Next week is National Sleep Awareness Week. We at MommaSaid want you to be aware that there is sleep, even if you’re not getting any. At the end of the week, we will spring forward our clocks for Daylight Saving Time – and lose an entire hour of sleep.
WHAT’S THE PRIZE?
A free Good Nite Lite (www.goodnitelite.com), valued at $34.99. It’s a behavioral modification device that features a friendly, glowing caricature face that changes from a Moon to a Sun at the programmed “wake-up” time, and from a Sun to a Moon at the programmed “bedtime. Plus, signed copies of Jen Singer’s books, “Stop Second-Guessing Yourself — The Toddler Years” and “Stop Second Guessing Yourself — The Preschool Years,” 2010 gold Mom’s Choice Award winners, both with chapters on finding that elusive sleep.
CoolMomPicks.com reviewed Jen’s books, saying, “Jen has bestowed us with the rare parenting guides that actually give parents the shot of confidence we need to survive another day. Or sometimes, just another five minutes.”
WHY THAT’S COOL:
The Good Nite Lite can help parents and their kids make the transition smoothly, learning healthy and acceptable sleeping habits. With the help of their parents, children rapidly come to associate the moon image with the knowledge that it is still bedtime and the sun with the idea that it is the correct time to wake up. During the day, the Good Nite Lite automatically shuts off to eliminate any distractions and to conserve energy. Created by a father after his children would wake up at 5:00 a.m. every morning, regardless of what time they went to bed, the Good Nite Lite is available at www.GoodNiteLite.com for just $34.99. While the Good Nite Lite was not designed to aid children with special needs, it has also been a great tool for assisting individuals and families who have been affected by poor sleep (autism, hearing impairment, etc).
And Jen’s writing has been known to make coffee come out of moms’ noses on occasion.
DEADLINE: Noon ET on Monday, March 8th. A winner will be selected at random by Random.org. Good luck!
