I purchased the Sleep Buddy directly from their website at 4AM a month ago after another sleepless night. Our 3-year-old daughter had been waking up at all hours of the night, refusing to go back to sleep, and would not stay in her bed. We were at wits end and were willing to try anything.

The Sleep Buddy arrived wrapped and my daughter and I opened it. We read the book, went over the Reward Chart, promised Chuck-e-Cheese as an incentive, etc. I plugged it in, set it up, and we gave it a try. For the first few nights, it took a lot of reinforcement and we wondered if we simply purchased a $45 night light on a timer . . . but eventually it worked! She stayed in her bed and slept the night! We could always point to that blue shining dome and reinforce that she should stay in her bed. We could refer to the boy from the book and how he stayed in his bed.

It wasn't until last week that she wet the bed. We had her potty trained since she was 2 and a half and she has access to a toilet at night. She had been using the toilet at night without a problem up until last week. When I asked her why she didn't get up and go, she pointed to the Sleep Buddy and said, "The Sleep Buddy was on!" And she was right. The storybook that comes with the Sleep Buddy depicts an older boy receiving the Sleep Buddy from his mother and staying in his bed when the light is blue. There is no page that says it's OK to get up and use the potty if you have to go. It needs to be added, especially since this is marketed for kids up to 6 years of age.

Overall, I am happy with the Sleep Buddy. I would have paid anything to get my daughter to sleep through the night, so the $45 shipped cost, while high, was worth it to me. I've also added pages to the book myself that says it's OK to use the potty at night. A girl version of the story would make it that much better!

Purchased this for my boys room (3 and 2 years old) so that they would know when it was time to get up in the morning. The price was a bit high but we decided to go for it after reading some reviews on other websites. The product is very well made, has a quality feel and is easy to use (although a battery backup would be nice) - it has taken several 3-year-old prompted flights across the room without damage. We have been using it for about 6 months now and overall I have been very pleased. We don't really use it for the going-to-bed time (because we aren't that consistent about bedtime), however we do use and enforce it in the mornings. The light instantly solved the issue of my 3 year old coming into my room every 5 minutes in the morning and asking if it was "time to wake up yet" (worth the money for this alone). It did take some time and consistent enforcement to get him to stay in bed until the light was out, and he still needs a reminder every once and awhile. He now knows that he can turn his light on and read in his bed until the sleep buddy goes out. My now 2 year-old (26 months) is just starting to understand the light and that he needs to stay in bed until it goes out; when be bought it we was only about 20 months old and the light was not effective at all (some other parents may be better at this than I). We appreciate the sleep buddy enough that we now take it on vacation with us (along with a noise maker - which I would love to see incorporated into the sleep buddy). Overall I would recommend this product.

Overall it commend this to anyone trying to get help with their kid going to bed. My 3 yr old totally bought in from the moment we bought it. I never read her the book or did the incentive chart because she just "got it". My 2 yr old is getting there, but it wasn't as immediate with him. He now comes to me in the morning and announces, "Sleep buddy off." It does help if either wake up in the middle of the night. They don't stay in their room and go back to bed always, but now I just walk them back in, point to sleep buddy, say, "Sleep buddy's on, it's time to sleep," and they go back to bed no fuss and don't bargain to go downstairs. It almost works too well in that if you want to sleep past sleep buddy, no dice unless you changed the timer the night before to go off later. I love that it also programs for naps, not something the other clocks did. It also serves as a nightlight, which helped my kids a lot in their dark rooms. The reason for four stars: it has three dimming settings, I wish it had four or five (I think the lowest is still bright), and it isn't the easiest to program. It's not "hard", more annoying that you have to cycle through everything to get to the choices. You do a lot of toggling to get it done and it's not quick to double check. Also, wish you could have battery back-up for power outages or travel.

Our son, who is just under 3, has always slept through the night, basically since he was two weeks old, so sleeping has never been the issue. At some point a couple of months ago he just started getting out of bed earlier and earlier. So we figured we'd give something like this a try just to get him to stay in his room a little longer. We followed the suggested way to present this to him, as a special present, read the book a couple of times, and that was it. He took right to it, understood the concept of staying in bed/room until the light turns off, and now every morning comes in and tells us that he waited until his Sleep Buddy was off, very proud of himself. We just make sure to refer to it as his Sleep Buddy, like a companion. About the product itself, it's slightly smaller than what I was expecting but not a big deal. It gives off a very nice blue glow that's comforting, and it's nice to be able to change the level of brightness. The clock isn't the easiest to set, but once you figure it out it's no big deal. As others have stated having a true battery backup, like a couple of AAA or AA's would really help because our son has unplugged it a couple of times and brought it in our room with him. And when you travel with it you're stuck resetting it. Otherwise I would highly recommend this to anyone to give it a shot!
