RE: How dark do you keep your baby's room during the daytime?
You may find that your baby becomes less of a deep sleeper when she gets a bit older. Many babies lose that ability to sleep through bedlam after a few months.
That being said, I don't do anything special to keep it dark in Sarah's room. We have wood blinds, but I have many times forgotten to close them. I haven't found that the degree of ambient light affects her ability to sleep. But other stimulation definitely keeps her from sleeping now that she is older.
