I got some really good advice the other day about my LO being so sleepy. She is now 1 week old and we had a weigh in at the peds office today. Her MD wanted her to gain at least 1.5oz in 3 days and she gained 2. So that's good. All my waking and stimulating her is going well. She's having lots of wet diapers and seedy yellow poops as she should. I'm just wondering if I should be concerned about her sleeping so much. Have I just forgotten how much NBs sleep? She has several very alert periods where she is wide awake and looking around for about an hour each time. The rest of the time she is sleeping or eating. She almost always passes out after feeding and if I'm wearing her in the sling, she stays asleep the whole time. Someone please reassure me that this is normal and she'll be more awake in time. She sleeps well at night too but does wake me every 3 hours to eat.
Thanks in advance!!
