One of the leading experts in the neonatal sleep, explains that the idea that a baby should sleep through the night is completely wrong at the physiological level.
The sleep pattern of a newborn is totally different from the one of an adult and when in the books it says “sleeping through the night”, for a newborn means doing 5 hours of sleep in a row, since.
I highly suggest to listen the words of Doctor McKenna.
