Q.

sleep (when is it too much)

Hi Doc
My 13,5 months old boy has recently started to sleep through the night. But i am concerned because he hasn' t dropped the number of times he sleeps. When is it too much for a very active walking baby?. For Example, he sleeps at 08:00pm and will wake up ataround 04:30 and 05:00 in the morning. Then will sleep aroun 10am for about an hour. Play and then will sleep again aroung 15:00 for 2 hours. Is' nt this too much?

Not at all. You are fortunate that your baby has such a normal and natural sleep pattern.
