Do you have a little one on the way? You’re probably spending a lot of time looking for different types of gear you’re going to need to make your nursery just right. One area you might not expect to be looking in is night lights. But we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together a baby night light buying guide to help you choose the right light for you. Let’s look at some things you should know before you start shopping.
Dimmable: Can you change the brightness setting on the light? Some lights will come with a dimming function so the light doesn’t keep baby awake at night. This is really useful for newborns that aren’t used to the light.
Type: This refers to how the light functions. Is it a projector that beams lights and patterns onto the ceiling, or a flashlight-style that can be carried around with you? They might even be a lamp style light.
Power: This determines how portable the light is. If it’s powered by batteries, you can take it anywhere. Some of these are even rechargeable so you don’t have to purchase batteries. Others plug directly into the wall for power.
Multi-Function: Is it just a light, or does it also play music? Some baby night lights also double as noise machines or lullaby machines and will play music for a set time at the same time the light is going.
Size: This is the dimensions of the light. It’s important to know how big it is so you know if it will fit on your bed stand or not. If it’s a flashlight, this might also determine what size child can carry it around.
Warranty: A warranty protects your purchase. If there’s a problem with it, you are going to get it refunded or replaced. Within a certain time frame, a warranty allows you to do this.
