The FAQs of Life

How long do I have to complete the course?

You’ll have lifetime access to the course but, the real clock on you is your baby’s due date. You can still get value from the course after your baby is born, but we strongly recommend you complete it ahead of time—firstly, there’s key info about the pre-birth time and the actual birth, secondly, you aren’t going to have a whole lot of free time afterward.

Can I add Baby Sleep School to my registry?

If you’re using Babylist, just use their bookmark bar tool to add Baby Sleep School (be sure to enter the price.)

Can I give the course as a gift?

Absolutely. Gifting Baby Sleep School is a great way to tell your husband/boyfriend/son-in-law he should be terrified about sleep after the baby comes (but also offer something to do about it). Just sign up as yourself, email us ([email protected]) and we’ll transfer the membership to him.

My baby’s already born, should I take the course?

Much of Baby Sleep School will be helpful and relevant if your baby is 1-4 months old and has not yet started sleep training, but not all of it. Seeing as you’ve already probably purchased gear, you may find less value in that lesson.

What if I’m unhappy with the course?

We’ll build a gigantic pillow fort and go in there and cry, probably. But, if you’re unhappy for any reason, just let us know, we’ll refund you. We offer a 30-day no-questions asked money-back guarantee.

What happens if I need help or have a question?

We’re here for you. [email protected] We can’t answer medical questions, but your pediatrician can.

What payment options do you offer? Is there a payment plan?

We offer all major forms of credit card. At this time we can only accept payment in U.S. dollars. You can pay all at once, or split your course purchase into 4 equal monthly payments.
