One of the top ten things I would recommend new parents to get hold of is a lamp with soft night light, one that could be lit in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone.
Luckily I had such a lamp
before my first kid was born and I don’t know just all the trouble it has saved us in terms of babies being able to go on sleeping and parents who could open their eyes in the middle of the night without having to squint in pain.
One thing is for sure
if you’re having a baby. That is that you are going to be awake in the middle of the night. It’s no fun, but a way to make it a bit more bearable is to get hold of a soft light lamp. I would recommend one with a red light. Here is a link to the lamp I have which I am very happy with: http://www.petithome.co.uk/heico-little-mushroom-lamp-red—28cm-146-p.asCheck it out
