Sorry another sleep post, this time for my 12 week old

She is a great night time sleeper but will only catnap in the day (30mins a time) - I don't want to fiddle with this as she's happy & healthy.

However this morning, went down for her nap after hour & half awake and just over 2hrs later is still asleep!! Various household noises have periodically woken her but before I could get up to her she's put herself back to sleep.

I've heard of the 12 week sleep regression but thought that caused LESS sleep. Growth spurt causing her to sleep maybe?....

Shall I just stick the kettle on for rare cup of hot tea and stop panicking?

It's not a sleep regression, it's a sleep progression! Babies get older, not younger.

12 weeks is also a good time for windiness and tummy issues to settle down a bit so that's probably what's behind DD suddenly being able to sleep properly without discomfort waking her up.

Christ .
You sound like you want her to have cat naps .
Enjoy .
My 21 month old has never napped longer than 30 minutes.

DD started having a long afternoon nap around this age, although she'd often wake a couple of times and need Resettling (quite easily). It was obvious she needed more sleep as she'd be crying with her eyes closed.
