Baby sleep: there a lot of issues that can prohibit an infant from sleeping, from a multitude of GI issues to bad feeding schedules. Try "The Newborn Sleep Book" for some advice.

1 month old: A one month old needs to feed every 3-4 hrs. It is not uncommon for this age group to be up every 2-3 hrs. It is also not uncommon for babies the first few weeks to sleep better during the day than the night. Be patient, things will improve over time

Immature: You must allow t your infant to establish his own sleep rhythm. Your expectations may not coincide with his needs. You should sleep when your infant sleeps and not try to imprint your ideals on him. Relax a little.
