Through July, the sun rises at about 6 a.m., which, depending on your outlook, may or may not be a completely uncivilized time to get out of bed.
But for wee ones who are used to thinking that sunlight means playtime, it can be quite the battle to convince them to stay in bed during the summer. Likewise, convincing them to sleep when there is still full sun is also a struggle. When pleading, explaining, negotiating and bargaining all fail, try the Good Nite Lite.
This ingenious little night light can be set to your wake up and bed times: a sweet little sunshine will tell your tyke it’s time to be awake, and a softly glowing moon help her understand it’s still bedtime. Just pre-set it to whichever times you like, and the visual cues will help your child know when its time to start and end the day, ideally without any coercing from mom and dad.
The Good Night Lite is $35, and can be ordered online.
