    Ruby's room has a dimmer switch and it's on the lowest setting all night, she prefers that.

    She has always had it dark mainly because when she used to sleep in our room DH cant sleep with any light, its never seemed to bother her.
    Now shes in her own room, if we leave the landing light on she cries until we turn it off!! I think because that is what she is used to though.
    I used to have a night light as a child, made me feel really secure xxx

    We leave the hall light on until we go to bed (her door is closed though), but then it's lights out! xx

    We turn the light off in our room, she likes the dark. But we do have the hall light on until we go up, I don't know that she notices it though!!

    We had the bedside lamp on in the bedroom for the first 6 weeks whilst she was settling in.
    Then we bought some dim nightlights and we still use these now at 6 months. we still all sleep in the same room, I'm used to it now so is DH.

    in the day she sleeps in a light bedroom - ie ; daylight quite happily.
    at night pitch black.
    accidentally though last night she kept stirring, moving and letting out the odd cry.
    left her to it as she never woke up and only at 11pm when I went to brush my teeth did I notice light under the door...OH must have switched the light accidentally when he put her to bed.
    poor baby - 60w bulbs shining down on her - hahaha
