The first question that comes to mind when reading “blackout curtain for nursery” is,

why does the nursery room need a blackout curtain?

Before we know the answer, let us understand the basics of blackout curtains.

Blackout curtains are made of a material that does not allow light to pass through. Such a curtain prevents light from entering the room and makes the room comfortable and suitable for sleeping.

Stopping light from entering the room makes the room dark enough even in the afternoon.
This will help your baby get a good night’s sleep even at noontime.

Why blackout curtains are essential for the nursery room?

  • Some blackout curtain comes with extra features like soundproofing and thermal insulation
  • These features will prevent noise coming from outside and will help in keeping the room temperature in balance

Before we look at the advantages and disadvantages of blackout curtains,

We need to look at the effects of light and sound on young children.

Effect of light and noise on children/toddler sleep

According to the expert Raisingchildren article;

Light is the most important external factor that affects sleep. We have all experienced that it is easier to sleep when it is dark, the link between light and sleep goes much deeper.

light plays a central role in regulating circadian rhythm and the production of melatonin.

Circadian rhythm: The body’s internal clock that signals when to be rest and when to be alert

Melatonin: An essential sleep-promoting hormone

Effect of light on toddler sleep:

As per the research of sleep foundation ;

Darker rooms will help keep the baby calm and stable. Even the darkest room tells your child that now is the time to sleep.

Once your baby is in bed, they will sleep better if the amount of light in the room stays the same while they sleep.

Effect of noise on toddler sleep:

some toddlers/kids can fall asleep and stay asleep with a little bit of background noise. Other toddlers/Kids prefer a calm environment. And they often wake up easily to sudden noise.

Keeping noise levels consistent makes it easier for your baby to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Tips for managing light and noise

Sudden noise disturbs the sleep of young children. Keep windows and doors closed to prevent this. Hang a heavyweight or blackout curtain over the window.

If your child stays away from morning traffic noise and morning light, they will be able to sleep longer.

So keep your child away from morning light and noise.

Cover the window of the room completely with a good blackout curtain.

Blackout curtains will prevent outside light from entering the room and reduce outside noise.

Try dimming the lights as you get your baby or young child ready for bed. In the daytime, closing blinds or curtains will help your child sleep.

What parents can do

This does not mean that parents should turn off the nightlights and keep children in complete darkness before going to bed.
But at a time when half the kids use screen media before bed, research serves as a reminder for all parents to turn off gadgets and keep their children to a minimum to encourage good sleep habits.
Notably, a full brightness tablet measures 100 lux, 1 foot away from the eyes in a dark room.

  • Don’t make a big difference in daily bedtime, Maintain a consistent bedtime
  • Try to Establish a quiet and consistent pre-bedtime routine for your toddler/child
  • Turn off screen and media devices at least one hour before bedtime
  • Lowering the light level in the house at least one hour before bedtime
  • Ensure that the sleeping environment is at a comfortable temperature without light or noise disturbances
  • Make sure children get enough natural light during the day
