  • Look at it this way:
    When you were pregnant you rocked her to sleep all day, and she was awake at night.
    Now that you're not pregnant you're probably holding her much of the day, and trying to get her to sleep at night when you're not moving.
    She's got her days and nights backwards- most babies do.
    Wait it out.
    By 3 months she will establish day and night. Just keep lights low at night, keep visiting to a minimum, remind her that we sleep at night, and eventually this will change.
    This is NORMAL!

  • When you're with her at night keep the lights off or low, and don't turn on the tv. Keep it quiet and talk to her quietly. And during the day make sure she is napping in a room that is light and keep sounds going on in the house, even if it's just you cleaning or watching tv. If her nap goes too long try going into her room, unwrap her, and talk to her and stroke her face. The light thing is key. Sometimes I wonder why my baby is taking a long nap and when I go back to her room I realize that her room has gotten really dark. I'll turn on the hall light and she'll wake up shortly after that. Light is the key way to distinguish day and night for babies.

  • i would try to switch her nights and days by making it darker during the day and then brighter at night and see if that helps
