Did you get up feeding the baby at night, reassuring the baby that there are no monsters hiding in the closet, or making sure that the baby can go to the bathroom without waking you – a night light is necessary. Some of the best night lights include soothing additions like sleep sounds or help with bedtime study. Kids who tend to get up in the middle of the night need a portable light, and app control allows you to turn the nightlights on or off remotely without waking the little ones. These are our favourites.
