Most babies are sleepy for the first few days after birth. Babies do need to wake up and stay awake for feedings. Babies are easiest to wake up when they are not in a deep sleep. Signs that your baby is waking up include eyes opening and closing or moving arms and legs, or mouth. For more information on waking a sleepy baby, access the following link:
