Helping your baby to sleep


Helping your baby to sleep

It’s normal for new babies to only sleep for two to three hours at a time through the night as well as during the day.

One reason is that newborn babies aren’t tuned into day and night yet.


Babies also grow quickly in the early months and they have very small stomachs. This means they need to feed little and often.


As your baby grows, they’ll gradually start to need fewer night feeds and will sleep for longer at night.
