My new born sleeps all day and not at night. How do I change her sleep pattern?
When my baby is sleeping during the day for four to six hour periods. I can't get her to wake for anything. I have taken off her clothes, washed her face, moved her around, everything. But then she is awake all night. Even when I feed her at night she doens't go to sleep. If there was some way to get her to change her sleep pattern to sleep at night how she sleeps during the day I would be over the moon.
i have learned a few things about sleep patterns. at first with my son, he slept during the day and was up all night. i did everything i could to try and reverse it, but what i found out was that he was doing what was best for him and wheni tried to wake him or keep him up it just made it worse. eventually he began to switch his days and nights naturally. and i also found that the better he naps during the day, the better he would sleep at night. depriving him of sleep during the day only made him so much worse at night. by the time he was 2 1/2 months old he was pretty much corrected and sleeping long patches through the night and now at 4 months he almost always sleeps through the night. i know it's hard, but when they are young you have to let them set the schedule, it's what they need. they will eventually correct it, and remember, sleep truely creates more sleep, so let him sleep during the day, it will work out eventually. best of luck, and know that you are not alone!
