Help Kids Stay in Bed with the Sleep Buddy {#NoiseGirls Review}


The one thing I still struggle with my son at night is the fact that he wakens and comes into our room at random hours. Some nights he is in our bed by 11pm and other nights he sleeps soundly in his own bed. You never know who you're going to wake up next to in our bed!

I've been searching for a solution and I think I found it! 

Sleep Buddy not only helps children know when to stay in bed simply by the soft blue light it emits, it also lets them know when they can get out of bed when it turns off. And Sleep Buddy doesn't just stop there. Each buddy is wrapped and packaged special for the recipient. 


My son flipped out (in a good way) when he received his present and quickly wanted to open it to see what was inside. I read the note from Sleep Buddy to him welcoming him into the family and let him go at it.


What he found was his new Sleep Buddy system complete with a light and book explaining exactly what the Sleep Buddy was and how it was used. As soon as he saw the book he sat down and asked me to read it to him. As I did he asked questions along the way.

His first concern was being able to get out of bed when he was thirsty. Then if he could get out of bed to go to the restroom. Then he wanted to make sure that if Molly was crying he could come in our room to see if she was ok. All testing to see when he could ignore the light to come into our room.


We went through everything again and then I showed him this:


He was quite excited about the prospect of getting a reward once he got down to the end of each week AND that he was going to be able to put the stickers on all by himself in the morning. We were good to go!


We tested out the Sleep Buddy first for naptime. My son has no problem taking a 3 hour nap without waking but my daughter is still working on it. So we decided to explain everything to her and let her try it out for us during her nap.

Since she has only been napping in her toddler bed for a few days we thought it'd be a good test to introduce both at the same time (the new bed and the new Sleep Buddy). While she didn't sleep for as long as she needed she did stay in her bed and called out for me instead of getting out of bed early from her nap! I call that a success.


My son still has nights where he crawls into bed with us but he's quite adamant that the Sleep Buddy was off when he comes in. He hasn't been coming in until early morning and that's a success as well. Now if only his sister would take his lead and start sleeping in her bed the whole night.

I guess we have time to work on that!

If you're looking for a great way to help keep your child in bed longer I highly suggest that you check out the Sleep Buddy. It truly is a complete sleep system. I'm so glad we have it in our home now!

You can purchase your Sleep Buddy on their website. Sleep Buddy can also be found on Facebook and Twitter as well.

I'm pretty sure my sons would try to unplug it, but this would be great if I could avoid that! :)

I think this is a great way to teach children to sleep in their own rooms, and I love that rewards and stickers are used to encourage success.

It looks so awesome. I think I need one just for myself

This looks great! I'd love to win one for my boys, who are ALWAYS looking for excuses to get out of bed! :p

This is totally cool! I love it. I wish I had something like this when my kids were little. I should have gotten this while our 37 year old niece was staying with us, then we wouldn't have been startled out of our sleep when she decided to eat at 3am.

I really need this for my son who still misses mommy in the night. Maybe it would help him understand!

Jenny said... Reply To This Comment

This would be perfect for my nieces when they sleep over. I have such a hard time getting them to go to sleep without their mom.

I cannot wait until my son is old enough to understand something like this! What a great idea!

This would be great in letting my grandson know it's not time to wake up and play yet!

Jennifer Hiles said... Reply To This Comment

Never seen anything like it! It's a very interesting idea though - I wonder what the success rate is with this unit.

great alternative to a nightlight

This is great - my son definitely gets up a lot in the middle of the night and I'm sure this would help

what a neat idea!

This is great! My son used to ask to come out of his room after 2 minutes, claiming he had taken a nap. Liar :)

This would come in handy when transitioning a toddler from crib to a bed, which is something we will be doing soon!

What a fantastic idea!! I sure could have used one of these a few years ago!!

What great teaching tool.

This looks like a great system, especially when it starts getting light out earlier and earlier!

I think I've seen this advertised on tv too. It's an interesting way of doing things anyway.

I was lucky that we didn't have this problem with our kids. All 3 of them stayed in bed...all night long. I have some friends that struggle with their little ones getting out of bed in the middle of the night. I bet they'd love this! Neat idea.

So happy to hear of this. Getting tired of kids trying to get in bed in the wee hours

Vesta Mason said... Reply To This Comment

What a great idea! This would be great for my grandson as he is about to start sleeping in a "big boy" bed!

Denise M said... Reply To This Comment

I LOVE this idea! We have been looking for something to help get my son to sleep in his own bed! Maybe this will be a fun helper!

What a fun idea. I love how easy it is.

I wish they had the sleep buddy when my kids were small.

Erin said... Reply To This Comment

i need this for my almost 1 year old son. b/c of our living arrangements, up until recently, he's been in the room with us or with my daughter. now he is up several times a night, walking into our room...we both need sleep.

Jenny Stanek said... Reply To This Comment

My husband and I have just been talking about trying to figure out how on earth to keep our twin sons in their OWN bed at night, this seems like a great idea!

my twins would just play with this

Kasee said... Reply To This Comment

Gauging time is a difficult task to master ... for adults, too! I love how easy this makes it for little ones to understand just a little better! My youngest never knows when it's okay to wake up his brother - and since they share a room, Wyatt often gets less sleep than he would like, thanks to Reed's insistence on playing. This would solve the problem! Thank you for sharing!

Debbie said... Reply To This Comment

This is definitely an innovative idea. I think with the sleep buddy and the reward system the children would fuss less at nap time.

TrinityMachael said... Reply To This Comment

What an excellent idea! I never would have thought of that. It would be great for my youngest daughter who tends to be up and really inappropriate times!
