My 5 month old daughter has never been a good sleeper but lately it's been dreadful. She sleeps well, just not at the times I need her to. She usually goes to sleep at 2 o'clock and wakes up at about 12 in the afternoon. I don't know what to do. Should I keep her awake during the day? Is it bad for her not to sleep? I'm a new mom, and I've been getting all kinds of "advice" from relatives and friends. None of them have told me something positive. Most of them advice against keeping her up and some say she'll out grow it. But I can't do it anymore, I'm amassing a full set of luggage under my eyes. I work part-time and though it's not many hours it's still affecting me. My husband works full time and is no help at all, (not that I blame him.) Sometimes I want to break down crying... What can I do?Answer Question
