    Default Days/Nights mixed up

    My two week old seems to be wide awake at night & really fussy. I think he is overtired and has his days/nights mixed up. How do you go about fixing that? or is it too early to worry about?

    right now its perfectly natural. just make them know the difference: night time = dark quiet and sleep day = bright active and awake. untill their body starts producing that M word for sun, its going to be like this. it usually fixes itself by 1 month, 2 at the latest

    I think all babies are born thinking we are still cavemen. Cave men babies nursed all night attached to momma's breast b/c during the day family groups collected berries, roots and seeds while travelling from depleted zones to fertile zones.
