Eat. Poop. Sleep. Repeat. That’s the life of a newborn – and it’s not very predictable in the beginning. As your baby grows, you will start to recognize patterns in eating and sleeping that will help you to feel a little more in control of your days (and nights!). Some parents want to be a little more structured and scheduled – a more predictable schedule may make you less stressed. Knowing what’s normal will give you a starting point to make decisions for your baby.
