I know this is rare,but I'm worried my nearly 19 month old is sleeping too much. ohmy.gif

For instance, last night he ended up going to bed at 6.15 as he didn't have a sleep at daycare. It is 8.15 and he is STILL ASLEEP! Fair enough he might be catching up but over the last week or so he will generally sleep from 7 to 8 plus have a 3 hour nap during the day. Previously it would be 7 to 6 over night, so 2 hours extra a day.

Otherwise he is his normal self. Do I worry or put it down to a growth spurt?

If he isn't showing any other signs of being sick I'd suspect just a growth spurt or just being worn out and tired.

I'd probably put it down to either some catch up sleep or a growth spurt, but I'd keep an eye on him anyway. He might just do this for a few days and then go back to normal.

I wouldn't worry if he is his normal self otherwise.

My kids do (or did at that age) 12 hours overnight as a general rule and 2 hours during the day so he is not that abnormal.

My 20 month old does 12-14 hours overnight and 2-3hrs during the day. Some nights I know its becuase he actually spends time awake in the middle of the night (just not making much noise, but will be rolling aorund and sitting up, with some talking etc which I often just go back to sleep and wait for him to actually cry) we figured this out when we got a video monitor. However other times he will sleep pretty much the whole time.

ETA and he is still asleep at 10.15, trying to stop myself from waking him as we will be out again tonight. He went to bed at about 8.30 last night, after a massive walk around the beach etc
