Question Wiring a Combination NightLight/Outlet

Hi guys,
I'm having a little problem trying to figure out how to wire a Pass & Seymour (TM8HWL-TRWCC)Outlet-Nightlight to an existing bedroom outlet. I would like to remove the existing standard bedroom outlet and replace it with Outlet-Nightlight. However, the Pass & Symour Combo Outlet only has 2 connecting screws, plus the Ground Screw. But the existing outlet that in the wall has 4 screws (2 Black wires and 2 white wires) plus the ground. So, how would I go about and combine the 2 black and 2 white wires into only 2 connecting screws of the new Pass & Seymour combo light. Thanks in advance!
