    Just wondering if anyone here uses blackout blinds/curtains for their LOs?

    Are they any good? I've noticed the lighter it gets on a morning, the earlier caitlyn is waking up, its driving me bonkers!

    Also, any idea where i can buy them from?

    Thanks xx

    We have white shades covered by dark navy blue curtains. The dark colored curtains really do the trick with eliminating the rest of the light. I was having that same problem before I bought them, I felt like I had my very own personal rooster.

    I am off to argos in the morning to buy a blackout bliind for Hannah's room as it seems so light in there when we put her down for the night despite there already being vertical blinds and lined curtains on the window. I think they have some deals on them at the moment.

    Dunhelm have some blackout curtains that are about £30 i think but really good as you can put them straight up and sont have to sew them to your own curtains

    Sure do! I had to get blackouts cause there is a street light right outside her room and her windows face to the east, so soon as the suns up its in her room.

    We do - they're brilliant! Got some blackout curtain liners from Paul SImon that just hook on to your regular curtains so no sewing!! They never have them on display though - you have to ask for them. Think they cost about £16

    Yep, most of the windows in the house have dark blinds and Lola even has dark pink curtains over them so there is really no chance of light getting in her room before I want it to :lol:
    If you close the blinds and pull the curtains at noon in her room it will look like midnight. Honestly!
