Shed a light – a dim one – on middle of the night feedings. Any parent that has ever checked on her sleeping tot only to wake her as soon as the light turned on can appreciate the benefits of a night-light. While some mamas use electronic gadgets to provide the right amount of light, the natural instinct to flip the switch often wins.
The Gro-light attaches directly to your overhead light to provide a dim LED night-light with enough light to ensure that tots are sleeping comfortably. Currently only available in the U.K., the Gro-light can be left on through the night to help ward off night terrors, or flipped on through the usual light switch. Would you try the Gro-light for your late-night check-ins?
Good night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. MOM! Please turn on the light! When youngsters have a tough time getting shut-eye in a pitch black room, they will appreciate a lil light being shed on them. Save some tears and energy by keeping the overhead switch off and introducing one of these luminous friends to your tot.
When things go bump in the night, arm your wee one with a handy tool to ward them off. The Candela Candeloo Nightlight Set ($40) is a safe, portable, and reusable light set perfect for a babe's bedside stand. The modern and colorful lamps are lightweight, easily turned on with a touch of a button, and they don't get hot, so lil sleepy hands can tote them along on late night trips to the bathroom (or mommy and daddy's room).
Every child seems to go through a phase where he or she is afraid of the dark and restless before bedtime. There is often little a parent can do aside from creating a comfortable, cozy and calming bed space and reassuring lil ones there is no real "Boogie" man.
Of course, shining a little light on the subject always helps. I adore the Star Egg nightlight ($140), because it's pleasing to adult and child sensibilities. The Egg projects light through tiny openings on its ceramic surface, creating a soft light pattern on the ceiling. Nothing calls on sleep like counting stars.
