By six weeks, your baby will be more alert - which means they are more interested in the world around them than going down for naps. Now is the time to instil some good sleep habits and have a good feeding routine.
Milk - Every three to four hours during the day. Be more flexible in the evenings and give them milk if they want it in the night. You do not need to wake your baby up for milk now.
Naps - Approximately every hour. Your baby will still be needing between 16-18 hours of sleep a day but they may start fighting sleep. Ideally get into the habit of putting them down awake.
