When it comes to night-time diaper changes, it's challenging--in fact, nearly impossible--to find the perfect lamp. You need something that is bright enough so you can wipe thoroughly, look for diaper rash, etc, but you also don't want to light up the whole room and wake yourself and the baby. It's a tall order, but this is one of the use-cases that the Nightside Lamp was designed for!
I originally designed the Nightside Lamp to allow me to read in bed without waking my wife. But after we had our first child, my wife realized that it was also the perfect lamp for night-time diaper changes. She relied on it so much that the lamp migrated to the nursery, and I had to build another one for my bedside!
I've also been able to user-test the Nightside Lamp with friends who have newborns, just to see if they find it helpful or if there are design issues that need to be addressed. Our friend Lily (who appears in the photo accompanying this post) is one such 'beta user'. She uses the lamp every night to change her newborn's diapers, and her feedback has been invaluable. Thank you, Lily!
It makes me so happy to know that this product can help new parents get through one of the most exhausting and difficult phases of parenthood. If you are a new parent and looking for that perfect lamp for night-time diaper changes, the Nightside Lamp was designed with you in mind!
