  • Well, thats a long time to be sleeping & I personally would wake her up. She needs to eat. Any idea on why she is sleeping like that? If not, I would figure out. Is she sick?

  • I would let her sleep. Probubly a growth spurt. Shes sleeping for a reason. My son did that when he was growing. Id prob wake her up after a 12 hour stretch. To get some food in her.

  • That is a long time. I would most likely wake her up if it seems that she is sleeping that long for no reason. That meaning, I know when my babies got shots they would sleep like that. So if she got shots yesterday, then this is probably normal.

  • Babies can sleep anywhere from 12-15 hours at night. That would almost normal since she didn't go to bed until 11 pm. I would start moving her bedtime up so that she's going to bed at 7 and waking up around 7 or 8 am. But yes, I would wake her up because now she will be probably be awake all night.

  • My 5 month old sleeps 12-14 hours most nights. Some days he takes a good nap. Other days he just dozes on and off throughout the day. I wouldn't worry about the need to eat so much. She will wake up when she is hungry. You might consider waking her up though so that she sleeps at night.

  • I would wake her. even if you rouse her just enough to eat. she needs nourishment.
