Meet Sleeperhero ... my (I mean Grey's) best friend. Let's just say he is our family's new best friend! Sleeperhero is a doll who is not only designed to help your little one(s) stay in bed at night, but also help them sleep in! He has a light on his chest that changes from red to green. Red meaning "stay in bed" and green meaning "time to wake up."
I love my boy more than anything but he is one of those kids who is up at 6AM and ready to go. I, on the other hand, am not. He also still requires naps daily so I know his body needs more sleep than what he is typically getting by waking up everyday at 6AM.
The first night we used SleeperHero, we explained to Grey that if his chest was red, he was to stay in bed/go to back to sleep but that if it was green, he could get out of bed/wake up. He seemed excited about the idea and also thrilled to have a new friend but ... we still weren't totally sure how it would go.
After a great night's sleep, my husband and I both woke up thinking, "this is too good to be true!"
And that became the start of our love and appreciation for this cute little buddy. We have been using SleeperHero for almost a week and yes, Grey now sleeps in every morning until 7:30-8AM! We can even hear him moving around in the early mornings but then put himself back to sleep when he sees his SleeperHero is still red (we set ours to turn green at 7AM but you can set if for any time).
There is also a book that goes along with the SleeperHero doll that talks about how he helps conquer bedtime fears. Because this isn't a current issue for Grey, we opted out of using the book. But it is a brilliant idea for those kids who struggle with bedtime fears.
We know that you and your kiddos will fall in love with SleeperHero as much as we have! If you have any questions, feel free to ask us in the comments below.
