In brief: As much as they want

Babies are great at deciding how much exercise they need! keep them safe and let them roam. You will see cues when they are tired.

In brief: Physical activity

It depends on the age of your baby.

In brief: It varies by age

Babies pretty much 'know' how much exercise, sleep, & food they need.
Watch for their cues. Of course, they need lots of love, cuddling, positive words and interactions, ( & clean diapers.
