    Default 4.5 month old sleeping too much during day?

    Hi all, I have a beautiful 4.5 month old girl, who is sleeping pretty well at night (bedtime at 630-7, dreamfeed at 1030, feed at 3 then morning awake time varies from 6am onwards). She usually has a morning and afternoon sleep of about 1.5-2 hours, and then a little nap in the arvo aswell. BUT today she has slept for like 6 hours so far, its 430 and shes still sleeping!! She doesnt have a temperature, and is very happy when awake but just doesnt want to stay awake very long???

    Maybe a growth spurt? My DD always sleeps heaps when she's going through one.

    My DD would often have two three hour naps until about 8 months. Is this unusual for your DD? If she doesn't seem unwell, I certainly wouldn't worry. She could very well just be having a growth spurt.

    My dd would sleep for ages at 4.5 months. Usually 10+ hours overnight and she'd probably be awake for 3 - 5 hours during the day, so adding that up she'd probably sleep for 16 - 18 hours each 24 hours. If bubs isn't unwell, there's no such thing as too much sleep!

    I'm going with growth spurt as well. I once put DS down for a nap at 1pm and wanted to wake him at 4pm but DH told me not to. He ended up sleeping from 1pm-7am the next morning. He only grizzled for his feeds that night.
