My LO is sleeping like crazy today... Last night he slept for about 4 1/2 hours (maybe 5, I am not sure, we both fell asleep nursing). He got up and had his morning gas and BM ritual for a few hours, then nursed for a longer time than he normally does, and then fell asleep. I actually had to wake him up after three hours and nurse him, then he slept four hours and I nursed him again... he doesn't have a fever, when he wakes up he is alert and normal... everything appears normal other than he is sleeping alot (I may pay for this tonight)
I have heard that when babies are growing they sleep alot, is that true? We went through the cluster feeding at 5 wks, which I thought was his 6 wk growth spurt early.
Normally he sleeps for 15 - 30 minutes between his feedings (every two hours like clockwork) until his night nursing then he sleeps for four hours and then we are back to an 1 1/2 to 2 hour nursings with short cat naps.
Just wondering if there is something I should worry about. (other than a possibility of not sleeping tonight)
