My baby has been sleeping funny is this normal?

One day my 8 week old will sleep all day and only wake up to eat. And the next day he'll only sleep for a total of 3 hrs. And he's been sleeping for the past two day only waking up to eat. He has a doctor appointment on Friday. I just want to know if it's something the doctor should know about.

  • ANYTHING your baby does should be brought up to the doctor. How else is the doctor going to monitor his development or be able to tell you if things are well with the baby?

  • You can bring it up. I always looked to see if they were getting enough fuids, food, checked for fever or any signs of illness. If none were present I chalked it up to a growth spurt.
