How long should my newborn sleep?


During the first few weeks of your baby’s life, they will spend the majority of the time asleep. Typically sleeping an average of 16-18 hours a day, most newborns do not sleep for more than 2-3 hours at a time, especially if they are breastfeeding. If your baby is not gaining adequate amounts of weight, Dr. Kolsi may recommend waking them up more often to feed them to ensure they are getting the nutrition they need.
