Does anyone know if there are vibrating alarm clocks, or some other device that can wake one person up, but not all the people in the family bed? Thank you!
Well, the one we have isn't really silent, but depending on the sleep patterns of the others, it might work for you. We recently bought one of those Zen alarm clocks-- it has a series of chimes to wake you up, rather than a buzzer or music. It sounds the chime *once*, and then 3 1/2 minutes later, *once* again, and continues on in a progression getting closer and closer together till it's ringing continuously. I find that I invariably wake up at the first chime, but that other folks can sleep through this, or go right back to sleep easily.
