Is this normal?

My baby usually only take 20 min naps throughout the day. The last two days he's taken 3 hour naps. Is this normal? Is he possibly getting sick or maybe going through a growth spurt? He's 5 months

  • I think he is going through a growth spurt. As long as he isn't running fever or having any other strange symptoms, I would just enjoy the extra time to get things done. My 1st son always took two 2-3hour naps until about 2yrs old.

  • probably a groth spurt but keep ur eye out for a fever, or him getting sick after he eats, and runny diapers

  • my daughter did that randomly too. and then she would start eating a lot. then she would have a growth spurt.

  • It could be either... if hes eating less or running a temp I'd take him in.
