babies are like that up to 3 months... they can't differentiate between day and night... don't try to change baby's sleep pattern, it will settle on its own.. you can however start a routine, where you do the same things like massaging, bathing, singing to baby etc. at the same time every evening... also don't hold baby in arms all the time, otherwise baby will demand to be held all the time.. feed and lay baby down, but do give lots of touch, kisses and talk to baby...

all babies r different in their own way dear..mostly babies do awake at nights....you can gradually Develop his habit to sleep at night by putting off light n make him understand the difference bet day n night....All the best dear enjoy ☺
