Some babies just wake up a lot. Some do not. If they are sleeping a lot during the day but not at night, work on keeping them awake longer during the day. If it's a new change, it could be a growth spurt or teething.


Depending on babies age, this could be perfectly normal. When Charlie was born we fed him every 2 hours, which included overnights and if I'm not mistaken, that's the norm.

But if baby is a bit older, say a few months or so you may want to talk to your pediatrician. My first thought is reflux, even though Charlie didn't deal with that I know that a lot of moms that talk about sleep issues with baby at night when reflux is present.
