Between Susan and I, we have never had children that were big sleepers. Jackson has rarely slept 11 hours straight in his life and he certainly didn’t sleep through the night consistently as a baby.
But my little Olivia is becoming such a big sleeper I am starting to get a bit worried! She consistently sleeps through the night (usually between 5-7 hours) and of course I am THRILLED!
But last night Olivia slept from 1am to almost 11am! She had her shots yesterday (we are almost a month late for her shots because she had a cold at her 2 month check up) and not only did she not get a fever, she wasn’t even fussy. She was her usually happy, smiling self. Olivia has now learned to laugh out loud too – and she was giggling and laughing away during her bath and nighttime routine.
I kept waiting for her to get fussy – and thought she would be up in the night. But no. She slept, and slept, and slept!
I think I will talk to the doctor about it. But because Olivia is a healthy, chubby baby and growing really well, I think she is probably just fine. I cluster feed her in the evenings so she is getting quite a bit before bed.
So my question for you all, have you ever heard of a 3 month old that slept for ten hours?
