I know a lot of babies who would rather take smaller, more frequent naps rather than one large nap in the middle of the day. It could just be that this is a more comfortable format for him. If not, then a good napping schedule and naptime routine help a lot. Just like bedtime, choose a small routine that helps him recognize that it's about to be naptime. Keep him awake and active as much as possible but he is still an infant, it might be better if you split it into two naps each day. That is what I did with my daughter. One in the late morning and one in the afternoon. Once she was about 1 1/2 or so, I dwindled it down to one nap a day.
