Sleeping too much?

My DD is 6 months old and it seems to me that she takes too many naps. She takes one almost every 2 1/2 - 3 hours. And not because I want her to, but because she just wants to sleep. Is this too often for her age?

  • lol ok so this is normal for her even at 6 months? the only thing is i feel like it interrupts her sleeping through the night, and because she has a little tiny heart defect (not too big of a deal), but the doctors are always asking me if she sleeps a lot.

  • Yea it's probably a growth spurt...they usually will sleep alot more than usual when they're going through one. Enjoy it while it lasts! lol
