For two days she has done nothing but sleep. I hope she is ok. She seems to be. I get her up and feed her, and within the hour she is back asleep for like 3 to 5 hours. Then I get her up, change her, feed her and within the hour she is back out again.

She is 5 and a half months old this week, is this typical? She hasn't slept this much since she was a newborn.

So, I get Bad Mommy of the Year Award. Today I put her in her bouncy seat and checked my email real quick. Not even TWO minutes... I didn't strap her in. When I went back out there she was on the floor!! OMG I about died. She didn't fall or anything, just sorta slinked out of it onto the floor. She never made a sound. LOL

I was MORTIFIED. I always strap her in, not sure why I didn't this time. UGH. Bad bad mommy. She was just laying there, eating her hand and smiling up at me. *sigh*

She is quickly outgrowing her clothes. For anything that is one piece, I have her in 6 to 9 months and they are getting too small. She is so long. I am thinking about getting some of those extender thingies for all of her onesies, because this is just rediculous. !!!

Picture post coming this weekend... Hope everyone is well!!

don't feel bad, we all do it. I did the same thing when my daughter was younger than maya. I had her in the swing with the strap on, and i didn't put the tray on that goes between her legs. somehow she wound up on the floor in a matter of seconds....seconds. not a peep. just wormed her way out and onto the floor. lol
i laugh now, but i was so upset then.
Thats funny.
I'm not sharing my bad mommy story, it might land me in the hands of DSS.
I will also not share my bad mommy story; it's much worse than yours.

About the sleeping, I don't know if it would be considered normal or not. Lila has never been much of a day sleeper. You could always call the pediatrician's office and ask them. That's what I'd do.
Maybe she's going through a growth spurt??? I know my baby always sleeps and eats more when that happens.

I also won't publish my worst mommy's pretty bad and embarassing :-) But at least I know it won't ever happen again.
I cannot even tell you how many times Sophie has come off the sofa. It sounds like a growth spurt to me, but whatever it is I am very jealous because Sophie does not sleep during the day.
N fell off the couch at two weeks old - I thought he was secured inside the big Boppy, but nope. I was on the phone with the pediatrician's at the time, ironically, and the nurse assured me he would be fine. But I was so shaken, and Todd was insisting we call an ambulance! Ahhhh, first-time parenthood. ;-p

Both my boys would sleep like that during growth-spurts as well. If she keeps it up more than a couple of days, I'd talk to the doctor just to be sure though.
