Parents have praised a ‘lifesaver’ hack for travelling with kids that can save their valuable early morning sleep on their next family holiday. A TikTok mum shared the one item she just “can’t go anywhere” without, which she said was “fairly reasonably priced”.
“Boy mum & organised type” Daisy Woods uploads videos on the social media platform of her “muddling her way” through motherhood. In one of them, she revealed her number one travelling with kids must-have – and it’s nothing else but a portable black-out blind.
“Ours is just from the Gro company and I got it from Amazon. It’s fairly reasonably priced and it has these suckers on the side, so you can stick them up it’s a really big size,” Daisy said and added: “It even works for like long windows in apartments on holiday.”
She went on to compare how much light was let by a window with another curtain versus with the blind on. The difference was like night and day.
TikTok users went mad over the simple yet game-changer tip and shared their own experiences. Becca Teague said: “We have one and it’s amazing!! No crack of dawn wake ups for us anymore.” and Marella Minardi added: “This is a lifesaver! I use it religiously March to October!”
Meg Rosina Honeysett-Meadows proclaimed: “These are a god send with our new build,” while Cait xx said: “I immidiately went on the amazon and bought 2 of them for the grls”. The post helped other make up their mind. Becca Sale said: “Oooh I’m going away next weekend and I was debating one of these! Buying now.”
Meanwhile, adriennefr1 offered an alternative route to solving the same problem. They said: “We use black trash bags and masking tape. They fold up tiny.”
