Black Out Blinds = Better Sleep

Most pediatricians will say that the darker the room the better baby will sleep.  We've found this to be very very true for both Henry and other visiting babies who have slept in Henry's room.  Henry's room is as dark as a cave, and visiting babies always sleep beautifully in Henry's room.  Parents will repeatedly say, "I can't believe he/she is still sleeping." 

I'm convinced it's a combination of the fact that first, his room only has 1 shaft window, and secondly that shaft window is dressed with honeycomb or cellular blinds.  These babies block out tons of light, and they also insulate the windows.  I was thrilled to see that the bedroom windows in our new house are already fitted with cellular blinds.  Yahoo!!
