Night light.

Today I'll be writing about something as simple as a night light. It might seem stupid but it has proven so useful that I want to dedicate a post to this article. Before having it, we would switch on the light of the bedroom every time we had to see the baby, either because we had to feed him, change him, check that he was properly covered, because he cried or just to check whether he was sleep or not. Switching on the light resulted in awaking him or at least exciting him, and it would then be much more difficult to put him to sleep. With one of this night lights we can perfectly see his face, so you do not need to switch on the light every time you have to check something. They are, or at least the one we have, very dim so it does not disturb us at all to get our sleep. The quality of the baby sleeping has definitely improved since we have this light.

Hi I have commented before but not left my name and I had a suggestion for you: the mobile we have for my youngest son has a night light built right into it and is soft enought that even though it is directly over his face it doesn't wake him up and when he is awake and watching it there are designs on the light that he can watch spin around and he loves it(also it is push button and battery operated not one of those noisy wind up ones)

I just found you through a comment you made on a DYM post. When my babies were tiny we put a tap light at the foot of their changing table. They're small, battery powered (therefore portable), and put off a soft glow that is still enough to change a diaper by, but will not induce the full blown awakeness of a bright light...plus you can shut it off when you go back to bed.
