As a parent, it can be a struggle to get your child to sleep. With so many distractions in today's world, it can be difficult for kids to settle down and drift off to dreamland. That's where the Blissy Junior Sleep Mask comes in. This adorable sleep mask is specially designed for young children and can be incredibly beneficial for kids, helping them get the rest they need.

Do Ambient Light Sources Interfere With Your Child's Sleep?

There are many light sources that can be disruptive to a child's internal clock and make it harder for them to fall asleep and stay asleep. For example, streetlights outside a bedroom window can produce enough light to keep a child from falling into a deep sleep.

Light from electronic devices such as phones and tablets can also be disruptive, as the blue light emitted by these devices can suppress the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep.

Even small amounts of light from a nightlight or a hallway light can interfere with a child's sleep. For this reason, it's important to create a dark and calming sleep environment for your child, and a sleep or eye mask can be an easy and effective tool to help block out unwanted light sources.

Unlocking Sweet Dreams: How Sleep Masks for Kids Can Benefit Your Child's Sleep

Sleep masks are a great tool for both children and adults. They block out light, which can be especially helpful if your child's room is bright or if there are streetlights outside their window.

Sleep masks aid the production of melatonin by blocking light

According to SleepFoundation.org, "light exposure can suppress the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep and wake cycles" (2021). By wearing a sleep mask, your child's brain can better regulate their sleep cycle, making it easier for them to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.

Sleep masks promote relaxation and reduce anxiety

Another benefit of using a sleep mask for kids is that it can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. According to a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research, "the use of eye masks was found to decrease subjective sleep onset latency, enhance subjective sleep quality, and reduce anxiety symptoms in healthy participants" (2019).

By blocking out visual stimuli and promoting a sense of calm, sleep masks can be a helpful tool for children and adults who struggle with anxiety or have trouble relaxing at bedtime.

If they're scared of the dark

Many children have a fear of the dark, which can make it difficult for them to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. The Blissy Junior Sleep Mask can be a helpful tool to address this issue, as it allows children to sleep with their nightlight on while still blocking out enough light to help them fall asleep.

Your child can easily peek out or lift the mask if they get scared, so they feel secure and confident the light is there if they need it as they drift off to sleep.

Blissy Junior Sleep Mask Features

The Blissy Junior Sleep Mask is gorgeously handmade from 100% mulberry silk, making it ultra-soft and cozy. The mask is also cushioned, so it provides even more comfort! It also comes with an adjustable elastic band to ensure a comfortable fit for any child's head. 

The sleep mask is designed to block out light, providing the perfect environment for your child to drift off to sleep quickly and stay asleep longer. Plus, it's incredibly easy to care for thanks to its machine-washable material and comes with a matching carrying bag for added convenience.

The Illumination Minions x Blissy Collection features three adorable designs, including Sleepyhead Minion, Chillin' Minions, and Pink Bello Daisy Minions. Each design is fun and sure to delight your child and make them excited to wear their sleep mask.

Cleaning and Carrying the Blissy Junior Sleep Mask is Easy-Peasy

When it comes to caring for the Blissy Junior Sleep Mask, it's incredibly easy. The mask is machine washable, so you can simply toss it in the wash when it needs cleaning. We do recommend using a mesh laundry bag to protect the silk mask from abrasion. Using Blissy Wash will further extend the life of the sleep mask.

Plus, the matching carrying bag makes it easy to bring the sleep mask along wherever you go, whether it's for a nap on a long car ride or a sleepover at a friend's house.


Overall, the Blissy Junior Sleep Mask is a must-have for any parent looking to help their child get a better night's sleep. With its practical benefits, high-quality materials, and cute designs, it's sure to become a bedtime favorite for kids everywhere.
