Post subject: 2 much sleep?
My son will be 6 months old next week and he has had symptoms of teething for about 2months!!!
lately he has become worse, he has really red cheeks and even a red nose, he looks like rudolph
He sleeps from about 7pm till 6.30am each nite and when he wakes I feed him and hes awake for about an hr before getting really cranky as though hes really tired..... he then goes bk to bed for between 1 and 2 hours and is fine for about half an hr after waking up, then gets really cranky and upset and irritable as though hes tired again!?
I dont really no what 2 do with him..... could it just be his teeth irrritating him and making him miserable or could it be something more???
He seems to be sleeping for ages?
Anyone got any advice???

when my daughter was that age she would sleep 12 hours during the night and have two 1 hour naps during the day. so if he is sleeping he obvioulsy needs it so thats not a problem. as for hm being cranky it is probably just his teeth. make sure you are applying teething gel as it will soothe the pain for him.
