Make nap time and bedtime easier and less of a struggle with Mr. MoonLight.

Mr. Moonlight gently teaches children to stay in bed longer in the morning so parents get more sleep.

5 stars on App Store

A visual “sun” and “moon” cues teach young children, ages 2 to 5, to distinguish between the cycles of day and night and learn healthy sleep patterns.

Mr. MoonLight displays a glowing moon in the evening (or for afternoon nap) and quietly changes to a sun, (at a time parents specify), to confirm that nighttime or nap time is over and it is okay to wake up. If your child wakes up too early, use this app to teach them to rest quietly until “the sun comes up” at the time that you set.

Mr MoonLight minimizes parent-child tension and negotiation at sleep time and reduces power struggles by shifting focus towards “waiting for the sun to come up.”


Child-recognizable “sun” and “moon” visual cues.

Timer mode for afternoon napping.-(Set time interval, e.g. 1 hour)

Clock mode for night time sleeping

Optional gradual-wake lullaby music and good night lullaby music.

What People Are Saying

“We love this app and so does my 2 year old! She understands that it isn’t time to be up until “the sun comes out”. Super helpful!


“Love it, simple and great, beautiful graphics, would love to see an update with a few more choices for night songs and different moon/sun combos. Really really great app, no more fighting about what time to get up with my little one!”
