I would highly recommend doing something about the sunlight. My DD has two windows in her room with a crescent window over them. We got a "blackout" shade for the crescent window (they do a great job with keeping sunlight out). Then, we have wood blinds over the windows. AND, we have a curtain over those two windows. My MIL sewed black fabric on the back of the curtain - so the side facing the room matches the nursery bedding set but the side facing the street is black. This really keeps it dark in her room even in the middle of the day.

We did the same kind of curtain for DS's nursery over the blinds.

My kids (11 months & 32 months) do not wake up until 8:30am and 9-10am, respectively. They can take naps in the middle of the day. They are both great sleepers and have been from the very beginning. My kids have not had any sleep issues and I really believe that, in a great part, it is due to their dark bedrooms.

Now, when they are playing in their rooms, I just pull the curtain back and sometimes open the blinds. I love it!
