We received a Claessens’ Kids Kid’sleep Classic Sleep Trainer to facilitate this sleep training review; however, all opinions are my own.
Do sleep trainers work? Sure they do! This one was designed by a dad of six who was decided he needed to create a way to get his kids to sleep past 5:30 am. He set out to find a solution to his and million of other parent’s problems, and that resulted in the Kid’sleep Classic Sleep Trainer by Claessens’ Kids, a nightlight with and wake up alarm for children.
Claessens’ Kids Classic Sleep Trainer
The Claessens’ Kids Kid’sleep Classic Sleep Trainer is available in both a pink and blue color scheme. The pale pink unit features sweet cow in a tutu and the baby blue trainer stars a rabbit with a backpack. The Classic Sleep Trainer can be used from birth as a traditional nightlight with the bonus of a small LED clock for mom and dad. Use it to keep track of baby’s nursing times or when she sleeps. The nightlight with its three levels of brightness lets you make your way in and out of the room without turning on a light.
From Nightlight to Sleep Trainer
When your child is ready, usually around the age of 2-1/2, switch the Kid’sleep Trainer into sleep training mode by switching out the colorful full-size graphic with the one stored on the back of the unit. This second face is split into two scenes – one depicting daytime and the other nighttime. You set the sleep/awake time, and there is a nap alarm that can be used in conjunction with the audible alarm if you like.
Changing the unit from nightlight to sleep timer is an excellent time to talk to your child about growing up and taking on responsibility. Perhaps let her help you change the device to the “grown up” mode, so she feels a sense of pride. Let her know that when the cow is sleeping; she should be too. When the cow is awake, it’s ok to get up. Reinforce her sleeping habits by having her say goodnight to the cow and good morning when it’s time to get up. Reward her for using the cues with extra reading time, bubbles in the bath, and other ways to say you’re doing great.
You can also set the alarm if she has a specific wake-up time. It’s an adorable alarm of birds chirping and the character lights up as well so she has audible and visual confirmation it’s time to get up. The unit can be powered by batteries for travel or with the included AC power plug so you can continue her routine even when you’re away from home.

I’ve never used any sort of sleep training products before… this sounds interesting though. I wonder if something like this would be helpful for my little one now who sometimes refuses to sleep, or wakes up at the crack of dawn.
My daughter had the worst time sleep training. These tips would have been perfect for her
Too bad this wasn’t around when I was a kid. I am a lifelong insomniac, it was a lot harder for me as a kid, it was harder to stay focused in class, now I am more used to it.
This is a fabulous idea and a great way to get little ones used to a new schedule, perhaps before starting preschool or daycare. I love that it’s multi-functional too.
This is such a great idea, I have tried a new method to get my sons to sleep past 5am … I bought an alarm clock that has an LED light if you push a button. Then I placed a sheet of paper on the wall of their bedroom with what time M-F then what time S-Sun they can come downstairs. They still wake pretty early but they are no longer coming downstairs at 5am or earlier causing a ruckus. They have since started sleeping until about 6am … I believe. I would totally try this for my youngest though, as he is still struggling with sleeping as long as he should, and I bet this would entice him!
This is so cute and a good idea. I want some of this for kids. They definitely love this.
We just switched our youngest froma crib to a toddler bed. I feel conflicted because bedtime used to be a breeze (unless she fellout of her crib while trying to climb). This sounds perfect for us.
We were not very successful on the sleep training front! Tried everything too. If we were to do it again (or maybe not that I don’t sleep well LOL) maybe this would be the solution!
This would help a lot. It’s simple and easy to understand. I like that there are multiple way to use it!
This is a great way to sleep train! WE had light up alarm clocks for the kids to tell them when they could get up and come in our rooms to wake us.
What a great idea! I will have to look into getting this for my little ones.
This is such a brilliant idea! I need to get a pink one and a blue one so that my twins can each have one. My daughter tends to wake up early and then wake up my son. So annoying! Will definitely by looking into this!
This is such a great idea! I haven’t seen these sleep trainers before and love how they can help your littles!
I could have used this with my kids. They were so hard to get to go to bed, stay in bed, and fall asleep.
That is so cute, and a great idea. As a mom, I’m all about items that grow with the kiddos. Love it.
This sounds like a great product. I will have to get this for my friends little one. I wish I had this when my son was little.
