Would anyone kindly have any ideas on how to teach my week old baby difference in day and night as she sleeps all day and not at night?
7 weeks is still really young, the only thing I can recommend is that you keep all lights low/off at night, even when she wakes at night, keep the lighting as low as possible. Calm and quiet is the way to go.
Does she have a bath in the evening at all? We used to bath our daughter at 5pm to signal the start of wind down time and getting ready for bed.
You can also do some baby massage, that’s a great way to relax your baby. Channel Mum recently did a video on Baby massage that you might enjoy.
Have you tried white noise? That may help her settle at night?
Make sure at bedtime she is in a quiet environment, no tv or phones as that blue light they emit will stop any production of the sleep hormone.
Babies dont actually produce melatonin until 4 months, which is why newborns sleeping patterns are all over the place, but it’s good to get started with some helpful behaviours that create a loose routine now.
In the daytime, make sure she naps in a light room, go about your usual activities, don’t try to be quiet for the baby.
She will soon learn the difference, it just takes time. Sounds like you’re doing a fab job though xx
