My LO will be 10 weeks old this Sunday and she has been a decent sleeper (although a total night owl) for several weeks now. Generally she goes somewhere between 6 1/2 - 7 hours between feedings overnight (2-3 hours between during the day) and sleeps about 12 hours a day in total. But the past two days she has been much fussier than normal when awake, and sleeping longer in the morning.
So last night I fed her at midnight, and she fell asleep at 1 a.m. She slept until almost 9 this morning, fed, went back to sleep for another 3 1/2 hours, fed, and is now asleep again. Basically it's almost 4 p.m. and she has only woken up three times to eat, probably staying awake a total of 1 1/2 hours (if that).
I left a message for our pediatrician just because it's not her normal behavior, but should I have scheduled an appt. or is this just another one of those things our LO's do to throw us for a loop? Doesn't help that she already has a clogged tear duct AND last night I accidentally nipped the tip of her finger with the nail clippers - absolute trauma for both of us. (Although she has since gotten over it and I haven't.)
