    Default Night time and bed

    My DS is 2 years and 4 months old and lately has been asking for a light on when we put him to bed. He's never had a light, he has music (white noise) on low, and we've always closed the door and he has his dummy. I'm not sure if I should hold off giving a light or not. What does your child/children have/use for bedtime?

    Both my boys like a bit of light. My older boy never use to worry but as he got older he started being scared of the dark. I use to use a night light for my little man but didnt matter where I put the thing he somehow managed to get it and break it. So we just leave the door open with a bathroom light on

    Default Night time and bed

    DS is two and he has a little dinosaur light that changes colour.

    We charge it up and put it on for him every night, but I don't think he cares if it's on or off really!

    When we've travelled with him and stayed in other accommodation we haven't taken it with us and he's had no trouble settling without it.

    Thanks for the replies.
    We can't leave the door open, he just comes out. Once he's asleep he doesn't wake up till around 7am (unless sick).
    I think I'll get a night light for him to see if that helps.

    Maybe a childs gate would help? Leave his door open but have a gate closing it so he cant get out?

    A night light would be cheaper though
