If you set the brightness to zero on the Groclock it doesn't have a light at night either btw
this...we have it set on zero and it is completely dark.

I saw the groclock in target today, but im in Canada and im not sure if they carry it in the US stores,  it may be worth a look.  I found it in the baby section with all the sound machines, etc.

ok so M has a clock as of today. I set it for 6.30am as she goes to bed around 7.45/8pm and we don't get much more than 10.5 hours overnight. Today I went in when she woke and called and sat waiting for the sun with her - we made a big deal of the sun coming up. I was thinking of possibly doing the same tomorrow and then using more of a WIWO approach i.e. if she calls go to her but telling her she needs to wait for the sun etc. Does that sound ok? With H we stood by the door and reminded him and did not even go in but it will be hard to do that as I will have to talk pretty loudly over the fan etc which will no doubt wake H. Do you think it is ok to go in but remind her to wait for the sun?

That's what we did too. Then after that if she woke and called/cried early just treated it as if it were a NW.

so you went in and did more of a WIWO Catherine?

this am we managed to get to 6.30am before I went in, she was on and off awake before that but happy enough so that was good :)
Not sure at all when to move it forward - kinda ok with 6.30am although 7am would be nice....but maybe I am asking for too much!?

I'd wait until she is not calling you before the sun or waking shortly before it and then move it by 5 mins at a time

Yes, after a few days we knew she understood the concept so just did wiwo like a NW if she called/cried for us early, without mentioning the sun.  Still made a big deal of the sun being up and saying good morning when it was time to get up though, and saying good night to it at BT.

well it is going ok. Today she did not call for me until 6.40am so she was obviously still asleep which is good. Do you think I should move it on to 6.35am and just do 5 mins every 2-3 days?

If she woke at 6.40 I would set it for then tomorrow and then move it by 5 mins every few days from there.

Is she getting more sleep than she used to now with later WU? It's possible you might need a routine tweak soon.

not really getting more sleep Catherine. She is restless from about 6am. I am waiting for her last 2 canines to be fully through and then will def need to post as she is napping 2 hours but on average does a 10-11 hour night with most normal being 10-10.5. She has always been a short night sleeper so I just let her nap for 2 hours but at some point it must be robbing night sleep surely? Anyway, we go away on Friday so will just leave things as they are for the next couple of weeks and then reassess. x

hmm well she is sleeping past the clock. I set it for 6.40am today and I heard her wake or stir at 5.40am but now it is 6.55 and she is asleep. Not sure what to do about the time on the clock? V unusual for her to sleep in!

Such good news! I'd leave it as it is for a couple of mornings in case today was a fluke, then move it on again.
