Since we are the topic of sleeping, I think this is a great time to feature this next business!
We have a three year old that does not stay in bed all night long. Does that sound familiar to any of you readers? It never fails that half the way through the night, Payton comes searching us out to crawl into our bed and invade our personal space. LOL! It wouldn't be so bad, but she's a barrel roller and she loves to have her hands, feet and other parts all over me and my husband while we sleep. This makes for a very non-restful night's sleep for both of us parents and I know she can't be sleeping well either. She has also been fighting off her afternoon naps and this product that I am going to tell you about will work wonders for both...http://www.mytotclock.com/
I was first introduced to MY TOT CLOCK by a mommy business owner who was having trouble with her own daughter sleeping. She purchased this clock as a means to save her sanity and hopefully help her get a good nights sleep.
White Dove Innovations has given our family the chance to review the MY TOT CLOCK for ourselves. The first day it arrived, we tried it out for nap time. I got it all set up (my kids sleep on our couch and chair in the living room for naptime, so I can keep an eye on them) for Payton for naptime. She has been fighting nap time for about 4 months now. She really still needs a nap, but she fights it. The MY TOT CLOCK lights up certain colors for certain times. When the clock is blue, it's time to sleep. I explained this to Payton and told her that when the clock turned yellow, she could get up from nap time. Wanna know what happened? She actually took a nap!
One of the features that the MY TOT CLOCK offers is a bedtime story, music and white noise while the child is sleeping (which also helps put them back to sleep if they wake up in the middle of the night). So I got the girls all tucked into bed and turned on the MY TOT CLOCK. The story started (you can buy different story cartridges that tell different fairytales and play different music) and the girls got quiet and cozy. I am very pleased to announce that by the time the white noise had started...both girls were sound asleep, snoring in their beds. OH HAPPY DAYS!!
I Love the MY TOT CLOCK! LOVE IT!!
The first night we tried it out...Payton stayed in bed all night long...was it a miracle? Nope...I think she was just comforted by the noise, she saw that the light hadn't turned yellow (so she wasn't allowed out of bed) and the MY TOT CLOCK did it's job. Totally worth every cent invested...because I got a lot more sleep in my bed, without someone's feet in my face and arm across my chest. Every night since, we have had wonderful results (with the exception of a few pee pee accidents).
I have to tell you...my seven year old son is jealous that he doesn't have a MY TOT CLOCK in his room for bedtime. He wants to hear the stories, the music and the white noise too. LOL!!
The MY TOT CLOCK can also be personalized by purchasing additional stories (like I mentioned before) and faceplates for the front of the clock. This is a great way to help your child establish ownership with their MY TOT CLOCK. It also keeps things fun and interesting for your child.
