Baby blackout blinds

Advice on what to look for when choosing blackout blinds for your baby's nursery plus the opportunity to purchase a range of blackout blinds including roller and roman blinds.
Blackout blinds are designed to block out the light at your child's window. They come as either a patterned blind with a blackout surface on the back or as curtain linings that you can attach to the curtains you have purchased or hang separately.

It can be useful to purchase blackouts for your child's nursery, particularly for early summer mornings as it may help them sleep for longer.

We have velcro blackout blinds at home, and for travelling have found 'go anywhere' blackout blinds from easyblinds which use suction cups to attach - no more towels and blankets over curtain rails to block out the light! Children sleep beautifully wherever we go now.

When our daughter was born we bought a fabulous blackout Roman Blind from It was made for inside the recess so that when it is down the light does not get into the babies room. It is so effective that we have purchased them for all our bedrooms. You can choose from hundreds of fabrics and have matching curtains and accessories made check it out and see for yourself.

I got curtains and blinds both fully lined from the - they are brilliant, I found that the ones with suckers just kept falling off and the combo of blinds and curtains has worked really well for us - he sleeps all the way through adn we have a really bright street light just outside our house

the first thing i bought when officially baby shopping for my little boy were blackout curtains kink of unique ones (ive ot seen them again) as they blackout lining was attached to the curtains already - no messing about for me - firstly they were on sale (ok 2 pairs one for babys room one for mine - they were cheap!) it was the best money i could have spent - if i was up with baby all night - i could still catch some shut eye when my mum or nan popped round for an hour. I prefer the curtains to the blinds as they dont have as much light showing around them and as they are so dense - they keep the cold out in winter too :)

in short - buy em love em and do all the bedrooms in them - i did

Easyblinds are great at home, but for travelling I have always used good old silver foil and blu tack - works a treat, easy to get hold of and light to pack. The strong turkey type of foil is best as it can be a bit fragile, and pull the blu tack in to long strings to stick the foil all of the way around the window - absolutely superb!!

I have a 2 year old who has always been an early morning waker (6-6.30 am every day even when she goes to bed late) despite having a blackout roller blind. These still let in light around the edges. So I recently purchased an easyblind which gives complete blackout since they velcro directly onto your window frame and hey presto she sleeps way past dawn now - in fact til 8 am, every morning since she's had this. She may stir a little at her old waking time, but then goes back can't off to sleep. Its fab!. I have just ordered a baa baa sheep travel blackout blind to take on holiday which works on a similar principal.
