about sleeping

My 6 1/2 month old seems to sleep alot through the day she sleeps through the night she gets the amount of sleep she usually get but if she sleeps 2 hours she wakes up and with in the next hour is grumpy and tired again and it seems to be like this alot through out the day she eats fine everything just sleeps alot I can get her to do 3 naps a day which those might be 1 to 2 hours each nap. She goes to bed anytime between 730-8 so she gets her sleep. What do you think? We are pretty sure she is teething but we have been thinking that for over a month cause you see white where teeth could be but not teeth yet and do you think its a growth spurt cause this has been going on for 2 weeks or so?

  • if you see white where teeth are shes probably teething, it may be a combo of teething and a growth spurt my daughter went through a big one at that age, and she got her first tooth at 6 months so that is about the time that she should be teething long as she is otherwise fine, i would let her sleep as much as she wants, unless it goes on for too much longer, i'd say if it goes on for a month to call the doc. they change their schedules and feeding habits so much in the first year that they really only have a normal for maybe a few months

  • it can take a very long time befor the teeth poke threw, it could be teething or a growth spur.
