    too much sleep!!

    Not meaning to sound smug or tick people off but can a baby have too much sleep?

    Our 7 month old sleeps 11 hours at night, another 2 hours in the morning, an hour and a half at lunch time and then another hour in the afternoon. Often I am the one to wake her up and shee still seems really tired most of the time. Is there something wrong?

    I asked myself the same question sometime. My girl turns 12 months a week ago and have to sleep for at least 15 hrs per day. 12 hours at night time, 1 hour after breakfast and at least 2 hrs at lunch time.
    If I remenber it right, when she was 7 months, she also slept for an extra hr (or even more) in the afternoon.
    I have asked two pead., both of them told me I should be very happy because baby needs sleep.

    Is it not worrying that she still seems tired even when she is awake?

    If she still seems tired you might want to get her checked out but otherwise just sleeping a lot is no big deal.

    My 14 month old goes to bed at 7.30 and wakes anywhere between 8 and 9. He's even slept til 10 on the odd occasion!

    He's been like this pretty much since birth. He also has two naps a day, one for an hour and one a bit longer.

    He is really healthy and when he's up he just doesn't stop for a minute so I figure he needs his sleep. They do their growing when asleep which might explain why he is so tall!

    i wouldn't be worried, my 6.5 mth old only can stay awake for max 2 hours. He is on an amazing schedule and he loves being structured and is very happy:

    He does:
    1.5 - 2 hour morning nap (wakes at 6:30 or 7 and is back in bed by 8:30ish)

    1.5 - 2 hour lunch time nap 12 - 2pm

    1 hour in the late afternoon 4:00 - 5:00

    In bed at 7pm and wakes at 6:30 or 7am

    mine doesn't sleep much - ~8pm to ~6am, plus 2 to 3 x 30min to 1 hour naps. I wish he could sleep more. I found that my bb's milk intake correlates with sleep. The more he sleep, the more he drinks.
