Since the time has changed in October, Matthew is more of a person who gets up anytime between 6.30am and 7am. Prior to that he used to sleep in until 8.30am, so that goes to show that the time change did effect him after all. Her sister is more of a laid back baby and likes to sleep as long as 8am sometimes. This why I like to get Matthew to go back to sleeping a bit longer which means it gives mummy and daddy a bit of a lie in, too.
Matthew is at a great age now where he understands what daytime and nighttime means and has a great understanding of what’s going on. He understands when it’s dark, when “the sun is out” and when the “moon is up in the sky”. With the Gro Clock it is even simpler to get him to stay in bed until you see the sun on the clock.
The Gro Clock has been updated to a new feature where parents can decide whether they want to display the digital time or not. This is a great way for older children to learn the time at the same time.
– Glowing screen shows images of stars and sun to communicate ‘sleep’ and ‘wake-up’ time
– Includes fun bedtime story book
– Stars go out one-by-one during the night to show the passing of time
– Key-lock option
– Option to set two separate wake-up times (weekday/weekend or night-time/day-time nap)
– Adjustable screen brightness
– Silent operation
– Optional audible alarm feature
– Mains powered (adapter included)
– Suitable from age 2+ years
– Conforms to highest applicable British and European Standards
– Educational option of showing digital clock during the ‘stars to sun’ countdown
As mentioned above, the Gro Clock also comes with a beautifully illustrated story book to encourage children to stay in bed longer. It’s called Sleepy Farm. We are in the process of reading this to Matthew every night along with the other 2 books he gets read to. So hopefully within a week he will understand and we are getting our little sleep in at the weekend. (That all depends on the little lady that morning too of course)
Praising your child is always important. So why not download this reward chart when you are in the process of introducing the Gro Clock.
