A night light, as the name suggests, is a small light used at night, such as a Motion Sensor Led Light, table light, Decorative Lights, etc. These lights are usually dim, with low power ranging from 4 to 7 watts. Night lights are quite practical for families with nighttime activities like feeding, diaper changing, soothing, and waking up. They eliminate the need for fumbling in the dark and avoid the discomfort of turning on bright lights in the middle of the night.

Therefore, it's not surprising that many parents use night lights.

Concerning the "harm" of night lights, the most commonly heard claims include causing early puberty, affecting vision, disrupting sleep, and impacting growth and bone development in children.

In reality, these "health hazards" of night lights have not been conclusively proven by high-quality evidence so far. Some of these claims are based on theoretical deductions, while others rely on very preliminary animal studies. Furthermore, different studies have yielded conflicting conclusions.

Perhaps the lack of sufficient evidence is why these "health hazards" associated with night lights has not led any country or relevant authority to propose a ban on their use for children.

Therefore, using night lights is considered safe.
