My 3 month old is still sleeping like 18 to 20 hours a day. There have been days, somrtimes a few in a row, where she is awake more, but she is still generally still verry sleepy. I am just wondering if this is sill "normal" or if it sounds like something I should contact the Dr. about.

Mi dd is doing the same thing, sleeping more, she is going to be 15w this weekend, and I think she is organizing her sleep patters. Also I found that when she is awake, she is really into things, looking and wanting to grab things. It could also be that she is getting ready to go into a growth spurt.

At night she sleeps about 10-12hrs, then during the day she takes anywhere from 3-5 naps most of them of 30mins but some of 1-2hrs. So yeah, I would say is normal, unless you see your dc really tired when he/she is awake.

Definitely enjoy it while you can!!! DS has never slept like that. I am lucky if he gets in 2 30min. naps a day...he is 9 months. But he sleeps great a night.
