Nicky and Amanda started Little Ones because they believe that everyone deserves sleep. Unfortunately, when their own children were young, reliable sleep advice was quite hard to come by. This fuelled their desire to provide parents with the knowledge to better understand their own babies' sleep needs, empowering families to make positive changes.

When will I receive my Sleep or Nutrition 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.
Do your Sleep Programs involve 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.
What do I get in a Sleep Program?
Our Sleep Programs are accessed instantly upon purchase through our mobile app and via a customer login on our website.
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.
