Is this normal or should I worry?

My 8 month old son has been sleeping all day. He's taken 3 naps already and he slept well last night. He's not running a fever or gassy. Is this normal or should I take him to the doctor?

  • Some days they want more sleep than others. Some days, he might not take a nap at all. I agree with WhiteTigerLily. He's probably going through growth spurt. My 18 month old does that every so often Try not to worry unless he starts having other symptoms.

  • Could be he is having a growth spurt. Just like when they are first born and sleep a lot, if he continues to do so or is lethargic when he is awake I would for sure see a doc.

  • My DD does that once in a while too, its prob a growth spurt.
