yes, very normal. I remember trying to get pics done when mine was about 2 weeks old or so, and she was always sleeping.
My first child was bright-eyed and everyone was surprised because she rarely slept for long, and was always looking people right in the eyes. We have beautiful pictures in the hospital and one week later of her bright eyes and even some smiles! But my second child....he was a sleepy head. I never took drugs with either ofthem, so I know it wasn't any drugs. He slept about 22 hours of the day and only woke up to eat and then would fall asleep eating. My last daughter who is now 15 months old...she was about in between slept on and off, maybe 15-18 hours or so. Not too much, not too little. Had several hour naps at intervals. Every baby is different. Always ask doctor if you are worried though. Sometimes it's an indicator! Mommies know best!
Normal. I swear we hardly saw my daughters eyes the first few weeks. The only time her eyes fully opened was in the hospital. lol
yeah they are like little puppies and keep their eyes closed at first. lights are too bright for them.
