Advantages: music, a light, nature sounds, timer it's got it all
Disadvantages: Can be set off by other noises in the house
We have two of these! I was so pleased with the way it helped my first child that I rushed out and bought another during my second pregnancy but my son never really needed his.
The first one we bought was a life saver. My daughter was quite a bad sleeper and I had done all the naughty things like feeding her to get her to sleep and rocking her in her pram!!!
Anyway, when I discovered I was pregnant again I decided that
something had to be done to get her to sleep on her own. I looked at about a hundred different night light musical things and this one appealed because it wasn't too expensive and it had nature sounds as well as lullabies.
My daughter loved it and wouldn't sleep without until she was about 2. I now have my third child using it and he is also
unwilling to sleep without his. We had trouble moving him into his own room but this musical box seemed to help.
The music box can be free standing or fitted to the side of the cot with plastic straps. It has a number of settings for lullabys, nature sounds or a mixture of both. The night light shines up and shows a small moving picture on the ceiling featuring stars and lambs. The light can be turned on and off or left to come on with the music. There is also a timer that you can set so that once you have started the music playing it will play for 5, 10 or 15 minutes. The lullaby/nature sounds can be set to come on when you baby wakes in the night and is activated by sound. This is great to help baby back to sleep but can be activated by other sounds such a voices or movement. On the front of the music box is a teddy bear asleep on a crescent moon and this moves slowly in front of some moving starts. This front part also lights up and can be set to be illuminated even when the ceiling light is switched off. There is also a button on the front for baby to press and this will turn the sounds on and also says "night night". All three of my children have loved this button and you often hear it going off when they have woken in the night and are amusing themselves before settling back to sleep.
I would recommend this night light to anyone as it has been so helpful to our family. The many different settings mean that you can change any of the features to suit the needs of you child.
Summary: Brilliant, wouldn't have been without ours!
