  • Um.....there isn't one?

    Baby will figure it out - but at two weeks.....just relax. The days and nights will get sorted out eventually.

  • 2 week olds aren't supposed to be up all day.

  • an old wives tale i was told was to flip the baby in your lap (very gently) head over feet. haha it didnt work for my son though! baby is just used to the dark from being in your belly so thats when he wakes up. he'll get the hang of it soon!

  • Just be patient. But for now just sleep when the baby sleeps even if it is all day.
