Product Description

Product Description

This unique Autofade bedside light combines a conventional touch sensitive on/off lamp with an ingenious automatic fade function. The light has an instant on/off dimmer or brightener function that reacts to touch, and then also has a programmed fade function, which when activated will gradually dim the lamp to off over a 15 minute period. This means you can leave the light on in baby's room and it will gradually become dimmer over 15 minutes until it's completely off. The gentle dimming effect of the Autofade Bedside Lamp will build your baby's confidence and help them overcome their fear of the dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the must haves. 20 Mar 2009
I bought this nightlight to use with my second child 6 years ago and loved it so much I've just replaced the bulb in order to use it with my third child due in a few weeks. So simple to use: touch sensitive dimmer and on/off switch (because let's face it when you're tired from looking after a newborn you don't need anything gadgety and over complex!)Auto fade function which gradually (and barely noticeably!) fades to off over 15 mins - something I used with my baby as she got older to help her fall asleep on her own. This product fills a need and it is definitely one of those 'must haves' for every nursery. N.B.Although the bulbs do last a while, it comes with only one replacement bulb. After some searching I found that Maplin's sell one that fits; a 25w E14 tube bulb by Orbitec.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good purchase 11 Sep 2008
By mummy
We have used this light every night since our daughter was born eight months ago. It has been great because it can be dimmed very low but just light enough to see into the room to check on her. It is also useful if she does occasionally need feeding or changing as I dont need to brighten the room any further to do this, so getting her back to sleep is a lot easier. It has been left on sometimes for over 15 hours and it is still cool to touch. We even took it on holiday with us as she seems to drift off to sleep so well with it! There is a function to automatically turn it off after 15 mins but I prefer to leave it until she has been alseep for much longer before I do this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only item like it on the market! 8 Nov 2013
By 85kab
Verified Purchase
Other reviews have stated that this lamp feels "cheap" or of poor quality, but that very definitely is not my experience. I first bought one of these lights in 2001 when my eldest son was born. Now, in 2013, after literally every day [night] use, I have finally had to retire it and buy a new one for my youngest.

My original Babytec Autofade has really done me proud, surviving 3 house moves, 2 children, several drops on the floor(!), a punishing everyday use for over 12 years, and in all that time has only needed one replacement bulb! It has now just started playing up so I have replaced it with a brand new one which works perfectly and does exactly "what it says on the tin".

To those reviewers who say it is cheap or low quality, I'd just advise not judging a book by its cover. There is seemingly no other nightlight on the market that offers the flexibility of different settings that this one does, and it is extremely robust despite its light-weight feel. I agree, if you're putting it on a bedside table then it could do with a heavier base; for me personally however, I have never felt that babies/toddlers and mains cords mix well, so ours has always been on a high shelf giving a gentle glow to the room and easy for mum to turn up just bright enough during the night for night feeds, administering cough medicine, Calpol, cuddles, putting the duvet back on, plus numerous other tasks!

Over all, a great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lamp, would highly recommend 9 July 2010
Love this lamp, it is perfect for using when feeding my baby in the middle of the night as you can have it on a really low level. Also great as a bedside lamp for reading as you can set the level of brightness as high or low as you want. Have yet to use the 15 min dimmer but would imagine this may come in useful at some point.

Very simple to operate - just by lightly pressing the 2 little metal buttons you can see on the front. And a perfect size. I couldn't be without it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Light at Night for all 9 Jun 2010
This device was purchased for my elderly parents to assist them at night and has proved invaluable. It does what it says on the tin although like others I found the feed wire could be longer

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 year old son was scared of the dark 19 Mar 2010
After carefully reading the reviews for this lamp I bought one through Amazon, which I received in less than 24 hours!

My son, aged 4 has suddlenly become afraid of the dark, so much so that he would ony settle with the main light on in his bedroom, otherwise he was petrified. I was very reluctant to let him continue this as I didn't think it would benefit him in the long run. I spent hours surfing the net to try and find a product that would suit his situation. The usual plug in night lights were too dim and normal lamps were too bright. This light was perfect. I introduced it to him during the day. We closed the curtains and played in his room whilst it was on full. He settled straight away with it on full that night. Over the days/weeks I have gradually dimmed the light. It's now nearly on the lowest setting and he's settling fine.
I am very happy with my purchase and would definately reccommend it to anyone who is in the same situation. My only tip would be to buy surplus bulbs. I took our light on holiday with us to Northumberland. When we got there and plugged the lamp in, the bulb blew. I have since bought a stock of bulbs, which I bought for 75p each.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product for all Breastfeeding mums !!! 8 Oct 2009
Bought this lamp to breastfeed my baby at nightime, it is a good product & the dimmer setting with a timer is good although it dosent dim over 15 mins if its on low light , more like 3 mins !!!
It is easy to turn off/on when half asleep thanks to the little touch sensitve controls, I would say this is a must have & will use it in my babies room in the future yrs.
