  • Newborn and sleep in the same sentence? Heh heh heh...

    Once he was past the jaundice, mine just WOULDN"T sleep. He was CONSTANTLY EATING! Maybe an hour of sleep here, two hours there. On a lucky day, a whole three hours.

  • It seemed like all mine did was sleep! She was always a great sleeper.
    It depends on the baby.

  • lots and lots the first 2 months. i work from home, and prepare so much for the birth of a new baby, but even with twins the first two months was a lot of sleeping. it doesn't really seem like it if you are a first time mama though!
