I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH A BEAUTIFUL 3 MONTH OLD BOY. BUT I AM WORRIED HE IS SLEEPING TO MUCH. HE SLEEPS 10 HOURS A NIGHT. HE WAKES UP I FEED HIM CHANGE HIM THE I EITHER PLAY OR READ TO HIM. ABOUT AN HOUR OR 2 HE FALLS ASLEEP. HE WAKES UP AND I START ALL OVER AGAIN. I KNOW I SHOULD BE HAPPY BECAUSE I GET SLEEP BUT I AM WORRIED

lisa,

I am not a medical professional but I am a mother of 2. My son slept all the time. He was sleeping all night long at 3 days old. I think if you are truly worried maybe you should call your doctor just to settle your mind. I hope everything is fine. Some babies just sleep more than others. Best of luck to ya and congratulations on being a mom.

Dear Lisa,
I don't think there is reason to worry, so long as he is feeding well and not constipated ( I assume that since you haven't mentioned it), then it's just his body needs.

Yea, my son would sleep alot/all night, during infant stages, we never worried, we just were very glad that all the horror stories of sleepless nights never came true :lol:, i would just keep being the good mother u seem to be and feed him well and enjoy ur sleep. 8)
