The Gro-Clock Sleep Trainer
Promoting a healthy sleep routine
We all expect to miss sleep when babies are young, but once they become toddlers most parents would like to start getting them into a healthy sleep routine. A child that sleeps well means the whole family is happier and more energised each day.
Praised by parents around the world
The Gro-Clock is used around the world with great success to train toddlers to stay in bed until the time the parents desire. It's much more than just a clock – it's a whole sleep system. Starting with bedtime, the parent reads the specially written 'Sleepy Farm' book (included) and explains that the child should look at the clock to see all the stars in the sky around the moon.
A perfect night's sleep
If the child wakes in the night, they simply glance at the clock to know what to do: if there are stars showing, they should lie down and relax as it's not time to get up yet, and the stars will keep them company. As the stars count down, they know it is almost time, and then with a big smile the sun arrives on the screen to signal that it is time to go and see mum and dad.
Features and benefits of the Gro-Clock
Two wake-up times
The Gro-Clock has two wake-up times so you can set one for the morning and one for afternoon naps.
The brightness on the Gro-Clock can be adjusted to suit your child's preferences, which will change as they age.
The Gro-Clock helps your child adjust when the clocks change forwards or backwards.
Bedtime book included
Included with the Gro-Clock is 'Sleepy Farm', a bedtime book to read your child to help them to sleep.User Guide

My 22 mth old son has always been a bit of a challenging sleeper, but recently it was just getting ridiculous. 4am starts told me that something needed to be done (not least of all because my husband was away, so I was doing all the early morning starts!) Anyway, I invested in a groclock after a friend recommended one. I have to say, I was a bit dubious, my son is only 22 mths old, and I wondered if he'd actually understand what was going on.
The first day I got it, we read the accompanying book a couple of times, then I spent 3 x 5min sessions with him running through the demo mode, so we saw the sun wink (bye bye Mr Sun!) and turn into the star (Night night! Sleeping time! - we pretended to go to sleep) then into the sun again (Morning Mr Sun! Get up! Get up! - we leapt up and danced around). We did this until it seemed like he understood what was going on. I ambitiously set the sun to come up at 6am, and waited to see how it would go.
Anyway, needless to say, day 1 he woke up at 4am, I went into his room, sat with him, and just kept saying, no, sleeping time, we need to wait until the sun gets up (I'd put some toys in his cot for him to play with, and I encouraged him to do so). After an hour of this, he was beginning to lose the plot, so I subtly changed the clock to the sun, and waited for him to notice. When he did, I made a HUGE fuss of him - yes, yes clever boy, it IS the sun. Let's get up!!
Day 2, woke up at 4.10am.Read more ›
In terms of setting it, it's not the most straightforward but to be frank it's no more complicated than the average mobile. We use the "nap" setting to give us all an extra half an hour in bed at weekends :-) which works nicely! She can set the clock herself now (once I have set up the default times) - I didn't show her this so presumably there has been some experimenting at some point! It has a key lock if necessary, which she finds very frustrating :-)
It is fairly bright - similar in intensity to the gro-egg thermometer if you have one. We have them both on a bookcase at the other end of the bed, the light doesn't bother her at all. Most children prefer it not to be pitch black anyway.
Hope the clock helps you as much as it helps us!
My son gradually learnt to use it (probably took 4-5 days) properly and after I'd put the clock back further each day, he stayed in bed longer each day. He now gets up around 7, which is a much more reasonable time for a 2 year old to wake up.
2 points to note: Yes, I agree with the other people when they say that it does need battery backup - this would be a very useful thing to add and I would have provided 5 stars if it had it.
2nd point - to those people who say that it is difficult to set the time....... please stay indoors and close the curtains, DO NOT GO OUTSIDE and please get someone to remove all sharp objects in your house - this is a VERY simple clock to set (for both the clock time and the waking time for afternoon nap and morning) and if you can't follow some easy instructions, you probably shouldn't be using a computer - you may well be a danger to yourself.

Fantastic product, our 22 month old daughter has slept in her own cot for the last four nights!!!!!!!!Published 18 hours ago by Amazon Customer
This is an excellent sleep trainer. My son loves announcing that it's time to wake up when the sun rises & very quickly got the message that he has to stay in bed until that point. Read morePublished 21 hours ago by Pickles88
Didnt work for us it might for others. We decided on no night light in the end as your just creating more issues to deal with further down the line. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Dragonwight
Easy to use, little lad likes it, book good. Shame my lad still looks out the window to see if the sun is up rather than at his clock!Published 1 day ago by Lucy2Linda
Perfect & works wonders with our toddler! They should only make a sort 'childs-lock' on it as unfortunately he knows just how to work the clock himself which resets all times... Read morePublished 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
