6 week old, too much sleep?

My 6 week old sleeps a lot! I feel I shouldn't be complaining but also interested to see if I should be keeping her awake to play for longer in the day time. She'll wake to be fed every 3-5 hours and tends to go straight back to sleep after each feed. That means she's really only awake for 30mins to an hour at a time. Usually around 8-9am then 12-1pm, 4-5pm. Bedtime is 7pm when we start bath, feed and bed (approx 7.30pm) then she'll wake at 11pm ish, 2/3am and maybe 5am. What are others experiencing?

Mine was similar at that age. I remember worrying about it, and asked the HV. I was told that as long as they are alert when they are awake, then there is no reason to worry. Just enjoy your easy baby!
