Your newborn baby does not distinguish between day and night. She has to sleep and to eat at a certain time in order to properly develop, so that day and night it does not mean much. Generally, your baby will sleep about 16 to 18 hours from 24 hours. Newborn babies usually sleep two to four hours at a time, and so the whole day, and wake up hungry. Initially have to eat at a certain time, but gradually will more sleep at night and less during the day.

Begin to teach your baby the difference between night and day through different behavior at different times of the day. During her talk more while you feed. Be happy and relaxed. At night, be quiet and restrained. Let the light is dim. The baby will eventually get into the rhythm and start to sleep more at night.

Know that if you are breastfeeding, your hormones have reorganized your sleep pattern to match with your baby. These hormones can help to provide yourself enough sleep. Get some sleep during the day while your baby sleeps. Babies who are bottle-fed can sleep longer because formula stays longer in the stomach, but in general, their sleep pattern is almost the same as that of breastfed babies.

Tip: When you were a baby in the stomach, your walk is lulled to sleep. It is not surprising that newborns prefer to melt slightly. "Wrapping they are comfortable." In addition, many babies love music. But keep always in mind that the baby needs to be fed every two to three hours.
