Babies spend more time asleep

The first step to get your baby to sleep is by knowing how much sleep the baby needs. But its not a measure of how your good parenting skills are. Taking time to know the habits and how to communicate with them helps the baby to become a good sleeper. You can help your baby by keeping her/him on routine, encouraging and engaging in activities like singing while giving them time to settle down.
Babies probably spend more time asleep because they need it especially newborns 2-3 months since their body is still on a rapid growth. Depending on their age a normal baby spends more time asleep, 10-12 hours at night and about 3 hours during the day which might stretch for few hours as the baby matures. The brain power of a baby increases depending on how long they spend time asleep which improves their attention span allowing them to be mentally alert.
