10 month old DD has her gotten her days and nights mixed up

My 10 month old DD has her gotten her days and nights mixed up. Last week she got sick with a bad cold, and she still has it, so when she falls asleep I let her rest and sleep as long as she wants.  Usually when she naps, she would only sleep for a half hour to an hour, taking two naps a day.  But since she's not been feeling well she's been sleeping about 3-5 hours during the day.  The longer her naps are during the day, the later she wants to say up at night.  The DH, myself, and even my  MIL has been having a hard time getting to sleep or to stay a sleep at night lately.  Usually she would go to bed around 8-8:30 pm, but now she's been going to bed between 9:30-10:30 pm and will be up and down until around 3-4 am then wants to be up and stay up.  She will be wide awake, wanting to eat, be changed, and then wants to play with Mommy and Daddy.  The DH and I have no problem feeding her if she's hungry or just wants a drink or needs to be changed, but the DH has to get up at because he goes to school early in the morning then goes right to work right after he's done at school and gets home between 4:30- 6pm. Now everytime anyone trys to lay her back down, she will start to fussy, cry, or scream for someone to come back to get her.  She has been waking everyone up in the house, including the dog.  Does anyone have idea on what we can do or try?

It's hard when they've been sick. 1 thing I read years ago is during the day make sure you have the sunlight coming in or the lights on, at night make things dark so she can see a difference, hopefully that will help her get back on track. When I used to feed my dd at night, I never turned on the lights, she had a night light so that was just enough light so I could change and feed her.
