What is the normal day sleeping patterns for 7-8 week old baby

What is the normal sleeping patterns for baby 7-8 weeks during the day. My baby at 7 weeks seems to be sleeping more and more in the day and waking every 4 hours at night. He still wakes 4 hourly 4 feeds.

Answer: Hi, You would expect to be feeding 4 hourly and a good routine is feed/play/sleep and feeding 2,6,10,2,6,10 F/P/S allows you to feed when baby wakes (if due) and then play and watch for tired signs and then when tired signs are shown you settle baby awake into the knowing he has been fed. You can get an overview of our settling program from the Your Baby`s Sleep section of the Huggies site or for more detail, and a visual demonstration, It`s Time To Sleep DVD&BOOK. Cheers, Maree
