The first clock that tells kids who can't tell time how long they have to wait before waking up the rest of the household.

* Child-appropriate clock
* Teaches children about time
* Lets parents sleep
* Nightlight
* Optional alarm


I designed Back to Sleep to create a fun way to help my child -- and yours -- gauge the passage of time and know when it is ok to wake up the rest of the household. I wanted to protect parents like me from being awoken at four in the morning by a child old enough to follow instructions but too young to know how to read a clock.

After you set the wake time for your child, use the "preview night animation" button to show your child what to expect. Explain that your child should not wake you up until after all of the sheep are awake, have left the field, and have had their party.

If you plug your device in, Back to Sleep can also function as a calming nightlight.

By default, the alarm sound is off because we want to encourage your child to stay in bed as long as possible. But if you wish to use Back to Sleep as a traditional alarm clock, you can turn on the alarm.

I hope Back to Sleep helps your child stay in bed and allows you to have a full night's sleep.
