Baby Ceiling Projectors, What Do They Do?
Some simply show a colorful display on the child’s bedroom ceiling. This will give them something to focus on, and it is relaxing….kind of like staring at the waves crashing down on a beach.
The best baby light projectors also have relaxing music, which will also help to get them off to sleep. Honestly, if you are going to get one, then get a baby night light projector with music. You will thank me for it.
Both of these features help to regulate Melatonin, which is the sleep hormone. When you regularly use a baby light projector, it becomes a routine for the child to sleep. The more you use it, the more it works!
Ultimately, you want to create the ultimate baby light show on their ceiling, so they can do nothing BUT gaze at it until their eyes are closed and your life becomes so much more relaxed.
The Best Baby Light Projector – Top 5
The following baby light projectors are in the order that I recommend them. It is also worth noting that these are not just for babies, these can also be used as awesome toddler night light projectors!
SOAIY Sleep Sound Machine
The SOAIY Sleep Sound Machine is a great choice for a baby light projector!
Check this out: Bluetooth speaker, remote control, adjustable brightness and timer, and psychedelic light show!
This is the ultimate Baby ceiling projector.
You have a choice of colors, which are Red, Green, Yellow, and Blue. You also have a choice of in-built relaxing sounds, which are White Noise, Thunder, Brook, Ocean Sounds, Summer Night (not Summer Lovin) and Rain. Don’t like the options? Well….it is a Bluetooth speaker, so just hook up your phone and play whatever you want!
All of this is easily controlled using the remote, and the rotating light show will have them staring at the ceiling for hours.
There is no doubt from me that this baby night light projector with music will help YOU get some sleep too!
Ocean Wave Night Light Projector
The Ocean Wave has some excellent features that make it one of the best choices for a baby ceiling projector!
7 colors, 4 sounds, remote control, 12 bright LED’s, a timer function, and a built-in speaker.
Let’s take a look at the sounds:
Seagulls and Ocean Wave, Forest Insects, Generic Nature, and Flowing Water featuring some Birds. Some very nice, and very relaxing sounds in there. Sure…Seagulls are relaxing to listen to, but just make sure there is no food in the room, I am sure they will go for it!
The built-in speaker is pretty cool, it has a slot for a TF card and you can also hook up your phone to play whatever music you want…..more whatever music your CHILD wants!
The timer option is there too, and you can set the baby light projector to turn off after 1 hour, 2 hours or 4 hours.
With features like these, it is easy to see why the Ocean Wave is a top baby light projector.
SOAIY Soothing Aurora LED
The SOAIY Soothing Aurora LED is very similar to the option in 1st place, although it does have two big differences…..
Built-in speaker – which is not Bluetooth.
No built-in sounds – you have to plug a device in to play music or sounds.
The SOAIY Soothing Aurora LED is a 2-in-1 baby star projector, that acts as both a night light and a star projector.
Like the option in 1st place, you can control is using the remote controller, and you can set the timer to turn the lap off at whichever interval you choose. The choices: 1 hour, 2 hours or 4 hours.
This awesome piece of equipment will help your Baby fall asleep in minutes!
Wood Grain Star Projector Night Light
Wood Grain Star Projector Night Light deserves a place on this list on pure looks alone!
How stylish is a Wood Night Light?? Send them off to sleep in STYLE!
It is actually a 2 in 1 night light. The Wood Grain Star Projector Night Light has an outer casing that when used, creates a simple night light. Removing the cover gives you something very similar to the option below, which is a starry ceiling!
You can put this on a flat surface, or you can also use the hanging strap to hang from a ceiling…..or a tent…wherever!
Light modes: Warm White Light and multiple/single color.
Oh, and it also has a timer feature – nice touch!
There is a USB cable included (please use what is included in the kit, do not use a fast charge plug), but you can also use 4 x AAA batteries to power it.
Baby Star Projector Night Light
This option is available in Blue, Pink or Purple, and it is the Starry Night Light Projector.
Make sure you take off the cover before you use it!
The night light projector projects a night-time starry sky onto a wall or ceiling, creating a relaxing atmosphere that is perfect to send your child to sleep!
It has 3 modes, Warm Light, Colorful Light, and Rotating. The colors are Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green.
You can power this with either the USB cable (please use what is included in the kit, do not use a fast charge plug) or 4 AAA batteries.
Rainbow Night Light Projector
A rainbow night light projector deserves a special mention here.
Ok, so it does not have Bluetooth or music, but displaying a rainbow on your Babies ceiling works wonders if you are trying to get them to sleep.
Sometimes, relaxing music might have the opposite effect on your child and may keep them awake. Settle them down for bed with a wonderful rainbow light show.
Along with a night light projector (with music), I have used one of these in the past. In fact, it is still in my son’s bedroom and now acts as a night light to help him drift off to sleep. He lays in bed, eyes transfixed on the ceiling until they are too heavy to keep open.
It is powered by USB and can even work without it, simply charge the unit up, it only takes 2 hours.
Features To Consider When Buying A Baby Ceiling Projector
There are a number of things you should take into consideration before buying a sleep-inducing light projector:
Where are you going to put it?
Some of the light projectors are dual powered and will take batteries as well as having the ability to be powered by a USB cable. If you choose to go for the USB cable then you will need to ensure you place the light projector in a space close to a wall socket.
I know it sounds obvious, but it is something I forget about ALL of the time!
If power sockets are limited, go for a battery-powered option.
How loud does is the max volume?
As I have previously mentioned in this post, if you want your baby to truly relax then you need a baby night light projector with music.
If the only power socket you have available is far away from the baby, then you will want the ability to increase the volume loud enough so your child can hear the soothing, relaxing sounds.
The SOAIY Sleep Sound Machine has an in-built Bluetooth speaker. This option gives you the ability to control at least some of the volume from your phone.
It is the best baby light projector for a reason!
This is not just down to personal preference. When your child is transfixed on the ceiling, you need to keep them interested, and the changing colors will increase their interest in this fantastic light show!
Having a rotating light project will make the different colors ‘dance’ on the walls and ceiling, creating a relaxing wave of colors that is sure to send your child off to sleep…..and you if you stay in the room long enough! Trust me, I have been there.
So there you have it, my collection of the best baby light projectors! The ultimate baby ceiling projector tool so they can sleep and you can relax!
I have lost count of the times I have been in the position where I will literally do anything to get them to sleep, just so I can capture those precious peaceful hours! Buying a baby light projector was one of the best things I did to improve sleeping.
It comes with a warning though. I got into the habit of laying down with my son to give him reassurance. I would take him to his room, lay him down, switch on the light projector and lay down with him, fantasizing about watching something on TV without interruption. 2 hours later, I woke up.
Do you have any good or bad experiences with any of the light projectors on this page? Do you recommend any others? What about other sleeping aids for your child? Please get in touch, I would love to know about them!
