To my knowledge, the size of the baby at birth does not necessarily effect length of sleep time.

In brief: Yes
Once they get to 30 or so years of age and get on the outside of a six-pack of beer and some barbecue, yes, big babies sleep pretty good.
Not so sure about the little big babies, though.

There doesn't seem to be any link between baby size and sleep.
Sleep is more of a developmental issue not really related to physical size.

Another "old wives tale" is that baby will sleep all night when they reach ten pounds, or that big babies sleep better. Most babies can sleep 6 hours straight by 3 months, although there are those who sleep 8-10 hours very early, and those who don't sleep all night until much, much later.
