And she asks, Should I let my baby nap in a dark room, even though he still has his nights and days mixed up? Yes, you should definitely let your baby nap in a dark room. Just think about it. How hard is it for you to fall asleep in a bright room, it’s the same for your baby. So don’t try and force him to fall asleep in a bright room in hopes of helping them differentiate differentiate night from day like, that’s not the way to do that. I know some babies will fall asleep in the daylight, and they’re just real sleepy. So they’ll fall asleep and do it. But if your baby’s having a hard time settling, definitely don’t try and force them to fall asleep in the light, it’s it’s not the way to go. Let your baby take naps in a dark room. And then while they’re awake, you can open the curtains, turn the lights on. And if you can get outside or sit in the sunlight through a window between 8am and 12pm. And that’s really going to help them start sleeping better overnight. There’s just there’s science to prove it the sunlight between those hours of 8am and 12pm.
