The clever sleep trainer clock is a baby sleep aid that shows your little one when it's time to stay in bed and when they can come and wake you by using simple colours and symbols. Simple to understand even when they're too young to be able to tell the time. You can control everything from a clever app on your phone or manually on the clock itself. You can set alarms for sleep and naps, change sounds and music and even dim the clock face for sleep time, all without getting up off your sofa (or out of bed).

How did this product make your life easier?

Eilidh said: "Starting to get the concept of day and night and improving sleep makes a huge difference to the quality of my day. Really useful product."

Genevieve: "It has encouraged my child to stay in bed longer in the morning and not to cry out for us so much if the clock is still red. We set it to red for night mode and we say each night when tucking her in ‘if the clock’s still red, don’t call from bed!’ She likes this and has really engaged with the concept. The lullaby setting helps calm her in bed before she falls off to sleep, which has cut down our bedtime routine time and allows us to get making dinner sooner!"

Carly said: "I love this product because it has enhanced our current sleep routine, adding a new dimension of self management and ownership for my toddler, but still being able to be controlled by me as a parent. I introduced this to him at 2 1/2yrs and its felt to be the right time for us."

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Louise said: "The Connected Sleep Trainer Clock is a great idea – simple to use and set up, but with lots of functionality and flexibility which is easy to manage. From controlling the clock with the app, changing the brightness settings, selecting the soothing sounds to setting alarms – lots of useful functionality, but crucially not too overwhelming for a busy and sleep-deprived parent!"

Kelly said: "We have been struggling with nap time and bedtime with our two-year-old - she was also waking up very early. Since we have started using this clock, it has improved greatly. She knows that when the light on the clock is green, it is time to wake up and when the clock is red, it sleeping time. The adjustable light is a great feature, so it is not too bright when our daughter is sleeping but gets brighter when it is time to wake up. She is now better with nap times as it helps her to know when it is time to sleep and wake, along with the music, which she loves. Overall, our daughter loves her new light/clock."

Louise said: "I found that the Connected Sleep Trainer Clock is a great tool to empower my toddler with an understanding of when it's time to wake up and when it's to rest in bed. And so far, so good. She loves that she knows when it's morning time and waits patiently for the clock face colour to change. It's also a great tool to support the bedtime routine and was very easy to use."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Carly said: "The fact that the product can connect to and be controlled by your phone provides flexibility and ease of use. Plus, being able to play tunes to settle without having to go into the room is a real benefit."

Genevieve said: "I love that this product connects to my phone so I can manage it remotely without waking my toddler. It is much easier to take it away as you can reset it easily from your phone."

Kelly said: "This product does seem very different to anything else on the market. I love the fact that we can control the clock with our phones. It saves having to go to the clock and potentially disturb our daughter. The lullabies are great: there is a choice of 10 different sounds - this helps to relax our daughter and get her ready for sleep time. The ability to use our phone via the app is great; we can change everything from the lullabies to the colours and the brightness. I don't recall seeing anything else like this on the market, and I have recommended it to many of my friends and family. It has made naps and bedtimes much easier, as well as setting the morning light so that it changes colour, this then means our little one knows when to wake up or to keep sleeping. We tend to change the colour to green when it is time to wake up."

What changes would you make to this product?

Louise said: "It’s difficult to find a fault with the Connected Sleep Trainer Clock. The clock is very easy to set up with great functionality. The only thing I can think of is whether it would be possible/beneficial to incorporate some gradual light therapy into the clock so that the light gradually increases in the morning to support the child waking up, feeling extra refreshed."

Eilidh said: "It would be nice to be able to control the device more without your phone as well, in case it's in another room. The design is not particularly appealing either."

Kelly said: "I would change the lead to a proper lead and plug rather than a USB lead. However, this is not a problem for us but for others it may be. It would also be good if the picture on the clock changes, the bear is great and our little one loves it, but would be great if more animals were available."
