I am 3 weeks pregnant and I understand I need more sleep and I'm more exhausted than before, but my year and a half old daughter is also sleepin more than usual. She use to take one nap and fall asleep around 9 pm, now she takes 3 naps and falls asleep by 8 pm she wakes up once at night for a bottle but that's it till 630 am
Is this normal?

My son did something similar around 1 years old and we found out he had low iron. Of course, I am not one who believes that we should always blame change on sickness, so maybe her body is going through some changes. My son went from two 2-3 hour naps a day and sleeping all night to sleeping all night and one nap a day after his iron came up. You might call your pediatrician and talk to a nurse to see if there might be other signs to watch for. I just know once I found out my son was anemic, I knew what to watch for from then on and sleep was a major sign.
