Since yesterday afternoon all my 2 month old as wanted to do is sleep. She hasn't been up more then 1 hour at a time. Does it sould like she's getting sick? Also I've been giving her gripe water for colic, so I don't know if that's making her sleepy or if she's trying to catch up on what she's missed due to the colic, what do ya'll think?

Sounds normal. Emma went through bouts where she'd sleep almost all day at that age. Cherish it. Hee hee! Even at 4 months old she still has days where she naps for hours on end. Especially after a bad night of tummy aches.

As long as the baby is still feeding normal and not running any temps, ect - I would not worry. Especially if it only lasts a few days - remember most sleep alot more when they are going through a phase of their growth spurt!

Heather was thinking the same as me! My daughter sleeps a lot if she is going through a growth spurt. I also find that if we are out at my parents, and she misses her bedtime, she sleeps a lot more the nest day or 2. Keep an eye on her temp and her demeanor when she is awake. If everything is normal, I wouldn't worry too much!

My son is 4 months and sleeps all the time!! Only short naps but about 6 or so a day. I let him sleep as much as he wants, otherwise he is grouchy. :) Good luck

Two months sounds about right for a growth spurt. My kids both sleep a lot when they're growing...then a couple days later they're not sleepy anymore and their clothes are all too short.

i miss those days...they say during a growth spurt they will sleep son is 6 months old and skips naps...i'm lucky if he will take 2-20 minute naps during the day! it drives me insane...he does sleep 11-12 hrs at night and sometimes he doses while he's nursing. cherish this time b/c the naps get fewer as they get older, at least in my case they did.
