Review & Giveaway: Gro-Light


The Gro Company, www.Gro.co.uk,  are the home of safe sleep! Their innovative products aim to make life easier for parents, aspiring to provide us with that little extra sleep we soooo deserve, and safely.

One of these products are the Gro-light – RRP £17.99

"The Gro-light: From night light to bright light at the flick of a switch"

The Gro-light sounded like a slightly 'odd' product. I've seen nightlights that plug into wall sockets or are battery operated - but to attach to the ceiling light or bedside lamp directly? - certainly not something I've seen or heard of before from any other brand. 

When I received it, I must admit I had to actually read the instructions as to what I was to do with it (very unlike me!) Alas I was blighted by baby-brain as, in reality, it was unbelievably simple to install. Simply pop it in to the light fixture (be it a bedside lamp or ceiling light) and then pop the bulb into the Gro-light instead of the fixture. Think of it as an extender to the original lamp.

Literally - flick the switch once for the night light and twice for the normal light. 

Now, I hate having light when I sleep and usually have my bedroom door closed with just the bathroom light on for Carson in case he needs the loo in the night. Since Finley arrived, I'm obviously a lot more paranoid in that I need to see him at any given moment throughout the night, not least to get up and do the feed. I had been keeping the bedroom door open and the landing light on. Irritating, but was an absolute must for this new mummy!

Well... the night light consists of small blue-like bulbs around the outer casing and the brightness is adjustable by a small wheel.

I've removed the lampshade so you can see the difference in low to high.

Thanks to this little bonus, I opted to use my Gro-light in a bedside lamp. I kept the night light low when sleeping and when Finley awoke or I needed to pop to the loo or I just wanted to check on his edible 'lil cheeks, I could just wizz the wheel and have a full night light. It gives great visibility, enough to prevent the main light needing to be switched on but if you did want it on, you just flick your light switch twice for the main light.

For me, this is brilliant.

When Finley makes the transition from mummy's room to his own nursery, I would love to use the Gro-light in the main ceiling fixture. I can't do that in my room at the moment as I wouldn't be able to make use of the adjustable brightness (I can't reach that high up!) But as an all night light, I would keep it on the middle setting. Dark enough for Finley to sleep soundly and light enough for me to see him when I go into his room at night for whatever reason. 


Thanks to www.gro.co.uk I have one of these to give away to one of you lovely lot! What a great prize. I mean, it's really not just for nurseries but also for landings, dark houses, the elderly and as a standard (money-saving) light or lamp.

I have had 7 hou7 hours sleep in the last 3 days - I am dead on my feet ..... she on the other hand is not!!!
