No TV or anything to distract bub. I use my phone like I am now.
The light of my phone is bright enough, the light of an iPad would be too much though.
How old is bub?

I used to have just a little night light so I wouldn't bump into things, and would feed in his room in the quiet, as DS was easily overstimulated. At the start I would play on my phone, but then I realised that I would find it soooo much harder to get back to sleep myself if I had used my phone. I think I've read something about the light from your phone/tablet stimulating your brain too much and reducing your melatonin levels. So I ended up giving that up too, otherwise I was awake for ages afterwards and would only get back to sleep as he was waking for his next feed!

With DS I did full on light on, change nappy first then feed in front of the TV. Dont know why, the full on light on and changing when he probably didn't even need to be changed woke him right up and the TV stimulated ME too much so took me forever to fall back to sleep.
I'll definitely be doing the dim night light and in bed feeding next time.

Would it be possible to have a night or two away from him? If feeding isn't an option, he will have to resettle eventually.
