    My 3 week old has been sleeping ALL DAY today. Usually she stays awake for an hour at least after every feed but today she has been awake for about 20 mins total and it's mid-afternoon. I have to force her to wake up to feed. She is also being very fussy. She is feeding more than usual so i assume she is going through her 3 week growth spurt, but can you reassure me that this excesive sleeping is normal at this time? Thx

    Thanks for your replies. For anyone else in a similar situation, I have done a bit of research into this and also spoken to a HV and friends and yes it's normal! Wish I'd taken the opportunity to catch up on my own sleep instead of worrying and googling lol
