A baby light projector is the perfect soothing tool in the arsenal of new parents. It can come with a range of additional functionalities aimed at calming down a child and helping them fall asleep effortlessly.
Several baby light projectors on the market stand head and shoulders above the competition. Here are a few of the top picks and the characteristics that make them superior.
SOAIY Christmas Gift Rotation Color Changing Aurora Projection
While this isn’t a strictly nursery product, it’s excellent for soothing babies and toddlers. The SOAIY Christmas Gift Rotation Color Changing Aurora Projection is an absolute best seller due to the excellent price to quality ratio.
The aurora LED night lamp comes with eight distinctive projection modes – red, blue, green and multicolor or a combination of these.
A built-in speaker makes it possible to play soothing music. Just plug into a phone, a computer or a music player for the purpose. Unfortunately, this projector doesn’t come with its own musical selection.
There are several other characteristics worth mentioning, the most prominent ones being automatic shutoff after a set period of time, an adjustable display angle, a USB port, effortless volume adjustments and a removable hemispherical cover. The projector measures 4.72 by 5.31 by 5.71 inches.
Lizber Baby Night Light Moon Star Projector
Lizber Baby Night Light Moon Star Projector is another very popular project but unlike the first one in the list, it’s created specifically for use in a nursery.
Red, green and white lights are used to recreate a soothing night sky on the nursery ceiling. The projector comes with 360-degree rotation, making the visuals turn slowly for an even more appeasing effect.
A removable white dome is available, enabling you to use the machine either as a projector or a nightlight.

Lullaby Light Cube Baby Soother
The final product in the list is the Lullaby Light Cube Baby Soother.
Available in either pink or blue, the projector can be used to project stars on the walls and the ceiling of the nursery. Star projection can continue for up to 40 continuous minutes.
