  • for the most part yes some babies just want to sleep...... I know people who have babies that will sleep all day unless they wake them up......everyone is different

  • Absolutely normal!! Enjoy it while it lasts. Lol. Get rest, clean the house, spend time with the other kids! She will start being awake more during the day. My 3 year old still sleeps 12 hours. My 2 year old sleeps 12 hours plus a 2 hour nap, and my 10 month old sleeps 12 hours and takes two 2 or 3 hour naps!

  • sounds pretty normal to me. my son was sleeping a straight 10-12 hours by 4 months and still taking 2 naps during the day around 1-2 hours each.

  • Sounds normal to me. My daughter has always slept a lot ever since she was born. 6 hrs at a time at 3 days old, and gradually increased to where she was sleeping 12 hrs a night at 4 months old as well. On about 3 occasions she slept almost 14 hrs straight.

  • Wow that sounds perfect.
    My 5 month old goes to sleep at 7 and wakes up at 6.
