Why Red Light Needs To Become Part Of Your Bedtime Routine

Why Red Light Needs To Become Part Of Your Bedtime Routine - LUMI Sleep

What's the connection between the colour of light and helping your little one drift off to sleep? Well, it turns out that certain colours, like amber and red, have unique properties that make them ideal for bedtime. These hues boast longer wavelengths compared to other colours and have a lower temperature than the bright sunlight. This combination of characteristics gives amber and red a warm, soothing quality that can work wonders in promoting a good night's sleep.

Red Light Combats The Adverse Effects Of Blue Light

The magic of red light lies in its ability to counteract the adverse effects of blue light, which we all know can wreak havoc on our sleep patterns, especially when it comes to infants and toddlers. With the increasing screen time children are exposed to, blocking or neutralising the harmful impact of blue light has never been more critical. Some people resort to blue light blocking glasses in the evening, but for the youngest members of the family, falling asleep to the gentle glow of red light can be a natural and effective solution to mitigate the disruptions caused by blue light. This red light not only helps them doze off peacefully but also ensures a restful night's sleep.

Red Light Alleviates Fear Of The Dark

Red light can also come to the rescue for parents dealing with toddlers who are afraid of the dark. It's not uncommon for children as young as 18 months to experience fear of the dark. Night lights are often introduced to provide comfort, but sometimes they can unintentionally disrupt sleep patterns. However, by switching to red lights instead of the conventional white ones, you can create a comforting and soothing environment that helps your child sleep soundly without being fearful of the dark.
