The Night Light Story

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...

I'm Maryam, a mother of two sweet daughters, Zara and Maria. As a parent, I've always believed in the magic of a comforting bedtime routine for my little ones. This belief led me and my husband Ali to My Night Light, a venture that began as a simple ritual to soothe our daughter Zara's fears and gently cradle our little Maria to sleep. When the opportunity arose to continue Philippa's legacy, we embraced it with open hearts.

Our journey with My Night Light is deeply personal. It's about understanding the profound impact a gentle, reassuring light can have in the darkness. Philippa continues to be an invaluable mentor and inspiration. Her insights, drawn from years of understanding children's fears and aspirations, guide us in every step.

We affectionately refer to ourselves as the "Night Light Family," because that's exactly what we are - a family. With each night light that leaves our hands, we share a piece of our love and care. Our mission is heartfelt and simple: to spread the warm, reassuring glow of My Night Light across the world.
