What do you think?

My 4 month old seems to be sleeping and napping a lot more this past week than normal. Is this normal? Should I think anything of it? He hasn't acted different so I was just wondering.

  • Perfectly normal!! Their sleeping schedule will fluctuate for a while. Often that extra sleep and/or eating means a growth spurt is coming!!

  • That's what I was thinking, a growth spurt. Thanks ladies! :)

  • mine is almost 5 months now..and around 4 months she started doing the same thing..i figured a growth spurt because shes still acting completely normal, just getting tired faster. i used to try and have her on a schedule, but now its just whenever shes ready..i go by her schedule.
