3 1/2 month old on 2 1/2 hour schedule

DD is just 3 1/2 month old and seems to settle into a 2 1/2 hour day time routine. I feed her, play with her for 1 1/2 hours (including feeding) and she is down for her one hour nap. Is she napping too much? She would have 5-6 naps a day. Her night sleep would not begin until 9-9:30PM and she gets up around 6-7AM.

Should I try to reduce her naps in the day time? It is hard to watch her yawning and not to let her sleep. Any suggestions?

i might move her bed time back 930 is pretty late for an infant. then id probably try to get 3-4 longer naps. she should be sleeping 15-16 hours a day at least and pref 12 over night, and dont be surprised if she switches things up again babies are always changing
