    Default Sleeping alot

    My bubs has always been a good sleeper but i'm a bit concerned maybe she is sleeping too much. She is 14wks (15wks thur) and we put her down at about 7-8pm, ahe wakes around 7am has a feed then goes back to sleep at around 8am - then wakes again about 11:30am, then falls back to sleep at least twice during the day for about an hour.

    Should I be worried or am i just being silly - when she is awake she is very alert and bright as a button.

    sounds like you are incredibly lucky and have a healthy, happy baby who doesn't fight sleep!! Enjoy, you never know whats around the corner!!

    their sleep needs vary, but i think around that age they are not 'meant' to be up for longer than around an hour and a half (correct me if im wrong someone)...

    if she's feeding well and happy and alert when she's awake i wouldn't worry... i am incredibly envious!!

    sounds like u are doing a great job

    Natalie was the same and i worried about it too. She still sleeps a lot and is cranky when she doesn't get her sleep (takes after her dad!!) but she does resist sleep come night fall... hmmmm

    Sounds fine to me. Don't worry. She's just too content with the world.

    Hopefully this sleeping ability won't leave her........... hopefully............

    She's got a lot of growing to do. It can wear wee ones out!

    She sounds like a normal 15 week old bubba. She could be having a growth spurt too. My little girl used to sleep through the night and have three two hour sleeps thorugh the day. It changes as they get older and need less sleep.

    Yep sounds like you got lucky
    My first bub was just like that, loved her sleep and never had any problems sleep-related.

    I won't scare you with tales of what the second one has been like
