Here's the skinny: Nathan is not really a sleeper. Here's how an average day goes: Nathan wakes up between 6:30 and 7:00. He stays up for an hour or an hour and a half and then naps. He'll wake up long enough to play and eat and play some more, and then crash for another 30 minutes. This pattern pretty much persists all day. Around 8:00 at night, he's pretty much done for the day and just wants to snuggle. He may or may not fall asleep between 8:30 and 10:00. Or, he might fall asleep around 11:00. Regardless, he wakes up at 1:00 - LIKE CLOCKWORK - and at 4:00, ready for action! We're usually up for 30-45 minutes, then he crashes until 6:30 or 7:00.
Right now, this sleep "schedule" (BWAHAHAHAH ... did you laugh out loud too?) is fine with me, because I'm not a sleeper and also, I'm home.
So, my question: Is there a problem with me letting him sleep in this pattern? If so, how do I keep him awake for longer stretches of time?
