  • Infants go thru growth spurts and its not abnormal for this to take place for several days to a week. They grow the most when they are sleeping. If it concerns you contact your physician.

  • A growth spurt. They usually get on at around 2 months. Some babies sleep alot, some eat alot, some just stay fussy all day. As long as he's getting enough to eat and not running a fever, I wouldn't worry for at leat another day. BUT if you're really worried PLEASE call his pedi. That is what they're there for! Good luck, mama!!

  • It could just be the weather or it could be any # of things so you should just ask your pediatrition cuz as much as we all think we may know what is going on with your child...we dont and they do! GOOD LUCK i hope all is well.

  • they sleep a lot more when their bodies are growing. Just enjoy it! And check on him frequently. Awesome if you have one of those baby monitors w/ a video camera!
