Types of Baby Night Lights
Adding a night light to your baby’s room can make it easier for you to change your baby in the middle of the night. And, of course, it can help prevent your child from waking up at night and becoming anxious or grumpy in the morning.
There are many different types of baby night light but each one can be useful in helping your child sleep more soundly. Whether it’s a soft, ambient night light or a projection style that projects an image onto your nursery wall, we’ve got something to suit all babies’ needs.

6. Sleeping Buddy by Dream On Embrace
This cute night light from Dream On Embrace has an adjustable brightness so you can adjust it to your baby’s needs. It can also be used with or without aromatherapy, which is great if you’re looking for a calming scent to put them to sleep.
The blue light emitted by most children’s night lights interferes with the body’s ability to produce melatonin, which is necessary for a restful sleep. In fact, the Journal of Pineal Research found that blue-light-emitting nursery lamps can actually stop your baby from sleeping through the night.
