Some infants remain wide awake at night just when you want to get your share of sleep. You can start teaching your baby how to distinguish daytime from nighttime since the age of 2 weeks. When your baby's alert and awake during the day, interact with him/her as much as you can, keep the lights on, and don't worry about eliminating noises like the phone, music,etc. If your baby tends to fall asleep while feeding, wake him/her up. At night, don't play with him/her when he/she wakes up. Keep the lights low, avoid noises, and don't spend too much time talking to him/her. These practices will help your child learn that nighttime is for sleeping.
