    For the last week or so Phoebe has been a lot more alert and has been awake for most of the day.

    However today all she has done is slept, she had a really good night last night only woke once for a feed instead of her usual two. She had half a bottle at half 7 (she only had 2.5oz) and fell asleep again til half 9.
    All she's done is sleep and feed all day and she's only had two feeds since half 9 this morning. She's fell asleep on every bottle too and slept all the time inbetween.
    Is this normal?

    Yes its totally normal, babies your LO's age need sleep every 1-2hours for around 60-90mins at a time. Its hard to believe but its true. They can get overtired if they dont get that, which doesn't always mean they are grumpy, but means that they struggle to sleep the next time.

    Babies dont work the same was as adults....the more sleep they have the more they want. And the less sleep they have the less they want. Some ppl think if LO is up all day they will sleep well at night, when its the opposite.

    Good luck
    :)

    Yes, especially if it is growth spurt time! Holly does that now still, she goes for a few days with minimal little naps then has a day of monster sleeping!
