Recommendations for a "feeding light"

I'm currently co-sleeping with EBF DD who is 12 weeks. When I'm latching her on in the night, I use my phone to see what I'm doing. However, the light often startles her, and I'd rather not have my phone so near to her.

I'm looking for a small, dim light that would fit in my hand and be easy to switch on and off. Does such a beast exist??

We have this one. It has 3 brightness settings and a colour setting. We used the red setting in my daughters room as a nightlight up until she was 20 months old.

I'd recommend a dimmable lamp. Argos has a few for around £10. I have this one www.argos.co.uk/product/7063727?clickSR=slp:term:dimmable%20lamp:4:473:1

I have a lumie alarm clock which I'm using for feeding. When the alarm is set it slowly turns the light off too.

I had it pre baby as I find it helpful for waking up in the mornings particularly in winter!

Use red light because it won't stimulate the hormone that causes them to wake, there a plenty on Amazon

I used a Himalayan salt lamp for cosleeping as could sleep with it on. It gives a warm cosy glow. Not handheld though.

I used red fairy lights. Makes your bedroom look a bit like a brothel though so maybe go with some of the options above

Just buy a smart multi coloured dimmable bulb in your normal light & either Alexa or Google, you can get cheap ones from ikea

I also used a salt lamp, was really cosy not very bright as to disturb DS sleeping
