In brief: Sleep

They will sleep most of the time and will have their own schedule for now.

In brief: Typical schedule

Rested babies feed well so start within a few minutes.
After half an hour or so, start your diaper changes or play period. Stimulate your baby with rocking or other play to take advantage of the wakeful period and continue until the baby tires. As baby begins to fuss from fatigue, put your baby to crib. Baby can drift off to sleep and complete the pattern until the next feeding is due.
