piperAccording to the National Sleep Foundation, Newborns sleep a total of 14 to 17 hours a day on an irregular schedule with periods of one to three hours spent awake.  When infants are put to bed drowsy but not asleep, they are more likely to become “self- soothers,” which enables them to fall asleep independently at bedtime and put themselves back to sleep during the night.  Sweet Dreams to all Tonight!  P.S.  This is my new grand daughter, Piper Rae.
