Yup The baby is very new to the world so his schedule could be mixed up.  She should sleep when he does and wait to see if it sorts itself out in a month.  To help him understand the "proper"times during day keep the house as bright and noisy as possible and at night as dark and quiet as possible.

This !! At night have her only use a nightlight or tv light . Feed him change him & put him back down . During the day , all windows open play ,cuddle , feed , bathe Ect . Until he switches she should sleep while he does .
