My Baby Wants To Sleep All Day
When traveling w/6 months old to country that is 9 hours ahead will it cause my baby sleep all day(now he sleeps all night)and be awake through night?
It may take a few: days for your baby (and you) to adjust to the time difference. Depending on when you are leaving, you may be able to help that transition, but adjusting his sleep schedule a little bit at a time before you go.

My 3 months old baby cries out loud every day at night only before going to sleep all day he is active and feeds well what could be reason ?

Probably depression: Depressed people can have a more agitated type of depression where sleep is poor, anxiety is high & appetite poor, or the opposite may occur where they sleep all the time & eating is a compulsion that has nothing to do with appetite (or hunger for that matter). Obviously there are various combinations of the two. Is sleep and eating an escape or substitute for something missing? See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
