Tip: Cell phone as stand-in travel night light

We frequently do overnights at Grandma & Grandpa’s house, but we often neglect to take a night light.

Solution: mobile phone.

It occurred to me one day as I was leaving my phone charging, powered on, that it emitted enough light to illuminate the room, just barely.

Our son simply cannot go to sleep in total darkness – plus, as a grown up, it helps to see where you’re going when navigating the luggage and toys in the spare room, plus navigate to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Many phones have advanced features, such as being able to power themselves off after a set time (if you only want it while the little ones fall asleep, but not all night), besides doubling as an alarm clock.
