DS2 is 8 days old and i'd forgotten how much newborns sleep. He sleeps pretty much all day, waking only to feed and then falls back to sleep on the boob. I also feel that it's often me waking him or he gets waken by DS1 or he stirs while getting transferred to pushchair or something to go out.

I find myself feeling he's sleeping too much - some nights he's gone 4/5 hrs without waking. DS1 woke every 1.5/2hrs for food til he was about 14mo!!! Am just not used to this!

How much does your newborn sleep and does this sound normal..?? He feeds well and has plenty or wet/soiled nappies and when he is awake he's alert. He just never seems to be awake....

Hi my dd is 7 days old and she sleeps all the time as well. She feeds lots but is basically just asleep. She wakes up for nappy changes but then just wants to feed and sleep.
I'm sure it is just a phase but hopefully it is a good long phase. grin

Mine both slept constantly for the first couple of weeks - DS1 I woke every 2 hours in the day and 4 hours at night, DS2 woke himself every 2 hours. I don't think DS2 spent any time with his eyes open until he was nearly a month old though.
