Don't worry..every month kids cycle will change. For your kid night is the active hour. And day time is sleeping. Even for my kid as wel. Slowly things will settle. Just sleep when baby sleep...and getup when he gets up. Like that..you won't be sleep deprived. This is a difficult phase I know. Have patience. . . Eat good nutritious food. Tickle near baby's ear and feet...they usually will get up.

hi tanushree, it takes about 3 months for baby to get routine to night time sleep and day time wake... check pee count 6-7... try to wake at gap of 2 hours. if baby does not wake try to tickle under feet or on the ear....
