Tell your doctor if your baby has a clouded- looking lens, white color in the pupil, redness that doesn't go away, or if he rubs his eyes a lot. Also, be aware of these common baby eye conditions.
Sleep must naturally overtake your newborn baby. Constant background noise helps babies stay asleep. Swaddling prevents infants from being woken by their startle reflex.
Newborns sleep a lot. About 16 to 20 hours a day. But they don't really follow a schedule. Infants don't know the difference between day and night. So she may be up all night and sleep all day.
