Very sleepy 7mo baby

Hello there - ds is 7mo (5 mo corrected for prematurity) and for the past week has been sleeping much more than usual. He is alert and active when he is awake and doesn't have a temperature but the time between naps has shortened and he gets very grumpy very quickly. He is also sleeping through the night occasionally, which is unusual (but I'm certainly not complaining).

He's been on solids for a few weeks, is piling on the weight and has very rosy cheeks so I don't know if the sleepiness is weaning, growth spurt, teeth or some combination of all three! Has anyone else had a similar experience?

my 7 month old has had to have a 3rd nap again, after having dropped it nearly a month ago. Piled on the weight but last 2 days refused to eat. Has slept through once last week - the 4th time in his life blush. It will all change again soon IME - just let them sleep.

Thanks iwantitnow - I guess it's just a phase, and I'll just have to see what happens next. Wellbalanced - will keep my fingers crossed that you get some calm nights too. Sleeping through came out of the blue after months of major night feeding so hopefully you will get more sleep very soon smile
