Hello and hope you are doing well.

Babies generally sleep well for long hours, so it is difficult to detect symptoms of narcolepsy. But according to studies done a baby can have narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, sleep paralysis, cataplexy where the person has episodes of loss of muscle function while awake, hypnagogic hallucinations and automatic behavior. This may be difficult to detect in babies. Please consult a sleep specialist for further information.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
