Babies: 0 - 3 Months

How long does baby sleep during the day?

My lil guy sleeps for three hours everyday is that okay he is 1 month old.  He has been waking up more  at night .  How can I keep him up?  When he is up he smiles and plays but shortly he gets sleepy.   Also after he eats he always falls asleep too.              is he sleeping too much?

  • I was wondering this also. My dd is also 1 month old and usually sleeps in 3 hour increments during the day. I have found the few times she stayed awake during the day, she slept much better at night. But....what do you do to keep a 1 month old awake? There is only so much you can do to entertain them..
  • I struggle with this too. We try to keep Savannah up between 7 and 9:30 (when we usually go to sleep or at least get in bed). That seems to help, but she is usually still up every 2 hours to nurse at night. We have had a few nights now where she is asleep 3-4 hour spurts.

  • at that age...and even now. ds would just sleep and eat maaaaaaybe be up for an hour max. Now he is going almost 2 hrs awake.

    not much you can do. They really just eat, sleep, poop, repeat.

  • Same thing here. It seems like all DS does is sleep all day. He does seem to sleep better (longer) during the day, but sometimes I am holding him, so I am sure that is the reason. Today it seems like all he did was sleep. I didn't even get to really play with him at all.

    I FF him and he only sleeps 2 hrs at a time at night (he is up every 3 takes just about an hour to feed, change him, and get him back to sleep). Once in a while he will sleep one three hour stretch...that usually happens when we first put him to bed.
