Sleep School

We believe sleep training should align with your parenting.

Get your child to bed in 10 mins & sleeping through the night, using a responsive approach.

Being a sleep deprived parent is tough.

Don't want to do cry-it-out

You know sleep is important, but you also don't want to do cry-it-out like a lot of people try to recommend.

Exhausted & running on empty​

When you don't get enough sleep, everything else in life feels impossible. Everything becomes mare difficult.

Don't know who to trust​

Everyone has a conflicting opinion, (and a PDF that they want to sell you). You don't know who to trust, or who to turn to.

The problem is that traditional sleep training is outdated and can be harsh. This leaves parents feeling stuck, with no way to get their family the sleep they need. 

Like you, we knew there had to be a better way.

Batelle Mini

Your baby is 3-5 months. You need more sleep (maybe going back to work soon), and want to make sure you set everyone up for success.

Batelle Babies

Your baby is 6-12 months. You may have tried other methods before. You need more sleep, but also want to make sure you’re promoting a secure attachment at this critical time.

Toddlers & preschoolder

Your child is over 12 months old and younger than 5 years. You want to build solid communications and bonds at night as well as in the daytime. You’re worried sleep is effecting your child’s growth or development

the data says it all

Before & After

Longer, deeper and more restorative sleep for the whole family. 

Before Sleep School

Here's a snapshot of a child two weeks before they started Sleep School. In addition to the multiple night wake-ups, you'll notice that the child experiences very little deep sleep, with irregular and short sleep cycles interrupted by wakings.

After Sleep School

This snapshot was taken three months after graduating Sleep School. Here, night wake-ups are non-existent and the toddler is sleeping through the night, with much more consistent and regular sleep cycles. It's also worth noting the lower heart rate, suggesting a much calmer and comfortable night for the child.

Your journey

From Exhausted to Empowered

Hear from other parents just like you.

They started off anxiousexhausted and worried that if they did cry-it-out that it would negatively impact child. 

They left feeling confident, refreshed and proud of the journey they went on. 

Reviews from Batelle Families

More than a year later, we continue to highly recommend Batelle!

Sleep training is never easy, but having Batelle there to help us through was what made us go from unpredictable bedtimes and 5-6 wake ups a night, to consistent bedtimes and sleeping through the night. After two weeks in the program, we went on a long vacation that eventually derailed much of our progress but when we got home and reached out to the Batelle team, they got us back on track and supported us back to our goals. They keep you part of the program and continue to provide resources without making you feel rushed. I was concerned that if we didn't reach our goals in 2 weeks that we would be out of luck, much to my surprise, we did reach our goals after those 2 weeks and then when we needed the extra help, they were still there for us. Great program and great people. Be ready to commit to the program when you start, it's definitely all-in to achieve your goals.

Worth Every Penny

Worth every penny. You have to trust the process and really commit - but once you do, it truly works. We tried what felt like everything, including a lot of approaches marketed as 'gentle sleep training' that were just cry it out with a nicer name. The Batelle method truly is unique, gentle, and teaches sleep as a skill rather than a one time learned behavior. We went through both Batelle babies and the sleep school program, and couldn't have been more impressed or grateful for the support and kindness we received throughout both processes. The method absolutely requires more time, patience, and work than alternatives out there, but getting to our ultimate goal of sleeping through the night in a way that I actually felt good about was absolutely worth it. Couldn't recommend more highly.

From rocking to sleep to champ independent sleeper

Our sweet baby, Beau, loved to only sleep on us for naps and night. Batelle helped us first solve the nights, and then transition to a crib, and then naps. Beau now sleeps 7:30pm to 7:30am with an occasional visit to settle him in crib, but we never have to rock him anymore. He trusts his crib and loves it! His naps are great too. We were not one of the worst cases but Beau is now a fantastic sleeper, and we owe a lot to Batelle.

We are the leading Sleep School for children 0-6 years old:

We believe every family deserves to have optimal sleep to function at their best. We also believe that fostering a secure attachment between parent and child at night really matters as it is a wonderful opportunity to teach children fundamental lessons that help with every aspect of their lives. And every parent deserves to have the knowledge and tools to be able to have this.

As such, we are pioneering a different approach to children’s sleep, based on building trust, connection and engagement
 We understand children’s sleep better than anyone, having helped over 5000 families, with the toughest of sleep issues
 We’ve taken these learnings, and create personalized plans for every child, parent and family, tailored to age, sleep issues, medical conditions, parental preferences, child temperament, environment (eg. room sharing with sibling) and other variables (eg. daycare). This gives you and your child what you need in order to see success and get more sleep

👉 Read here about the growing movement of parents choosing a responsive approach to their child’s sleep.

No, we promote a responsive approach to sleep that is focused on fostering connection and keeping engagement high between parent and child.

We see sleep as another part of parenting that is a great opportunity to reinforce how much you love them, provide reassurance that they are safe and teach lean into the difficult challenges with them so that they can learn to be more resilient on their own as well.  

Yes, we are so confident our approach and program will work for your family that we have a 30-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. 

This is about far more than sleep. We teach you how to engage with your child in a responsive way that focuses on their fundamental need to feel safe at night. Because of this, we’ve consistently have over a 90% success rate (up to 97.3%) and have worked with the toughest of sleep issues. You will also have 60 days of coaching access to our sleep experts, so that you are never left guessing.

However, we also have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee if you feel that the program is not for you.

Yes, Batelle now accepts both HSA and FSA payments at check-out. You will get a Letter of Medical Necessity within minutes, that should you need it, you can give to your insurance provider.  

You can read more about this in our HSA/FSA blog

Our flagship program ($1500), is now waitlist only. We’re only currently offering our $450 program, which has exactly the same approach/method, is built on the same data set and has the same level of personalization. The difference is the type of support: on the $450 program we offer 60-days of chat support (M-F) with our experts (ample time to work through the program), not 24/7 coaching.

Yes, we cover all things sleep. You’ll work on naps and night-sleep separately though, as we want to make sure your child is getting enough sleep through this transition period by balancing night and day sleep.

There are two key differences:
1. We work on the fundamentals of teaching a child to feel trusting and safe when it comes to sleep. Parents are taught to engage and respond at all times, which takes more work than disengaging (eg. cry-it-out or Ferber), but provides much more substantive, long-term results.
2. We have coached over 5000 families, with the toughest of sleep issues, moment-by-moment and have unparalleled insight into how to solve sleep issues in all different types of children, parents, environments and circumstances. It’s this understanding we use to personalize our programs to meet a family’s unique needs.

You will get a combination of videos, video demos, audio and written material. You can access everything via your personal App, where you’ll have step-by-step plan that makes it easy to follow and track progress, as well as chat with the team when you have a question. 

Absolutely, we work with a lot of children with strong-willed temperaments. The key thing to understand is when a child is fighting bedtime, or gets really upset or angry when you leave the room, it’s coming from a place of fear. They feel most safe around you. And when you leave, they haven’t yet learned that they are still safe and that you are still there to protect them. When a child has a strong reaction, it’s their “fight” instinct kicking in, in an effort to keep you in the room/ prevent going to sleep etc. The way to address this is through love, reassurance and showing them that they have nothing to be fearful of.

If your little one needs a lot of reassurance and is sensitive, then we’ll make sure you take a more gentle, slower approach. For these little ones, using a responsive approach will give you the best results as it allows you to nurture them while also helping them learn to be comfortable independently.

Yes! Any and all caregivers you want can be added to the App, and will all be able to see 1) the same personalized content and 2) the same chat conversations with our experts. This means everyone is on the same page at all times. We also are happy to coach any additional caregivers as part of the program.

Children with sensory processing disorders or ADHD? Absolutely. We have great success with our families who come for help. 

Children who are teething or going through a regression? Yes, we will adapt your plan accordingly to make allowances for these situations. It will likely take a bit longer, but you can certainly get to the results. 

Multiple children /twins? Yes, it does. However, we do advise you to either have two caregivers carrying out Sleep School, or to put one child through the program after the other.

Moms who are breastfeeding? Absolutely. We are breastfeeding and attachment-parenting friendly. We’ll work with you to ensure you’re still able to breastfeed in any capacity you seek, and we’ll help you wean your child at night if appropriate/desired. If your child still requires a night feed, we’ll structure your program to make allowances for this.

Co-sleeping? Co-sleeping is used to describe both bed-sharing and room-sharing:

  • Room-sharing is fully supported by Batelle’s method.
  • Bed-sharing: we understand this is a personal choice, and works for a lot of families. As it’s against AAP guidelines, we don’t give advice on how to continue bed-sharing, but are happy to help you transition away from it. If you are wanting to continue bed-sharing, you will be able to do certain parts of the program, which will improve sleep and teach you all the fundamentals of how to engage and promote a secure attachment. The final steps in your plan you can save for later when you decide to transition away from bedsharing.

Yes. At Batelle, we like to work directly with pediatricians to help provide patients and their families with the best and most personalized service possible – you are welcome to have your pediatrician get in touch! Pediatricians also provide the means to help Sleep School be elegible for your insurance/FSA/HSA coverage. Visit our pediatrician page to learn more

If you are part of our flagship product ($1500) you can come back free of charge for any help with regressions. If you are on our $450 program, you’ll have access to content that will coach you through the regressions, but if you wanted more chat support, you’d need to purchase an additional month’s access to the team. Please email [email protected] for more info on this.

We are a currently in the (long!) process of being awarded FDA approval. Batelle is a fully accredited Better Business Bureau member.
