  • 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.
