Pooh lamp for baby nurseryChoosing the right lighting for your baby’s nursery  is important.  The right light will complement the rest of the decor of the room – giving it an inviting and comforting atmosphere.

Ceiling lights are great for gloomy days and nights when you need the room fully lit. But, if your little one is almost asleep in your arms and you want to go to the crib to put baby down, you don’t want to wake him/her up with a bright light. But you also do not want to risk of tripping and falling because you leave the light off and can’t see well.

So it is nice to have an alternate light. Unless, of course, your ceiling light is on a green elephant lamp for nurserydimmer switch, in which case you can keep the lighting very low when you need to get
around the nursery without waking your baby up.

  • Place the light far enough away from the crib so that when your baby is a little older, they will not be able to reach it and hurt themselves.
  • Do have it in a place that is easy for you to reach.
  • Remember that if you are carrying your baby, you will only have one hand available to turn the light on with – so keep that in mind when choosing where to place your lamp.
