We created this company because we believe that everyone needs sleep and we know how hard it is to find reliable, trusted advice.
We've spent years developing scientifically informed, yet easy to read Programs that cover all the major areas of concern for new parents - sleep, feeding and settling and, importantly, how these interact with one another. Finding this balance can be tricky and our Programs take the guesswork out of it.
Sleep is important for a range of reasons but doesn't necessarily come easily to all babies. Many of the mainstream baby sleep books and advice impose generic and rigid strategies for teaching babies to sleep independently. These don't take into consideration individual variation, unique family circumstances and sometimes even the emotional toll of sleep deprivation. The Little Ones strategies are a more comprehensive alternative and can be tailored to your family so that you really see positive change to your baby or toddler's sleep, and to your whole family's health and wellbeing.

The Programs contain extremely comprehensive guides to get your baby's napping and night-time sleep on track. They are the most detailed and in-depth online sleep programs in the world. The Programs are made up of:
Age-specific Sleeping and Feeding Schedules (which tell you when to offer naps and feeds/solids etc, give you the ideal awake times and optimum nap lengths)
Age specific settling and self-settling methods (which tell you how to get your baby to sleep and, age dependant, contain 9 different methods to gradually guide your baby to independent sleep).
Videos to assist your use and understanding of our Sleep Programs.
Dozens of sections containing all the information you need to understand your baby's sleep.
Do I get any extra support?

Our Nutrition Program has been written by Accredited Practising Dietitian, Tara Sofair.
Do your Sleep Programs involve the "cry it out" methods?
We have developed a unique and gradual approach to baby sleep. Our methods for teaching self-settling (for babies over 4 months) work with your baby’s existing sleep association and allow you to comfort your baby throughout the process, meaning you can go at your own pace and provide hands-on comfort if that is your preference.
Because we aim to cater to many different parenting styles, we also provide a more hands-off method for parents who choose that approach, but this is not traditional "extinction" sleep training.
When will I receive my Sleep Program?
Your Program is available immediately after purchase inside our mobile app and via the customer login on our website. You need to make sure you log in to the app and the website using the email address you purchased with. If this is your not your first purchase from us you will need to log out and back into the app / website to refresh the purchases and view your latest program. If you paid by Paypal, the login will need to be the email address you have associated with your Paypal account.
Will I have to be stuck in the house all day long if I follow your Sleep Program?
Not at all! The best thing about having predictability to your baby’s day is that you’re able to more confidently plan outings for when you know your baby will be awake and happy, rather than not knowing when they’ll need a feed or if they might need a sleep while you’re out. The morning and afternoon naps are really easy to do out and about and we really only suggest you aim for the long lunchtime sleep to happen in your baby’s bed as this helps teach them that this is where they sleep (which has a positive impact on their night time settling and sleep in their bed) and it also ensures they have the best chance for a long nap. An added advantage is that you then have a good 2 hours to yourself to have some lunch in peace or put your feet up.
Do these Programs work for a breastfed baby?
Yes absolutely! Our Little Ones™ founders both breastfed all of their babies while successfully using our Programs. You are also able to breastfeed your baby on demand if that’s your preference, or you can choose to follow the suggested feeding times in the Guides, which are designed to ensure that your little one won’t wake early from naps because they are hungry. The feeding times also change as your baby grows older, ie becoming further apart.
Being a new mom was overwhelming, and as many new moms do, I was simply just winging it; however, at around 12 weeks I slowly started losing my sanity due to sleep deprivation. My babe would only fall asleep on me, and there was no rhyme or reason as to why or when he would sleep. I decided after one obscenely exhausting day to start researching, and that is when I came across Little Ones. It was worth a shot, right? You’ll do anything at 4am and desperate. Little Ones saved my life. I began implementing the structured routine, and my babe began to thrive completely. I, too, became more confident and assure about my abilities. Not only is the program gentle, the community that comes along with it has been by far the most supportive community I’ve ever been a part of. So many amazing mothers and administrators contribute daily, and it makes you feel as if you’re not alone. I have recommended this sleep program to so many other mothers due to my experience, and I will always be grateful for the newfound life it gave me when I was feeling lost and hopeless. Thanks, Little Ones! I am forever in your debt!
