Default 30 Minute Naps

I have a 5 month old (that I've had for about 2.5 months) that will NOT sleep more than 30 minutes at a time and I'm losing my mind

He was sleeping about 30-45 minutes in the morning (around 10/10:30) then would sleep for 3-4 hours in the afternoon. At about 4 months, he stopped doing this and will take 3-4 tiny naps during the day. Figured it's just sleep regression, but a month later and I'm going crazy! (I've had kids that last 2 weeks, but over a month is new to me)

He's only here two days a week, and one of those days I have another little one (that usually naps about an hour each time)

Any tips for getting him to sleep longer than 30 minutes? He's SO crabby all day and I'm at a loss..

One of my current 2 year olds was exactly like this and he still sucks at sleeping. He was a serial cat napper from the time I got him (12 weeks) until he wasn8 or 9 months old. Honestly he still sucks at sleeping but thankfully for me his issues are now mostly at night and I actually have to wake him up from naps here.

In your case itís probably because of only being there two days and Iím not sure anything can be done about that.

Do you get him up when he wakes up? I would leave him the remainder of nap time. It sounds like he hasn't learned how to go back to sleep after the end of his sleep cycle.
