yes it sounds normal..if she is out of routine, she may have some cholic or acid reflux so really I would have her checked out, is she breast fed or bottle fed ad it may be the formula needs changing

He is formula fed. I think it's bc my baby sitter ( my sister ) lets her sleep all day now the poor thing hates it. She's great at night tho.

well 9 weeks old do sleep a lot but it could be baby is missing his mom, I suggest you cut the hours of work,if you are working 9 weeks old needs mommy around ..also what routine has your sister got him/her on I would check it out ....does she have good knowledge of looking after a baby this young ?

No my sister only does what I tell her too. Well she did. She rather my daughter sleep all day then hear her cry. I'm at my wits end with trying to stress how important it is for her to play w my daughter and keep her awake more and not make her sleep. Now she's holding her the whole time while she sleeps which I am guilty of as we'll. I have been holding her til she sleeps then I put her down if she cries I lay with her til she sleeps again. I can't afford not to work.
