Meet Momo! Isn’t he cute?
Momo is a sleep trainer made by BabyZoo to help show your child when it is okay to get out of bed or if they need to go back to sleep.
My son is 4 years old and he has horrible sleeping habits! Every morning at 6am we would hear a little voice outside of our door telling us “I have to go pee!!”. This had become an every day thing and we knew he didn’t really have to go pee, this is his beckon to us that he was ready to come out of his room.
This morning ritual of his was wearing thin on mommy and daddy, specially on the weekends.. who wants to wake up at 6am on the weekends!?
We were invited to review Momo the sleep trainer and I couldn’t tell you how excited I was to say YES!
How Momo Works:
To set Momo you will need to untwist his back to remove the cover, switch the mode to alarm, set the time of when you would like Momo’s eyes to open up and then push the “alarm set” button.
When the alarm has been set Momo will then shut his eyes, this will tell your child that it is time to be in bed.
The alarm features both a silent function and a bell function so if your child is young enough that you do not need a real alarm or if you would like your child to sleep in on the weekends you can turn the volume off.
Come morning Momo will open his eyes up when the clock has reached the time that you have set, this will tell your child that it is okay to get out of bed.
How Well Does It Work?
We have been using Momo for a couple of weeks now and our experience has been close to perfect! We have taught my son that he needs to stay in his room so long as Momo has his eyes closed. For a child who can’t tell time this is a great visual to let them know when it is time to come out of their room. Occasionally we will hear him ask to come out early, however I would say 95% of the time he stays in his room without a peep until Momo has opened his eyes.
My son has grown a slight fear of Momo and is sometimes scared to go in his room when Momo is awake. I think the opening of his eyes made things a little too real for him. However, this has not effected how Momo works for us as a family. We now place Momo on a high shelf and make sure his eyes are closed before my son goes to bed. He is happy with this arrangement and I’m happy to finally have my sleep.
Perfect for parents of both young and older children. Not only does Momo help show your child when it is time to get up, it also teaches them how to tell time with both an analog and digital clock.
Momo the sleep trainer would make an awesome gift for the holidays!
