Hi all - not a big problem but just wondering what other people would do? Today I bought my DS(3.5yrs)a nightlight - one of those that is a torch when you pick it up and a nightlight when in base. He has always been a good sleeper but recently has been asking for the door to be left open and hall light on, which I then put off before I go to bed. The main problem is im on crutches at the moment as I have a broken ankle and im 13weeks pregnant, DP is working away so I could do without him waking up in the night at the moment. Do I turn the nightlight off (it is right next to his bed) or leave it, but maybe it will wake him up? or shall I move it further from his bed so its not as bright but then he might get up to get it? Any advice appreciated thanks, by the way I broke my ankle slipping on a door mat!
Both my DC's have to have their lights on when they go to bed. When they are asleep I usually go and turn them off, (if I am awake for long enough and can be bothered), but I know what light you are talking about as my DD has one and I would just leave that on tbh. The light is so dim it won't wake him up.
Dd has her light on and I just turn it down when she's asleep. If I turn it off and she wakes up she is very frightened so it's better to leave it on. Don't see how the light could wake them up if they've gone to sleep with it on. I totally gave in on the night light issue as I needed a light until I was 17!
the article relates to night light use before the age of 2 and was concerned with the eyesight of children aged 2-16 years. It said that the researchers found nolinkbetweencurrentnighttimelightingandsightproblems i.e. the critical period is from 0-2 years
