Nightlights are often needed as our kids grow, for comfort, for safety if they need to get up in the middle of the night and more. Most nightlights are the plug-in kind and can stay on all night long and while the handheld flashlights can be great, they’re often bulky and often times require big batteries and have lights so bright they’ll wake your neighbor three windows over. This week we had the chance to try out the brand new and super cute Light My Way Portable Nightlight from Munchkin – shaped like an owl!
The design is so simple and yet so genius. The minute we turned it on (just 3 AAA batteries), I was in love with how soothing the light was. It’s a clean, soft white light that won’t light up the whole house, but it is just the right amount of light to give your kids comfort as they fall asleep or to light their way to the bathroom (or your bedroom…). The handle is perfect for toddler sized hands on up through adult. The best part? There’s an automatic shutoff after 20 minutes. No wasted power/battery usage from staying on all night! And don’t worry about the white plastic getting dirty easily – it washes clean in a snap with a damp cloth and a touch of mild soap, if necessary!
The Light My Way Portable Nightlight retails for around $13.99 from Amazon as well as a number of large retailers like Toys R Us, Target and others.
The second new product being released by Munchkin this month is the Lulla-Vibe Vibrating Mattress Pad. We’ve seen everything from vibrating animals to stuffed bears that mimic a womb sound with heartbeats, etc, but this takes comforting your infant to another level (without having to head out of the house for a car ride). The Lulla-Vibe is placed underneath the crib mattress and gently vibrates to help your baby fall asleep.
The vibration steps down as the timer runs down over the course of the 30 minutes. There are also two speeds of vibrations depending on what your baby needs. The power button requires being held down for a minute with some pressure, therefore it wouldn’t be easily turned on accidentally by small children. It meets all federal safety standards and operates on 4 AA batteries.

The Lulla-Vibe Vibrating Mattress Pad retails around $29.99 and can also be found at Toys R Us, Target and others.
