Sleep needs vary: Infants often go thru variations in there sleep patterns due to growth, illness or developmental changes. Add a desire not to miss any interactions with mom and this period is often frustrating. Young infants are not aware of sleep, and don't know that it can help them feel better when tired. They drift in and out as conditions permit. This will improve in time.
