Is There A Way To Reverse My Pattern Of Sleeping All Day And Being Up All Night
All the way around: Intuitively, individuals trying to invert their sleep cycle try going to bed earlier to see if they'll fall asleep. Unfortunately, this works infrequently.

Sleep pattern's a mess. Sometimes I also sleep during the day, and at night I sleep between 3-11 hours. How many HOURS "should" I sleep per night? Thx
About 8: Definitely don't spend more than eight hours in the bed at night and if you cannot sleep leave the bedroom. Don't sleep during the day since you have insomnia at night. It sounds like your circaidian rhythm needs to be reorganized so keep a set wake time i.e. 7AM and try to sleep at 11PM but if you are not sleepy then just go to bed when you are sleepy. Eventually you will build a a sleep drive. ...Read more

Sleep is off and I'm sleeping throughout the day and night. Up at odd times. How can I change my sleeping pattern?
Circadian rhythms: The body has it's own internal clock - which for the most part matches the light/dark cycle of this planet.

Sounds like you need someone to help you review 'what' you're doing wrong to set you back on track. I believe you can! ...Read more
My baby is 8mnths, suffering discontinus sleep pattern, 2-3hrs max by night, light sleep during the day.Please advice?
Poor sleep pattern: Your child may be teething and the pain is waking him up. When going to bed let him suck on a cold rag or other cold substance. When he wakes in the middle of the night, go to him, see if he is ok but do not pick him up. Over a few nights his sleep pattern should improve. As a last resort you can give him tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen at bed time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
