    Default Let sleep or wake up?

    Ds3 (4mths old) went to bed at 445pm for a nap. He usually wakes at 520pm and then bedtime at 7.

    He hasn't woken up yet from his nap. It's now 7pm.

    Should I wake him?

    if he is gaining weight, normally well and happy and feeds ok ... then let him sleep.

    they change sleep patterns all the time. This might just be him learning to sleep a little longer

    I would be inclined to let him sleep. He might be having a growth spurt or teething, anything really that requires that extra sleep. My youngest who's 2 will still on an odd occasion change her sleeping patterns and have an arvo nap and not wake till the morning.

    Hell no! Kick back and enjoy

    If bub is gaining weight and is healthy, let him sleep.

    I would wake up. But I believe in schedules and he's 4 months old, not 4 weeks old.

    But it also depends on your baby. How does he sleep at night? Do you have any sleep issues?

    Never wake a sleeping baby! Isn't that the golden rule?

    Im inclined to say wake up.. only because when ds did this as a baby he would then wake in the night more or wake very early in the morning for the day because he went to bed for the night so early (not intentionally) so next time we will be following a schedule and seeing if that works because letting ds do his thing didnt work for us. Good luck I hope whatever u did worked out!

    Woah the apps playing tricks on me, I didn't see the replies till now!

    He slept till 830.
    We had a 45min sesh together and then back to bed.

    I just didn't want him to wake up for the day ridiculously early, but it was fine.

    Thanks for all the replies x
