  • How ever many they sleep. lol Unless a baby is colicky or sick they're going to sleep just as much as they need to. Average is 3-4 hours at a time but my son would go an easy 8-9 hours at night as a newborn. Every baby is different.

  • Depends on the newborn really.

  • Really as much as they want... they will just go to sleep if they are tired. They usually sleep 16+ hours
