I know this topic crops up in many threads, but I just wanted to ask whether you would let a morning nap for a 15wk old go on and on (as DD has been for 1.5 hrs now). Yesterday it was 45 min and the day before 35 min. WTF? Assume she needs the sleep?

Btw I just dropped something on the floor (and was about to kick myself) and she didn't even twitch!

Heck that's so young, they can sleep for hours! Mine used to sleep up to 2-2.5 hours at a time at that age.

I didn't really regulate how long mine slept for at that age, they woke up when they woke up.

my dd is 15 mo - she went down for her morning nap at 9am and I can still hear her snuffly snores over the baby monitor! I say let your dd sleep.

I would enjoy the peace! When DS sleeps longer it's usually because he needs to - growth spurt or coming down with a bug...

If you can't lie-in when you're 15 weeks old when can you? grin

Definitely let her sleep - but don't tiptoe round the house either

Thanks for the reassurance smile Instead of resting I just folded laundry...

Yep let her sleep... dont believe the books that say if they sleep too long in the day it ruins the night... it's rubbish! My DD (18 weeks) sleeps for 2 hours still... I only wake her if she's about to sleep through a daytime feed

Growth spurt = lots of eating (fuel) and lots of sleeping (time out to grow). Enjoy the peace.

my 12wk old will sleep up to about 3 hours at a time. I let her sleep for as long as she needs too.

She sleeps longer when upstairs in her moses basket then when out and about or in her rocker. I dont tiptoe around either, the tv is on and im busy doing the housework ect.

I generally find that the better she sleeps during the day the better she sleeps at night.. (usually 8pm till 5/6am with a dream feed at 11pm)

If like this morning she fed at 8 am then fell back to sleep till 11 I take advantage to have a little lay in myself wink

Id say let her sleep
