BR: Sleep, opposite problem

Note:  I am not trying to be funny, sarcastic, or anything else.  If you're sleep deprived, you might not want to read on.  It's a real question.

How much sleep is too much?  Molly has been STTN for a while now, but this is crazy.  Last night she slept from 9-9.  Today she took a nap from 2-5, plus another short nap before noon (maybe 1 to 1 1/2 hours).  And... she's asleep again. Since about 8:45.   I'm a little worried that she's sleeping too much. 

The doctor said between 12 and 14 hours a day is normal, but she's way past that.  I took her temp and it's normal.  Is there a reason she might be sleeping all the time?  I actually took her to a party tonight and she slept right through 30 people singing (or yelling) the Happy Birthday song. 

Should I be worried or just STFU and move on?

Re: BR: Sleep, opposite problem

  • Ummm, yeah... STFU. NO, I'M KIDDING!

    My best guess is that she's getting ready to go through a growth spurt? Or you just have a little mini Jane! ;) 

    Count your blessings lady. :)

  • Like everything it depends on the kid. Some sleep more, others sleep less.

    Jane slept from 7:30P - 8:00A and napped for 5 hours today (two, 2.5 hr naps).  For her some of it is making up for not sleeping at daycare.   She is also a heck of a lot older than Molly.  I think at Molly's age, as long as it isn't negatively impacting her night sleep, I wouldn't worry about it :)    So, yes, STFU and enjoy :)

  • Natalie's 18 months old and sleeps from 9-9 solid and has a 2, sometimes 3 hour nap mid day.  I notice she sleeps more when she's about to grow, and it sounds like that is what's going on with Molly.  Has she had the hiccups lately?  My doctor swears that growing, sleeping, and the hiccups are all interrelated.  Who knows?

    I think it sounds like she's fine. :)  And yes, we are lucky ladies to have hard-sleeping babies.  We had the mother of all storms here the other night... it was honestly the loudest storm I've ever heard in my life.  It woke DH and I out of a dead sleep (and DH sleeps like a bear), but not Natalie.  A train could run right through this house and she's stay asleep.  Her teen years are bound to be interesting.

    She has!  That's strange!  I'll take it.  She's also been a little fussy, but I'm thinking that might be teething (drooling, chewing her hands, etc.).

    She is a really easy baby.  I'm a heavy sleeper too.  When I was younger, a house blew up 3 blocks away.  It shook our house so badly pictures fell off the wall- and I slept through it.  Sometimes I worry that I sleep through her crying, but DH is a really light sleeper and she hasn't been up.

    Thanks ladies.  I feel the love ;P    I'm sure my next LO will pay me back big time.

  • I've always had great sleepers.  Abby slept from 7pm-7am at 12 weeks, and would take a 1.5hour morning nap, 2-3 hour mid day nap and then a 2 hour nap from 4-6.  The twins will do the same thing, but they don't usually take a nap later in the day.  She could be going through a growth spurt too.  I wouldn't worry and just enjoy the sleep!  LOL

    Interesting... Landon had the hiccups for several days in a row, then he wanted to eat like crazy and now he is sleeping more.

    Zac has the hiccups all. the. time.

    But he's short, round and hates to sleep. LOL! :)
