    Were sleeping with a nightlight in the room, but its mostly so I can see him without having to turn on the big light to do things.

    we tried to just use the little night light that came on the monitor but that is a no go

    it's either the light over the door or leave the light on in the bathroom with a crack

    maybe you can try a touch lamp with several settings. I got a lamp that has a low, med and high. I kept it on low all night and then after a few weeks started turning it off.

    I turn the light on above the stove, and let it shine. We're a one story house, and the stove light shines enough through the house that it's dark, but still bright enough. Lil' bebe was scared of the dark. She's been growing out of it, if it's any consolation.

    Have you thought of trying a blacklight. Thats what i used instead of a regular light. It still lights up the room but also gives you the dark appearance too.

    I use an LED night light and I have it right by his bassinet. It's pretty bright, but nothing like a normal light. I only use it for myself though, because he likes the dark best.

    My son never slept in a completely dark room. I always had a nightlight on. Now he has a Tyke Light Glomate that he really enjoys!

    I got Stacey a Tyke Light Jr. for her baby shower that her daughter seems to enjoy. It's really safe too!!!
