Life with Isla

Isla is 4 and a half months now, (where on earth has the time gone) and I’ve spent a lot of time looking back at the first 3 months of motherhood. The highs are high, the lows are low and no one can prepare you for what it’s like when you first bring your little […]

A NIGHT light can soothe babies to sleep and help toddlers feel less fearful of the dark at bedtime. We’ve rounded up the best night lights for you to know about to help your little ones sleep, based on our own favourite purchases and expert reviews. The best night lights to help banish any monsters and ensure a good night’s sleep for your child from feeling worried about the dark to agitations about shadows on the wall and monsters under the bed, there are plenty of things in their room to make your child feel anxious about bedtime. A night light can do a lot to help: provide a comforting light, as well as music, projections and a cuddly toy to watch over your little one next to the bed. Some night lights can let you know the temperature of a room, or ease toddlers and older children into helpful sleeping patterns where they don’t wake up too early. There are even night lights that double as sippy cups – ideal for curbing those middle-of-the-night “I need water!” pleas from your thirsty (or simply agitated?) three-year-old. We’re big believers that getting children to enjoy the bedtime ritual – and sleeping in their own beds – is crucial for both helping to establish a routine for little ones and for giving parents some much-needed R&R, without the kids, at the end of every busy day. Night lights also beneficial if you need to change or feed your baby in the middle of the night, or help one of your kids without disturbing another – you can take them to the loo, or give them some medicine, without turning all of the lights on. Night lights are useful and can make a decor statement in a child’s bedroom. No matter your style, budget or room décor prefs, we’re sure you’ll find one that works for you and your babies.

We have always felt that children deserve their opinion and deserve to be heard, and I think this definitely sets us all up for success. The […]

One of the important things we get drilled into us at NCT classes and the NHS is safe sleeping. This is the usual putting your baby on their back, feet to the foot of their crib/cot, no loose blankets or pillows, and of course ensuring that the room temperature is safe.
