My 4 week old sleeps 16 hours a day so why do I barely sleep 4 hours a day???

July 26, 2011

My wife and I are baffled at this math problem. How can our baby sleep so much and we sleep so little? I mean our baby is barely ever awake. He wakes up, eats, poops, hangs out a bit and goes back to sleep. My wife and I are getting concerned that he sleeps too much. We try to keep him awake longer but he gets tired and starts kicking and flailing at us. We are pretty sure that at least half of his awake hours occur between midnight and 8AM. With all he sleeps, I am not sure how it always works out that we are walking zombies. They say to sleep when he sleeps but we haven’t figured out how to do that yet.
