Sick baby

So my baby girl is sick...and this is going to sound really dumb. But is it ok to let her sleep as much as she wants!?!? Or is she going to get dehydrated??

  • How old is she and how is she sick? Have you been to the doc? Does she have a temperature? Are you giving her any medication?

    Need more info before anyone can really say yes or no....
