Gear Thursday: Cloud B Twilight Turtle

If you read my Random Shorts post a few days ago you may remember that we have a new routine that we've been doing to get Miloh to sleep. One of the things that we bought to help is this Twilight Turtle nightlight. I'm not even exaggerating when I say this is one of the best things ever...it's so cool and soothing that Staci and I want to get one for our room...

It's actually rather simple but so nice. It's a soft turtle with a hard plastic shell. On the shell are cutouts of constellations...so when you turn the lights on the constellations shine throughout the room. You can change the color of the lights to green, blue or amber. The green and blue are the brightest and it's reminiscent of those glow in the dark stars but a lot less hassle and a lot less permanant.

It's incredibly soothing and it shuts off in 45 minutes just as your baby (hopefully) falls asleep.

One thing I'm really digging is that 8 real constellations shine on your ceiling and walls...I think that will be cool for Miloh when he's older...it will be a learning tool.

There are two other styles of night light including a lady bug and a  sea turtle, which is even cuter than this turtle and which some of the money goes to a conservation charity.

  2. I got this and the sleep sheep at the same time. Elise doesn't seem very interested in it. I didn't know it shows real constellations though. Interesting!

  3. I wrote this post 2 days ago...but I should add that yesterday when I turned it on at night Miloh instantly started looking at the stars (in what I thought was amazement but you never know)

  5. We have this same turtle. I Love it. Except its out of batteries right now. Its nicer to look at than a regular night lite. We have both though cause I feel bad for Milo when he wakes up and the room is pitch black. I love looking at the constellations and trying to figure them out!

  6. another great baby item for getting them to go to bed is the fisher price lullaby seahorse. it's cheap and babies adore it, plus the thing glows like the glowworms we had as kids- so when you take it in the car, you can use it as a nightlight to check on them in the dark. bonus!

    this is my first time on your blog, love it, your kiddo is adorable. plus i love the "now with baby" at the top. lol
