My Tot Clock: Helping Children Everywhere Sleep Better Review {Giveaway}


My Tot Clock is an all-in-one sleep aid, alarm clock, nightlight and timer for children ages 2+. This revolutionary clock teaches children when it is time to sleep and when it is o.k to get  out of bed by changing colors.

My Tot Clock also plays lullabies, bedtime stories, white nose and it has four different face lights (for sleeping, waking, discipline and positive encouragement).

Here are the colors and their meanings: Yellow for wake time, light blue for nap time, green for encouragement, red for time out, and dark blue for night time.  

My 19 month old son is already identifying the colors and matching them with the different activities and I love that!

I also like how highly customizable everything is and how very easy it is to operate it. If you would like to teach your children how to tell time and how to tell when it’s time for them to get up, take a nap  and even have a “time out” (if you give time outs) then you need to get a My Tot Clock. This is specially helpful when your little one transitions from the crib to a toddler bed.

The My Tot Clock has an analog clock on one side with a background that  automatically changes color (depending on the time/ activity) and on the other side you can see a digital time display with all of the controls to “set up” the times and control each function.

My Tot Clock

The My Tot Clock has an alarm clock as well that plays a song to wake up in the morning or during naps. I haven’t used that yet since he is still very young and I am usually hoping for him to sleep a bit longer anyway. I am sure we will use it more once he is a bit older.

Right now we enjoy the nap and bed time story, music or white noise options.  It helps when we are doing our bedtime routine and my little one loves listening to the story.   The stories come in a small cartridge that can be  purchased directly on their website  (each clock comes with one cartridge).

The My Tot Clock retails for $49.95. The face plates are $9.95 and each of the Tot Clock Treasures cartridges are $12.95

Tot Clock

My Tot Clock is a wonderful tool to help your children learn about time and to create a proper sleep routine.  Check out their website to see all of the adorable face plates and story cartridges they offer for little girls and boys.

  1. when kids are sick it goes thru house then back again so like 1 wk with not much sleep

  2. Definitely the early days of feeding on demand!

  3. That one time we tried cry it out in desperate measures…and my then 1yo lasted eight hours – needless to say, we never tried it again, won’t try it with this one…and my 3.5yo still sleeps with us at night 😉

  4. Ooooh, ONE sleep deprivation story?! How about every night for the past 4 years?! 😉 No really, probably the worst was the early days of cosleeping when I was woken every hour by either the baby wanting to nurse or my husband’s hallucinations that he rolled on her……..

  5. I was a zombie when my baby was sick, living on coffee and walking the floor with her. …I was so out of it that I put the full trash bag in the refrigerator instead of the outside can. 🙂 Thank you.

  6. Starting work at 0300, Yawn!

  7. could be the time I forgot to re-hook my nursing tank and opened the door to get a package from the delivery guy to only realize later part of myself was hanging out! Not all just a little 🙂

  8. I was so sleep deprived with a newborn at home…one day I couldn’t find the car keys ANYWHERE! And had to finally give up on leaving the house, so I went to get a snack- found the keys in the refrigerator. No idea when I had put them in there!

  9. My daughter’s teeth!

  10. I have to say that all 3 of my children have been great sleepers. But the problem is ME! I can’t sleep thinking that they need me for something or other….they all sleep in the same room! I wish I could sleep as good as they do!

  11. For the first 6 months after my son was born i didnt get more than 2 hours of sleep @ a time….I was exhausted!!

  12. My son having colic so bad while we were living with my mother in-law. It was the longest I have ever spent without sleep as well as the longest time without sitting down. Exhaustion !!!!

  13. My daughter has been a fairly good sleeper but does insist on creeping into our bed half-way through the night.

  14. My worst sleep deprivation comes after working a twelve hour overnight shift, only to have to be awake with my 2 year old all day the next day… I have found him both feet in the potty after waking from what I thought was only a blink of an eye… 😉

  15. My worst sleep deprivation was driving to Disney World from up here in New England….never been so tired in my life.

  16. my newborn son used to stay up all night breastfeeding…when i would put him in his crib he would wake right up…then he would only go to sleep around 7am, just in time for his 1 1/2 yr old sister to get up…afew months later i decided to bring him to my bed…it took over 3yrs to get him out of our bed, but he’s 6 now and has no sleep issues…yay!!

  17. Skipped one whole night of sleep when studying in college

  18. I once stayed awake for just over 48 hours while attending a music festival. I was a teenager then and recovered quickly. I sure could not do that now!

    Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

  19. had to be when the kids were teething…up for hours rocking & walking the florr

  20. It would have to be the straight 24 hrs drives that we’ve done trying to save money on vacation by just driving straight through. Catch a few hours of sleep then it’s time for sight seeing! That first day we were zombies!

  21. my Grandson will love this!

  22. I made it through my last year of nursing school w/a newborn…I haven’t slept through the night in over 13 mths now

  23. I was late into my pregnancy with twins. Wasn’t comfortable, so wasn’t sleeping well at all. I was out to lunch with friends, and when I ordered a gargantuan amount of food, I said, “Hey, I’m eating for four now.” They looked at me and laughed, and it took me a long time before I realized that no, I was only eating for three.

  24. We are so many – hard to choose just one; but falling asleep in the bathub is one! lol

  25. I was the most sleep deprived in college. I always waited until the last minute to write my papers!

  26. For sure kids will love this. I like the features of this clock “lullabies, bedtime stories, white nose and it has four different face lights (for sleeping, waking, discipline and positive encouragement)”. It is really good for the kids. For adults, who has a problem sleeping, you may try some tips in this article:

  27. Sorry, I didn’t see it was only open to the US before I entered. Can you delete my entries?

  31. Getting up every hour to pump my milk because I had low milk supply was hard.

  32. My second had jaundice bad and woke him up every 2 hours through the night and he was a slow nurser and on top of that my 18month old was getting up often still.

  33. Starting a new job on 2 hours of sleep due to my DD waking habits.

  34. I must admit to nursing in bed. I am an extremely light sleeper and with 4 children 5 and under it was the only way I could see my way through.

  35. After my first child was born, I was sitting on the couch with my husband. I thought I heard the baby down the hall and asked if he heard her. He looked at me stangely and then I realized I was nursing her. 😉

    • *strangely* 😉

  36. Having a newborn and 19 month old was horrible! I never slept lol.

  44. My daughter is 3 months old. Enough said?

  45. This is definatly needed in my house, 5:30 is way to early to get up! I wish the almost 3 year old would realize this

  46. Sleep deprivation was a term I never understood until our little one arrived. Who knew you could still function (limited of course) without sleep. Thank goodness he grew up! Now we have sleepless nights a different way!

  49. I was so tired from taking care of two sick little ones that at work I accidentally nodded off for a second which was long enough for my hair to get caught in the printer.

  50. Studying for finals, I stayed up all night, took the test the next afternoon, and intended to sleep after that…forgetting totally that we were going out of town with the in-laws. I didn’t sleep for two days straight…I was so tired at one point that I forgot I was tired, but the strange tingly sensation I had was a reminder.

  51. Twins, nursing, sleep deprived for years..

  52. Hmm, unfortunately, nothing too crazy, but I have been woken up by my 3yo every half-hour before a busy workday, and it was awful. I could barely stay awake at work the next day!

  53. I cant think of anything to crazy just falling asleep in the chair a lot with the babies

  54. I just remember a busy week where I wasn’t getting to sleep unitl almost 3 and getting up at 6 for work. It was real bad.
