No sleep...

Why is it that I have babies that don't need to sleep? Isn't a normal newborn supposed to sleep something like 20 hours a day? This is my third baby now who JUST WON'T SLEEP!!! My first didn't sleep through the night till she was almost a year old. Neither of the older kids have ever taken naps past a year or so old. They sleep about 8 hours at night, then run full steam all day long. That's how much the average adult needs, not a small kid!

Jack will sleep about 1.5-2 hours at night before waking up to eat. During the day he sleeps in little 5-10 minute spurts, then is awake again. If I'm holding him, he'll sleep much longer, but if I put him down I get just a few minutes before he's awake and crying again. Agh!!!

Before we ever even left the hospital when he was first born, the nurse brought him to me and said, "Your baby is the only one in the nursery who won't sleep." Uhhh, yeah, that's because I gave birth to him.
