What are your newborns sleep habits like? I just want to check in with other moms to see if my little guy is fairly normal.
My guy sleeps anywhere from 45 min - 2 hours at a time, eats every 2.5 - 3 hours, and at night will go right back to sleep after eating.
During the day, it takes more effort to get him down, so I'm using the Happiest Baby on the Block 5 S techniques. Sometimes it takes 15 minutes, other times it can take up to 45 to get him to sleep. Definitely a bit frustrating at times, especially when my 2.5 year old is simultaneously trying to get my attention while the baby is crying out of exhaustion.
Anyone else have trouble getting their newborn down for naps? Any suggestions?
