Sleep training your toddler? Check out these toddler alarm clocks that will help a child who can’t tell time understand when it’s okay to get ouf of bed. Parenting toddlers is all kinds of crazy, if they get a little more sleep – that will give mom and dad more sleep as well!
Here is a round up of the best toddler alarm clocks. I survived the toddler years with our 2 older kids and am now going through it now with another 2 toddlers! You can survive these years (at least, I hope – these last 2 are quite challenging.) It’s all about finding things that work for you. One of the hardest challenges when I had to get the kids to child care and we had a strict morning routine was finding a kid friendly alarm clock. I have had many friends recommend these and am glad to share these here. I hope they work well as you sleep train your toddler.
Toddler Alarm Clocks & Sleep Training Clocks
As you transition your toddler from the crib to a big boy bed (or big girl bed), it’s time to introduce the alarm clock. Here is a fabulous assortment of the best toddler alarm clocks that have different functions to help with sleep training. Some toddler clocks even have a time out timer. Find what works best for your child!
1. Okay to Wake Alarm Clock

2. Gro-Clock Sleep Trainer Clock
The Glo-Clock Sleep Trainer clock has a pleasant glow of light – not to bright and the concept is unique.

In the morning, at the designated time, the last star and the big star disappear, and the sun comes out as the face color changes to yellow. The kids know they are allowed to get up when the sun comes up.
