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.

This is the first time I have felt a need to write a review. I bought this for my 2yrs 4mths old little girl, and it works a wonder! She doesn't sleep well at night, and although this clock hasn't helped her sleep through the night, it has helped her stay in bed longer in the mornings - which is the purpose of this clock. I tell her that when there is a star, she has to keep quiet and stay in bed. And only when she sees the sun, can she get up and that it is morning time. It's a simple concept, but it really does work and keeps her in bed! I can now stay in bed that little bit longer. I did think about getting one of those cheaper sleep trainers that have a picture which rotates and turna from day to night, but I did my research and there were lots of complaints saying that the whirring noise of the picture changing woke their child up. This clock is silent because the pictures are on the LCD screen. It is mains powered which means it can also be used as a nightlight. With battery powered ones, you can't really expect to have a night light. It also has an LCD clock which is handy. Sleep is priceless. Buy it! You won't be able to thank it enough!

As with most purchasers, we bought this in order to instil some kind of morning routine for our two year old (rather than random wakings any time between 5:30 and 7).

After about three weeks, I have to say that things are going very well.

- She loves the "Sleepy Farm" story that came with the clock; this has become a firm part of the bedtime routine, with our daughter pressing the button to say goodnight to the Sun.

- We introduced the clock in conjunction with a move to a "proper" cot-bed, so rather than sitting in the cot crying, she's now able to get out of bed and wake us up in the morning. This has worked well, though; she's now firmly in the habit of waiting until the Sun comes up on the clock before bothering us.

- As with some other parents, we've been able to slowly move waking up time from 6:30 to, currently, 6:45. We've gone slowly in 1 or 2 minute increments each day and haven't had any major complaints from our daughter. Hopefully we'll be able to move her to 7am over the next few weeks!

The only complaint is that even on setting 1 (of 10) the stars are quite bright. If your child can't handle a nightlight, then you may have trouble. For us, though, this has been fine.

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!
