  • Newborns sleep a lot. Enjoy it while it last. As they get older they sleep less..

  • My daughter is 15 days old is up for about 1 1/2-2hrs (would probably only stay up an hour if we didn't try to keep her up a little longer), sleeps for 3-4hrs, and repeat until bedtime. At bedtime I don't try to keep her up at all obviously, so she nurses until she's full and then goes back to sleep. :]
