How does you little one sleep?

How does your baby sleep during the day and night? Mine used to sleep 2-3 hours at a time. Lately he's up every 1/2hour to an hour during the day. He'll finally settled down around midnight or 1am and sleep for 3-4 hours, wake up for a feed and then up every 2 hours at a time until around 9am and then the same pattern the next day.

Is this normal?

I think "normal" varies from kid to kid... you didn't say how old your child is, and that would make a huge difference in whether or not it could be considered a normal sleeping pattern. I would try to keep him up during daylight hours for longer stretches (if possible), by keeping the lights on, playing with him, keeping him sitting up and active, music on or toys out... maybe this would encourage him to stay up for a bit rather than cat napping constantly? I know some kids naturally do this kind of thing.. but obviously if you can't function because he's staying up until 1am every night this will be a problem and you might have to let him cry it out if he's fed and the diaper is changed... just an idea.
