Sounds like she might have days n nights mixed up... most newborns do. DS was like this for about a month it was tiring and crazy but it does pass. What helped us was a bath, cuddles, bottle bedtime routine, making sure that his naps during the day were with the curtains open n some noise in the back ground ( not a lot ofcourse, we want them to be able to sleep a bit!) Make sure night time has very minimal lighting, very quiet. Basically make sure there is big differences between day naps and night sleep. I hope this helps! I know how hard it is but bubba will eventually learn day from night. Just think back to when they were in the womb, it was pretty much always dark!

Agree with Purple Lily - sounds like bub still has night & day mixed up. From memory it too DD a month about to get it sorted. We kept her in a light room (window blinds open etc) for her day naps. I put her in a rocker in the lounge most days, so there was noise as well. I also popped her on her tummy after each day feed for a few mins for gentle play. Maybe wake her for feeds more during the day?
When she woke at night kept things quiet & semi dark. I had a light on outside her room & a small nightlight so I could see to feed her. Straight back into bed unless she needed a nappy change at night.
Don't worry - bub will figure out day & night It can be rough until they do but it does happen!! Just make sure you take a nap during the day if you need it.
