  • How long is he sleeping?

  • If he's not sick then it might just be a growth spurt. I know my two slept more when they were growing. If it's a big concern you can always call his Ped.

  • It's probably a growth spurt! I remember my son sleeping a lot more during certain stretches, 2, 4, 6 months. Enjoy it because pretty soon he'll be fighting with you for nap times....=)
