Getting a baby to sleep can be a mission at the best of times; getting them to stay asleep so they get the right amount of rest is a whole new challenge. Unfortunately, this article is not full of the answers on how to get your baby to sleep and stay asleep. At Image Blinds our business is blinds, not babies.
This article is about how having our high quality Australian-made blinds installed in your baby’s room can help with the routine of sleeping and nap times. If you have a baby on the way or a baby in your life, you will benefit greatly from adding our blinds to the nursery; here’s why.
If you have ever tried to lie down during the day for a nap you will know how too much light in the room can prevent this. A darkened or dimmer room will help babies get to sleep better during the day or even in the evenings when it is still quite light outside.
Closing blinds during the day and evening creates a calmer, darker environment. When they are closed at night it also means the morning sunlight won’t wake your baby too early. Block out blinds are ideal for the purpose of preventing too much light into the room.
Too much noise is often the cause of babies waking too soon or having trouble getting to sleep. While you can’t expect the other members of the household or the outside world to creep quietly around at this time you can try to block some of the noise out.
If you have a cool or air-conditioned home, closing the window in the room and closing the blinds is a great way to reduce outside noise. Wooden blinds such as Western Red Cedar are great as wood is a natural noise insulator. Block out blinds are also good as they tend to be thicker.
Too much cold and heat can prevent babies from feeling comfortable and sleeping soundly. Air conditioning in the room will obviously help this but with the help of good quality blinds it will be far more efficient.
If you don’t have air conditioning in the room then blinds will still serve very well to control the temperature. Closing them at the right time of day can either help keep heat out or trap warmth in.
