My son is 10 weeks old, and it has only been in the past 2 weeks that he has gotten into a more "nocturnal" sleeping pattern! It will pass.

Could have written that myself my lo is exactly the same ATM... She sleeps most of the day and then some nights she will be awake/feeding for hours. She does feed at least every 2 hours in the day and I try to do done sort of activities with her when she wakes like chat and smile with her and put her on the baby mat/baby swing but she still seems to be asleep alot of the day. We don't have ANY sort of routines either (I know it's still early days) but is a bit of a nightmare as I have an elder daughter to sort for school and lo changes from one day to the next, never know if I'm gonna ba able to get sorted for school run or not be able to out her down she wants to be attached to my boob all morn :/ so hard. Am hoping she will start to get her day and night the right way round soon as am so exhausted! Although I do try and sleep some of the day... Defo suggest trying to do that. Good luck x

Yes! I'm in the same boat with the same age spread. My son is 7 and we have definitely been late for school a few mornings!

Ha, yeh we rarely make it on time ATM! Some mornings lo will go back to sleep after a feed which is USUALLY around 6-6.30 (but may be 5 or 7, lol, pretty unpredictable) which means I can get up and get things sorted and get ready... But some mornings she will be awake from 6-7 and i have no chance es if she is awake she usually wants to be on the boob and if not she is screaming and I won't leave her to cry... So pretty tricky :/ x

It will get easier! You have to be patient. It is up to you to teach her day from night but be aware that it's not something that will come straight away. What you can try to do is wake her for feeds during the day and try to keep her awake a little longer. But do it gradually; if she has a feed, try to interact with her for another five minutes before she has a nap. Then make it ten, fifteen and so on, but only do what she can handle so go at the pace she allows.
And make daytime bright and noisy, and night-time must be dark. She will get the hang of it eventually; in the meantime, try to nap when she does during the day so you don't feel like death!
