Completely disappointing app

The program suggested to put my 6 months old daughter to sleep only for half an hour in the morning and with a later extremely short cat nap (only 10 Min) in the evening. My baby was grumpy all the time in the afternoon and evening and I couldn t keep up trying to match the timing suggested by the app. The system doesn t adapt around the family schedule and it doesn t change in case you missed the wake window. So completely disappointing as after I paid for it I would have expected at least a more accurate schedule that could change around my daughter's nap times. Also there are way too many articles to read in the app. A complete waste of money. I wish I could get a refund.

Mixed review !

My honest opinion on the sleep programme is mixed. I purchased it to fix early waking in my 8 month old twins…. Despite following absolutely every bit of advice and information on the app to a T, it did not help with the problem at all. So, in that respect, it didn’t work for me. However, the schedule on the whole is brilliant and it’s working really well for our family during the day in terms of timing and naps. Overall, I don’t regret my purchase as I feel I got enough out of it to warrant the cost, I’m just disappointed it didn’t do what I had hoped it would

Didn't work for us

I think the Schedule would work for families with their first child. I have a 3yo which goes to nursery and needs to be dropped off, picked up and entertained daily and the baby's routine didn't fit around his schedule. If I am Out and about, in and out of the car constantly, it's impossible to stick to a 30mins afternoon nap. I'm sure it worked for some families but it didn't work for mine.

Would not recommend

I posted here but my review appears to have disappeared. The routines suggested in this app did not suit either of my two babies. I used an Irish online consultant who could give much better advice in terms of finding a more flexible routine which worked for my family and which accomodated everyday routines such as school drop offs. The routines we adapted were also much more in keeping with nap times used in crèche. My children have been good sleepers at home and in school as a result.

It worked!

I was very sceptical about a sleeping program for my baby who was 4 months when I started and was going through a sleep regression. She woke up every 2 hours in the night and was always overtired at daytime and couldn’t settle without rocking or dummie. With the help from the village in LO and from the program, my baby started sleeping through the night and settled on her own after just a week and it felt like a dream 🥰 I have asked a few random questions in the village and always receive good answers. Thank you!

Saved my soul

I had been struggling getting my baby to sleep, constant rocking, bouncing, feeding you name it at all hours of the day and night, all the while she’s screaming and crying. This went on for weeks and I was slowly breaking down little bit by little bit each day and found myself crying with her.
I had read the reviews on the little ones page and thought, this is worth the money if it helps us in anyway.
By day 2 of using the program my baby was putting herself to sleep within 3 minutes and very minimal tears. It’s been a few weeks now and she’s sleeping through the night 10-12 hours at 6 months. I can even get her down for the afternoon nap in the cot with just one re-settle in the room.
Since I’ve been using the app and seen such success, my other mum friends have also purchased and are seeing great results too.

It’s such a good program, and you can alter it to suit your baby and lifestyle. The information provided is invaluable. And it’s the best money I have ever spent.

THANK YOU LITTLE ONES

It’s like a magic spell!

We started the programme as we realised we were a couple of weeks into the 4 month sleep regression - things were spiralling out of control fast. Our Little One had always been a catnapper but nights had been ok up until then but we knew we needed to do something to guide him as he wasn’t correcting any of the issues himself as we’d previously hoped. Don’t get me wrong, it was REALLY hard work - especially as we started the programme the week before Christmas but we figured things couldn’t get much worse so gave it a go. We also realised it was best to ditch the dummy, which there was great guidance on and the village was well worth the add on price to help us through this. After two and a half weeks, we now have a calm, self settling baby that goes from wide awake to fast asleep for all naps and bedtimes and I cannot believe I’m able to write that so soon. It’s like a magic trick when I watch him drift off! To be completely honest, some days were extremely hard for us emotionally and you have to really dig deep to trust the process - the gratitude / self care section definitely helped me so much through those rough days. I would advise anyone in a similar predicament to get this app and advise them that you need to be really strong and push through because once a few things click with your little one, the other pieces of the puzzle start to slot together so fast from there. We are all more happy and content than ever and will certainly be sticking to the daily plans up to 12 months and maybe even further! Thank you so much!

Good sleep!

Really like this app! Great layout, is user friendly. I love the troubleshooting and how detailed it is. My boy is 7 and a half months and at the start he would only sleep on us (contact naps) in the day. Slowly over months got him to pram naps and eventually into the cot. I started using little ones and ended up using the quick method (I love how it's a pick up) and now he sleeps 2 hours for his lunch nap and earlier this week he slept through the night and has only woken up once a night for a feed since then. I like how you can ask questions to sleep consultants (although have to pay $20 extra), and they give very good timely replies.

Fitted my family like a dream

From the beginning the Little ones sleep program worked really well for my little one! I was struggling with naps and realised I was not giving my little one enough awake time. I really like that littke ones uses weeks not months to calculate the awake time and slowly increases it. It also is useful to have the troubleshooting topics which helps when baby doesnt run with the program. It's reassuring to have an idea of what to do so you don't have to spend the whole day figuring out your babies sleep.

Worth every penny! Easy to make work for your family!!!

I started Little Ones around the 4 month sleep regression. This program is so easy to make work for you and your family. I love that they don't pressure you to make changes but want to make sure that you are okay with what you are doing!!! My overall goal was to have my daughter nap in her crib so that I could spend time with my other kids. It took a while, and I enjoyed being gentle, but my daughter now does her 2 hour nap in her crib! Also, it really is freeing to have the guides (and that is what they are guides!) to know when your little one should go down for a nap. It really made it easier to let them try to work it out when you knew they were actually tired, not that you thought maybe they should be!! It can be as gentle as a program as you would like! For a few months probably 6-10 months, I wasn't sure anything was working and I was wondering what was wrong...but then things kind of fell into place. Life is not magical by any means but having a guide and a routine has made things much less stressful. Plus, I know it is okay to make changes due to travel, sickness, etc and then we will fall back into our routine when we can. Thank you so much for this program and for letting me modify it to fit our family!!

Grateful for this program

Since starting our baby on the Little Ones program we have seen significant improvements to our baby’s sleep. He went from being an overtired, cranky baby who would only nap for 30 mins at a time and wake multiple times a night to a baby that consistently sleeps 5 hour stretches at night. I love having the predictability of knowing when our baby is going to need to go for a nap, he often shows sleep signs right around the time that he is supposed to go and it is much easier to put him down now. The flexibility we have with this program is also great!

Sleeping through the night

The sleep program worked almost immediately. We loved that the schedule was easy to follow and there was a troubleshooting section for anything that could occur while trying to get our son to sleep. Our son started sleeping 8 hours a night within 3 or 4 days and now about a month later he is sleeping 12 hours every night. We are very happy with the program and would definitely recommend it to other parents.

Hopeful but not quite there yet

Unfortunately, I've found the app to be quite complicated to use. I'm a 35yo professional female, so usually I don't struggle to use tech, but as helpful as the information may be, I don't think it's presented properly in the app.Content is hard to find and pages contain way to much information!For busy mums who are sleep deprived, this is very overwhelming.I was hoping for a step-by-step method to follow, which I can see in the "program schedule" but it's annoying that troubleshooting notes aren't linkable through that program screen. For example, if I have the program open, so I can keep an eye on what time I'm supposed to wake bub, but then bub wakes early and I'm looking for advice on "what to do if the lunch nap goes wrong", I have to click around to many different pages to find troubleshooting notes, then read a copious amount of information, while bub is crying in the background. Not very user friendly.I also wish there was an option to tailor the program a bit, aside from changing the morning wake time. And have an integrated view of the statistics in the tracker so I can make connections between feeds, changes and sleeps.The one thing I do really like are the reminders that pop up for each event in the program and the prompts to let me know the schedule is changing as bub gets older.I'm still following the program and hoping to see more substantial results but ultimately feel it's been a lot of work digging for information thus far.But PLEASE fix the amount of content. It's important to communicate, but only if the user can actually consume it.

Hi Allira,Thanks so much for your review and your feedback. We are working on the amount of content in the app and making things easier to find.The troubleshooting info can now be accessed directly from the schedule on your home screen by clicking the wee pink 'troubleshooting icon' on whichever event you need help with.Thanks, Rhyanna

So thankful!

Excellent app, so glad I purchased. The detailed schedules have helped take the guesswork out of my day. I thought I was doing wake windows right, but turns out I was massively under-doing the wake windows for his age. But now, I feel confident my 5 month old son is getting the right amount of daytime sleep, AND he sleeps through the night most nights, with 1 feed. LittleOnes helped me navigate the dreaded 4-month regression with gentle strategies to teach self-settling. I loved that there was always a reason given for WHY the strategies would help with sleep. The detailed troubleshooting is awesome too - even when things weren’t going to plan (early wakes etc), I always felt equipped with what to do. Since starting LittleOnes, my bub can go to sleep on his own, without a fuss, and is so much happier in the day! Have recommended to friends already!

Sleep training is useless

I wanted so badly to love this app and have it work. But after having 4 children who didn't respond to any training program we implemented, I've come to believe babies sleeping through the night is the exception, not the norm. Also, you should really add a "didn't see improvement" option if you are seeking valid reviews and not just 4 and 5 star for your website.

Ridiculous how easy sleep can be

It’s great. I love it. It’s ridiculous how easy it can be. I’m so thankful for you, you can’t imagine. I see so many schedules for naps and awake times and they feel so wrong now and it makes sense we were having such troubles before using your app. I feel like i’m a professional when it comes to baby sleep thanks to the information provided. Loved the support I received when reaching out in the village.

Really works

I must say big Thank You from the bottom of my heart. My baby has always been a terrible sleeper, and then sleep regression at 3,5 months has made it 10 times worth. With my mental state shattered by 6 months while waiting for the sleep regression to end. Ive had sleep consultant over, Ive spoken to pediatric nurses. No one was of help, all I got was "continue doind what youre doing". It took me some time to find your app and Im glad that I happened to stumble on it! It really changed our lives and now my baby can self settle too! So THANK YOU!

Lifesaver

The app is so easy to use, the programs are great and takes the guesswork out of everything but the troubleshooting section is by far the best feature that I’ve found - things can (and will) go wrong and it’s so comforting to not have to figure out how to get back on track with the day on your own.

Gave my baby consistent sleep

The app is fairly easy to use and understand where everything is. Being able to just click a pink link in any articles to be taken to an explanation is very helpful. The sleeping & feeding schedule is easy to follow. The program is very flexible and understands that babies have all different kinds of days and provides solutions for even the worst days. My only issue is the downloadable content doesn't work. I click the download button and nothing happens. But I just open up the app when I need a quick refresher on the schedule. I will definitely be using this program for the long haul and any more babies in the future.

A great app

I have tried a few baby sleep apps and programs, this one so far worked best for us. Four stars only because I didn't end up following everything as required, I had to combine this with some other techniques I found useful for our family thru my own research. Overall a great app and they provide a lot of helpful information not only on baby sleep but on postpartum self-care as well!

Sleeping Soundly

My Little Girl is 11 weeks old and I have been using the Little Ones App since she was 2 weeks old. It took about a week for her to adjust and “learn to sleep” but since then we have both slept soundly. So many people advised me that a baby that young can’t follow a routine, I beg to differ, I feel she has thrived on the Little Ones routine and I am extremely impressed as a first time mama going into this with no idea what I was doing. I have purchased the toddler package to follow on to ensure my little one and I are adjusting as necessary.

My baby is now a happy baby!

I downloaded this app on day 1 of my daughters life but was very hesitant of using any sleep methods or a schedule. I thought she was too little for this and that I could figure out her sleep myself. But the more I researched online, the more lost I was, plus got some confusing and contradicting advice from friend and family (like "babies are absolutely fine sleeping in very noisy, bright environments"). My baby was sleeping well at night but only napping for 10 minutes at a time during the day. She was getting more and more fussy each day and needed to be held most of the time to stay calm. I literally didn't have time for anything and was exhausted. I think she was getting around 11 hours of sleep per day instead of recommended 16 but everyone told me she was doing fine, some babies are this way, she's gaining weight so it's OK etc. But I knew something wasn't right because she seemed unhappy, stressed, sad and unsettled most of the time. 2,5 months after her birth, I bought the Little Ones subscription. The first time I set up the sleeping environment suggested in the app and put her down for a nap, she slept 3 hours during the day and I cried all this time because I was just so exhausted and felt like something was finally right. I needed to adjust my overall lifestyle and there was a sleep adjustment period for her in the beginning (no crying it out though!) But she now sleeps in her own bed, wakes up once a night and day naps are on schedule. My partner and I have our evenings back, and 4+ hours free during the day when she's happily napping. My stress levels went down SIGNIFICANTLY (I was a wreck honestly) but what's most important, my baby is now so much happier! She is such a sweetheart, so chill and relaxed. So relaxed in fact that she seems to be able to fall asleep anywhere and can now nap even in broad daylight haha! I know there's sleep regressions coming our way and things won't always go to plan but I'm now trusting this app exclusively and not listening to anyone else's advice. I wish I got a subscription much sooner. Thank you Little Ones team!!!PS. There's some minor technical issues I've been having with the app but they helped me with them. Just wanted to mention though.

Love it!

Awesome baby sleep schedule! My babies 1 to 3 always had pretty bad sleep issues that never resolved until after 2years old. For baby number 4 my friend introduced me to little ones and I loved it. Now with baby 5 I decided to give the app a go and it’s been great. Takes the guess work out of baby’s schedules, something I always seem to struggle with. Definitely recommend it!

Would recommended to anyone

We purchased the Little Ones App when our little girl was only 4 weeks old as we were struggling to get her down for day sleeps and in return, we had inconsolable crying for hours on end at night, every night. Within one day of following the schedule set out for us on the Little Ones App, we seen improvements. Within one week our little girl was finally sleeping through the day and getting her to sleep at night took no longer than 30 mins compared to the hours we would spend previously. We have a much happier baby now and we are also happier parents!
