  • babies can sleep up to 16 hours in a 24 hour period and when they do it means they are going through a growth spurt and in your case she is probably growing as well as teething

  • Have you checked if she has a fever? Sometimes, they will sleep alot, but if she is really fussy when she is awake, then it might be wortha call to the ped . . just to ask. Is she eating, drinking, wetting and pooping like normal?

  • Yes its ok for her to acting like this..for one shes cutting teeth and she could be going thru a growth spurt..give her something frozen that she cant choke on, (popsicles) and maybe a lil infant tylenol..i hope she feels better soon

  • We were told by our pedi as long as DD is not running a fever and she's eating, she's ok :)
