Are you wondering how much your baby should be sleeping?

Have a look at this baby sleep schedule.

It is based on real life experiences as well as statistical averages.

And remember, not many babies are average babies! If your baby is happy and content, mainly sleeps at night and is awake during the day AND doesn't wake up extremely early in the morning, you are likely fine!

If something is not right according to you, it can be a good idea to check averages to get a clue about how you might adjust your baby's schedule.

A funny thing to keep in mind when your baby is a few months old is that somewhere at the age of around 3 to 5 months, many babies start with a 2-3-4 awake schedule. That is, in the morning the baby is awake for 2 hours before the first nap, then 3 hours around lunch and then finally 4 hours before bedtime.

So, if you're looking for some kind of routine to establish with your baby, this can be a good start. But again, all babies are different, so whatever you do, don't focus too much on the clock as opposed to your baby's (and your) well-being.

Good luck!
