    My DS is 10 and still needs one. We've replaced the bulb with a blue lightbulb as they give a low light and no shadows.

    Of course! Get a little low wattage night light maybe. Why force her to sleep alone in the dark? Sometimes I still fall asleep with the lamp on - I'm almost 30!

    Default 5yr old has to sleep with the lamp on - would you let her?

    my 5yo son wants to have his lamp, room light , our room light & hallway light on to fall asleep. the other rooms doors must be closed also. I don't mind, I turn off all of them except his lamp before I go to bed.

    Default Re: 5yr old has to sleep with the lamp on - would you let her?

    I leave a light on for my 5yr old plus myself as i have trouble sleeping without it on. Even when i am home by myself, the toilet light is always on. Its more of a comfort thing for me i think, just as it is for my son. If she sleeps better with it on, go for it. Are there lower watt light globes(not sure if there is sorry) that you could buy for the lamp?

    Yes I would. I was afraid of the dark as a child. My son of 4 has had the light on for a year , he has just let me turn it off over the last month as I bought sticky stars that illuminate in the dark and he wanted to see them . I think the stress of having the light off is worse than sleeping with the light on. I used to get to the point of breathing fast and nearly crying!

    We turn our DDs lamp off before we go to bed, some nights I get up to find it turned on again as she has woken up and found it off. We have a dim light on down the hall anyway as I get up to DD2 still, but I don't think having light right beside you at night is healthy as it interferes with your circadian rhythm.

    I think if it helps her sleep, then just let her have it on. Maybe turn one or two of the other lights off.
    Could you put fairy lights up in her room instead?? Might be less wattage to

    We bought a dimmer switch from ikea which can be attached to any lamp. Both my 3 and 6 yo have them and have their lamps on when they go to bed. DDs gets turned off completely when we go to bed, she seemed to only want it because DS has one. We turn his down to almost off but he does turn it up in the night if he has a bad dream but at 6 he can manage that without waking the whole house.

    I've never been a fan of night lights but clearly my kids are so I just went with it.
