Our little Pip is almost 4 months old and he sleeps a lot! He is my third child and get this ladies, when he is tired he doesn't want help going to sleep. He wants space. So, if i hold him when he is tired he flips out. If I lay him down in his cosleeper he sucks his hand and immediately falls asleep. The other day I thought it would be nice to take a nap with him and I tried to cuddle in my bed with him and he flipped out. When I left him to sleep on his own, he fell right asleep. It is the strangest thing! My other two were SO hands on as babies and would never go to sleep by themselves. I am not complaining! Anyway, he sleeps most of the day away and sleeps all through the night too. After sleeping the night away, he wakes up long enough to nurse and be changed in the morning and he goes back down. I think he is only awake for a couple (or maybe 3) hours (spread out) during the day. Does this seem strange to you?
He is alert when he is awake and smiles and coo's, and is discovering his hands. He also loves to go for walks in the sling during the day. If he is awake, he loves being held and talked to.
