How much sleep is good for child for 1st month after birth?

December 16, 2016 7:29pm CST
Children after birth sleep for most part of the day. Their sleep is dependent on whether their bellies are full. For the first month after they are fed with breast milk. At frequent intervals of 3 to 4 hours they require milk? How much sleep is required for the child for good growth, is it 15 hours or more per day?

@sathviksouvik I think we no need to think about it. They want to sleep, we let them sleep is ok. If they do not feel tired and want to wake up, they will wake up. New parents should be relax.

Thanks Ivan, that is good advice. If the baby sleeps and drinks milk at frequent intervals, there is no worry.

The information we actually have is very general, but babies have different behaviours. Usually, they sleep most part of the day, but it also depends of the way of life the mother had during the pregnancy.

That is dependent on the baby at that age. I was always glad when they slept through the night for the first time. Then they started staying awake a little longer.
