My son was like this too. We were bathing him in the morning....someone told me to bath him at night and we did and it worked! We use that bedtime bath stuff in his water and have a wonderful fun bath time at 7:30pm then we get dried off in a warm fluffy towel and I rub him down with bedtime lotion and put him in his pjs and give him cereal and a bottle and he is out like a light. He is just about 7 months old now.....we changed his bath time when he was about 2 months old and it help alot.
I would play with Jayden as much as I could and tried to only let him nap 3 times throughout the day....once in the morning....once in the afternoon....and once after supper. The house work suffered but I would rather have toys on the floor and a few dishes in the sink so that I could get some sleep at night, LOL

YOU SHOULD TRY TO HAVE THE TV ON THE LIGHTS ANYTHING THAT MAKES NOISE DURING THE DAY IN YOUR REGULAR ROUTINE, THEN AT NIGHT MAKE SURE SHE IS IN COMPLETE DARKNESS, I GIVE MY SON A BATH IN THE EVENING AROUND THE SAME TIME AND I CUT OUT ALL THE LIGHTS AND PUT HIM IN HIS CRIB, HE USUALLY FALLS ASLEEP ON HIS OWN AND MY SON IS 8 WEEKS OLD. BUT GOOD LUCK IN WHATEVER YOU TRY.

I had that problem for the first 3 weeks after my son was born. I just started trying my best to keep him up as late and as long as possible through the day. I also started giving him a bath with the johnson's bedtime bath twice a week and using the bedtime lotion everynight before bedtime. He has been sleeping through the night for over a month now. Also, if you are still waking him up to eat in the middle of the night, that might be why he wont sleep too. My doctor told me to wake my son up to eat and i did that for the first 2 weeks but he got to the point where i would wake him up at 2am to eat and he would stay up the rest of the night. it was horrible.
hope that helps

My daughter had the same problem, had her days and nights mixed up. I turned on the tv or something loud in the home durng the day, and had lights on to make it really light in the home, and at night i had it very quiet, no tv on, nothing on, had it dark but not too dark had maybe a lamp on, feed your baby before its time for bed and put her in her crib or where ever she sleeps and she might cry for a bit but just let her cry, let her have a pacifire if you have one and she sould learn that night is dark and quiet and day is loud and bright, thats what i did and in a couple of weeks she was really good about sleeping threw the night

I have the same problem with my daughter who is 2 months, 9 days old. We live like bats in that she is awake from 12pm - 6am and gets super fussy between 4am - 5am. I am going back to work on 2/16 and hope a miracle happens before then.

you should try and give her a bath at the opposite time of the day. if you're doing it in the morning then do it at night and if you're doing it at night do it in the morning. i had to do that with my son. i was giving him his bath at night and he was staying awake all night, but once i switched to his baths in the morning he started sleeping all night:) good luck
