Twinderelmo Blog Birthday – Last Day

It’s the last of our birthday giveaways here on Twinderelmo and we are going out in style!     IMG_5192

If you follow me on Twitter it’s no secret that my girls have been getting us up at 5am so when we were offered to test out the Gro-Clock it was music to my ears. My friend had one with her daughter and absolutely raved about it!

It’s just any clock, the Gro-Clock helps children to understand and recognise the difference between what is sleep time and what is getting up time using different colours and pictures.

When they get older, it can be set as a  digital clock which will help as they learn the time and will also act as a nightlight with the sun and star image.

To use the clock you set the wake up time (we opted for 6am as I can bear 6am; 5am is a killer) and before that time the blue stars will shine. This means it is time for sleeping. When it gets to the wake up time you have chosen, the display will change to a yellow sun, meaning it is time to get up so it is handy that it runs with the day and night theme.

I would say that if your child is used to getting up at 6am, don’t jump the gun and set the clock for 8am and expect them to magically sleep in for an extra 2 hours – if only eh?. I would say to make it a gradual change and increasing wake up time by 10-15 minutes every few days.

We have been using the Gro-Clock for a couple of weeks now, and it has become an integral part of our bedtime routine.The Gro-Clock comes with a handy little book called ‘Sleepy Farm’ which includes the Gro-Clock and gently explains the difference between night and day – and as soon as the clock display changes to the blue star the girls know it is time to settle down for sleeping which they are good at doing.

The first night it was a complete novelty and actually kept them awake! This girls are really good at going to bed; it’s the early starts that are our issue. They don’t have a nightlight so it took a few nights for them to adjust to the clock in their room.

As for the mornings, again it has been a slow process, not helped by them being poorly all last week. We had started to gradually increasing the time we expect th to stay in bed and we did managed to get a couple of  6am starts which was amazing and I was really impressed with the progress in a just a couple of weeks.

Sadly they were poorly all last week so routine has pretty much gone out the window but last night was better so I’m hoping to reintroduce it again this week to get back to our 11 hour sleeps.

This Gro-Clock is suitable from 2+ (my girls are 2 and 5 months) but I would say that if they are a bit older it would make it a quicker process as the girls took a while to fully grasp the concept but it definitely worked and I can’t wait to start using it again.

    The Gro Company make some fabulous products that make life as a parent easier (not easy, being a parent is never easy). My little ones have always kicked off their duvets in the night so the Grobag baby sleep bags are fabulous and ensure my children stay warm during the night, especially in winter, also they are not just for babies, the Grobags are suitable for children up to the age of 6 years, wow! I just wish they did an adult version.
