My 12 month old son wakes up around 10:00 am. He use to take a hr-2 hr nap during the day but now he might take a 15-30 min nap around 6:00-8:00 pm, then he is up till 12:00-2:00 am every night. How can i get him on a normal schedule. And i tried waking him up earlier and he was like the maddest baby ever and still didn't go to bed until late.

It seriously will take a while to get him used to his new schedule, but he will eventually adjust.

Start waking him up earlier, maybe around 7 or 8. Try to give him a nap around 12 -2. It may take a week to get him onto a different schedule, but will be worth it. That night time nap you are giving him (cat nap) is enough to energize him through the rest of the night. Hell, even wake him at 6. It will kill you too beings your schedule will get messed up. Then when he wakes up from his nap in the afternoon, take him out. Get him to run and play in the fresh air. Do it when he wakes up in the morning too. Get him to the park, mall, whatever. Go for a walk around the neighborhood.



Of course he was mad when you woke him early. he was tired. If you really want to get him on a schedule, you are just gonna have to do it. There is no magic trick to this. Also, when he starts taking his mid day nap, do not let him go more than 2 hours or so.
