I don't think a baby can sleep to much but possibly at the wrong times . If you let them sleep all day then they will be up at night or if they nap to close to bed time it may be harder to get hem down for the night .


I don't think that a baby can sleep too much. I think that as long as your baby is eating, growing, and meeting developmental milestones then there is nothing wrong with the baby wanting to sleep a lot. I have four children and two of my children slept a lot more as babies then the other two. I think just some kids need it more than others. A lot of growth a brain development happen during sleep too so sleep is important. I also notice my kids slept a lot more during growth spurts.
