In brief: Schedule

You can set the babys schedule so that it revoves aroud your activities and not the other way around.
Set the times for eating, sleeping and playtime. It may take a few days before the baby adjusts.

In brief: Start with her sched

First, buy her a tiny wristwatch.
...Just kidding. Start with your baby's own natural rhythm by keeping track of when she usually feeds. Then enforce that schedule by sticking to those times. You can try to nudge feedings a little earlier or later, but it's usually best to start with the baby's own schedule and work from there.
