How long and how often is LO awake during the day?

Samantha is hardly ever awake. She will be awake for maybe 15-30 minutes after eating then she falls back asleep, but thats only if she doesnt fall back asleep immediately. And maybe once a day she will be awake for an hour or so.
I know she could be going through a growth spurt or it could be because of her acid reflux.
But I just worry something is wrong because she used to be awake more when she was younger.

Maggie is awake usually for about two hours right around now (10-12) and then spends the rest of her day sleeping. She'll be alert and awake for much smaller increments throughout the rest of the day, usually 5-10 minutes

Caleb is typically awake for an hour or so in the morning, and then pretty much sleeps until evening when he's up and cranky for a few hours before bed. He'll wake up for a little while after eating, but no more than a half hour. The first week I swear he slept 23.5 hours a day, though. He's gradually been becoming more and more alert. I'm glad (even though it means more crying time), because I like playing with him

It sounds like Samantha has hit a growth spurt. I wouldn't be concerned. I'd just try to get caught up on sleep, which I know you desperately need.

Sophia is just starting to get more alert. Lately she's been awake about 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening and then little bits here and there in between. Then of course there's the times where she'll be wide awake around 2 in the morning. That one I'm not loving so much...

Rilynn will be awake anywhere from 5 mins to a couple a hours, throughout the day.
And then same thing may or may not happen throughout the night lol

Last night she was up for 3 hours. But thankfully slept this morning, so I got an extra couple hours of sleep.

Oh yeah... When we went to bed at 2 last night, she was wide awake and not ready to go to bed anytime soon.

When I first brought Aubree home, she slept aaalllll day only waking for a diaper change and to eat, and she would be awake for bath time. At night, same thing. That lasted a couple of weeks. Then, she would wake up in the morning to eat, and stay awake for 2-3 hours. Then sleep most of the day, waking to eat and be changed, awake for bath time, bottle, and awake for another 2-3 hours before passing out only to wake for feeding and changing. For the last few days tho, she's been waking up in the morning and not really sleeping all day. She will fall asleep, but wake up about 15 minutes later (or less), several times thru out the day, sleeping in total about 2 hours. Then after bath, she's been stayying up til about 11 pm. Yesterday she woke me up at 10 am, I brought her downstairs and put her in her bouncer so I could pee, and when I came back she was sleeping. From there she slept most of the day. Today she went back to not sleeping. She did pass out (after I had to carry her around doing things around the house lol,) and she's been asleep in her swing for about 2 hours.

Ben varies a lot, too. He is a pretty alert baby, though, he can be up for hours at a time. When he starts to get fussy I know he is tired so I try to nurse him to sleep or bounce him or something. But some days he will go to sleep effortlessly and sleep for hours and hours, like he did last night. Then like tonight he was up for hours and took me forever to get him to sleep. And Im sure he'll wake up soon, too, lol.

Ive been blessed with them alert, hongry babehs.

James is the same as Callie and Ben, some days he's up and alert throughout most of the day and other days he sleeps most of the day.

Winnie is up for several hours a day. Probably 6 hours total! It's so weird for me. I don't know what to do haha I feel like I need to keep her entertained. I've started reading her lots of stories and engaging her with some toys but then there is still a lot of awake time where she just sits and stares because I'm out of ideas. Oh well haha
