Re: New Mommy Needs Advice ASAP!
First, congratulations to both you and your daughter:smileyhappy:

It sounds to me like baby might need to be reminded that night time is for sleeping and day time is for eating.

To do this there are a few little tricks you can try. First, don't let baby sleep for more than three hours at a time during the day. When you feed him during the day, make sure he is awake and actively eating, not falling asleep at the breast or bottle.

Try to feed baby often during the day. If he wakes up during the night, try to comfort him without food and see if he will go back to sleep. If he doesn't go back to sleep, feed him but don't let him fall asleep while eating. Put him back in crib while he is still a little bit awake.

This can be tricky but if you stick with it, it will work.

Try small things to stimulate baby during the day. Try and get feeding and bed time on a schedule. Having meals and bedtime the same time every day helps baby learn what is expected of him and helps you know what baby expects of you and when:smileyhappy:

Hope that helps a little.
