Hi there Bori
The above routine is fine if you are getting those lengths of naps. For the guidance times by age he is having quite a long A time but some LOs do better on longer so if you have already discovered these times work well for him then keep going
We always adapt EASY to individual LOs as every baby is different.
The above routine, we would usually call a 4hr EASY, not because LO needs to stay awake for 2hrs but because the E comes every 4hrs rather than every 3hrs. If your LO is okay to feed every 4hrs that is totally fine.
I'm not sure I would suggest trying to extend his A time any further at this point if he is doing those good naps. If he is doing well on this routine I would just hold it there until such time it shows that a change is needed.
The third nap - I think you are saying he needs a long nap - this is totally fine
It looks like it works well and give him enough sleep to get to BT at 8pm if I have read your routine correctly.
Ah another problem is that he takes short sleep until 22h.
I'm not sure what you mean here. After BT at 8pm is he waking up a lot for the first couple of hours? This might be due to a bit of OT but if the waking is not too bad I wouldn't worry about it too much.
I also wanna ask about PU/PD method to extend naps
PUPD is not going to help in any way if your baby is waking after a short nap and is happy or only lightly fussing. It is also not intended for babies this young. Even Tracy did not use PUPD under 4 months and said it was a last resort method. On the forums we generally do not advise using it even as early as 4 months, really it is intended for older babies.
I recommend looking at sleep training using shush/pat and to extend naps with the help of W2S as you did on your previous thread.
It is often possible to adapt the shush/pat if you have another method of support which helps your LO, such as gentle rocking, a firm hand or stroking the head or back rather than patting. If you'd like advice on this we could perhaps offer some. I used an adapted shush/pat with my LO as patting seemed to make his reflux a bit worse.
Your English is great by the way

Sorry I see we have been a little contradictory on the A time. Katherine I think LO is 3 months 5 days rather than 3.5 months. So I have take an average guidance time of 1hr 20 to 1hr 30 at 3 months and see in the routine more like 1hr 50.
I hope this explains why we have said slightly different things Bori. We can clarify if needed.
