    Default Is it normal?

    For a 12week old baby to only be able to stay up for 50-60 mins awake time? My LO will generally only be able to stay up 50-60 mins before he gets extremely grizzly and fussy, then its sometimes almost impossible for him to fall asleep because i think he is overtired?
    Is this normal?

    Im pretty sure its perfectly normal from what I have heard, my DS was exactly the same at that age. Sometimes he would start showing tired signs 15 min after waking!

    I would say that sounds fairly normal, my DS was very similar at that age, if you are concerned though I would go see your DR or a MHN and have chat to them

    It's very normal = ) DS will be 10 months Old in a few weeks and he can only stay up for 2-3 hours at a time. The older they get, the more they stay awake.
    Just follow bubs cues and let bub sleep when they're tired = )

    Yeah, I'm remember my MHN saying "sleep begets sleep". It's all normal.
