A common cause of babies not sleeping and hence crying at night is feeling lonely and isolated. Night lights light the room making it less dark and threatening for baby. They are able to see things that are familiar around him/her and feel more reassured increasing the liklihood of sleep. Many night lights can also make soothing sounds or play music which can also reassure baby and ensure some extra sleep for their parents! View our extensive night light selection below.
Often babies feel insecure and scared following birth. They have been enclosed in a tight environment that doesn't allow them much space to move. Once out, and able to swing their limbs freely, they can become insecure and frightened. A good solution for this is using a swaddle. These are used to wrap up babies tightly mimicking their position in the womb. They will feel safer and often sleep for longer. The most popular swaddles available in Australia are the Love To Dream and Ergobaby Swaddles. You can view these below.
