Hello Ummu, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Infants aged 0-3 months are advised to get sleep at least 14-17 hours a day. At this age the baby still needs to suckle every 2-3 hours so that the possibility of a night's sleep is not too long (will still wake up to suckle or need to be awakened to suckle). Babies at the age of 1 month will usually sleep about 8-14 hours at night and sleep about 15 minutes - 4 hours during the day, between the time of sleep the baby can only last up to about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The following are some things you can do to help your baby sleep better:
Try putting the baby to sleep before the baby is really sleepy to the point of fussing. Avoid rocking the baby until the baby sleeps soundly. Cucumber until the baby is sleepy, then try to sleep on the baby bed. If the baby cries, come back to sleep, then sleep again on the crib. Repeat continuously until the baby can fall asleep alone in his bed. Avoid breastfeeding the baby until the baby falls asleep. It is also important to make sure the baby gets enough nutrition. Adjust the darkness of the baby's bedroom and room temperature so that it is not too hot or too cold, avoid using clothes that are too thick and layered for the baby. Swaddling a baby can help babies sleep better at this age. Install constant noise (white noise) like the sound of rain, the sound of running water, the sound of heartbeats when the baby is sleeping. Conditions that are too calm can actually make babies sleep more uneasy. You also need to know that every baby is different. There are babies who need less sleep, there are also those who need more sleep. But the baby should still meet at least 14 hours of sleep every day. If there really is something that you are worried about, consult your pediatrician to get a more complete evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
