I don't know if it's 'normal' or not. I do remember one day when my oldest was a newborn though. In an 8 hour period during the day she had only dozed once for about 20 minutes.

My only tip is to just try nursing her to sleep... again. ;) I can't really remember much else about this stage as my youngest is a preschooler now and my memory ability is HORRID.
