Figured so...and I'd be ok if he didn't cry the whole time

I bet dollars to donuts he wakes up at the same time he did when he was in your tummy.  He will figure it out over the next few weeks.  Grab a nap when he does when you can.

Talk to your pediatrician. Baby might be a little colicky if he is continuously fussy for that many hours. With my daughter holding her laying face down on my arm or thigh as I gently rubbed her back helped settle her gas bubbles in her belly. One of our NICU nurses said that hold works best. There are a ton a tricks out there to help. Good luck! As he gets older it will be easier to flip his sleep schedule.
