Nighttime and the newborn

Just wondering how your new(or not so new)born is sleeping at night. Does he/she wake and eat then go back to sleep? Nights and days mixed up?

Carter def has his days and nights mixed up ! The only bad part about this is that he strains soo much so it takes him longer to sleep

Sarah will NOT sleep on her back and so in the hospital she slept terribly. I would prop her slightly on an angle with a receiving blanket but when the night nurse came in to do vitals she would shake her head at me and lay Sarah down flat... When we came home I tried her in a swaddling blanket but she is so tiny that I wasn't comfortable with how much it bunched around her head. I attempted on her side but I think the crib is too overwhleming for her... So we are co-sleeping right now. Working good as she wakes up, latches on and I go back to sleep but I want her in her own bed so as soon as she fits right in the swaddling blanket we are attempting it.

We are co-sleeping so we do a lot of side-lying nursing so we are doing pretty great. He sleeps pretty well which makes it easier too.
