My daughter is 8 days old and she sleeps all the time. Literally she sleeps about 20-22 hours a day. I have to wake her for feedings and each feeding session is hard work because I have to fight to keep her awake. Does anyone else have a baby like this? I have her 2 week appt on Monday, so I will be checking with her doctor to make sure everything is Ok, but in the meantime Im a bit worried. Im not sure if Im worrying needlessly because my oldest daugher was awake and active from the start. She has never slept much, and generally her sleep as required a lot of work to make it happen- she is 18 months old and rarely sleeps through the night.
Am I worrying needlessly?
