Select Night Lights is a big task. Because not everyone needs them. Yes, it’s best to sleep in total darkness, but nobody is going to judge you if you need a little overnight light in (or near) your bedroom. Whether you’re worried about stubbing your toe on the way to the bathroom, getting into bed without disturbing your already-sleeping partner, or legitimately afraid of the dark, there are plenty of perfectly good reasons to have a night light.
But because we know that too much light, or the wrong kind of light, can negatively affect your sleep and your body’s ability to produce melatonin, it’s important to get the right night light. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to narrow the field. We’re doing some of the work for you, below, with our picks for some of the best night night lights for your needs.
