Newborn Baby Sleep Timeline

While your baby will have her own sleep rhythm, here's what you can generally expect.


During the first two weeks of life and for some time after that, your baby's tummy will dictate her sleep routine. Breast-fed babies will need to eat every two to three hours; formula-fed babies every three to four. Infants are able to sleep for longer periods between feedings when they reach about 12 pounds.
