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 for Sleep Training

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. Gro-Clock Sleep Trainer Clock

Sleep Trainer Clock

The Glo-Clock Sleep Trainer clock has a pleasant glow of light – not to bright and the concept is unique. The stars disappear over the night, so when your child wakes up in the night, they instantly know how long they have until morning by how many stars are left. 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.

    My son has a nice nightlight/clock that glows blue when it’s time to sleep and yellow when it’s time to get up. Unfortunately even on dim mode, it’s quite bright in his room. I’m worried that this artificial blue light is causing him to take longer and longer to go to sleep at night.

    Read about blue light and melatonin levels before buying a light like this for your child’s room:

    Wow, that’s really amazing clock designs for children. For kids older than 2 years a visual toddler alarm clock can help early bird babies sleep longer. I am still using a toddler alarm clock in my daughters room.
