Good Nite Lite - Better than a night light
This cute little night light - with a shining sun for day and sleepy moon for night - is actually a clever behavioral modification device designed to help little munchkins learn to sleep by using visual cues. With all the recent studies about our Circadian rhythms using external cues such as daylight to control our bodies' sleep patterns, I'm surprised it took someone so long to invent this for small children.
Studies have shown that a well-rested child is happier, less cranky and learns better than those kiddies who are sleep deprived. Designed for children ages 3-5, it's plug and play and uses a default 7am to 7pm period for sleep (which is easily modified), and automatically shuts off during the day.
Available in September for $34.99 at Good Nite Lite.
