Lizzie, David and Lucy all share a bedroom. This is problematic for many reasons, but there is nothing else we can do yet (two bedroom house). The biggest issue is Lizzie needs complete darkness to sleep. David and Lucy freak out if I turn off the lights and leave only a night light on.
That is why I agreed to write a sponsored post about the Smart Electric Good Night Dimmer Smart Bulb ™. They sent me some shatter-proof bulbs to review and I also received compensation. My opinions and experience are 100% my own.
So, how do these light bulbs help my problem?
When turned on a 2nd time in a lamp, SmartElectric Good Night Dimmer Smart Bulb ™ automatically begins to fade to complete darkness in 20 minutes!
It isn’t mean mommy turning off the lights. It isn’t abrupt from light to dark. It is a gradual, fading bulb on its own timer!
The other cool thing is that SmartElectric didn’t just make a bulb that fades on its own timer, they also made them shatter proof! You can literally throw it against the wall and it will not shatter in a million teeny shards!
When I was told the creator of SmartElectric is a grandfather, I was not surprised. He made these very kid friendly.
And one more thing that I had to tell you about them – if you are watching your money, you will love this! These bulbs last up to three times longer than regular bulbs and they have a 2-year unconditional guarantee!
How did David and Lucy react to this bulb?
Well…they are going through a terrible napping phase. I am trying to take away their naps, but always wuss out when their fits drive me mad. As they sleep, I think, “I am going to regret this later…but oh my word they are QUIET! No, I should wake them. NO WAY LET THEM SLEEP!” And the peace and quiet wins.
And they stay awake until 10pm.
And I vow to not let them sleep the next afternoon.
So when I tried this bulb at 9pm, it was on a day where I tried to endure their fits after waking them from a very short 30 minute nap. Turns out, any amount of sleep during the day is too much for them. But I tried…anyways they were awake at 9pm and I told them about the special light.
David and Lucy noticed it starting to get darker. They started their fits earlier and were kind of afraid, knowing that eventually it would be out completely.
So a not-very-sleepy 4 and 2 year old are probably not a good fit for this bulb. But 6.5 year old Lizzie loved it! She was able to read her book until she was sleepy, then fall asleep before it was completely dark.
One out of three kids isn’t bad, right?
I love them. I saw how Lizzie reacted and I bet once I get David and Lucy to stop napping, they will start to sleep with the light “on” and then all three will be asleep in darkness within 20 minutes.
