When Does Your Baby Sleep?

Your baby’s pattern of sleeping and eating may be more predictable with each passing week. If you want your baby’s routine to correspond better with the rest of the family’s, you can help him adjust without putting him on a rigid schedule.

In the morning, wake your baby and start his day when you are ready. In the evening, you may wish to rouse your baby just enough to feed him once more before you go to sleep yourself. During the day, wake him if he tends to nap for more than 3 hours. Keep it light during the day and dark at night.

While your baby’s cues for feeding and sleeping are still your best guide to meeting his needs, by 7 weeks of age he may begin to be guided by his environment.
