Gro Company – Safe Sleep Products and a Gro Clock Giveaway

My babies are not so little now, but when they were babies we loved our Gro Baby Sleep bags. Both children slept in them, and I felt happy knowing they were warm, comfortable and safe.

The Gro Company have a wide range of safe sleep products for babies, and things to help parents with their little one’s sleep. They are endoresed by the Lullaby Trust, the safe sleep charity, and their products are carefully and beautifully desinged to help from newborn to toddler where sleep is concerned.

We have a Gro Clock, for Matthew, which we bought to help encourage him to stay in bed, a little longer in the mornings, when he moved into his toddler bed, from a cot. So many people recommended it to us, and he learned how to know when it was ok to get up and come and wake us, and when it might be time to stay in bed, just that little bit longer. We still rely on it now, to help him to not wake us up too early. 

They are so simple and easy to use and well designed so they fit into the decor of any nursery or bedroom. The theory is that you set the clock to when are happy for you child to be “up” and the clock stays dark with night time faces, and stars to count down until it is time to get up. The clock changes to daytime, with a smiley sunshine, when it is time to get up. Simple but easy for a little one to understand. We just ask Matthew “what does your clock say?” and he knows it is still time to be in bed, not chattting to his not quite awake parents about lego, dinosaurs or how many bones are in his body, before we have had our morning coffee! πŸ˜‰ Many parents, not just us, swear by the Gro Clock! 

“The Gro-clock also comes with a beautifully illustrated book which helps to encourage children to stay in bed longer, which means more sleep for them and more sleep for you! “No more getting up at 5am!”. It is this combination of the simple glowing images and the bedtime story book which has already made the Gro-Clock a phenomenal success”

We love our Gro Clock so much, and now we ourselves recommend it to other families. 

We are very excited to have a Gro Clock to giveaway to one lucky reader of our blog. 

To enter to win, you need to leave us a comment with your top tip to help toddlers stay in bed and sleep. As you know, we struggled with sleep for a long time, with our boy, and many  parents do, so it’s great to share helpful advice. It must be safe, practical advice (my grandma would have said “a tot of brandy in their night time milk” but that’s not the sort of thing we mean!)

    I don’t have any hints or tips but am going be keenly looking for some. Our baby isn’t here yet but I’m trying to get prepared so after Christmas I might feel a bit less scared!

  2. Tracy Nixon says:

    Never sleep on a sofa with your baby. Your baby could become wedged in the cracks between sofa cushions or between you and the back of the sofa.

  3. Martina Pichova says:

    I you co-sleep, put your baby’s bed next to yours and don’t put pillows or duvet on it, just let them sleep in the sleeping bag.

  4. Samantha Loughlin says:

    Never let you baby over sleep xxx

  5. Jo Hutchinson says:

    Make sure your baby isn’t too swamped with pillows and bedding.

  6. Katherine Teff says:

    Invest in some Gro-bags, which are TOG rated. They come with a room thermometer and a handy guide to what to dress the baby in, as well as which tog sleeping bag to use, depending on the temperature. Also put your baby with their feet at the foot of the crib, rather than their head at the head of the crib, so that they can’t wriggle right down under the covers as they sleep

  7. Laura Pritchard says:

    I make sure the bumpers are tied tightly & securely as I’ve heard of babies strangling themselves in them.

  8. Lynsey Buchanan says:

    Always place babies to sleep on their backs during naps and at nighttime. Because babies sleeping on their sides are more likely to accidentally roll onto their stomach, the side position is just as dangerous as the stomach position.

  9. claire woods says:

    Milk before bed.

  10. Clare Hubbard says:

    Gro bags are brilliant as my children always kick blankets off them.

  11. Ruth Harwood says:

    Try teach early about the difference between night and day!

  12. Angela treadway says:

    Get them into a sleeping routine as soon as they get home for example put them down at 8 oclock everynight in a quiet darkened room will get them used to going to bed at a certain time x

  13. Kim Neville says:

    For any fidgety babies who like to kick the covers invest in grobags as they keep them nice and snug. My son has always liked his jelly at bunnies in bed for comfort

  14. Michaela Hannah says:

    We found that both our children found a soft blanket really comforting to cuddle

  15. Jo m welsh says:

    Don’t lay on the sofa with baby if you are very tired you don’t want to risk falling asleep

  16. Emma Fox says:

    Put a duvet next to your cot if your baby is close to climbing out. My son mastered this whilst he was still crawling and it’s quite a drop down!

  17. Lizzy Cooper says:

    For me personally, I think babies should stay in the same room with parents for at least a year. It’s worked really well with my son and he’s now happy to be in his own room. It gave us peace of mind and If anything happens or they get too hot or cold, you’re right there with them! πŸ™‚

  18. esther james says:

    Try and get them into a good routine

  19. Nancy Bradford says:

    I know everyone says it but it is so true – sleep when the baby sleeps and never wake a sleeping baby just because s/he is soooo cute πŸ™‚

  20. Vickie Jackson says:

    Housework can wait. Sleep is important for you and baby.

  21. Alex Brownlee says:

    watch them on a child monitor for peace of mind

  22. claire bingham says:

    Don’t wrap the child in too many leaves as they could over hear

  23. Kerry W says:

    I’m a huge fan of co-sleeping but not from birth. Make sure you baby next to your bed and knows you are there. There is nothing more comforting for a child that being close to mum or dad.

  24. Gemma Cook says:

    My advice is to not let your baby over sleep as they will be groggy all day x

  25. Natalie Crossan says:

    My advice is never let them start sleeping in your bed. Parents have real nightmares getting kids to re-learn to settle themselves. It’s heart breaking when all you want to do is snuggle them all night but it’s essential for their well being x

  26. Kim Styles says:

    do not leave cuddly toys in the cot. they carry germs and dust and can be used as a step to climb on

  27. Victoria Prince says:

    Establish a routine and stick to it πŸ™‚
