My 4.5 month old will not go to sleep earlier then 12 am sometime later and then wakes up at 11 am. I have a routine bathtime play then eat I burp him this all starts between 6 pm and 8 pm. He will go to sleep I put I'm in his bassenet but wakes up 30 mins later. Any advise on how to change his sleep routine

I would try starting with waking him up earlier in the morning. Instead of letting him sleep until 11 am start by waking him an hour at 10 am. And keep moving the time back an hour until you get to anywhere from 6-8 am. Keep naps at a certain time. A morning nap around 9 am for about an hour and then an afternoon nap around 1:30 pm or so for about 2 hours is what I do. Then at that age sometimes they need a 30 min. cat nap in the evening around 5-6 pm. With this schedule our bedtime between 9-10 pm. As they get older 6-8 months then bedtime falls back to 8-9 pm and the pm cat nap is cut out.
