So I keep reading that babies aged under 5 months "should" sleep 16 - 18 hours each day and it's starting to stress me out! My 8 week old, who I thought was a pretty good sleeper, probably does get this much sleep some days but other days she barely sleeps during the daytime at all. On the bad days the whole "should" statement really plays on my mind and I end up spending the whole day trying to convince Miss Moo to sleep rather than just enjoying spending time with her and then we're both miserable. So my question is at this age how often did your baby really get 16 - 18 hours sleep?
Sorry if this doesn't make sense. We had a pretty rough night.
