Posted in Newborns, Sleep

Why is my two week old always wide awake at night? I was told that she’s supposed to be sleeping most of the time. Though this is the case during the day, she wakes up for a feeding at around 9pm and stay up sometimes till 12am. That’s almost 3 hours! She’s not crying or anything just wide awake! Can anyone relate to this??? Is this normal???

    It's normal for newborns to get their days and nights mixed up. Happened with my daughter. We slowly started trying to keep her awake more during the day by keeping the room bright and loud (vacuuming helped) so that she could adjust to learning that night time was sleeping time and not the day time.
