    Default 6 week old constantly sleeping

    Hello,
    First time Mum to a 6 week old girl. Just wondering how much sleep everyone’s bub is getting at this age?

    She will wake and feed for about 10min then fall asleep on my breast. I’ve tried all kinds of things to wake her and keep her stimulated, but she is just sleepy all the time. She has been a sleepy head since birth but I was expecting her to be more alert by now.

    She is putting on about 250-300g a week and lots of wet nappies, so is fine in that department. Maybe all the growing is still too exhausting for her?

    Thanks!

    Sounds pretty normal to me, at 6 weeks they just eat sleep and poo 😂👍

    Hi there,
    My little one is 5 weeks and is EXACTLY the same! Falls asleep on the boob most of the time. Think he’s just a very chilled out kid

    My DS is 7 weeks old and probably all up is only awake during the day for 2 hours or so total.

    they do that at that age. enjoy it while it lasts i say as long as you’re getting lots of wet/dirty nappies then i don’t see an issue
