When is your baby sleeping too much during the night?

I have a three month old baby and starting about a week ago, she began sleeping from 10:00pm to 9:00am and even then she not crying but I pick her up and feed her anyways...Is this normal? Or should I be picking her up earlier then I have been?

I never thought babies could sleep too much. She's growing at an astonishing rate (as all babies do) so she's understandably exhausted. Enjoy the quietness while you can and I would keep doing what you're doing. Sounds like a normal baby to me. :)

I wouldn't worry about it. Does she seem fine during the day? Or is she lethargic and not wanting to do anything (I know at 3mo they can't really do much but you can tell if her behavior has changed to be more subdued than before). If her mood appears to have changed negatively than I would speak to your pediatrician. Otherwise, consider yourself lucky :) If she's waking up at 9am and not crying that's great! They don't always need to cry for their mom to know they're hungry and that is a good thing :)
