A newborn will sleep and eat more than anything in the first several weeks. I couldnt even have counted the naps if I had tried as thats all mine did. I would say it is normal for a baby to be awake more than to just eat up to 30 minutes a few times a day for the first month or so grqadually getting more often and longer stretches as they grow. But every baby is different.

They eat, sleep and poop all day. and that is all they do. No seriously, a typical newborn will sleep somewhere between 18-23 hours a day.
