Sleeping in a tent with a baby

One thing we hadn't thought about too much was how much harder it might be for a 6 month old child to sleep when their is no darkness. After a few sleepless nights we realised that the only way to solve this problem was to make a tent within a tent:

We used a brilliant insulated groundsheet which blocked out all the light, two ikea bag clips, and a couple of lightweight coats at either end. It kept him warm and dark and in thre morning when he finally woke up it was hilarious watching him escape from his dark prison.
