question about my 9 week old

My 9 week old has started sleeping A LOT. She was getting up at night every 2-3 hours but now she is sleeping 8-9 hours at night and sleeps most of the day...

Is it normal that she's sleeping so much?

  • She's probably fine, just worn out. Call your pediatrician if you think it is something else

  • Don't get used to it! She may be going through a growth spurt, and needs her sleep.
    How is she eating? If she is eating every 2-3 hours during the day and having at least 6-8 wet diapers in 24 hours, she is probably fine.

  • Perfectly normal. Be glad she's sleeping. As long as she's eating, wetting enough, nothing to worry about.
