Expectations of Newborn Sleep
Newborn sleep is always a topic of interest amongst new parents. When do I put them to bed? How long should they stay awake for?
Although there are a few things you can do to help shape newborn sleep, your main focus will be to just go with the flow. When we say newborn, we are talking about babies in the 0-3 or 4-month stage. Sleep during this phase can be random and unpredictable as far as when they fall asleep as well as how long they sleep for. You may get a 2 hour siesta one day and 30-minute cat nap the next. There is no exact schedule and one day can be very different from the next.
