Is it okay to use a night light for a baby's sleep

Many parents use a night light to facilitate taking care of their children at night, but it's generally better to avoid using a night light as much as possible. It's preferable to let the child fall asleep in a relatively dim or dark environment.

The impact of using a night light for a baby's sleep includes:

  1. Sleep Disruption: Using a night light can make the child restless, affecting the quality of sleep.
  2. Growth and Development: The use of a night light can disrupt the normal secretion of melatonin in the body, and reduced melatonin secretion can impact the child's growth and development.
  3. Visual Development: Sleeping with a night light, due to exposure to light, keeps the child's retinas and the muscles around the eyes in a state of insufficient rest. Prolonged exposure may affect the child's visual development, leading to early-onset myopia.
If you must use a night light, try to choose one with lower power or one that emits dimmer light. Additionally, placing the night light lower, preferably below the level of the bed, creates a subdued light atmosphere. It's also advisable to minimize the duration the night light is on to reduce its impact on the child.

For example, this Soft-Motion Sensor Led Light has a power consumption of only 0.2 watts and can be placed anywhere in the room. During the day, it remains quiet without drawing attention. At night, when you get up and your feet touch the ground, the soft yellowish light of the Soft-Motion Sensor Led Light illuminates, providing clear visibility without being glaring. It won't disturb your partner or child nearby, and it automatically turns off after 20 seconds. It doesn't require internet connectivity or manual operation. With a simple combination of a photoresistor, infrared sensor, and appropriate light intensity, it addresses the dilemma of wanting to see clearly without disturbing others. Moreover, with a 400mA battery capacity, it has excellent durability – I've been using it for a year without needing a replacement. In my opinion, it's a reliable smart home product.
