Why Do You Have To Keep Your Baby's Room Completely Dark

Darkness helps produce melatonin, the sleepy hormone that will help your baby fall asleep easily and stay asleep.⁣

So keep the room completely dark, invest in a blackout curtain or just use a black rubbish bag to keep the light from coming in.⁣

Does this apply for nap times too?

For newborns probably don’t cause they still may get day and night confusion but for infants, it’s okay to keep it dark during nap times.

What if we turn off all the lights tend to wake up screaming. Does it mean he is afraid of the dark and we should leave a night light on?

Generally, I don’t think our babies are capable of being afraid of darkness. None of my kids are afraid because I have never told them darkness is a scary thing.
