  • A 3 week old will probably sleep for about a total of 20 hours with the longest stretch to be about a max of 3 hours. Waking time at this point is pretty minimal.

  • Yes I would say about 19 hours, they are heavy sleepers and eaters right now

  • As much as they want. You don't need to do anything special. They pretty much eat, pee/poo, then fall asleep.
