A fluorescent bulb, which burns a month for 2 1/2 cents worth of electricity, glows too subtly to disturb even the lightest-sleeping infant, making it ideal for home nurseries.
Developed by the Westinghouse Lamp Division, the walnut-size globe will be available in two colors, pastel green and white.
Because it is so inexpensive to operate, the lamp likely will be burned night and day and will serve as a marker for stairsteps and bedposts.
