What to Know About Smart Baby Lights
Yes, even baby night lights have gone “smart.” Besides providing your little one’s room with soft illumination, today’s baby night lights can also function as a sound machine, alarm clock, light projector and more. Here are six smart baby night lights that earn top marks.
The Fisher-Price Smart Connect Deluxe Soother checks a lot of boxes. It offers three lighting options (a soft amber and star and animal projections) and three sound options with volume control. It also plugs-in to an outlet so spent batteries are never a concern. Its Smart Connect app lets you control everything from your smartphone, including the option to set a personalized bedtime sequence for your little one.
You get a slew of great features with the Hatch Rest + Baby Sound Machine and Night Light. The Alexa-enabled device lets you remotely play a library of sleep-inducing sounds, set the light to a rainbow of different colors, listen and talk to your child through an audio monitor, and set programs to help sleep-train your child. It’s so smart that the digital LED clock even auto updates at the start of Daylight Savings Time.
Best Budget Buy
Parents keeping a careful eye on their bottom line will appreciate the VAVA Home Night Light. It comes in three soothing colors and turns on and off with just a simple tap. Another tap on its logo lets you set a one-hour timer. Easily recharge its battery with the included charging base and USB charging cable. Older kids will enjoy decorating the night light with the 20 expression stickers, also included.
Best Light Projector
Kids will love gazing at the star projections emitted from the Yachance Baby Night Light Projector. Its LED lamp bead projects in eight colors while slowly rotating. The sound machine comes preloaded with nine soothing sounds, and a memory card (included) lets you record up to 20 of your lullabies. A final plus: The remote control, also included, that lets you customize the color, brightness, sound, volume and more from up to 35 feet away.
Kids will love the animal designs from LumiPets LED Nursery Light. There are four adorable options: bear, dragon, owl and unicorn. Besides its super-cute design, the night light earns kudos for its soft, squishy material for kids to hold, rechargeable battery and a remote control that lets you choose among nine light colors. Plus, you can set a sleep timer and adjust the brightness level.
Best Gentle Wake
Rousing a sleepyhead is easier with LittleHippo Mella. In addition to having a night light function with five color options, the Mella also functions as an alarm clock and sleep-trainer. It lets you choose from three alarm sounds, and uses colors and facial expressions to let kids know when it’s time to sleep and wake up. It also plays three peaceful sleep sounds to lull your tyke to dreamland.
