    It says different for babies with reflux. Different how? My 5 weeks old has reflux and day naps are a struggle (sometimes she only sleeps for 15 min and wants to breastfeed again).

    Hello,
    In the article on this site, titled “Exclusive Wake Time Formula” it states from 1 to 2 months a baby should be awake for a maximum of 40 to 60 minutes. However, on the schedule, it has newborns the same age being awake for almost double that time. Which is correct? I am very confused by all the different information on wake times.

      Hi @Michelle – Thanks for writing, and so sorry that the info on our site confused you! The exclusive wake time formula is one of our guest posts, and it is very helpful, but does not always fit perfectly for our unique little babies – especially newborns who change so quickly! Not often do we see a 1 month old staying awake for the same amount of time as a 2+ month old! Feel free to use the article as a guide, and/or use our recommended schedules on this page too, and find what works best for you! This is a great link for help with newborn schedules written by Nicole:

      Good luck Michelle and feel free to contact us if you’d like more help!
