i never ever could stand extra light on in the house when i was going to sleep i mean the kitchen light over the stove had to off in order for me to sleep<br><br>
well ever since hurrican ike and living in a house for almost 2 weeks with noo lights i had to sleep with a flash light on every night<br><br>
now that we have lights i have to have the light in the living room on very dim the kitchen light over the stove on and a night light<br><br>
my son now always ask for the night light tooo before he always said off light or night night lights lol<br><br>

I have, since ds was born, just because it makes nighttime diaper changes etc so much easier without fully waking either baby or me. I was also one of those who couldn't sleep with the tiniest light, but, like many many things, this has changed since I became a mama!

We've always used one as well, ds is almost 2 and 1/2. I always felt better using one especially for the part of the night that he is sleeping right next to me. I just want to be able to find him immediately....he has fallen out of bed more than once<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">, and also more than once I have had a nightmare about him and woken up groping around in bed to make sure he was right next to me.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I sometimes wonder if the fact that we have ALWAYS used one might lead him to be scared of the dark later on....

have used one since dd arrived over a year ago.<br><br>
we use a softer LED green night light. it seems to disrupt our eyes and sleep less than a glaring white one. it was a fiver at safeway, i think.<br><br>
helps me see where she is when she wakes up as she turns all the way around in her sleep. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

We have a nightlight on. At first I slept with the light beside my bed turned on, I couldn't help her get latched on without it. One day I realized I didn't need the light for nursing, but I left it on a bit longer so I could look at her whenever I wanted to!! Now it's just the nightlight! Actually that night light is one of my favorite shower gifts that I received!

we do. I say it's for the babies but we used one even before kids <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Absolutely. I used to hate having lights on during the night. In fact, this was worse during my pregnancy when I would get very mad if DH left the bathroom light on while I was sleeping. But since DD was born, I have to leave the light on in the adjoining bathroom while we sleep. It helps with diaper changes and getting the nipple in the mouth, stuff like that.
