Hello ladies. My baby is 12 weeks. She is a very quiet baby. Just that I think that she sleeps a little bit too much during the day. Unfortunatelly if I try to keep her awake she is very fussy and screams like she would have colics. Our day starts at 5:30 am. Morning walk at 7:00 with a 45 minuts nap, then another one between 9:30 and 11:30 when she stays usually awake just to feed and by noin she is back in dream land until 2:30-3:00. And again back to sleep between 4 and 5. Imagine that by 7 she is so done, is a real war keeping her awake until 7 for bath time. What can I do??... She doesn't care about toys... Playing, singing, holding in my arms. And imagine that by 8:30 is with angels sleeping until morning with only one feed. Is anyone on the same situation?

Babies sleep a lot. As long as she is having some alert periods (sounds like she is)... don't worry so much. Let her sleep when she needs to. She should start having some longer alert periods soon, but babies grow a LOT in the first year and eating and sleeping a lot is how they grow.

Sleeping, feeding, pooping, sleeping some more, eating some more, pooping some more, sleeping again... All normal.
