Infant sleeping extreme hours and has ear infection
Patient : My son who is 5.5mos was diagnosed with an ear infection yesterday. He slept for 17 hours last night and once he woke up early afternoon, he stayed awake for only 2 hours and has now been back asleep for 4.75 hours. Should I be concerned he is sleeping so much or is this normal? He has only had 6 oz. of formula, today. Please advise.
