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.

My 3 year old has not woken us up in the middle of the night since we got it. (Had it about 2 months) If she wakes up now she knows it's not morning time and settles herself back to sleep without shouting for me and crying. She has also always been an early riser (5am ish) I set the clock for 6 and she has slept through every night. Wish I had purchased this a long time ago! I will now be moving it forwards by 15 mins or so every couple of weeks. I also used a reward chart and stickers which I purchased from Amazon which I think is a big factor in the success as each morning she comes running in my bedroom shouting 'the clock is yellow I have won a sticker' great purchase

We bought this clock in desperation. We have a 2 and a half year old and a 5 month old who is still waking at night for feeding. He was waking at 2am and 5am for feeds and then our toddler was getting up at 5.30am every morning. It was absolutely killing us.
I know some clocks existed so looked online and found the glo clock - and bought it because of the reviews. It honestly has changed our lives. Our little boy loves it. We sit and say goodnight to the sun and hello to the moon every night and he knows that he musn't get out of bed before the sun comes up. It took 3 days to work properly as it was a bit of a novelty etc - so you must be firm with them about staying in their bed. (When he got up we just put him straight back into bed and said not to call us until the sun came up - and made a huge fuss of him when he did it right)
The major bonus though- that we weren't expecting is bedtime. He used to go to bed and then potter around his bedroom and we'd have to go up a few times to settle him. But magically- he does not stir once that moon is up! I suppose in his head - he has to stay in bed until the sun goes up. So he in settling to sleep much sooner and getting much more sleep.
We started the sun up at 5.50 and are putting it forward 5 mins every week. We are now at 6.20 and he has been known to sleep through til 7. I think when he wakes at 5 he doesn't bother waking properly when he sees the moon and goes back to sleep. Whereas before he would wake at 5 and jump out of bed straight away.
Only downside is that you are restricted by having to plug it in where they can see it easily. Oh and the story isn't really suitable for 2 year olds. Totally over their heads. Keep it simple with moon means sleep and sun means up.

I bought this a few weeks ago for my 3 year old son who kept getting up ridiculously early, whatever time he had gone to bed. As he has been growing out of daytime sleeps he was getting really tired and bad tempered in the day.
The price nearly put me off but the clock seemed a good design and I decided to give it a try over the holidays. It has worked perfectly. He has enjoyed setting it in the evenings (watching the sun close its eyes and change into the moon) and comes into our room at 7.30am with a beaming smile every morning telling us that the sun has come up. He has always had a night light in his bedroom and this doubles up as that, plus you can alter the brightness.
Setting it up initially was quite straightforward and if you unplug it to move it or to take away on holiday, it retains the settings. The fact that it can also be set to display digital time and has an audio alarm if required means that it will go on to be useful as he gets older.
In summary we are all getting more sleep and are a much happier household!
