Should I let him sleep as long as he wants?

My 13 month old has been sleeping for almost 3 hours. Should I wake him or let him sleep.

  • My philosophy is never wake a sleeping baby. (Unless of course it becomes a habit and it is interfering with nighttime sleep)

  • I'd let him sleep and take advantage of the alone time :) I always let my daughter take however long of a nap as she wants. It has never interfered with her nighttime sleeping :)

  • I agree with the previous posters, enjoy the time! Everyone once n a while they just seem to need a bit of extra sleep.

  • I don't wake him up, even after 3 hours. Our schedule is "flexible" to say the least, some days hanging out at home, some days running errands or dr. appts, some days for parks or Chuck E Cheese, etc. so I let him catch up when he can. Take advantage of that time, it won't last forever! LOL!
    PS-They also sleep alot during growth spurts.
