Is it possible for a baby to sleep too much?

DD is 6 days old and seems to want to sleep all the time. She will sleep for 4 hours at a time. I have to wake her for feedings and she isn't all that interested at times. Is this normal?

So normal!!!! That's a newborn's job. And many of them sleep endlessly in the beginning. She may continue to do this for a month or 2. Everytime I worried about it, I was always told to enjoy it LOL

Congrats on your new baby.

Newborns do nothing but sleep! Just think of all that they've recently been through! The birth process is a lot of work!

It is perfectly normal! Chat Icon
