are light projectors good for newborns?

Light projectors can be a great way to create a relaxing atmosphere for the baby to settle and fall asleep however it is best to avoid too many bright lights as this will keep the little one too stimulated. 

It is not recommended to leave bright lights on all night as this can affect the quality of sleep that the baby has, and it can affect the body clock of the little one. 

A small light or dim light is perfectly fine to be used even throughout the night without causing any problems. Most night lights can be left on a dim setting.

how long will you use a baby projector?

When you opt to use a baby night light it is most likely that this will be part of the nightly routine. The little one will learn to use the light to help comfort them and relax enough to fall asleep.

The age at which the child will no longer require the night light will vary greatly from one child to another. 

When a child is a baby, it is unlikely that they will have any fear, therefore, they could sleep in a dark, however at this stage the light is useful for night-time feeds and prevents over stimulating the baby during the feed with having the room too bright. 

At around twelve months of age, the child may start to develop a fear of the dark, as their starting to feel emotions and it is at this point, they will use the light to comfort them when going to sleep.

Are baby projectors safe?

It is not a good idea to keep a bright light on all night however a dim light is fine to have on all night in the child’s bedroom.

Once the child has fallen asleep it is best to switch the projector feature and just leave a dim night as this will prevent the room from being overstimulating. 

Baby projectors are safe for babies if you follow the guidelines, and these vary depending on the model.   

Also, follow general safety advice that is issued with all electrical appliances and devices. As with everything else keep small parts from the child to avoid any accidents.

do baby projectors help your baby sleep?

Baby projectors use LED lights which can be useful for triggering the release of melatonin in the child’s body and this encourages them to sleep.

These devices are ideal as a soother to help babies and young children sleep. The white, blue and green lights are best for assisting the baby to fall asleep quickly and get a peaceful sleep. Just be sure to not place it to close to your baby monitor as it can cause interference. 

The lights that are provided by the night lights are emitted on a shorter wavelength than normal light, therefore, offering a less stimulating form of light. 

Some babies will prefer to sleep in a dark room and this is fine and is something that can increase the level of melatonin. 

Although there is some scientific evidence that any form of light can affect sleep for many years now parents have found night lights to be very useful when it comes to bedtime for their children.

How to choose a baby projector and what to consider

budget:

There is a wide range of baby projector devices that are available these vary considerably in price from about twenty pounds to one hundred and thirty pounds.

There really is no need to spend a massive amount of money on a device but find one that fits your requirements.

battery or mains plug:

There are advantages and disadvantages of both options. The mains powered devices will mean there is no need to keep a constant supply of batteries, however when there is a loss of electricity then the battery-operated devices will keep working.

Whether to opt for a battery-operated device or a main powered device will really come down to personal preference.

can it be wall mounted:

A wall mounted night light can be a good idea however it limits the flexibility in terms of where you use it.

One advantage of a wall mounted device is that it can’t be accidentally knocked over by the child.

Whether or not to opt for one of these devices will really come down to preference and what will work best in your little one’s bedroom.

Do you have somewhere to place it?:

Where you put the night light projector will really depend on the type of device that you opt for as you may opt for one of the cuddly toy types or you may opt for one of the bigger machines types. 

You will want to avoid sitting the device somewhere that will create dark corners of the bedroom as this can lead to fear of that specific dark corner, therefore you will want the room to be lit without being too bright and stimulating.
