I keep reading that babies at this age should be getting 14-16 hours of sleep a day.
my DS won't go down until 9:30-10, sleeps 5 hours, feeds and fussed for an hour, sleeps 3-4 more hours and then he's up. he will only sleep longer if I bring him into bed to sleep on my chest, but I really don't want to start that bad habit (as much as I love it).
during the day he'll be awake for 2 hours or just shy of and then will naps. anywhere from 30 min to 1.5 hours.
we never hit the 14 hour recommendation. He's a crying fussy baby and I'm afraid it's mostly due to lack of sleep but he refuses to be put down during the day, so unless in the pram, any napping is done on me. I can't be pinned to the couch all day, it's just not sustainable.
does anyone have tips? is 14-16 hours really what most babies are getting at 12 weeks? I'm a first time mom, so I'm really unsure.
