My 3 month old is sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night

She co sleeps with me and feeds plenty of times during the night.

But she is very like clockwork about sleeping 12 hours at night.

The sleep calculator says 15 hours total sleep. Which is about right. She takes short naps during the day.

Seems like a lot of sleep at night?

  • Better go find yourself a couple of goats to sacrifice to the Sleep Gods. Publication of sleep patterns tends to make them strike in vengeance! **grin**

  • Mine were all sleeping around 9-10 hours/night at this point, wiithout waking to nurse. As long as she's happy and gaining weight - great!

  • All I can say is be grateful that you can sleep now. My youngest has always been a good sleeper, while my oldest has never been.

  • In answer to your question (about whether it seems like a lot for that much of her total sleep to come at night), that is what I could expect with my little ones. It was generally 12 hours from bedtime until waking for the morning.

    They also always had a morning nap that seemed to come relatively early, given the amount of sleep they'd just had!

    When they began to cut down on their daytime sleep (dropping to two distinct naps, then dropping to one daily nap, then dropping naps altogether), they kept the long nighttime stretch throughout. So they ultimately went to no naps during the day, and 12 hours at night. Then eventually, down to 11 hours at night (etc.)

  • My daughter does seem to nap really early for just having that much sleep too!
