I recently installed black out blinds in our kids room. They are wonderful! I ordered the easyblackout kit from Easy Blinds Online. They were easy to install and easy to use (just measure carefully and leave a little extra material on each side).
Just a few months ago, I was complaining about the darkness, with the sun rising at 8:30am and setting at 3:30pm. Now the sun is up by 6am and sets after 8pm, and it is only March. By summer solstice, the sun will be up by 4am and not set until 10pm. Crazy!
Now, with the new shades, they are back to sleeping for 12 hours a night; though I think may help bedtimes if we move the entire bedtime routine into their darkened room to help their little bodies realize that it really is bedtime.
So, if your kiddos think they need to be up every time the sun is up, think about using some easy, velcro black out shades.
