you could ideally do with somewhere other than her moses basket for night sleep - they cant distinguish day from night and if ur putting her to nap and then again to sleep in the same place she will begin to get confused between nap and sleep times - which when her routine kicks in may cause you more awkwardness.
try having the moses basket for downstairs only and then a cot or crib for upstairs.xx

i had this problem with nicole when she was a baby, used to have to crawl out of the bedroom so she didnt cry. She used to sleep in our bed too, which she still does occasionally now!! and shes 4 1/2!!!!! my hv said to try and put her upstairs in her basket as much as possible through the day!!

have you tried swaddling her at night?? i.e wrapping her up tight in a blanket and making sure her arms are crossed over her body and under the blanket?(hope that makes sense) It makes them feel cosy and secure and worked wonders with Joseph. I only EVER did it at bed time (part of the routine) and I found it did encourage him to sleep longer. I would also keep the moses basket for bed time and let her sleep in her pram through the day so she learns to associate the moses basket with bed and BIG sleeps. Or you have the basket for day time and the cot for night (but they look tiny in the cot at such a young age)

I'm not going pretend to know the answer but I personally followed the Gina Ford contented baby book. It doens't work for everyone but It did for me and both my son's were sleeping the entire night by 8 weeks old. They were breast fed and very content. It's not for everyone though. Have a go.
