As a newborn, fresh out of the oven, your baby will need the most sleep during this time. You will be grateful for the amount of things you can get done during the day while your baby sleeps. During this time, your newborn will need about 16 hours
of sleep; 8 hours during the day, and 8 hours during the night.
During the day, you will find that your baby won’t sleep for 8 hours straight – and most likely during the night, too. Generally, during the day, your newborn will take about five naps totaling 8 hours. Those moments your baby is awake will mean time for feeding and diaper change.
