Sorry, I didn't mean to abandon you. My back is very bad and I haven't been able to get on-line. I am still bad so can't rely post properly.
I've highlighted your thread to the other mods and hopefully you can get some support over here.

I dont see how thats possible either. My LO definitely would not have been OT from that but she does have pretty low sleep needs. Maybe shes UT at BT, have you tried more AT before BT? When we were in 2 naps shed mostly have shorter naps, wed have something like this:

WU 730
A 4:00
S 1130-1215
A 3:45
CN 4-430
A 3-3:30
BT 730/8

I know this looks like no day sleep at all but her naps only got longer since getting more AT and switching to one nap. Anything longer than 45m was pretty rare for us. She always has had a long AT in the morning, getting shorter as the day goes on. But if she had a long morning nap like that she would probably need more AT in the afternoon. Id usually have to cap her CN so BT wasnt too late.

Ive had wake ups shortly after going to bed for both OT and UT. Is she upset and sleepy when she wakes up after BT or happy? I can usually tell pretty easily when she wakes up if shes OT or UT.

Maybe the morning nap needs to be capped to 1.5h so you can still have 2 naps with a reasonable BT?

She just cries with her eyes closed, easy to replug her and resettle but annoying to do it every hour. Shes definitely not chatty and happy.
Shes unfortunately not going to get a long second nap. With the longer A times her second nap is now right in the middle of when I pick her sister up. So I usually aim for an A of 3.5h and stick her in a pram and walk 45min to the preschool. She wakes just as a get there. Shes never napped longer in a pram.
Do you think maybe cap nap 2 at 30min then? Or cap nap 1 at 2h to move nap to up and give her a longer a before bed time? Although how long should it be after a cn?

If it was me Id cap the catnap at 30 mins. Hopefully an extra 15 mins of AT before BT would help. At 9mo mine would rarely do any less than 3h before BT and average AT for 8-10mo is 3-4h.
