The Night Light Story

My Night Light Journey

My Night Light started out as an idea in the early hours of the morning amidst the cries of a screaming child. Like any new sleep-deprived parent, I was exhausted and defeated. I was willing to try anything to help my perfect little boy find comfort in the vulnerable hours of the night.

And that’s when it happened. I was gifted something that I never expected would change my life. A simple night light.

This light, with it’s warm and subtle glow turned the dark and still unfamiliar environment into a place of comfort. Somewhere that reminded this brand new human of the womb he had just spent nine months in.  

As he grew up and his sister arrived, the fears grew with them. The line that separated fantasy and reality became blurred. The monsters in their books started to hide beneath their beds and reside in their closets. But once the lights were out, it was that warm glow that kept them away.

This is why I had to start My Night Light. Because as adults we’ve forgotten just how scary the darkness is. We’ve forgotten that we used to cry out for our parents because we couldn’t see anything to remind us of our reality. We’ve forgotten that for most of us, a night light glowed humbly in the corner of our room.

And so, My Night Light was born, out of the shared understanding that darkness is an unspoken fear for little ones. We, as adults, may have forgotten the depths of that fear, but for our children, it's a nightly reality. A night light, humble and unassuming, emerges as their unsung hero.

I started this venture because I recognize the power of a simple, comforting glow. The Duski lights, endorsed by sleep specialists and meeting rigorous safety standards, have become a beacon of reassurance for parents and children alike.

This business is built on a foundation of care and understanding, a place where judgement does not reside. My passion for the safety, comfort and happiness of your children has not waivered since the birth of the business in 2009.

I'm here to guide you and your little ones toward peace and comfort in the heart of darkness. The joy I find is in the heartfelt reviews and tears of relief from our cherished My Night Light community.

With love and dreams as sweet as moonlight,

Continuing the legacy...

In the heartwarming glow of My Night Light's legacy, a new chapter unfolds.

Philippa, the caring founder, has passed the torch to a family bonded by love and fueled by shared dreams.

Ali and Maryam's journey with My Night Light began as a bedtime ritual, a comforting routine to soothe Zara's bedtime fears and cradle Maria into sleep. As parents, they understood the profound impact of a gentle, reassuring light in the dark. With Philippa's wisdom as their guiding star, they embarked on a heartfelt mission to continue the legacy of My Night Light.

Ali and Maryam, stand Khadijah and Shabbir. Raised amidst the soft glows of night lights themselves, they understood the nuances of fear, the comfort of light, and the silent battles children faced in the dark. Their bond as siblings was fortified by the shared responsibility of nurturing younger sisters who were 15 years their junior. Night after night, they whispered stories of bravery and dreams, making sure the younger ones felt safe under the gentle embrace of night lights.

My Night Light isn't just a business; it's a safe place for families. Every night light they make is like a little dream, bringing comfort and joy to children everywhere.

Philippa, continues to inspire and mentor the new guardians of her vision. Her invaluable insights, earned through years of understanding children's fears and dreams, echo through every corner of the business. With Ali and Maryam's wisdom, they design night lights that spark kids' imaginations. Khadijah and Shabbir add a touch of magic, inspired by the stories they shared with their siblings.

They call themselves the "Night Light Family" because that's what they are — a family. With every night light they send out, they send a piece of their love. Their mission is simple: to light up the world with the warm glow of My Night Light. And in that light, they find not just purpose and peace but also the endless magic of dreams, making bedtime a little brighter, one story at a time.
