    Most get it between 2-4 days, it can take up to a week in rare instances. Definitely don't supplement while waiting for it to come in, that can cause supply issues. Colostrum is all they need those first few days!

    Bleeding is different for every person and pregnancy. Also if you over do it after baby comes and also play one factor into it. Anywhere from a week to 6 weeks and some rare cases longer. 

    Yes baby's sleep a lot when they are first born.

    All those questions vary for each person. For me, milk came in around 24/36 hours after birth. Bleeding: do you mean partum or breasts? For newborn sleep patterns, most newborns sleep a lot during the day.

    Milk comes in between 3-7 days.
    Bleeding lasts 4-8 weeks.
    Newborns sleep about 16 hours a day.

    If you mean postpartum bleeding, it depends on your labor. Mine lasted between 1 and 8 weeks (one week for an easy labor, 8 weeks for an induced labor). If your nipples are bleeding and it is your first ever breast feeding experience, only a day or two. Be sure to use ointment after every feeding. If it lasts longer then that the babys latch is wrong and you should talk to a consultant.

    Ok, yes, that depends on your labor. Most women bleed for four weeks.
