Why is my 6 1/2 month old not sleeping 12-14 hrs a day?

I need help with my six month old and his sleep schedule. I'm concerned because I feel he is not sleeping the hours that he should. He sleeps around 8 hrs at night. Then he will wake up and take around three naps a day. The first one for about 40 minutes and the other two for 15 minutes. In total he is sleeping a little over 9 hrs a day. That is just too little time for a 6 1/2 month old isn't it? What can I do?

can you adjust his schedule a little and cut back from three naps to 2? Is your schedule fairly consistent (time he goes to bed, wakes up, naps, eats, etc?). A regular pattern can really help
