Once you become a parent, bedtime turns to pure happiness – your little one becomes a sleeping cherub, the world goes still, and you all have much-needed rest. Or at least that’s what you dream of! The reality: During the first year, he will be in and out of nursery several times a night to feed and change his baby. And later on, coughs and colds, nightmares, and potty training will mean little kids wake up in the middle of the night.

A night light is essential for pre-dawn activity. (Trust us, at 2 a.m., the ceiling lights will look like the surface of the sun.) A night light provides enough brightness for changing diapers or feeding your baby, but is gentle on blurry eyes. The dim light also keeps you and your child in sleep mode. And for young children, who struggle to go to bed like it’s their job, a night light alleviates the fear of the dark. Here are the night lights that we think are worth waking up to.
