Emmy has always been an ok sleeper and I have been a very lucky Mummy. She slept through for the 1st time at 10 weeks old – please don’t hate me I know this is unusual and if i’m lucky enough to have another I doubt very much it will happen again.
She has however always been an early riser, usually awake around 6am – 6.30am. Recently this has become earlier still which is never a good thing. I think it is to do with the fact she has a street light directly outside her bedroom window making her room rather light all the time. I have tried thick curtains, double lined curtains and even a black out blind but even that didn’t work as her window is 6ft wide by 4ft deep and the blind still let light into the sides and over the top – so effectively was a complete waste of money.
I saw these new blinds advertised and just had to try them for myself – well a 5.30am start will do that to anyone!! I tried them out on the same day they arrived and was completely amazed – Emmy slept in till 8.20am Woo Hoo!!
So what’s different about these blinds and how do they work?
Lights Out Blinds fit most windows. They are 1m x 1.2m in size and come in packs of two. For larger windows more blinds can be used, and for smaller windows the blind will sit around the frame. No size adjustment is necessary.
|A small, neat storage bag means they’re easy to put away when not in use and to pop into your suitcase when going travelling. Simply wipe with a damp sponge if they need cleaning.
To put them up: unfold the blind, stick the sucker to the window and pull the cord to tighten. For deeper recesses, easy-to-use extension rods are provided.
To take them down, unstick the sucker, squeeze the sides together as if folding into a tunnel and the blind will then collapse.
This is Emmy’s bedroom at 8.30am!! Very dark still
