hi chantelle
don't worry. she is just one month old. babies have such erratic sleep and wake timings for the next six months or so. sometimes they fall into a routine sooner but it may not be match our routines. my daughter used to wake up at 3 am and keep cooing, playing, feeding and sleeping hourly till 7 am. it is better if you don't wake up such young babies from their sleep and that you let them sleep and wake up when they want. their brain cell connections and growth keeps happening when they sleep. their body clocks are not yet set to the day-wake and night-sleep rhythms. i know it is a tough deal to look forward to for quite some time. but chin up. it is a short phase. meanwhile, see if you can get someone to take care of the baby while you recharge yourself from time to time the whole day. all the best!
