Track your baby's sleep patterns & get a daily routine that works for you
Most newborns sleep 14 out of 24 hours.
This amount of sleep is usually in 1-4 hour blocks with equal hours during the day and at night.
This means parents can be up round the clock for the entire first year with a baby (that's exhausting)!
As baby gets older they can sleep longer at night but this, and sleeping through the whole night doesn't just automatically happen.
It's easier to transition a baby to sleep longer at night if you know their feeding & sleep patterns (and other important things like how much they're drinking, crying & how many wet/dirty diapers).
Parents often keep track of these types of things for a baby's doctor anyways.
