  • All babies are different but as the days go by you'll see them awake more and more. There is a book I got at Walmart and you can of course find it at the book store. It is called Babies First Year. If you are a 1st. time mommy it is really helpful.

  • This is funny.. One day you will ask a question "When will this child go to sleep" LOL.. The baby will become more awake as time goes on. Just try to enjoy it.

  • They will sleep up to 20 hours a day for the first 6 months, enjoy the sleeping while it lasts because once they are awake and mobile you will be exhausted chasing them saying no don't touch that no don' put that in your mouth, no don't take your diaper off, enjoy the sleep.

  • "up to 20 hours a day till 6 months". That would have been a sanity saver some of those days. My daughter is very anti-nap and has been since she was really little. In the next few weeks I bet you will see a change. Congrats on your new little one.
