SleepyTime is an app for iPhones and iPads that helps your little one develop independence in their bedtime routine and also gets them excited about going to bed. With the help of SleepyTime, parents can skip the struggle and tears of telling their child that it is time for bed. SleepyTime allows parents to create a timed, personalized bedtime routine for their child. And with the unique parent rewards system SleepyTime has in place, kids feel accomplished and more independent. SleepyTime also provides parents with a support system, where they can share similar situations they are encountering with their children through chats and forums. SleepyTime helps create a smooth transition for bedtime and gets kids motivated and in the routine of getting prepared for bed quickly, without a hassle.
