Sleep Question?

My baby is 2 1/2 months old now. She has been extremely crabby the past 2ish weeks. Yesterday she had slept basically allllll day. Meaning she slept from 8:30 am until 12:3o pm. Ate an ounce and a half. Slept from 1-5:30. At 2 ounces. Slept from 6 until 9:30. At a half an ounce. Slept from 9:30 until 12:30 am. Ate 3 ounces. Then slept from 12:30 until 5:30. Ate 4 ounces. 6am-10:00am. Ate 3 ounces. then slept until 3 pm. Ate 2 ounces. And now slept from 3:30 until 8:45. Eating 4 ounces. She is sleeping allllllll day, and barely eating anything. She normally eats 5-6 ounces a feeding every 4 hours.

  • Maybe she is just sick. You should take her to the doctor!

  • She may be sick or my children often ate much less just before hitting a milestone, but I don't think they started it quite that young.

  • My baby is only a month, but he's done the same thing and the following day is hungry and eating all day long... Maybe this a normal "growth spurt" kind of thing?

  • Maybe she just needs a routine? Try feeding her every 3 to 4 hours and have her eat more than just a few ounces at a time. Then maybe she will sleep better ounce she is on a set schedule. Maybe try and play with her for a hour before bedtime to keep her up so she sleeps better through the night, but every child is different:)

  • I would take her to a doc. That doesn't seem quiet right for a growth spurt or milestone hitting.

  • Hmm i never dealt with that at 2 months but during her first few weeks. Could be a growth spurt. Anytime i had questions i would phone the public health nurse. I live in canada so it might be different but they hada number that you could call whenever. Helped me alot.
