Owen has been napping for almost 3 hours!!!<br><br>
Is he ok? This is so unusual. An 1.5 is usually a good nap. I got so much done. But I have to leave in 15 minutes and I don't want to not get to hang out with him before I go.

Why not? I remmeber the first time my DS slept for almost 5 hours straight one afternoon. I kept peeking in on him - was he sick or something? No, he was fine. It was just a long nap, when his usual time was 2-3 hours.<br><br>
DD is 2.5 months and during the day she has a few 10 min power naps, and usually 1 or 2 long napps, which can be anywhere from 1 hour up to 4 hours. Regardless, she sleeps well at night. My advice - never wake a sleeping babe. They know what they need. Maybe they had too much stimulation or too much exertion or are fighting off a cold you don't know about. They are good self-regulators.<br><br>
And the better they sleep in the day, the better they sleep at night.
