I'm starting to worry about one of the little boys I look after. He's 18 m.o. and sleeps so much and when he's not sleeping, he's awake but looking exhausted.
His parents wake him at 7 so he can get dropped to me and the other boy I look after. By 9 he's exhausted and will grizzle and lie on the couch with me or go to sleep if I put him to bed then. He will sleep for at least 3 hours. I can't hold him out past 10, so he's usually in bed by 9:30/10.
Then when he wakes up, he has lunch, plays for a bit and same deal - 2 hours after waking, he's grizzling, only wants to be carried and if I put him in his cot, he'll fall asleep. For 2 or 3 hours.
And then he goes to bed at 7.
I'm really worried there's something up, surely needing that much sleep isn't right? I want to tell his parents my concerns, but only if they are actual concerns...
