i'm thinking about buying one of those alarm clocks that supposed to help get kids to sleep a bit later.

what's avaiable and can anyone give an opinion on their own experiences
good or bad.

don't wanna spend more money on something which is just another piece of random junk to break or not really get used.

I didnt buy a special clock. I put fluffy fairy lights on a timer and progressively set them to come on later and later. DD went from coming through at 6am to 7am which was a bit more manageable. She now has a digital alrm clock and can come through when it says 7:00.

The rabbit ones with the ears are a bit flimsy. Plus in winter they can't see them (assuming you've not set it for 8.30am or something). Waste of money. Better as Seona says to get a timer switch and attach it to a lamp or set of lights and slowly bring it forward. Much better.

Rabbit one never worked and my son broke its ears pretty quickly.

thanks for response.

glad i didn't just go and buy one. that sleepyimes and kidsleep had good reviews 2 on review centre websites.


could have been £35 quid down the drain
