Don't mess with your baby's normal sleep pattern. I can backfire on you. Work with it. FYI most babies tend to sleep better during the day with normal activity going around and not in a room with no noise. It is a built in safety mechanism. For example, you may find that you baby only sleeps a short time when at home, but then is out cold for hours on a car ride, or in a sling, or in the middle of crazy activity when you go out. They feel safe in the proximity to people. Swaddling can backfire too. One happens one day when you can't swaddle?
