Q:

everyone says newborn sleeps 16 to 20 hrs daily. but my baby is not sleeping at night and drinking milk for every hlfan hr to one hr. is it normal. I'm worried, plz suggest me

This is very normal for such a small baby. He doesnt know day and night right now. Slowly as the day activities increase baby will sleep more at night. Just ensure you give feed abd burp. Anything to add mom star Sheeba Rizvi, Sonika Singh

ruqaiya ur advise will be valuable.

A baby this young must not even sleep for 12-16 hours at a stretch as they have to be fed every two hours. Woken and fed if sleeping. So your baby is behaving very normally. You rest while he is sleeping. Happy motherhood! :)

dear Mounika , the babies who are sleeping 16 to 20 hrs do exist . But the truth is this sleep wont last long . Wat ur baby is doing is far better for you
Let me explain . young and weak babies cant stay awake longer so they sleep 16 hrs but these babies dont get the nutrition as they dont wake up easily for feeds. after few weeks these babies go on hungry state where they wont sleep at all as they are very hungry .
Your baby on the other hand is  growing with the.constant feds and will sleep better as he gains weight .so you wont struggle with the hungry state .
so its normal that babies fed at night when young actually I encourage this for better growth .

Hi Monika your doubts must be clear now with all the valuable answers of momstars...your baby is so young so just chill n enjoy its very normal baby doesn't sleep so long...usually they have to be waken up every 2 hours for feeding. Baby learn gradually. Make sure your baby is getting enough milk then he may sleep for 2-3 hours. Thanks Priya Sood for the tag
