Normal Phase? Sleep Related

Hi, mamas. It seems like we're ALWAYS having some new issue with sleep around here. Although we have a steady routine for naps/bed time, it seems like ds's sleep patterns change every week or two. Is that normal???

The current "phase" is that my 14 month old ds is sleeping from about 8-8:30pm to 5-5:30am. Last night he went to sleep around 8:15, woke at 11ish to nurse, then again at 4:45am - at that point, he was awake and ready to roll. Shouldn't he be getting 10-12 hours of sleep per night? He went down for a normal morning nap, as usual, 3-4 hours after he woke up, and slept for a little over an hour. This afternoon, he took a whopping 30 minute nap. It's been this way all week, and I'm really confused as to why he's not sleeping much. He 's not even extra cranky or anything until around dinner time. Any ideas? If nothing else, thanks for "listening" to me vent

I'd say he probably doesn't need 2 naps any more. If you go down to one afternoon nap from the two, he'll probably nap better and sleep better. He just might be ready to drop one.

Ya know, you guys gave me this same advice a few weeks ago! Duh - sleep deprived, anyone? I actually spent a few days working on the transition, but ds didn't really seem ready for it. Maybe I'll give it another shot... Thanks!
