Is this a normal sleeping pattern for a baby?

Is it normal for an almost three-month-old baby to sleep 8 hours or longer at night but take short naps during the day? My baby will have a bottle between 5:30-6:30, then will fall asleep between 7-8:30 and will sleep until 4 am then fall back to sleep, then wake up 3-4 hours later.

My most recent baby did that from like 3-5 months (he just made 5 months) & don’t sleep during the day or at night :joy: enjoy it.

all babies are different…my oldest who is now 5 years old, had a schedule to the point I could wake up 15 minutes before she did and the bottle was perfect temp by the time she woke…my second was and still is a wild card and my 3rd is a baby I have never seen before…he is just over 4 months…by 2 and a half months he was on baby food…depends on baby

Thats amazing. Most babies are opposite. They wanna be up all night and sleep all day. You got lucky! :sweat_smile:

My daughter sleeps through the night and wakes up when the sun comes up. Its a blessing. Usually a small 15 minute nap or 2 a day. It’s great. She’s almost 8 months and she’s never stayed up all night.

Mine slept pretty good except when he had ear infections or colds :woozy_face: almost 4 and still a good sleeper and napper :raised_hands: cherish it lol

Seems like a long time and some people will tell you to wake your baby up every 3-4 hours but. Babies will wake when hungry or crabby. Every baby is different. Consider this a blessing!!

Wow , your Lucky my almost 3 month old only has cat naps during the day but once 10pm hits he’ll sleep majority of the night wakes up for two feeds usually round midnight and then 3-4 am back to sleep till 6-7.30… he is breastfed… I’d considered it a blessing :slight_smile:

Both of my kids were like this.

I think it’s okay but I would still talk to his dr about it at his next appointment. My son has a heart condition where he goes into SVT (his heart beats way too fast and sometimes it doesn’t even beat it just vibrates which untreated can eventually lead to heart damage) I’m not saying this to scare you but one of the side effects is sleeping more than normal. Its just one of the side effects though so it probably isn’t this but I would still mention it just to be on the safe side. It does sound like he is just a great sleeper! :blue_heart:

100% normal!! My daughter is 3 months old and her naps during the day rarely go over an hour, she sleeps through the night (10:30pm-7:30am).

My kids did that too.

You are lucky it could change in the future ⚘

My 4 month old sleeps 7:30pm till sometime 9/10am, waking up 1-2 times for a bottle. Then will take a nap about every 3 hours but its a 20 minute nap at most.

my baby is 3 months on Friday and has been doing yhis on off for a few weeks now xx

Every child is different so don’t compare to anyone else. Enjoy it all because he may change it up on you . Your baby will let you know if he’s hungry or poopy butt.

Enjoy your sleep now!! It won’t last.

My first sleep through the night right from the start and would power nap during the day. My second however slept all the time, he wouldn’t even wake up for feedings, we waited many times for him to wake for feedings to no avail lol, had him checked by Doctor. He even slept during bath time lol. So your baby is just being a baby, as long as they are fed, cleaned, burped and most of all loved all is fine. Sleep times will change, sometimes good, sometimes not. Enjoy the ride.

My daughter was like that. Her pediatrician told us as soon as she got back to birth weight we could let her sleep through the night
