Babies and Night Lights: Why it’s beneficial to you and your child


We’ve all been through the situation of waking up in the middle of the night needing to go to the bathroom or perhaps getting a glass of water from the kitchen, and then having to bump on a table or step on some random object lying on the floor. It’s a hassle and a pain. It gets even worse when you have a baby and need to check up on him/her.

I’m sure you’ve used your phone’s flashlight function to guide you through the dark hallway, or maybe you’ve turned all your lights on completely, but did you know how harmful bright lights are for you and your child?

Having the right night light for you and your baby, in particular, is crucial. Here we will talk about how night lights affect your child.

Newborn babies need constant care and check-in up. During this time, you probably have your baby sleeping in the same room as you are so it’s more convenient. If you are like most people, you are probably more comfortable to fall asleep in a dark room. It’s also the best situation since our eyes’ response to darkness is rest. But having a baby in that same room and needing to check him/her means you have to turn on some sort of light. This is why having a night light gets handy.

There are many types of night lights you can choose from depending on your specific needs. If you have a baby, it is best to have a night light that has a soft glow and adjustable brightness. Double the points if that night light can be easily adjusted, especially by a simple touch control function. Having a touch control feature on your night light will allow you the ease of adjusting it to the appropriate brightness of your liking. Plus, you don’t need to keep feeling for the button or switch just to control it. A wonderful night lamp with this feature is the LED Luna Moon Lamp from GreenClickGlobal. Once you switch the button to auto mode, it will be completely touch-controlled. By touching the Luna Lamp, you can easily adjust its brightness to 100% bright, 50% bright, and off cycling. This auto mode can also sense and adjust the light by itself. There are many beautiful and functional moon lams, check our Moon Lamp buyers guide to find your favorite!

If you have a toddler, a night light would still be a good friend. Most toddlers are afraid of the dark, so putting out a night light for them may help with their sleep. Projection lights are great for toddlers since it shows different images your child will enjoy. However, having a projection light means you have to have ample space in order for it to show the image perfectly. Still, it’s a useful night light that’s also entertaining.

Preschoolers and older would probably be okay with a simple plug-in night light or a lamp and shade. These may not be the best night lights to have, but it would certainly be useful especially for midnight trips to the bathroom.
