast. Then he generally plays for another half an hour and then he starts rubbing his eyes for a nap. This is when it gets tricky. He's a nightmare to get down and im thinking it's probably because he's overtired. Should be feeding him as soon as he wakes at 7/7.30? and let him play THEN put him down for his sleep? He used to be fine doing the above but I've only realised in the last day that he is waking earlier than before so this is probably why he gets overtired and then grouchy!
