Is She Sleeping Too Much?

My daughter used to sleep 13 hours a night and then she would take a 2 hour nap during the day. She was sleeping the usual amount (15 hours a day), but the last few days she's been sleeping in late, jumping her sleeping time to about 17 hours a day, and today she slept about 19 hours. Is this normal? She sleeps in late, and still takes her usual nap at the same time. I'm just wondering why she's sleeping so much.

  • How old? Babies often eat and sleep more during a growth spurt.

    If sick, it could be any combination. Some kids will sleep more when sick to let their body fight. Other will sleep less becasue of pain. Mine always ate less too. I'm not sure if that's typical.

    Just some points to consider.

  • She's 7 months old. I love that she literally sleeps the entire night, not the famous "8 hour" thing. She sleeps (normally) from 6 pm until 7 or 8 am.
