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.

We decided to buy this little sleep trainer for our daughter's room. We haven't gotten the extra sleep we had hoped for just yet (2 weeks on) but we haven't given up hope just yet.

The clock itself is of reasonable build quality. The screen of the clock is slightly hard to read on very sunny days even at full brightness. We found we had to turn the brightness of the unit down as it far too bright to use as a nightlight in the evening. You also find yourself having to point the clock away form the childs bed, and this defeats the purpose of the clock somewhat.

The controls for programming the clock are fiddly and ~I would advise you to set the clock up away from the intended target (unlike me where she demanded to know where the stars and sun were, which, no doubt hampered my attempts to decypher the manual)

you set the time you want the "Sun" to come up in the morning, and that's pretty much it. The clock itself comes with a book - sleepytime farm, that you can read, which explains why a pig on the farm is too grumpy - he gets up too early. The other animals get him Gro-clock, which my daughter loved. Once the story is complete, you press a button on the clock and the "sun" winks at you and changes into a "star" whicle the accompanying light turns from yellow to blue. Stars around the outside count down to "sunrise" - possibly so slightly older children can tell roughly what the time is if they wake up in the middle of the night.

The problem for us is that sometimes my daughter happily stays in bed until 0900, sometimes she wakes at 0700. So when I set the clock for 0800 we gain anhour some morning and lose one others!

We read some good reviews on this clock so decided to give it a try as our just turned 2 year old had been getting out of bed since moving into a big bed, purely because she could get out. The early rising had re-set her body clock and asking her to stay in bed until it gets light does not work in the summer months!
We set it up, read the book which is a good idea and she understood that she should stay in bed until the 'sun' came out.
Before going to bed we let her push to button and say goodbye to 'Mr Sunshine' and watch the stars come out, this has become her kind of trigger that it really is bedtime.
However it has taken her 6 weeks to stop getting out of bed, not because she didn't understand, just because she wanted to get out of bed. When she came into our room I would ask her if 'Mr Sunshine' was up, she would reply 'Noooooo' and grin!!!! So put her back to bed, and so on for the last 6 weeks. Finally last night she stayed put until the sun came up. She called out "Mr Sunshine! Time to get up Mummy!"
So yes I agree it does work, you just need to your child to comply with the rules!

I think this clock will be invaluable during the summer months, when young children that cannot tell the time may be tempted to get out of bed as soon as it's light.
It will last beyond toddler years as well as it becomes a proper alarm clock when required.
If you don't want too much light in your child's room you need to turn the brightness right down to the lowest setting.
I would recommend this clock for young children as long as they can comprehend the concept of stars mean sleep and sun means time to get up.
