How long do your lo's sleep? I'm not complaining at all just concerned. My oldest slept a lot first couple days but Anthony is 9 days old and ill say he is up all together two hours in 24 hours. Is that normal?? I'm grateful for a great sleeper but he eats then goes right back to sleep. Kind of worries me.
daddies - mine is the same. #1 hardly slept at all, so this has been worrying me, but I think it's normal. Some days he'll be awake maybe 5 hours total the entire day, but other days it's more like 2. When we first brought him home, he was wide awake during the night, but I think we've got that figured out for the most part, and now he's just asleep all the time. The last couple of days he's had more awake time, and was awake for a couple hours already this morning. He tends to be awake in the evening until 9 or 9:30.... which is bugging me as I'd like him to have an earlier bedtime. But we're slowly making progress with it.
Mr F slept a lot the first week but since last week he is usually out for 2-3 hours then awake for 1-2 hours. He has definitely been spending more time alert this week, and I think he has hit the 3 week growth spurt because he is hungry and fussy the entire time he is awake! Kinda wishing for the first week sleepiness, lol.
Ok so a sleep question: Mr F has now been asleep for just over 3 hours. From 2:30pm until almost 6! I'm undecided on waking him up versus letting him sleep?
Weight gain and eating is not an issue, he is doing amazing...but I'm worried his long stretches will be during the day not at night! Then again...I've heard sleep begets sleep and that a well rested baby sleeps longer at night!?
Ugh decisions decisions! Any thoughts on waking up baby during the day?
