day sleeps for a 5 month old

My 5 month old is a pretty curious little fella - into everything! Until very recently he slept nicely in the pram or baby bjorn, so I've been out and about, putting him to sleep in the pram (flatten down and cover) whenever he got cranky. The last couple of weeks he has started refusing to sleep when we are out, just screaming and wanting to be held when he gets tired.
Does anyone have any tips for how to reteach him how to sleep in the pram? I really don't want to have to be at home most of the day!

Move really fast? Sorry, that's probably not very helpful! Could just be going through a clingy phase too, they pass.

If you figure it out, let me know. DS will only sleep in his cot, unless he's totally exhausted. He won't even fall asleep in the car! On the plus side, he's pretty reliable in his cot.
How many naps is he having? Around that age DS started to shift to two naps that were pretty predictable, and it made it easier to get out and about even when I had to take him home for sleeps.
And it gets trickier to go out and about when they start solids anyway - it's just that much more stuff to remember to pack!

He's still having 3 sleeps a day, but the afternoon one is often rubbish. He's pretty grotty by 9am, so I don't think we're ready to drop the afternoon one yet. I was hoping there would be an easy answer, but I guess I should be thankful he sleeps well at home.
