Q.

sleeping to much?

My Twins are 11 weeks, how much should they sleep during the day? They were full term babies (38 weeks) and are healthy and a healthy weight. They feed every 4 hours (day 5:30 - 7:00, 11:00 15:00 and bed and bath at 19:00) and have one night feed (2:00). But they seem to only be awake +/- 1 hour (including feeding time) during the day and then they want so sleep again (for 2 -3 hours) then they wake for a feed, play a little and the it' s of to sleep again. Is this ok for their age?
