Live Newborn Virtual Workshop - $49
Newborns need a lot of sleep, on average they need 12 hours overnight (broken with feeds) and between 5-6 hours of sleep a day.
When our newborns sleep their memory and immune system are strengthened, their bones and tissues are repaired, their appetite is regulated and they grow.
After 30 minutes of napping their short term memory is transferred to long-term memory, new brain synapses are formed, vision is sharpened, they process their emotions and their stress is reduced.
If your newborn is falling well short of this, chances are your baby is overtired.
