  • Sure she is new to this world, she will figure it all out. I remember wondering if I would ever sleep again. She is sure pretty!

  • she's sleeping normal. she's still at the age where she needs to eat every 2 hours. my 3 month old still won't sleep consistently. just enjoy holding her until she calms down. you might check with your dr about colic. it takes awhile for them to figure things out. just have patience with her and don't expect a schedule for a while
