this is totally common, for a newborn to have their days and nights mixed up

make night DARK and day BRIGHT.. basically, decide when you want bedtime to kind of be... ie.. 7pm - 7am.. and once 7pm roll around, draw the shades, dim the lights down, talk quiet

perhaps try to slowly keep them awake longer during the day.. when Monroe was TINY, we would at least keep him awake 30 minutes post feeding.. this really seemed to help!
