  • Let him sleep =o)

    Seriously, though, you'll miss these days when he's teething or fussy and keeps you up all night!

  • Honestly, he might just be feeling extra sleepy! My guy did this right after his last growth spurt: he was awake and eating ALL the time...and then a few days later was just the opposite. If you're really worried, call your doc and see if you can come in a day earlier, otherwise just discuss it with him on Friday.

  • He doesn't have a fever or any illness symptoms, does he? It's probably just what I said above. :)

  • I forgot to add: sometimes, when they go through growth spurts, this is what they do. Sleep. And sleep and sleep!

    Do bring it up to your doctor, but I wouldn't wake him up. Def. keep an eye on him and if everything looks good: you're good!

  • Take a nap. He is having a sleepy day and will be up all night most likely. :) Keep an eye on him though, he may be coming down with something.
