DD is my first and I am not sure if this is normal but she doesnt sleep very much. I bedshare with her in her room and in the last 3wks she has started waking up sometime during the night and staying awake for 4-6hrs then falling back asleep for 2-3hrs(if we're lucky). She also started fighting her naps and can go days without napping then she will nap for a few days straight 2hrs. We keep her very active to try and tire her out but its not helping. We have had the same bedtime routine since she was a baby.
We used to get in bed by 730-8 but in the last week i tried moving it to 830 and she still wakes up. We always keep everything dark and have a fan on for white noise. The dark doesnt seem to phase her in the least. She climbs off the bed randomly and plays w/whatever she can find in her room then gets back up when she wants to sleep. Or other times she will just lay next to me and giggle hysterically and talk.
She has no health issues and has always been in the 90th percentile for growth. She has a pretty good vocabulary for her age and has hit all her milestones. I guess my question is...could it be that she just really doesnt need that much sleep? Her mood is good too. She doesnt show signs of being overtired or anything. Im just at a loss. Should I just leave it alone? TIA
