I can understand why kids are afraid of the dark. It’s only natural to get scared when you’re alone in your room and it’s too dark to see. What’s under the bed? In the closet? And when did that doll start to look so creepy?
If your child isn’t comfortable sleeping in complete darkness just yet, try one of these night lights that will add just enough light to make the room less scary. Even better, they look great in the daylight, too.
The contemporary Candela Roomi Nightlight ($31) by OXO will look great in a modern bedroom or nursery.
The Birdie Nightlight ($19) from Pottery Barn Kids will coordinate well with most little girls’ rooms. I love the polka-dots!
The Zoom Night Light ($26) is cordless and rechargeable, which makes it perfect for rooms that don’t have a convenient outlet near your child’s bed.
Munchkin’s portable night light ($23) is also chargeable and available in several colors.
