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.

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.

Having twin girls our sleep is very precious! Our girls went from sleeping to 7am to suddenly having night time wakings were they would not settle and waking anytime between 4.30 and 5am! Rather than sitting quietly in their cots, they screamed the house down, ensuring they woke each other and us. We tried everything - no daytime sleep, later bedtime, controlled crying and blackout curtains to accompany our black out blind! We had a miserable few months as this new wake time became the norm.

Then we found Gro-clock. A little unsure if this would work (and wondering if it was worth the expense) but willing to try anything it has once again led us to have a full nights sleep. Our girls, only 2 years old quickly grasped that if the stars were out it was time to stay in their cots and go back to sleep or at least do no shouting! If they woke in the night we had reasoning power - "the stars are still out, its sleep time, you're not coming out until the sun comes up." This quickly had a positive impact on night time waking. With the early waking we gradually increased the sun coming out from 4.50am, to 5.00am, to 5.10am etc.

We are now at 6.20am and they sometimes go past this. If they do wake before the sun they wait quietly and then excitedly shout "mummy, daddy the sun is out wake up time!" It did take a couple of weeks but it was well worth it. I would recommend one for each child if you have two sharing the same room - which we did, so they can each see the stars/sun clearly on their bedside table. I would also point out that even on the lowest light setting they do seem bright, but to be honest after initially worrying about this it has not been an issue.

I had a look at a couple of these clocks that are available, discounting some that were battery powered only, and liked the simplicity of the design : blue moon for sleep time and yellow sun for wake up.

My little girl is nearly 4 and was struggling to stay in bed once it started getting light outside. The first night we used the clock she stayed til the yellow sun showed. Marvellous!

The option to show the time as well as the moon is helpful to adults and would be useful as she gets older, even if it is just digital. The screen brightness can be adjusted so it also makes a good night light. During the night there are little stars around the face that disappear as the time passes so they also have an idea of how long it is til getting up time.

The overall look is a simple clock (no mickey mouse ears!), and there is an audible alarm option too, so can could be used as a normal alarm clock when they get older, assuming it lasts that long. First impressions are that it is of a good build quality, from a known company Gro who make the baby sleeping bags, so would think it should stand up to some use.

I was surprised at the size because the photos make it look a bit of a huge novelty thing but it actually sits on the bedside unobtrusively during the day, and the screen dims to a grey power save mode when its not being used.

The only reason I didn't give it full marks was that the menu and buttons take a bit of getting used to. Its all icons and arrow keys and had me flicking back and forth a few times before I made it do what I wanted, but once that's learned it's a great device and well worth getting.
