The FAQs of Life

You’ll have lifetime access to the course. If your baby isn’t born yet, we recommend watching Baby Sleep School before she’s born—you’ll have the basics down, and you’re going to have less time when the baby is here. But the nice thing about baby sleep online training is that you’ll be able to come back and reference any time.

The majority of Baby Sleep School is focused on strategies and techniques you can use to teach your baby to be a great sleeper during the critical 4-12 month age-range. So, if your baby is less than 12 months old, you’ll find lots of value.

Baby Sleep School also teaches strategies that will set your child up to be a lifelong great sleeper.

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.

There’s nothing to return, no hoops to jump through — just shoot us an email ([email protected]), we’ll take care of the rest.

        I can’t say that this course can replace sleep consultant, but it definitely is very helpful and has a lot of information about infant sleep basics. Definitely very helpful for new parents!

        Coming into the kid thing blind you quickly realize how much you don’t know. Besides tips on how to get your mini me to sleep, more than anything this course helped me realize what was “normal” sleep behavior and what wasn’t. Although we sincerely valued the course, after falling short with baby sleep tactics, we ultimately hired a sleep consultant which was very helpful and realized how much everything in sleep school really does have to play in concert with each other. Love the aim- Dads (but not exclusive of all interested parents) who just want some plain language on how to best care for their new edition. Nice one fellas.
