Nursery Blackout Shades Mean Extra Sleep for Mom

Abigail Sawyer | 15 Oct 2014 | Cellular Shades

Moms are sleep deprived enough with 4 am feedings interrupting their nights. The last thing they need is the sun cutting nap time short or waking up babies WAY too early.

New mom Shannon, who writes at Sweet Stellas, said enough is enough and went searching for some blackout shades for the nursery.

Shannon Says:

“Thankfully, with the Blackout Cellular Shades in Bark, those five more minutes of peace and quiet are becoming a reality.”

Because these shades were going in a nursery, choosing something safer for kids was important to Shannon. She added on a cordless lift which makes them easy to operate and eliminates hazardous cords.

Shannon Says:

“Those sweet five more minutes are sometimes all you need in the middle of the night to recharge your batteries. For me, shopping the Safer for Kids Collection at provided us not only those five extra minutes of sleep, peace and quiet, but they also provided us peace of mind as our little guy grows up and starts to be on the move.”

One reason Shannon chose the Blackout Cellular Shades was for the fun printed texture. The organic woven look of the Linen Bark fabric coordinates perfectly with the wood mobile above the crib.
