Sounds like UT wakings to me, some of his A times on those days really are quite short for a 10.5 month old and may be why you are getting short naps too.

Essentially once you get to 4h A you need to choose which nap to keep long, and which to cut short/'cap'.  With a long morning nap the day can look like:

WU 6
Nap 10-11.30/12 (allow to sleep)
Nap 3/3.30/4 for 30-45 mins
BT 7 (as you can see the day gets longer but a 13h day is plenty - if you want to keep an earlier BT you'd need to cut the pm nap even shorter but the aim is to hold off the 2-1 for a while so letting the day go longer is often a better short-term option)

With a short am nap you'd go for something like:

WU 6
Nap 9.30 for 30-45 mins
Nap 1/1.30 for 1.5-2h
BT 7ish
(shorter A times earlier in the day due to the shorter nap, then a longer stretch awake before bed)

What do you think?

That sounds great I will defo try that I think he would better with the long afternoon nap as he tends to always need to be woken from that one I will defo give it a try
What's the total amount of nap time sleep hebshojld be having at this age and I will have to try the 7pm bedtime x if I'm doing the longer second nap should I wake him from the first nap if he's stil asleep x

So he's actually having a longer am nap today he went at half 9 and is still asleep now at 11
Does it have to be the same long nap every day ? Or can u sometimes do a long am nap then a long pm nap ? So say if he's not awake by half 11 that would 2 hours would u then wake him up x

You can be flexible if it works for you both :D  I liked the predictability but lots of people find they can work it both ways to fit round groups etc.  I think 2h for the long nap is plenty x

Yeh I like naps to be predictable to so I will probably stick to the same long nap but if we are doing something will have to change it
He woke up himself at 11.30 so he had 2 hours bless him
If he woke at half 11 what time would u do next nap and it's ok to be just 30-45 mins isn't it would I wake him after that long if he was stil sleeping I have to go out so e will probably just have to cat nap in his pram this afternoon x

Hi hun, I'm sorry I know it's so hard. If you left him be would he put himself back to sleep?

He normally does but he's been crying past few nights I had to sit by his cot last nigh I've never had to do that
He feels really warm but not got a temp I think he's teething his gums look really sore x
