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.

This product totally works, my son is only 22 mths old, but 5 days later it had completely changed his waking times from 4am to 6am! And 9 days in, he's now consistently waking up between 6.15 - 6.30am. Below is how I did it -

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.

I cannot recommend this light highly enough. We bought it for our daughter last Christmas when she was nearly 3, and I am sure it has given us all hundreds of hours extra sleep over the last year. It took a few nights for her to get used to it (running commentary on the first night!), and we have had the occasional morning when she's come in at 5am insisting it must be broken because it is obviously "wakey-up time". And admitedly she is an owl and not a lark. But I reckon on 29 mornings out of 30, she stays in bed until the sun comes on her clock. Even on Christmas morning. And her body clock is probably now set to wake up at the right time as a result.

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!

Every once in a while the human race manages to discover or invent something that changes the future forever. From the caveman's discovery of fire, through the invention of the wheel, and more recently the invention of the silicon chip, lives were changed for the better and the generations that followed flowered in the wake of greatness. The Gro-Clock Sleep Trainer is one such landmark advancement. This seemingly simple device took just two weeks to train my 23 month old twins to stay in bed and not wake Daddy up at 5am every day. They now happily lay in bed, chatting, playing peekaboo and waiting for the sunshine to show up. For the last week, I've not had to get up before 7.15am. Yep, seven fifteen. This is the best thing I have ever bought. And for £20 too! If I'd known what a difference this would make to my life I would happily have paid ten times that. When my kids have grown up and no longer need this clock, I'm going to build a shrine around it and give thanks to it every day.

This clock is rubbish, when it works its great, but that is when it doesn't decide to turn off in the middle of the night, or just forget to turn to sun in the morning! Oh and no batteries so if there is a power cut in the night it just turns off! And finally extremely simple parent lock so my clever 4 year old figured out that in 2 seconds

Has a mind of its own. My son realised he could just switch it off and on on the wall to reset it for the sun to come up. And sometimes the sun didn't appear when it was meant to. Very hard work. More trouble than it's worth

Bought this for my 2 year old who kept waking at 5am - which is a little too early! Followed the instructions (which were very easy) and also used one of the VERY useful detailed ratings by a lady (thank you very much - apologies for not making a note of who you were) who gave it 5 stars.
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.
