Sometimes We Forget

Since the arrival of Ayden, I am reminded of everyday little things that we are so used to that we took them for granted. One such example is switching on the lights when the little one is sleeping. We are so used to turn on the lights in the middle of the night to check on Ethan (though he hates it when he was younger but got used to it as he grows older) that I’m doing the same with Ayden but it seems that he does not appreciate the sudden brightness in his eyes.
Lights on comic

The sudden brightness hurts his still sensitive eyes I guess..

light bulb

Because of that I bought a light bulb and placed it on the floor just in case I need some light at night (during feeding or nappy change) and this way, it won’t hurt his eyes at all :)

    Night light is helpful. I always have a night light for night feeding and like you said may not annoy your kids when you switch on the ceiling light in middle of night. :) My 2 elder kids are getting used to no night light since moved here more than 2 months ago and some more no more night feeding for them.

    Wah your light bulb not covered one ah. Mine is just a small night light that I use at my parents house. We turn on the night lamp (yellow light) with adjustable brightness when back home.
