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.

The best way, we could think of, to show just how effective this sleep trainer can be is to summarise our situation and say how it worked for us. Hopefully then others, who have the same child sleep issues, will be able to decide if the unit is something to try for them also.

We thought we had it nailed with, Little Savvy, our first-born. He was sleeping in ever more lengthy patterns at night by the end of his first 6 months. Then, by 9 months, he had moved to his nursery and was consistently sleeping through from 7pm to around 5:30/6am. The next year and a half passed with the same pattern, even with house moves and sleep overs at the grandparents. But then, with the arrival of our second child, and the moving of bedroom and upgrading of bed, he started waking more during the night.

Things really changed after a week's holiday away where he obviously got over excited and didn't want to go to bed in the evenings. On our return home, he was waking 3-6 times each night. He'd settle again quickly, but then wake again and again asking for random things. To be clear he was controlled but finding new "ways" to get us to go in to see him. Now we could have left him to see if he re-settled, in fact sometimes we did, but overall the fact that he'd wake the newborn if he carried on meant we had to try and re-settle him.

Months passed, we became more tired, and we started to worry he was developing a habit. So we decided to switch tactics, this is what we did, and IT WORKED!

Our little one, now 3 years old, has always loved magical things. So we bought the Gro-Clock and a wooden treasure chest, the reason for the chest will be become apparent.

The Gro-Clock arrived and was plugged in and up an running within minutes.

Great idea and works well. I struggled to figure out the settings because I am a man and don't read the instructions. My wife had it sussed in 10 minutes though. The hardest part is trying to keep your toddler in bed until the "sun" comes out on the clock. I would advise putting this out of reach somewhere i.e. on a cupboard or high shelf. My son started getting up too early and pressing the buttons until the sun came out, cheeky ittle blighter.

I'd love to give this 5 stars because it's so cute, brilliant idea, great as a night light and the sweet little story that comes with it is great.

However.... It is currently 9.14pm and I've been sitting by my 27 month old son's bed since 7.45. He's cried, he's laughed, his wanted to hold my hand, cuddle my belly (he's obsessed) he's jumped about, he's shouted "baby crying" to alert me to the fact that his shouting has once again woken his 5 month old brother. He's then decided he'd like to start breastfeeding again, just because the baby is. I am exhausted.

And the cute blue stars, and the sweet little story just are not enough to make this child sleep. I'm not sure anything is... Infact, sometimes I'm not even sure this child is human!! It's been 27 months for God sake. 27 months of sleepless nights. Why I thought it'd be a good idea to have another baby in the middle of all this I don't know....

But anyway. The clock is brilliant. Maybe a bit better for ages 3+, or children who are actually human and need sleep to function... I do love the idea and it looks great.
