My child is currently over 9 months old and lately he sleeps more. In the morning after bathing, around 8 o’clock he sleeps until 10 o’clock, after MPASI and drinks milk after 12 noon, he usually sleeps again, until 2 o’clock in the afternoon. In the afternoon after MPASI and taking a bath he will sleep again at 4 pm to 6 pm. at 8 pm he sleeps again and usually wakes up at 12 pm, sleeps around 2:00 in the morning and at 5 am he wakes up, at 5:30 he sleeps again and wakes up at around 6:30, is my baby still normal?

Sleeping needs of babies under one year of age or 9 months of age, on average most of the time of day is used for sleep. The sleep needs of each baby's age are also different, but on average about 12-14 hours of sleep needs of babies taken within 24 hours. Even baby sleep patterns sometimes vary, where this can be influenced:
1. influence the habits of parents in their activities at night at bedtime
2. busy parents in the morning until night
3. ambient temperature
4. the atmosphere around the baby
5. baby's health condition
So it is not uncommon for children to often still play, because in the hours of sleep, busyness at home is still active and when meeting with parents occurs in the hours of sleep. So that the baby's sleep time can shift. However, over time, the baby's sleep habits will be able to adjust to their needs. So that the baby's sleep patterns take more time at night after 7 pm, and in the afternoon between 10 noon to 3 pm around 2-4 hours in one or two nap sessions. Therefore, in general your baby's sleep time is sufficient, which is around 12-14 hours, and your baby's sleep schedule is generally still within reasonable limits for your baby, even though your baby's sleep at night is around 7 hours and is insertion of time wakes up two hours.
At the age of 9 months, sometimes babies can wake up from hunger in the early morning, but also do not wake up, and both of these are still within reasonable. So, if you can optimize your baby's sleep time at night about 9-10 hours at night, then this will help the baby's sleep patterns better, although babies need to drink at dawn, but usually can go back to sleep quickly. This can be practiced gradually, with appropriate sleep patterns, ie 10 hours of sleep at night, 4 hours of two phases of sleep during the day. Your baby's sleep habits in the afternoon can be reduced little by little, so that your baby can move and socialize in the morning and evening with the surrounding environment.
In certain conditions, such as when the baby is sick, the baby's sleep needs will usually increase, so that the baby's sleep patterns when sick will follow your baby's sleep needs.
If you are worried or anxious about your baby's sleep patterns, you can consult your pediatrician for growth and development. The doctor will conduct an interview regarding your baby's current sleep patterns and make sure there are no side effects that affect it. If needed, your doctor will recommend a good baby sleep pattern and baby sleep practice, so that the baby enters optimal sleep habits.
For now, evaluate whether you and your family are busy at bedtime, so you can limit and control this. Encourage socializing with the home environment or neighboring environment at optimal times, both in the morning, evening or night as needed.
