my 3week old (repost from 0-3months)

should my 3 week old (actual age) 38weeks gestational) be having more awake time during the day? she wakes up (or i wake her) to eat and she is awake for about 30 minutes to eat and falls back asleep. should i be keeping her awake more during the day?

  • If she was still inside your tummy (where she should be at 38 weeks) she would be blissfully sleeping away most of the day....

    As far as I know, that sounds normal.  Once my daughter hit around 40 weeks gestational we started noticing longer awake times.  Have you asked your pedi?

  • My daughter sleeps more during the day.  She is also quieter during the day.  I normally check her Pampers Swaddlers Newborn diapers every 2 to 3 hours, and I change her diaper.  That wakes her up, and she will then make sounds or cry for her bottle at that point. 

    I am going to our pediatrician this Friday too for my daughter's 1 month appointment.  We are hoping that she is doing good on gaining weight.
