Yes, this is totally normal and a lot of babys switch their nights and days. make sure at night you dont turn on lights or tv or anything that will stimulate them and during the day try to keep noises in the background. DO not try to force an infant awake. Their bodies know they need sleep. When my daughter was around 2 mths and she was sleepy during the day, I would try to entertain her for en extra 5-10 min then put her to sleep. eventually we would sleep more at night then during the day...although we are at 6 mths and we still get up at least once a night around 1 or 2 when we go to bed at 9 and are up for the day at 6. The US is one of the only countries that feels like babies should sleep through the night so early on. Your LO will adjust soon enough. Month 3 is usually when sleeping habits get better.
