Most of the time with a new baby (esp more than 1) there's going to be some kind of arguing you guys have. Having a new baby is stressful but you guys have to work together and take each other's feelings into consideration.
As far as sleeping schedule you have to be strict and consistent with a bedtime . Set a time and get your lo in bed by that time each night . Let your child know around the time that it's time to settle down.. no matter how much they cry or fuss have to be consistent

Same here... my daughter wouldnt go to sleep till 6 in the morning,i would be the one staying up. And my husband would be all asleep, even when he had off. I kept telling him stuff about it. Didnt really change. .. just try to tire out your 3year old during the day, then take him/her a bath in the night.

I always hate my husband the first 6 months of my kids' lives. Then, when things start going back to normal, we reconnect and things are great. Just remember that marriage had its ups and downs. You're not going to be blissed out in love all the time. That would be exhausting

I would say try to get a sitter or gma to take the baby while he isn't working so u can have a date night or time off...its important to be on the same page emotionally and to be happy and show love the little ones pick up on your vibes...so try to talk openly and calmly and spend some time reconnecting and work on love...love and family and commitments take work and its easy with a baby to focus all the attention on the child and forget to give each other time and love too...as for the sleeping schedule...my 5 year old is the same way and I can't break her cuz I'm a vampire too and she won't sleep without me..if I fake it she will go to bed and get back up shortly after I do..like she knows its crazy lol but the hubs doesn't care and we aren't starting her in school until kindergarten because I'm a stay home Muma and teach her but good luck and let me know if something works for the sleeping schedule ...lol! but yeah work on the love...it will help!
