How much should my newborn be napping?
The amount a newborn naps is guided by the time that a newborn is able to stay asleep in general. Newborns sleep in chunks of time between 2 and 5 hours, with great variability. Every newborn is different! During the course of the day, your newborn will sleep between 2 and 4 times of nap. Your newborn will sleep between 12 and 18 hours, across a 24-hour day.About Dr. Robyn Stremler
