My six year old son has been terrified of sleeping in the dark and usually ends up on our couch or in bed with us during the middle of the night. We have tried many different solutions yet nothing has worked until we recently started using the SleepBuddy.
What is the SleepBuddy™? This sleep system is designed to “help parents and caregivers teach healthy sleep habits to children ages 18 months to 6 years old. SleepBuddy is ideal for use with children who are still sleeping in a crib and moving to a bed within 1-2 months, currently transitioning from crib to bed or have already made the move but are not staying in bed through the night.”
After learning more about the SleepBuddy™, I was optimistic that this would work with our young son. I presented the gift wrapped box to my son and he was so excited to open it up to see what was inside. My husband and I explained to him that it was a sleep buddy that would help him stay in his bed at night. He was immediately interested in trying it out and so we placed the soft blue night on the nightstand next to his bed and read to him the included book, “A Bedtime Surprise”. He really liked the soft glow and seemed to have more confidence that night when going to bed.
The timer was very easy to set (similar to an alarm clock) and it can be set for both nap time and night time. I like that it has an internal memory system so I don’t constantly have to reset it from day to day although I did test out changing it and it was very easy to do. My son knows that when the blue light is glowing it is time to stay in bed and when it is light outside or the light is off he can get up.
The first night that I used SleepBuddy™, our son did try to come in bed at 1 a.m. so I just reminded him about his SleepBuddy™ and brought him back to his bed, tucking him in where he remained for the remainder of the night. By the end of the first week, I woke up at 7 a.m. and realized that I hadn’t seen my son during the night. When I entered our children’s bedroom, there he was sleeping soundly! I was so proud of him and my husband and I made a big deal to provide him with positive reinforcement. He was very eager to use the Reward System that is included with the SleepBuddy™ and was just beaming with confidence and pride.
I am very pleased with the results that we are seeing with the SleepBuddy™ system. There was a time that my husband and I thought our son would never sleep in his bed through the night and in just a few short weeks he has proven us wrong much to our delight.
