Finally! My son is sleeping past 6am! He's a high needs child (a nice way of saying he's stubborn and doesn't want to miss anything), so sleeping for our family has always been a huge struggle. He started waking up before 5am ready to start his day. It was exhausting because before that regression he regularly woke at 5:30, which was bad enough, but 5 was just terrible for my husband and I. Desperate for sleep, I ordered the SleepBuddy, skeptical it would work for my high needs kid, but willing to try anything. I loved how it came wrapped as a present and with a storybook. He LOVED opening it. My son wanted me to read him the book three times the first night we tried it, and we were reading it multiples times before bed every night for a while at his request. Unfortunately, we received it two days before going out of town, and being in a strange place was too much for him to try to understand the SleepBuddy. It took a while just to get back to what it was before we left. I would say after a month or more, he finally got it. Now he says, 'SleepBuddy bluuuuuue' before bed. I can't say that every night he sleeps perfectly, BUT if he wakes up at 5 I go in there and tell him his SleepBuddy is still blue and he goes back to bed sometimes not waking up until 7 even though it's set for 6. For my son's temperament, I would say that is hugely successful and borderline miracle. I should mention we started it just before he turned 2. Most nights he sleeps through the night just fine and wakes up after it turns off. I didn't intend to use it for naps because that's a whole other struggle since day one, but he does follow it for naps, which used to be an hour and now stretched to more. I know 6am is still early for most families, but let me tell you, the extra 30 minutes makes all the difference for us.
