Early on, it’s not unusual for babies to be awake as much at night as they are during the day; they often don’t start to sleep in longer spurts through the night until one month or so. So until then, time and patience! Afterwards, if the baby is having trouble with night-day reversal, it can help to have more “active” sleep during the day – not worrying if there’s background noise, lights on, etc. At night, the goal should be for very calming interactions – dark room, minimal noise, low-volume speech. Most babies are getting two-thirds of their daily sleep at night by three months.
