Too much sleep? — The Bump
Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Too much sleep?

My son will be 8 months old on the 25th. He sleeps 12 hours a night then takes two naps during the day that are usually about 2 hours each. Is this too much? I know I should be grateful that he's sleeing but I can't help but worry :(

    OP, so normal and most moms with a fussy baby would love to have their child be good sleepers. My LO starting by 2 months is a poor napper giving 20 mins to 1 1/2 hrs of sleep at naptimes especially in daycare....sometimes or not at all!! BUT an awesome nightime sleeper...finally some rest and fair trade off!! At home on weekends, I get him to nap longer by nursing him to sleep in bed with me during the day which get him at least 2 hrs in mid morning, 45 mins in mid afternoon, and 1 1/2 hr sleep late afternoon. Long stretch of sleep at night with one wakeup at 6mos.
  • Sounds like our little one:)  Her naps are not quite that long but usually between an hour and hour and a half:)
