Want to help your baby sleep better? Remember Red Before Bed™ and you’ll be on your way! DreamRed™ technology gently guides your baby to sleep the way Mother Nature intended, with a soft red light. Sleep scientist Dr. Sofia Axelrod, co-developer of the soother, was inspired by Nobel Prize-winning research on the circadian clock and how light affects our ability to fall asleep. Blue light, which is emitted by most nursery nightlights and home lighting, resets our body clock and increases alertness by elevating cortisol, serotonin, and adrenaline levels while also suppressing melatonin. Red light, on the other hand, supports the natural production of melatonin. And that makes it easier for your baby to fall asleep.

The soothing red nightlight can be set to stay on overnight, great for avoiding bright lights that stimulate your baby. Or choose sunset mode which slowly fades to darkness over 30 minutes. The integrated white noise machine provides a calming womb-like environment that masks other sounds for restful sleep. And when baby sleeps, you get to sleep too!

Help your baby sleep like a baby

There’s a lot of info out there on sleep training. Here’s our quick-start guide to helping baby sleep better, featuring three tips from Dr. Axelrod:

  1. Create the right sleep environment. Use red light in a darkened room. Red Before Bed™.
  2. Avoid oversleeping during the day. Make sure naps aren’t too long and bedtime isn’t too early to keep sleep pressure high at night.
  3. When baby is around 3 months old, teach them to self-soothe at night.
