Default My Hamster Sleeps Too Much

Hello! I was wondering if my hamster is sleeping too much. He is seven weeks old. He wakes up at 8 pm, then goes back to sleep like 10 pm and wakes up again at 12 am-1 am. I guess he then sleeps at like 7 am. He wakes up during day to eat and turns back to his hut. He runs at the night as well.
So, does this sleep pattern too weird and he sleeps to much? He looks healthy and normal in other ways. I also sleep too much so maybe he is just like me, but.. I wanted to ask.

No, from the times you listed that sounds perfectly normal. Hamster will get up to have snacks and/or pee during the day and you can't expect them to be running around like mad all night. Mine sits down next to her wheel every now and then for "breaks" but some prefer to do that in their nest and some do sleep in their nest during the night for a bit. Every hamster is different.

It is very unlikely that your hamster sleeps from 1 - 7am and then through the rest of the day. He/she probably gets up again once or twice for a few hours during that time to do whatever it is they do at night when you're sleeping. The best way to find out your hamsters schedule is to set up a camera and record all night. You need a huge memory card though and looking through it can be very boring.

I am glad this is normal! He is my second hamster but I noticed that they are all different. Since my first hamster used to run wildly and almost non stop at night, I assumed they are all same. When I am writing them my hamster Casper woke up again and started eating. 😂
