1-3 months

Newborns sleep for about 16 hours out of every 24, split into periods of 2-4 hours and divided equally between day and night.

Most can distinguish night from day by 10 weeks. By the end of the third month, the frequency of daytime naps drops from about four to three and most babies will start to sleep for a longer stretch of around 6 hours a night.
