Welcome to XXXXXXX

I understand that your baby is 5 months old and has increased sleep duration. I would be able to guide you better if you could provide me the following details.

Is there any fever, cold, cough at present?
Is she on any medication?
Has her growth in terms of weight and length been good till now?
What kind of feeds is she on?
For how long does she sleep in hours ?
Any abnormal issues related to her birth ?

Do get back with the answers to my query so that I can help you better.

Take care
