After trying a blanket over the normal shit blackout blind for a few nighs in my DD's room, we have been getting an extra hour or so in bed! 6 or 6.30 instead of 5 or 5.30am grin

Been reading about the Travel blackout blinds and think this would be fab but notice it says up to 200cm.

My DD's window is 203cm wide... thats the whole frame.

Anyone with the blind... Does it attach to the frame or window itself? It should just about fit if it can attach to the window.

It attaches with suckers to the window so should be fine. It's been an absolute godsend for us

Suckers onto the window glass. It's fab, but I have been told by frineds that they can't get hold of them - there seems to have been a bit of a run on them since we were evangalising about them on here a few weeks ago.

BikeRunSki- Thats where I heard about them and what gave the idea to try with the blanket first to see if that helped at all.

I do hope I can get some!

Just checked the website and it says they are in stock. Ive not heard of these before- sounds great. Ive got the curtain type but they keep coming off to check measurements of DS's bedroom window now LOL

We have baa baa blackout blinds for holidays, they attach directly to the glass.

When combined with curtains they are great but they IMO aren't made of a blackout material. I did contact baa baa about them and they said they were "travel" blinds, they are good but not like covering your window with actual blackout material.

We have blackout roller blinds and I roll them down a bit further than normal and blu-tack them to the glass in my son's bedroom to stop the light but we also have blackout lined dark curtains too. Light still comes in through the top but none from the sides.

Worth a try.
