Naps...morning Or Afternoon

I have a 17 month old little boy. Always been a great sleeper (10-12 hours at night) 2 two hour naps each day).

Obviously this isn't enough because he becomes really cranky. I don't know what to do.

Setting a Nap Schedule

As an aside - I do know that his teacher rocks him to sleep (or rubs his back) and then places him on his cot where he can sleep soundly for up to 2 hours. However, on the weekend his schedule is totally off. We generally get in the car to head to breakfast on an activity around 9am, at which time he will take a short cat-nap. Because of this nap, he does not seem tired or...
