|A nightlight is essential because as your little one ages, he or she may very likely develop a fear of the dark. This is very common, so providing a nightlight that is always on, even from the very first night you bring baby home, will help to alleviate some of that fear. A nightlight is something your little one will learn to trust in, and it may make it possible for baby to calm himself a little easier in the middle of the night if he can see the room a bit.|
|Also make sure that you pick out a lamp. There are plenty of fun nursery lamps that will provide just a little bit of light in one corner of the room. Place the lamp across the room from the crib so that if you want to check on baby in the middle of the night without waking her, you can flip on the lamp without the risk of it shining in her eyes and waking her up. When choosing a lamp, make sure that you choose a lamp that sits on top of a nightstand or dresser and remember to hide the cords behind the furniture. Floor lamps can be a fire hazard in nurseries because they can be very easy to knock down, especially if baby can reach it from the crib.|
The key is just a little bit of light, but not so much light that it’s hard to take a nap. Remember to keep cribs away from shades and blinds because the cords do prevent a very serious choking hazard.
