DS normally sleeps from about 8pm to 7am (11 hours though he does wake up to eat in there) and then has two 1 hour to 1.5 hour naps in the day (around 3 hours for naps). He's been right on track for amount of sleep in a day.

But for the last week he's been sleeping in and getting almost 13 hours at night and then his naps are both displaced and way shorter than normal. If he sleeps super late I only do 1 nap, but it's still fairly short and he has to stretch longer than usual between sleeps.

I thought sleeping extra at night for a growth spurt or milestone mastery only lasts a few days but this has been going on for a full week. Any ideas what's going on? Should I be waking him up in the morning instead of letting him sleep late?

Thanks!

My DS started the same thing around the same age. He's 11 months now and still sleeping that way. I wouldn't worry too much as long as he's getting enough sleep and it sounds like he is. I'm a big believer in just letting baby figure out how much to sleep and when. Sounds pretty normal to me!

sooooooooooooo jealous. I know I am giving my guy what he needs, but it would feel so good to get more than 3 hours of sleep!

Oh, I'm not even getting 3 hours of sleep. He rouses every hour or two to nurse, but he doesn't wake all the way up, so I count it as sleeping as long as he's in bed.

I feel your pain!

It is normal for them to transition to less daytime sleep and more nighttime sleep. My DS dropped his second nap and went to one nap a day around 9-10 months old.
