    This is probable a stupid q but im a tad worried. My 5 week old has slept loads more than normal today. Hasnt had that much awake time and when he does he just wants fed then falls back asleep. Is it normal for them to have days like this? Were doing a rough EASY routine which would normally have awake time in between eating and sleeping but hes only awake when im changing him (when he has screamed).

    He wasnt awake any more than normal through the night easier so cant explain it.

    It could just be a growth spurt. Is he eating the same amount as normal and producing enough dirty nappies?

    Vinnie did this on Monday and still slept through the night. I think it could be the 6 week growth spurt, some babies wake more some sleep more. Vinnie made up for it Tuesday though by staying awake all day lol xx
