I would like to know how much sleep babies should have a day on average,my little one is 3 months old and is sleeping at least 17 hours daily, and was wondering if this is too much sleep for her age group?

the guideline given by my dr was 1-4 months "average" 15-16 hours, 4-12months "average" 14-15 hours then 1y-3y "average" 12-14 hrs in a day. some sleep more some less. sounds like your little one is a good sleeper, congrats :)

oh man, consider yourself lucky haha! My little guy fights sleep so much!! He sleeps in 3 hour increments at night which I am happy about but after 9 o clock he fights napping so stays up until 8 at night, and is very very cranky by that time. The other babes I know at this age sleep around 16 hours or so too!

My little guys is 12 weeks and he sleeps about 17 hours as well. It is very broken up throughout the day but he does get about 17. I however do not know if this is normal.
