    is it normal for one week olds to sleep all the time?
    I just picked them up and all they do is sleep... is it normal???
    I don't have a problem with it, i just want to know if they're okay

    I don't know if it's normal to sleep "all" the time but they do sleep alot. Mine would have bursts of activity and then fall face down asleep... I thought they were dead [​IMG] think of regular babies... however, I don't think they should sleep ALL the time.
