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.

Great concept, great product, good quality and it has (mostly) done the trick with our two year old. We have the odd few mornings that are a set back but nothing major.

I would like to give this product 5 stars as for the most part, I think it is great but for a few minor irritations...
1. The very bright blue night light. This could do with some sort of dimmer for children that don't really require a light that bright. I understand that a light is required so that the child can see (if they wake in the night) that it is still night time BUT - seriously, when I walk past my daughters closed bedroom door, it looks like a spaceship could be landing in her bedroom. It is very bright and whilst it doesn't seem to bother my daughter, it does bother me that she insists on having it so close to her head/eyes.
2. No sun, no stars. The clock goes into a sleep mode in the day time and everything goes off apart from a small digital clock. I'm all for conserving energy but this does confuse my toddler when we go up to her bedroom a few hours after waking and the sun has disappeared. Stars mean it's sleep time, Sun means it's day time - what does it mean when there's NOTHING? She frantically presses button until the sun comes back onto the screen and then the panic is over. I would say this can be confusing to a two year old and perhaps an option to keep the sun on (maybe in a dimmer form) would be beneficial.

I would definitely recommend this but I hope they make some improvements in the future with a bit more customisation.

I cannot rate this highly enough. When my kids starting getting up and 5am (used to get up at 7am) I was getting so frustrated as my exhaustion got worse and worse.

At 2 yrs old and 4 yrs old they just weren't old enough for the concept of staying in bed until the little hand was pointing at the 7.

Here's where the Gro-Clock comes in. A child that's not old enough to tell the time, can still understand a Gro-Clock perfectly.

It's easy to setup. You just set the actual time, and then set the time that you want your child to get up at. When it's bedtime, you press the buttons, and the clock changes from a picture of a Yellow Sun, to a picture of a Blue Star. The Blue Star means it sleep time, the Yellow Sun means it's Wake Up time.

In the morning, at the time set by the parent (7am here) the clock changes from the Blue Start, back into the Yellow Sun, so your child knows it's time to get up.

Obviously you have to explain this to the child and it takes a little while to start working. We did it a bit at a time. Setting a wake up time of 5:30 for a week, then 6:00, then 6:30, until we hit 7:00. We also used sticker charts as a reward. Every time the child waits for Mr Sun, they get a sticker to put on their chart. After 5 stickers they get a little treat.

It's worked amazingly well. After a few weeks we have happy parents. More importantly we also have much happier kids because they're getting a decent amount of sleep. They're more active, more engaged at home and at school, and better behaved, presumably because they're a lot less tired and grumpy.

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!
