In brief: Flipped pattern

This is common to parents who believe they should let baby sleep during the day if they had a bad night.
Babies are pattern creatures and this continues until you stop it. Try waking every hour during the day for a minimum of five minutes and leaving alone at night, the pattern should reset within a week.
