Now I'm expecting no. 2, I've been looking through some notes I made when dd was born. She would sleep from mid-night until about 11am (waking every 1.5-2 hours for feeding) - fairly normal I think - but she NEVER slept during the day AT ALL.
Is that unusual? All my friends newborns seem to be permanently asleep.
How very organised to have notes. I just have a very faulty memory. As far as I can remember ds never slept at all between 3pm and midnight. He had colic and screamed his head off for six weeks. He always slept if he was in his sling or moving in the car but woke the minuite we stopped.
And yes all my friends babies slept constantly too.
Nobody believes me, but my first son very very rarely slept as a tiny baby. Maybe if you went out in the buggy but would wake on stopping. I was totally shocked as had idea babies slept all day. DS2 was better but DD1 is very similar to DS1 - very little sleep during day (er, or night actually until very recently).
Its all a big lie to keep the human race going..........
