    my baby is 12 days old with the same problem, MW says sometimes bub will demand more feeds overnight, it is important to expose them to sunlight during the day, to regulate melatonin level in their body, which apparently regulates circadian rhythm, by the 3rd month, the level will become regular, before then, sleep deprivation will be bad. try to get some sleep during the day when the bub sleeps, also, have the baby a bath each night before bed and a good feed right before bed help too. good luck!

    Our baby swapped day and night and dh back at work and 4 yr making me cakes in the middle of the lounge 40 eggs over a few days that was foul to clean up. I was a zombie,but a friend rang and said to me right no matter what you get this baby up at 7am feed etc and place back to bed at 8am, then up again to feed at 10am back to bed at 11am, then up at 1pm and back to bed at 2pm and so on 3 hourly, the first night was a bit difficult but 2nd night of this routine we had a different baby. Day sleeps all curtains open, very light and noisy. Some babies like a routine its an option, not too everyones taste. Literally if we had continued this nightmare I probably would have had a breakdown.

    Sounds like hes got his days and nights mixed up, try getting him outside for a little sunshine everyday, preferably a little walk, but if its hot just a trip to the letter box, make sure the house is nice and bright during the day. Good luck.
