Sleeping patterns

Hey mamas!  I feel like LO sleeps a lot so I just wanted to hear some of your experience :)  She is 7 months actual today, 4.5 adjusted.  She has always been a good sleeper. She currently sleeps a solid 12 hours at night and during the day she usually wakes, eats, plays for about an hour to 90 minutes then sleeps for 1-2 hours then we repeat until bedtime.  Does this sound like the right amount of sleep?  Too much?  Thanks!!

Re: Sleeping patterns

  • I'm a big believer in there is no such thing as too much sleep [as long as they're growing and developing appropriately]. At that age my boys were on a very similar schedule.

  • Sounds about right. DS was a sleepyhead too & I let him be.

    Enjoy it! ;)

  • That sounds about right, and is approximate to our schedule at that age.
