"Crystal" from Mississippi

It is not normal for a newborn infant to sleep through the entire night. This is a trauma based induced sleep. It is also unwise to allow the child to sleep through the night after he has just been cut. Hemorrhaging is a concern, and she will be unable to monitor it over the course of the entire night if they are both asleep. It only takes 2 ounces of blood loss (absorbed quickly into a Pamper) for an infant to go into shock and bleed to death.
