he could be ready to drop a nap? are you still putting him down for an am and pm nap? perhaps he doesn't need one or both naps anymore (some babies drop both naps after a year) and that is what is interfering with his night sleep? also consider that summer is upon us and with it earlier light (and chirping birds etc) in the mornings. perhaps this is what is causing him to wake up earlier in the am?
by a year, most books say to drop the afternoon 3pm milk - they only need 2 milk feeds a day (300-350ml) at this age.
