I'm actually even going to go as far as to say not only newborns, but no CHILD has normal sleep patterns. They are all very individual, and there are so many factors, that trying to judge what is normal is impossible. Certainly, we can look at sleep patterns and say something is concerning, but there really is no *norm*.

There isn't one. They eat when they're hungry and sleep when they're tired.

Both my kids had a tendency to sleep during the day and stay awake at night. But there was no real pattern to their sleep.
