Most newborn babies are asleep more than they are awake. Their total daily sleep varies, but can be up to 16 to 18 hours. Babies will wake during the night because they need to be fed. Being too hot or too cold can also disturb their sleep.
By the end of the first month your baby will sleep 13-14 hours per day spread across day and night. As your baby matures the sleep requirement of 13-14 hours remains much the same with the length of time your baby sleeps at night increasing.
During the day your baby will have longer wake times and up to 2-3 day sleeps. If your baby wakes up happy he has probably has had enough sleep.
Most babies don’t stay asleep for more than two to four hours at a time, day or night, during the first few weeks of life. The result – lots of sleep for your baby and a very sleep deprived schedule for you!
You’ll probably be up several times during the night to change, feed, and comfort him. You need to have a rest during the day, even 25 minutes will transform your tiredness.
