Or do you just let them sleep as much as they want? My son is almost 8 weeks old and he is still sleeping so much. Like today he has been awake maybe a total of 2 hours since about 8am. He wakes up to eat, but its like he cant fully wake up, and then if I try to play with him or keep him awake he cries and is soooo crabby. My last baby was 14 yrs ago and he wasnt a good sleeper so this is new to me.Is this ok sleeping ?And when he has lazy days like this, he still sleeps good at night, so its not that he has the days and nights confused either.thanks!

That little I just let them sleep as much as they want -- their brain development is greatest when they sleep - and the way newborns naturally sleep (the amount of REM, etc) is exactly perfect for optimal development. So I figure my job is just to work with what baby needs to do. :-)
You might want to get hold of a baby carrier like a sling, you can find lots of info at The Babywearer on different types and the benefits. Worn babies, even if they sleep a lot in the carrier, tend to sleep better at night. It also just makes life easier for you!
