Good Nite Lite Review & Giveaway!

"The objective of the "Good Nite Lite" is to educate children to stay in bed until it is morning. Children between the ages of 3 and 5 years of age are just starting to grasp the concept of day and night and how it relates to regularly scheduled rest. The Good Nite Lite can assist children with better differentiating the concept of nighttime and daytime and reinforce the benefits of appropriate sleep patterns. The Good Nite Lite device itself is an innovative combination of a traditional night light and a built in timer that changes the visual display characteristics to reinforce a regular sleep pattern. "


It almost never fails, Cooper wants to wake up before the crack of dawn on the weekends. I have tried everything I know of to get him to sleep in, but everything seems to backfire on me.

When I received the Good Nite Lite, I was very eager to give it a try. The Good Nite Lite is made so that parents can choose the time that the Moon Face will shine, as well as set the wake up time, when the Sun Face shines.
So far, it seems to be working well. I explained to Cooper that when his light changes to the blue Moon Face, that means it is time for bed. Going to bed has never really been a problem at our house, so that was the easy part. Then I told Cooper that it was not time to wake up until his light changed to the Sun Face, which I set for 7am. So far, it actually seems to be working. As a matter of fact, this morning, I woke up to my son telling me "The sun is on, Mommy! Time to get up!".

I think the Good Nite Lite is a very easy, practical way to help teach your child proper bedtime and wake up times. I would recommend this product for any parent with a child who has trouble with bedtimes, or who has an early riser, like I did.

BUY IT! You can buy your own Good Nite Lite at http://www.goodnitelite.com/.

WIN IT! Good Nite Lite has generously offered to give one lucky winner their own Good Nite Lite!

Uh - BOTH! He likes to stay up late and still wakes up early. Apparently my husband was like that as a child and my dad was so apparently I lose. This clock just may work though!

My daughter has a little one that insists on getting up at the crack of dawn! I remember that my kids would do that too.

I think she would love to try this!

The kiddo is only 11 months right now. When she's not teething, she's pretty easy to get to bed and recently she's started sleeping later. I think this will be great once she gets a little older (and especially Christmas morning!).

We have an early riser, and we don't have problems with getting our daughter down for bed, but our main problem is having her stay in bed -- she's up many times each night!

My son never wants to go to bed. He just becomes more crazy until you finally give up and lay down with him to make sure he stays in the bed. He also just turned 3, so I would really love to try this night light out on him.

It is very hard for us to get our 4yr old sleep in his bed. He always wants either my husband or I to sleep with him. A nite lite would be great to try.

A. Smith said...

My daughter rises early in the morning so there's no problem there but bedtime is always party time for her. I can't seem to get her interested in settling down at night. Perhaps this could help :)

mutchkin21 said...

Just recently we have been able to put her in her crib at night as she is attached to her tigger stuffed animal. But for naps, she wants to be next to me, which can be a pain when I fall asleep with her instead of doing cleaning or school work. She also is a very picky sleeper. She will only sleep in the car and at home in our bed. She won't sleep on the floor, in her stroller, carrying her or sorts like that.

My daughter is 2 1/2 and ever since she climbed out of her crib at 23 months, we have a kiddo who wakes up WAY too early. We haven't found a solution to the early wake up, kiddo in our bed problem. Don't mind the kiddo in the bed every once and awhile, but every morning as soon as the sun rises, is a bit much :) Would love to try out this nightlight with my daughter!!
