  • when my daughter was 4 months she couldn't be awake longer than 3 hours straight n would take 2 hour naps or 2.5 hours. and sleep the whole night, just wake up for feedings n finish sleeping. so thats like 15 or 16 i think.

  • My daughter is 4 months old, she wakes up at around 8 in the morning, stays up for 1-2 hours, then sleeps for around 2-3 hours, wake and eats, then she goes back down for another nap which usually lasts around 4 hours, then gets up again for another 2 hours, back to sleep until around 9 pm. Eats her last feeding, and then goes straight back to sleep for the WHOLE night! I didn't think this was normal and my doctor told me I was blessed! So I have a really sleepy baby!

  • Be careful your baby isn't sleepy from overfeeding.

  • Your very welcome! I was extremely worried about how much she slept too, so at her 4 month check up I made sure I brought it to my ped's attention.. She just looked at me like I was nuts LOL! Glad I could make you feel better! Oh and my baby isn't overfed either, she is a healthy weight, and by far not overfed!
