mine's still sleeping like that (mostly-ish...except maybe an hour a day) and he's 11 days old. Smile

Sounds pretty normal to me. At a month Gillian still only has maybe 3ish hours of awake time that's not nursing or having a diaper changed.

yup. same here. they slowly come out of it though. kessler isn't on a real routine yet. he'll be 3 weeks sunday but he does have longer stretches of awake time now

Kai does that and is 2 wks today. Our only problem is that he hasnt gained back his birth weight. So I am having to wake him every 2 hours to feed him now. Just so yours is gaining then it should be fine.

Mine all normally woke up to eat every 3 hours. Every baby is different though, and they'll go through different patterns.

I'm with Jules. Harrison isn't gaining enough & he's subsequently tired at the boob. We wake both babes up between hours 2 & 3.

They're pretty sleepy unless I'm trying to do something.
