Taking this first step to improving your little one's sleep is the most important thing you'll ever do for your child.
Because, imagine if you could finally put an end to sleep deprivation!
Imagine how it would feel to have a pro-napper, a calm settled baby and a good night's sleep...
How many times have you said this to yourself, your partner, your friends? Convincing yourself that your little one's poor sleep is just a stage, just a phase, just teething, or a growth spurt or a sleep regression, or or or...
The truth is that unless you take steps to help your baby or toddler develop great sleep habits, their poor sleep, that "phase", won't end. They won't simply grow out of it.
It can feel as though you've tried everything to get your little one to sleep better. You've spent hundreds on swaddles and comforters and nightlights and aromatherapy and nothing has worked.
It can be really disheartening.
We hear you, loud and clear, because we're parents too and we've been in your shoes.
This is why we spent years developing our company and creating our Sleep Programs - to help families like yours, like our own, shake off the effects of sleep deprivation once and for all in a nurturing, evidence-based way.
We believe that everyone deserves sleep. We know how crucial decent sleep is, not only to a baby's health and development, but also to the dynamics of a family, to a mother's mental health, to the functioning of relationships.
And so we wrote a sleep manual.
Our Sleep Programs have been researched and written using the most up to date information and methods on the complex world of infant sleep.
When we're sleep deprived, everything is harder; parenting, our relationships, even day to day tasks and running the household. If your little one is sleeping well, so are you and this means you're able to be a more confident, relaxed parent and really enjoy this journey you're on.
Sleep is so important for you too.
Age appropriate daily schedules to guide you through your little one's naps and feeds throughout the day.
Not every day goes to plan! This is why we have detailed troubleshooting for when things go awry.
Knowledge is power right? And our Programs give you all the information you need to understand your little one's sleep, making you an expert in their sleep needs and behaviour.
We have a custom-built support village in which thousands of parents as well as our own Certified Sleep Consultants are available to help you day and night.
You'll be able to have a break while your baby is napping for decent lengths. Take the opportunity to have a relaxing shower, put your feet up or get on top of household tasks, because YOU are important too.
When your baby goes down to sleep easily at 7PM, you'll have the whole evening to yourself. Spend time with your hubby or relax on the couch with the TV on - you choose. You've got time and THIS relationship matters as well.
Knowing when your baby will need to nap is the easiest way to plan your day. You can organise outings for when you know your baby will be awake or plan to do their naps while you're on the go. The certainty of your day is very freeing.
You deserve sleep. We all do. With improvements to your baby's sleep comes better sleep for you. Start feeling well rested and ditch that shadow of sleep deprivation once and for all.
Baby Sleep Program
I started using this program when my bub was 3 months old, she's now 4.5 months old. I was getting exhausted fighting her to go to sleep. It would take up to an hour of pacing, rocking and her screaming to get her to sleep. I got this program and it literally changed our lives the first day!! We have benefited so much on this program and I've found it really easy to follow, understand and implement. She's started sleeping through the night from 7-7 and sometimes doesn't even wake for a feed. I can't thank you ladies enough for sharing your science. I now know how to understand and read my baby.
Baby Sleep Program
This program has helped us immensely. Organizing our day sleep has improved our nights! My 4 month old now sleeps from 7:30pm to 3am without waking! He is getting quality sleep throughout the day at the right time and is a happy baby all around! The advice and swift responses in the village are what really set this program apart - I don’t feel alone and know that I have support.
Baby Sleep Program
I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is struggling with building a schedule for their little one. The program has really helped us build a routine, that works, and regain some control. Prior to the program my little one only had 40 minute naps during the day, now she has a two hour nap at lunch time which is both important for my LO but also important for me, as I’m able to do some well needed mummy things or take a decent nap myself. Now we are moving on to the nutrition program. Weaning here we come!

The comprehensive advice in our Sleep Programs has been thoroughly researched and cross-checked by professionals including paediatricians and sleep neurophysiologists. We only use evidence-based information because we know you want to use the best advice for your baby.
We have now helped over 150,000 families worldwide achieve better sleep. Among our customers are doctors, paediatricians, nurses, midwives and other medical professionals who trust our advice and methods.
With our Sleep Programs you can guarantee you're getting the best and most accurate information for your little one's age. Our Programs change as your baby grows, so you're always on top of sleep regressions and nap transitions, and therefore far better prepared.
All our customers gain access to our global support community, the Little Ones Village, housed in our mobile app. In this village, thousands of parents as well as our own certified Sleep Consultants are available to help you day and night, because we know how hard it can be trying to work things out alone.
Our Sleep Programs are accessed instantly upon purchase through our mobile app and via a customer login on our website or you can go to www.littleonesprograms.com . 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 are all about when to offer naps and feeds/solids etc)
- 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.
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.
There is no way to guarantee the effectiveness of each individual baby or toddler due to outside factors which may detract from results and it can be hard work for some babies to dramatically change their sleep habits. Our Programs are not an overnight miracle fix, but they are designed and proven to lock in excellent sleep habits with your baby for years to come. If however, you don’t see improvements with your baby’s sleep, we do offer a refund as per the refund policy here: https://www.littleones.co/pages/refund-policy

We believe it is really helpful to start setting up good sleep habits from early on if you can. This doesn't mean you're forcing your newborn baby into a rigid sleep program, rather you're helping them establish and regulate natural nap and sleep patterns that will mean your baby is settled and happy because they're getting enough sleep at the right times.
At first glance yes, our Sleeping and Feeding Schedules do seem very time specific, however this is to give you the most guidance around your baby’s nap and feed times each day. You could say our Schedules give you a goal for your day, however this is extremely flexible and adaptable to the needs of your family. If for example your baby wakes earlier in the day, you can simply move all their naps forwards to compensate - you don't have to stretch them when they're tired just to meet scheduled nap times. You can use the schedule more as a guide if you’d prefer, to know the perfect amount of awake time and when naps should be and if things start to go awry you can always come back to the schedule a bit more closely to troubleshoot the problem.
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.
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.
Ultimate Sleep Program
As new mother I found everything so overwhelming - so much different advice on how to care and put my little one to sleep. I was advised to let baby sleep as long as they like in the day, do not wake baby up as they won’t grow! Etc etc. Like this I found my little one partying the whole night long while sleeping most of the day. I was beginning to get frustrated and was already very exhausted from the difficult labour I had gone through. Since following the programme we have a perfect night sleep. This means I can get chores done have some me time and a good night sleep. I recommended this programme to all my friends and family and will definitely use it for my future babies.
Newborn Sleep Program
This programme has made a massive difference to our lives! Our son has gone from waking up every 1.5-2 hours to sleeping on average 9-10 hours straight a night and sleeping in his own crib for all naps. I feel like I have got some independence back and little things like having dinner with my husband every night and being able to do a work out while he has a morning nap have done wonders for my sanity and mood!
Ultimate Sleep Program
My three year old naturally fell into a routine that worked for us, so I was expecting the same from my newborn. I was so wrong. She was sleeping all day and then was up most of the night. I read her sleep cues wrong and I got her awake periods wrong. I kept thinking things would get better on their own but of course they didn’t, I had to make some changes but didn’t know what. I saw a few ads from Little Ones on Facebook and after another bad night bought the program thinking what have I got to lose. Things changed for the better very quickly. I bought the program when my daughter was 9 weeks old and saw improvements in a matter of days. It took a couple of weeks for all sleeps to fall into place. She also became a much more happier and relaxed baby from following the routine. The support from the ‘village’ is excellent. The resources are great and the program is very simple to follow. I’m very pleased to have bought this program that supports me (and our family) as my baby’s needs change.
