Whether you’re up at night feeding a baby, convincing your toddler no monsters are lurking in the closet, or making sure your child can go to the bathroom without waking you—a night-light is essential. Some of the best night-lights include soothing extras like sleep sounds or help with bedtime training. Kids who tend to get up in the middle of the night need a portable light, and app control lets you turn night-lights down or off remotely without waking your wee ones. These are our favorites.
