being MVP: 2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Verilux & Giveaway! #HGG

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Verilux & Giveaway! #HGG









Needless to say that I have been on a sporadic sleep schedule from the arrival of Mason.  I thought we were on a good pattern with him getting up twice a night to feed.  However, due to a cold bug caught from Kenzie and Hubs, he has been coughing, cranky and crying.  This equates to me going to sleep for approximately 2 hours a night and going to work in the morning.  One relief I have had is from the arrival of the Rise & Shine® Natural Wake-Up Light from Verilux. 




At first, I thought I would mainly use it as an alarm clock since my old pink Hello Kitty CD one finally went kaput.  However, this has been my savior these past few weeks.  There is a wake mode which progressively brightens the light prior to waking so no sudden jolts from your sleep.  We also have room darkening curtains in the bedroom which stay closed so this is a fantastic feature.  On the opposite hand is the sleep mode which gradually dims the light over 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes.  I set it on 60 minutes because it does take me quite some time to fall asleep. 







Another feature which the kids love is the four preloaded natural spa soundscapes: Songbird Seranade, Pond Life Harmony, Ocean Rhythms and Streamside Melodies.  My favorite is the Ocean Rhythms and I keep it on all night long.  It gives the white noise that is desperately needed to soothe the kiddos at night.  It also puts me in a relaxed state (well as relaxed as I can get at the moment) before snoozing off.  

I love the snooze feature and while I am still stuck on my phone alarm, I am starting to wean myself off and use the alarm on the Wake-Up Light.  It has dual alarms which is perfect for Hubs who is dead to the world when sleeping.  He wakes early to go to the gym yet when he can't hear the alarm, I am the one who suffers.  The light is also great for feeding at nighttime.  I just press down on the top and it puts a soft glow in the room - just the amount of light for Mason to get his grub on.  Previously, the lamp would click on and off and the one brightness of the lightbulb would bother Mason and Hubs.  The Wake-Up light is set at level 4 brightness which is just the right amount to not fully awake anyone (including me at times) and allow me to point myself right into Mason's mouth rather than his eye.

The Rise & Shine® Natural Wake-Up Light from Verilux is the perfect holiday present for any new mama (or old like me) or anyone in general who would like a pleasant awakening in the morning and calming sleep at night.  The design is clean and the light packs a great load of features. 


Buy It:  You can purchase the Rise & Shine® Natural Wake-Up Light for $99.95 (on sale for $69.95).

  13. Oh I love the Rise & Shine® Natural Sleep System. I have such troubles falling to sleep, insomnia is awful to have. I am such a light sleeper when I do fall asleep so I keep a fan on to drown out noises. I never feel rested and have to live on coffee to get up in the mornings. Would LOVE to have a white noise machine!
