I'm a new mom and wondering why do babies sleep so much?

They’re getting use to the transition into the world. Slowly they’ll begin to sleep less but as they do you really have to be active in helping them get a comfortable schedule down, not only for them but for you. Before you know it you’re down to one 2 hour nap a day and 7-8 hours overnight. I highly recommend taking as many naps with your little one as you can now!

Be glad my daughter just had a baby and she never sleeps

Because they’ve been in the womb for 9 months and they love sleep​:heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

My son slept through the night from night one til he hit huge growth spurt at 3. Then like 6 months he was up a lot. But he never napped either lol

That have tons of growing to do
