“Bedtime at our house can often times be a huge, stressful mess,” shared Janine of Six Time Mommy. “One kid wants the light on in the hallway, the others complain it’s too bright…WHEN WILL IT END? In comes the ORBit Relaxation Lamp! With its calm, soothing lights, this lamp has quickly taken the place of a bathroom light left on and opened up a whole new, smoother bedtime.”
Janine also added, “Ava who usually has a really hard time falling asleep at night and tends to keep Kyla awake (they share a room and bunk beds) was fast asleep within 10 minutes. It was a pure bliss to not have to deal with getting them to be quiet so the other kids could sleep, but also so they could get some rest!”Marysa from A Nation of Moms also found the ORBit to be a seamless and helpful addition to bedtime at her house. “My daughter just turned 5, but still can have her share of issues falling asleep on her own…This light has been a great tool in helping her fall asleep. Like clockwork, she turns the light on at bedtime. There is something soothing and calming about this light and she is able to lay in her bed and relax with the light on. I think sometimes it is hard to wind down when you have a lot of distracting thoughts, and the lamp serves as its own distraction. I think my daughter finds it mesmerizing!”
An additional benefit of the ORBit is its white light setting. “Surprisingly, this is also great in the morning (or the middle of the night) when I go in my daughter’s room so that I don’t have to turn on the main light,” added Marysa. “We have blackout curtains in our bedrooms. The white light is gentle enough to wake up to without being blinding.”
When many people think about using light to enhance mood, they think of lights that help increase energy. However, as these moms know, it is also really helpful for relaxation. The ORBit transitions through a calming array of hues of the three primary colors or, with its crisp, Natural Spectrum® white illumination, it is also a convenient, mini-lantern in places where you need some extra light.
Stephanie of Mom Among Chaos immediately appreciated the ORBit’s dual use. “My 12 year old daughter has problems falling asleep at night. The ORBit light is soft and relaxing. The next morning my daughter was using the natural light setting to apply her makeup.”
