Big hugs BE! Unfortunately all babies are different and I don't think there is a set time for them settle in to a routine. Some ladies on here have had a routine for months and then baby decided to change its pattern all together
W is hit and miss with day naps still.
Try and get a sleep when O goes down. 15 minutes are better than nothing!

Ahh this sounds familar, Disco didn't really nap in the day (unless out and about in the pram/pushchair or the odd completely unexpected 3 hou marathom) until he became mobile
I found once i accepted this life was much easier I stopped beating myself up about what I was an wasn't doing wrong and just enjoyed my day.
Even now he naps we have no strict routine I just pop him down when he looks readdy in the day I half shut the blind sing twinkle twinle and put him down at night he is always in bed between 7:30 and 8pm and we folow th same pattern of milk, teeth nappy bed cloths on story twinkle twinkle and into cot but none of this started until the 6/7 month mark
Do what works best for you don't compare yourself to others and don't believe everyone that tells you there baby naps some just don't out of our NCT group half were awesom day time nappers some were hit and miss and some just didn't do day time napping until they became mobile.

I've found W loves music, so to help him with his daytime naps, I play music and sing to him and dance a little bit with him in my arms. It's great for mummy exercising too! He loves Olly Murs 'Dance with me tonight' i found when he was a bit younger that just the sound of the intro would send him off. He never lasted past the first chorus!

About 3 months he would wake every 3hours in the night for a drink and it hasn't really changed since. Yes he's 1 this week and still on 3-4 hourly wakes

Thanks for your replies :-) just having one of those days!
Missus S - sorry that H hasn't started sleeping longer yet, 1 year without sleeping longer than 4 hours is a long time for you :-( xxx
