My son will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. We have struggled with sleeping the past week or so. We bath him at 7 pm, dress him for bed, feed him and put him down to sleep. He usually will sleep for 1 hour starting at 8 pm. By 9 pm, he’s wide awake and fussing. Last time for example, he was up almost all night. The only time he was asleep was when I finally put him on my chest for 1 hr and 40 minutes. Today he’s making it up by sleeping. How do I undo this new cycle and keep him up and alert during the day and sleep at night?
We live in NYC and the weather does not permit outdoor walks Or much light exposure. The living room is bright and I keep him here during the day. Bedtime is in the bedroom with dimmed lights and white noise.
If he stays up during he night, should I keep him up during the day?
