Getting a decent night’s sleep after becoming a parent is a huge challenge. It’s the beginning of a new era of sleep deprivation with the most difficult task being getting your baby to sleep through the night.
Newborns are simply not pre-programmed to sleep through the night. But as their brains start to mature, they start developing a more structured sleep schedule. After birth, some parents observe that their baby is very sleepy, barely opening their eyes for more than a few minutes at a time. However, this phase doesn’t last, and for the next 3 months, your sleep schedule will be in direct conflict with that of your newborn.
Newborns sleep in short bursts lasting anything from 30 minutes to 4 hours. They like to feed often and that’s fundamentally why they can’t sleep for hours or follow a normal day / night schedule. It’ll take time for your baby’s circadian rhythm to kick in, but until it does, this confusion can wreak havoc on your sleep. As month 4 approaches, sleep will eventually become your baby’s preference, even though they’re still learning ‘how’ to stay asleep!
