Baby Blogging: The Best Nightlights

So I've noticed that the typical nightlight that you plug into the outlet is just not enough, plus they can be dangerous because if baby can reach them they want to play with them. So here are my favorites that light up my sleepless nights :)

This one comes as a turtle, sea turtle or ladybug that shows three different colors of stars and turns off after 30 minutes by itself. It lights up the room with stars all over the ceiling!

I use this one as a nightlight also. The waterfall makes the room glow and it turns off after 15 minutes by itself.

This one is the best! It has Three soothing natural sounds to choose from: heartbeat, rainforest or ocean
Play one of the three tender lullabies: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Rock-A-Bye Baby and Brahms Cradle Song, The image projector gently rotates one of three interchangeable image disks that show either stars and moons, birds or fish, it also has 15, 30 or 45 minute auto-off timer

Dressing a Toddler


My 2 year old daughter has gotten to the point of picking out her own clothes. Even if it's pajamas (usually with a princess on it) she won't give in. I now hide certain outfits from her if they don't fit with the weather outside. She's just like mommy I guess. I picked my clothes out at 2 and was determined to wear what I wanted..and nothings changed.
If she doesn't think a jacket goes with what she's wearing she refuses. She's even slept in her princess dress up clothes because she wouldn't take them off!
It's funny but also frustrating. The only time she throws a tantrum is when she is wearing something she doesn't like.
I know you have to pick your battles plus she actually has pretty good taste!
