Window Treatments to Help You Sleep

Light and darkness are powerful cues that tell your body when it is time to rest or start a new day. For parents and babies especially, its important to regulate the amount of light that comes into the room to get the best quality sleep.

Light and Melatonin

Our ability to sleep is tied to light exposure and our melatonin levels – a hormone that helps regulate our sleep-wake cycle. According to the National Sleep Foundation:

“Exposure to light stimulates a nerve pathway from the retina in the eye to an area in the brain called the hypothalamus. There, a special center called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) initiates signals to other parts of the brain that control hormones, body temperature and other functions that play a role in making us feel sleepy or wide awake.”

Studies show that “exposure to room light during usual hours of sleep suppresses melatonin levels by more than 50%.” Without Blackout Curtains or Room Darkening Window Treatments, our bodies will not be able to properly regulate our melatonin levels and get the sleep we need.

Blackout Curtains, Blinds, or Drapes

True “Blackout Curtains” do not exist because there will always be that “halo” of light between the window frame and the covering. Even the best Blackout Curtains, Blinds, or Drapes cannot completely “blackout” a room, but 3 Day Blinds Room Darkening Window Treatments come close. 3 Day Blinds Room Darkening Window Treatments can help mothers everywhere put their infants to sleep and get a much needed and deserved night’s rest.
