2 Weeks Old: Sleeps mostly during the day

Hello: I'm new to this group but my 2 week old son sleeps mostly in the afternoon and not so good at night. I've read that it's actually worse to try and keep him awake during the day! Any advice to get him to sleep more at night?

Welcome to motherhood, must be a new mom! It's normal for a newborn to sleep during the day. Usually the first month is the toughest until he gets his days and nights together. It gets easier as time goes on and you start to notice that he's sleeping longer at night and just naps through out the day. My advice would be to sleep when he's asleep so that you're getting rest.
