Review: Good Nite Lite

mfgiftguideitemYounger kids, especially those under the age of 5 or so, usually haven’t quite mastered the concept of time yet so when they wake up in the middle of the night and think it’s time to start the day, us parents have to as well.  That’s when a product like the Good Nite Lite may just come in handy.

The Good Nite Lite is a patent pending, behavioral modification device designed to promote a child’s ability to get the rest that is critical for healthy development. We were recently sent a free Good Nite Lite to test out and share our experiences with our readers.

Unfortunately, if the established pattern is to wake up too early, the result is a that a child will become active on their own schedule which interferes with their own healthy sleep pattern and can be a disruptive influence to the entire household particularly Mom and Dad! It can be extremely difficult to modify this pattern without a visual cue that can be easily understood by even very young children. The Good Nite Lite provides exactly this behavioral cue with its easily distinguished display of the Moon, meaning, “time to rest” and Sun display meaning “time to get up!”.

Rest is one of the most important requirements for development and learning and a well-rested child is normally happier and better behaved than those that may be sleep deprived. To encourage the appropriate sleep pattern, the Good Nite Lite can gradually be set to longer and longer sleep periods until the child is getting the full nights rest required.”

The Review:

Setting up the Good Nite Lite is pretty easy.. it’s basic and the comes with an instruction manual for parents like me who just need instructions to be sure everything is done correctly. I did have to rearrange a little because the Good Nite Lite took up an entire outlet, but that wasn’t too hard. It took some creativity on my part but I got the job done quickly!

The back of the night light includes the plug so you can plug it in to an outlet, a battery compartment, and an on/off switch. There is also an LCD screen, set, mode and select buttons that allow you to set the current time, bed time, and wake up time.

Now, once you have the set the times to preferences it should work like this.. when it’s the time you’ve set to wake up.. the sun part of the lite will shine..

and when it’s bedtime the moon part will glow. (It’s a really bright blue for a few minutes but then dims downs to a lesser brightness and serves as a night light for your child as well)

Another great thing about this is that during the daytime, the lite will shut off to preserve energy and you don’t have to reset it each night.

Retailing at $34.99 it may be considered little pricey but to me it’s worth it if it works with your child and everyone gets a little extra sleep at night!
