Cut some of the daytime napping. Babies only need a certain number of hours sleep per 24 hour cycle. As they get older, that need becomes less. By 9 months, your baby should only be having 1 - 2 naps per day (depending on the child), so I'd definitely cut the 3rd one, and maybe even consider cutting the second one every other day. In total, your baby should be getting about 13-15 hours of sleep per day. Your baby may be one of the ones who only needs 13 hours.
