At the end of last year the wonderful team at the Gro Company asked me to review the Gro-Light for them. Over the years I’ve used the Grobag’s when the boys were tiny and even though they are now 7 & 8 they still use the Gro Clocks every night. I think highly of the Gro Company products and was very happy to try out the Gro Light.
What is the Gro-Light
The Gro-Light allows you to adapt a normal light fitting to use it as a night light, by turning the light on once you will get a glow from the blue Led’s on the Gro-Light fitting. If you turn the light off and on again then your normal lightbulb will come on lighting up the room. Such a simple but effective idea. There is also a dial on the side of the Gro Light which enables you to set the brightness of the LED’s.
How it works for us
I’ve had this in the box waiting for babies arrival and the chance to start using it. Darcey arrived on New Years Day so I have been using this in our bedroom for the last 6 weeks. I’ve attached it to my bedside light so that when I have to feed her in the night I can turn on the Gro-Light without even getting out of bed. It gives me enough light to see to change her nappy and feed her.
As we are encouraging her to know the difference between day and night, so that she sleeps at night, we want to make sure that when she wakes in the night we keep the room as dark and quiet as possible. The Gro-Light allows us to do this and without it I’d be struggling in the dark trying to make sure she was latched on properly.
As Darcey gets older and moves into her own room I can then transfer it into the main light in her bedroom to keep the routine going. I remember when I had Ben 7 years ago I was looking for a product like this and there just wasn’t one available.
The Gro-Light retails for around £17.95 and is available in either a screw or bayonet fitting. For more information visit the Gro store.
I’ve been so impressed with this product that I’ve ordered another one for the bathroom. This way when the boys get up in the night to use the toilet they can see what they are doing and won’t keep leaving the bright light on all night.
