My baby is three months old.She never cries unless shes hungry and even then its really not a cry cry. She seems to sleep way to much I do have other children but I never knew a 3 month old to be this calm and sleepy She seems to only wake up to eat during the day and goes back to sleep.She is already sleeping from 7 to 7 every night allthough im not complaing it worries me.She has been to all her check ups and she seems fine. She is hitting her milestones. The only thing out of character is her belly is abnormally large I have had her seen for it doctors also say it looks strange but have found nothing wrong.Why cant I shake this worried feeling. My husband thinks Im crazy.

My daughter was/is a sleeper too :D It made me worry constantly! I was forever googling how many hours should a 3 month old sleep (I don't know why it's not like the answer had changed from the last time i looked LOL), but I ended up just accepting that she needs her beauty sleep and needed more sleep than the average 3 month old. She is now going on 6.5 months and has cut out a massive amount of daytime sleep/naps.

Is your baby, when she's awake, interactive, alert, interested in her souroundings etc etc? if she is then she's perfectly fine, she just needs more beauty sleep than the average child. Ask yourself, "am I just being a mummy and worrying because that's my job, or do I truly feel there is something wrong with her deep in my gut"?. IF you truly feel there is something wrong with her deep in you're gut then take her to a doctor and keep taking her until you find one who listens/finds out what it is. Always trust you're instincts/gut and never ignore them :D

When you have a good baby like this we mums do worry. My first son was an angel doing all what your daughter does and I thought he was ill. Sleeping all the time and not really crying at all. I think we were just lucky my other children were a handful to say the least! Don't worry if you have mentioned the tummy to the doctor and he is not worried then you have no cause to worry either. Enjoy your angel!
