It’s so nice to see some sun and to feel spring in the air, which also means that we’re considering getting a blackout blind sorted for our daughter’s bedroom.
We swapped bedrooms at the end of last Summer and got away with putting a duvet up at her window until the clocks went back (because that’s how we roll!). We think it’s really important for her to get a good night’s sleep when the sun comes up earlier. And a happy, well-rested girl makes for happy, well-rested parents after all!
We’ve always been very fortunate because in the main our 7 year old has always loved her sleep.
Whether this has been due to the bedtime routine of bath, story, bed from an early age, we will never know for sure.
But what we do know is that before we moved house, she had a blackout blind and it does make a difference.
A blackout blind is good because…
- Not only is this good for encouraging weekend and school holiday lie-ins, it also helps to ensure that our daughter is getting the rest she needs as she grows physically and emotionally.
- They benefit children and adults too because I used to work shifts (the full 24 hours of earlies, lates and nights) and had a blackout blind, which was a sanity-saver at times, I can tell you!
- It’s surprising how much light is blocked out by the blind. And so with Spring being on the horizon, a blackout blind will be most welcome 🙂
