      Hi @Rini –
      Thank you for writing to us, and congrats on your new arrival! Not all babies are active and playful after a feed – some have their playtime once they wake up, which is okay! Some babies do sleep a lot at this age, but you’ll want some alert playtime with your little guy too of course! If you’re at all concerned that your baby is not well, however, please go check with the pediatrician. Your doctor will be able to help rule out any illnesses, and help be sure that he is growing and developing well! Good luck Rini!

    My two month (8 week old) is only taking short 25 minute naps, but is doing well at night. Any thoughts on this?

      Hi Jessie,
      Thanks for visiting! Generally, if your baby is happy and isn’t acting overtired, and she’s sleeping roughly 15 hours a day, then she is doing well. Many little ones have very short naps until closer to 4-6 months old, so what you’re describing can be normal. I hope this helps!

    So my daughter is two months old and we have gotten into a pretty good routine the evenings are when she gets fussy so I try to give her feedings by then it seems like every two hours she wants me to feed her and I didn’t know if that would not make her feed as as good when 8:30 comes around since that’s her big feeding before bed. We put her down and she’s asleep by 9:30-10:00 on average we’re getting 5-6 hours a stretch of sleep until she wakes up for a feeding. How should I do the feedings once is gets closer to 8:30? Also she does like to nap in the evenings but how close can she nap until her big feeding at 8:30?

      Hi @Kristie –
      Thank you for writing to us about your 2 month old! It’s definitely common for your bay to be fussy in the evening, and for her to want to feed more often! Cluster feeding may even help her sleep better, since she’ll be eating more overall!

    Love this post! How would you again these schedules if you’re doing mostly breastfeeding but supplementing 2-3 meals with formula? Thanks!

      Hi Christie,
      Thank you for following The Baby Sleep Site – I’m so glad to hear this post was helpful for you! Since we mostly work with sleep, we are not really qualified to answer specific feeding questions, especially since your answer would depend on how much you’re producing, etc., and we want to make sure your little one is getting enough 🙂 You can check in with your pediatrician or lactation consultant, or call a breastfeeding helpline in your area for more support. KellyMom has a great page with helpline resources you can check out here: https://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/breastfeeding-helplines/
      I hope that helps! Good luck 🙂
