  • I don't remember my son doing that. Doesn't mean its not okay though. Maybe ask his or her doctor when you can

  • sounds like a growth spurt. my son went through 3 of them before he turned 1. he would sleep ALL day, literally. he'd wake up to eat breakfast, lunch,and dinner and right afterwards he'd be right back to sleep. and he only had a bottle with a lil bit of baby food each meal. started sleeping through the night at 6 months, so before that he woke up for his midnight bottle but then went back to sleep then as well. just enjoy it while you can :)

  • Well, I started to say no, but it would be normal during a growth spurt, however a growth spurt won't last more than 72 hours. So if it continues, I'd call the doctor.
