Newborn won't sleep at night

Newborns not sleeping much at night is fairly common. Most newborns will sleep but not for extended periods of time. They may be waking up because they are hungry. If your child isn't sleeping at all at night it could be because they have their days and nights confused, which can happen with newborns. To avoid this, create a morning time and a bedtime routine. Get up for the day in the mornings and spend the day in brightly lit rooms. At night keep things calm and dark so they learn the difference. Newborns need lots of sleep 16-18hours a day, so also make sure your newborn is getting good naps in during the day, often when infants and newborns become over tired, they become fussy and fight sleep even more.
