Hi everyone.
Just a bit of background, my 8 month old lb has chicken pox. Not too surprised as his 4 year old sister had it last week.
My question is how much should he be sleeping?
On a normal day he is awake around 7am, nap at 1030am for 45 minutes, nap at 130pm for an hour and bed at 7pm. (He sleeps through for 12 hours).
Today is the second day with the chicken pox. He was awake at 630am this morning,had breakfast and went back to sleep around 830, woke up at 10 and was back asleep at 11am. Had lunch back to sleep around 1pm, and its now 3.35pm and hes still fast asleep. Should I be worried that he is sleeping so much?!
Thanks x

My dd3 at 9 months had it a few weeks ago. She slept about 16 hours a day for a few days.
