I’ve been doing heaps of nighttime reading lately (mostly self-help baby books), and found myself wishing I had some sort of old-school reading light (remember those geekly little gadgets that would clip onto your book pages, hold your spot, and light up when you opened to that page??). Each night, after brushing my teeth, I head to bed with the intention of finishing another chapter in book #1 so that I can move onto book #2… but you know how it is – you say you’ll be in bed reading by 10:30, but 11:15 rolls around and you’re still in the living room? Anyways, I’m now at the point where I think I’m in the middle of about 5 different books! And since all are read primarily as I’m turning in for the night, I couldn’t help but covet this insanely awesome bed lamp!! Not only can it shelve all 5 of my current reads, but it can hold the place in the one I fall asleep holding (my husband is rather good at removing forlorn books from sleeping clutches), and let there be (reading) light! Genius!!
This light would actually make for a creative and effective bed hack – imagine mounting these lamps to something as simple as the Ikea Malm headboards… Immediate custom made design-y beds! Pretty sweet for readers.
P.S. About those 5 books :)
HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method (Thanks Rachey!!) Very helpful birthing techniques.
Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems (Which is what has me coveting a bedside reading lamp to begin with – Freida has been inhabiting our bedroom at night, and I need to nip this in the bud before baby!)
The Sleep Easy Solution Reading up a bit on sleep scheduling for newborns… after the first two weeks I hope to establish a bit of a eating/sleeping schedule. This book makes it easy as pie!
Eat, Sleep, Poop A common sense guide to your baby’s first year – well-written facts of little lives.
