Hello,

It is not unusual for an infant to have variations in the duration of her sleep. It would be of greater concern if her sleepiness continued for several days or if the sleepiness was accompanied by fever, rash, vomiting, or poor eating and drinking of liquids.

Should she have any of these other signs, then, yes, you ought to take her to a physician. Preferably one who is comfortable examining young children.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Arnold Zedd, Pediatrician
