Baby sleeping ALOT

My daughter who is 11 weeks has started sleeping ALOT -very out of character for her. She was colicky up until 2 weeks ago. She eats every 3-4 hours (wakes for her feedings) but goes right back down... then she'll have an awake period from about 6-12AM. Is this normal? I'm thinking she is going through a growth spurt or maybe this was how she always was and her colick was keeping her up? Any thoughts? Did any of your babies go through this?

could be a growth spurt, or maybe she is catching up since she didn't sleep much with the colic? I wouldn't worry though.

It could be a growth spurt. As long as she's eating and having 6+ diapers in 24 hours then I wouldn't worry too much.

3 months is a growth spurt. It can take a week or two for it to normalize.

My dd is six weeks old, and sleeps all day! I usually keep her up for a bit before bed time, so she will let me get some sleep. My two year old is crazy!

I looked it up babies still sleep 16-20 hours with about 10 being at night around 3 months.

My dd was never a daytime sleeper she's 14 wks now and is up most of the day- in sure your baby's fine like the other mommas said as long as she's eating and wetting I wouldn't worry:)
