My ittle girl is about 3 weeks old and doesnt hardly sleep at night. I try my best to make her comfy at night so she will sleep but it doesnt work. She seeps all day and is awake at night. Any ideas on how to switch her from night to day?

It's normal at this age. Try to keep it brighter during the day and dark at night. Have you considered co sleeping to help her?

Completely normal. This is how it is when you're a mom. Don't expect to have a good nights sleep until your child moves out lol.

It's normal. 3 weeks is still really young! Try your best to keep her up and stimulated later in the evening, like after 5 so come 9 or so or whenever you go to bed, she's ready to sleep.

Today she also didnt want me puttin her down. I had to hold her all day in the recliner. Could it be because she might be sick or what? Sorry im a new mom and im worried.

Probably not. Babies want to be held and nurtured. Do you have a sling or anything so you can wear her?

No. Just my arms. I didnt know they made a sling till just recently. I also didnt know if it was normal for her to need held all day unless she was sick.

shes fine and its completely normal :) she just has her nights and days mixed up! 

they'll happen often and they get over it naturally. when it does happen you can help by setting a distinct difference in the room from night and day. during the day stay lively, keep lights on, music on, toys going and more, but when night falls, let her see you putting them away, shutting off the lights, setting calm music, and switching the mood. 

shes young, but they understand!

babies are very needy and clingy when it comes to love/comfort/closeness.

She wants to be held and that yound they love to be snuggles all the time!!

try swaddling her at night, hold her til she sleeps!

Look at it this way... She was just "held" by you for 9 months. All she heard was the sound if your heartbeat and blood rushing through your veins and she felt warm 24/7 inside you. Then she came into this world and has no idea what is going on. It's natural for her to want to be as close to you as she can get. :) get a sling or wrap and hold her often. It won't be long before she doesn't want to be held anymore:
