Short napper

My 6 month old's naps only last for 15 minutes at a time. He takes 3 a day. I've tried putting him on his back and belly but nothing makes a difference. The only time he sleeps for long periods of time (45 mins) is when I hold him. I don't want to get into bad habits so I just let him take these short naps. Any advice?

    I've been using his Johnny Jump up before nap time but no change. I did notice he takes a 1/2 hour nap if we go swimming for 2 hours!! Unfortunately I can't do that every day! LOL ;) He still wakes at night....mostly just once or twice. Since he started teething however he wakes every three hours again. Good thing he's such a cute little booger or I think I'd run away! Hee heee hee :) The thing is he's such a happy little fellow even with the 15 minute naps. He rarely ever fusses (unless his teeth are bugging him) & barely ever cries. He's always smiling.....(another wonderful feature that keeps me from banging my head against a wall.) :) :) Thanks for the advice :)

      I guess I just let them sleep on me so I am not much help either.
