My 7 month old ds has been asleep for 2 hours now!!

He woke at 7am, fed, played around for a bit then I put him down for a nap at 9am and he's still asleep! It's 11am now!

He's been doing this recently - he'll only have maybe 45min naps during the day but has a huge sleep in the morning...

Should I wake him up?

nopegrin my 2 week old sleeps for 2 hours at a time and no way would I wake her. DS used to sleep for 3-4 hours at a time at 7 months...woke when hungry. I don't think 2 hours at 7 months is excessive

Def not, let him enjoy his sleep and enjoy your time off. My DS recently stopped his 2hr sleep (17 weeks) and only has 45 mins ones - you've given me hope they'll return.

No.
There are few unbreakable rules in my house, but to never wake a sleeping infant is one of them...

No. My 7 mth old often sleeps for 2.5 hr stretches during the day. Having had a 'non sleeper', it's bliss.

No No No!!!

Nevr wake a sleeping baby, in my house anyway.

Unless it's very ate afternoon, evening etc...

Both my dc's slept for up to and sometimes over 3 hours. And then sometimes slept again.
