Just fussy?

My little boy is 11 weeks old. he sleeps from like 10-30 until 10 the next day ( gets up to eat about two or three times) and i give him two 2 hour naps in the day. when he is awake he will be happy for about an hour and then start fussing/crying. Is he just a fussy baby, could he possibly need more sleep??? he does have acid reflux also, could that be a problem?

  • Sounds like a normal baby to me?

  • When my baby was that age she was taking 4 naps a day. Just a thought. You could try putting him down for another nap even one at 8:00 pm in a swing or something- just a little cat nap, but not in his bedroom where you put him down all night.

  • Sounds like he may need a nap. My dd would get fussy after only an hour of being awake and I knew it was time for a nap then.

  • I believe some babies are fussier than others. My dd would be one of the fussy ones. She has a very short attention span and gets aggrivated with toys very easily. I am constantly changing what she is doing so that she doesn't get angry. I am hoping that once she is on the move and a little more into toys she will outgrow it a bit. So do whatever makes him happy. You could try a carrier, my dd loves being carted around. Good luck!
