Sleepy teething baby?

My 7 month old, almost 8 months, is getting her bottom teeth in..all four I believe! She has been sleeping way more than normal, like a 3 hour nap and 12 hours at night. Is this normal? Anybody else’s baby really sleepy when teething? I know a lot of babies sleep less when teething so I’ve very grateful she is sleeping. Just want know if anyone else is/was in the same boat!

My 6 month old currently seems to be nursing less and sleeping more (at least for the past 2 days or so) and I’ve been curious why. After some research I’m guessing either teething or a growth spurt. Just kind of stresses me out a little because I don’t want it to effect my milk supply. I know all will be well! I have just been pumping while he naps to make myself feel better 😬

My son slept quite a bit more during teething which is super normal, plus it's possible your little could be hitting the growth spurt early! Enjoy it while you can momma!

Yes, I’ve got 10 month old twins and they sleep a ton when they’re growing or teething. Usually they sleep 12 hrs at night and then about an hour nap in the day but during a growth spurt or in the days leading up to a tooth breaking through they’ll sleep 12 hrs at night and 2-3 hrs in the day.

All babies up until the age of 3 should be sleeping up to 14 hrs in total. 12 at night and 1to 3 hrs in naps. My son sleeps almost a full 14 everyday. So that completely normal and good for them actually. Just make sure when ur little one is awake they are getting all that energy out! :)

Ive done my fair share of research, i could look and send u some info if you like i didn’t save anything since it was just for my personal knowledge. Up to 3 year its recommended up to 14 hrs of sleep. Obviously not all kids will sleep 14 hrs. But because i strived to make sure my son was getting the full potential sleep. I do notice he is much more sharper then 80% of kids (boys) his age. He learns a lot of things a lot faster because his body and brain are well rested. I assure you it’s possible only because he sleeps at 8pm every night and wakes up at 7 to 8 am every morning. Yes he’s younger so he does occasionally crys im the night some times but most nights he sleep well. And what ever he doesn’t get in the night he makes up for with his nap time. With only 1 nap at 12pm . But again all kids are different and everyone has their own way..

Who informed you it’s 14 hours total? The pediatrician told me only 8 at night
