Tykelight Buddy Nightlight by Mobi
I actually bought this light a while ago, but only recently have I started using it again. Now that Mini is more anxious about me and Mr. Right-Click leaving the room, the Tykelight is really helping easing the transition to bedtime. A week or two ago, I noticed that Mini would be quietly lying down in his crib, and I’d turn out the light, and then BAM! the whining would begin. Yeah, they say kids don’t get scared of the dark until age 3 or 4, but whatev, I know cause-and-effect when I see it.
So I figured, why not give a nightlight a try? And dragged the Tyke Light out of the closet, where I had stowed it about six months ago, having eliminated the need for it once Mini started sleeping through the night and I didn’t have to trip over diapers and crap in the middle of the night to soothe him. The cool thing about this particular nightlight is that, when Mini is old enough to require middle-of-the-night trips to the potty, he can take the light with him–the light is activated both by a button on the bottom of the figure, as well as by being placed in its base. So, a simple grab and he’s got a glowing buddy to keep him company through the scary hallways late at night.
