Frequently Asked Questions

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

✅ We’re 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 every parent and child what they need in order to see success and get more sleep
✅ We are one of the only programs offering foundational, proactive support that helps avoid sleep issues altogether and gives a child the best start in sleep possible.

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

Batelle Beginnings was designed for parents of newborns in the last trimester of pregnancy up to the first 3 months post-birth. We know that many parents are overwhelmed in those first few months. When is the earliest you can start creating positive sleep associations? What can you do to introduce a new sibling to the older ones? Should I wake my baby up from a nap?

Every child is different, and parents were complaining of the endless internet searches they weren’t sure they could trust. It’s overwhelming! Enter Batelle Beginnings- designed as an accessible way to gain the knowledge you need as a parent. 

No, we only teach responsive approaches to sleep that focus on fostering the connection and keeping engagement high between parent and child. We know that sleep is a time of vulnerability for a child, and our belief is that how parents engage with their children during these vulnerable times, has the capacity to teach children fundamental life skills and instil a sense of confidence in them that translates to all other areas of life.

You can add additional caregivers to the app free of charge.

Absolutely. We are breastfeeding-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 if that’s your goal. 

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.

As we said above- no question is too small for our team! Please email us at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.

More than you can imagine

You are wonderful. You were our anchor during those impossible early days, over-the top, out-of-your-way, incredible listeners, and then, miraculously, you turned our stories into actionable, how-do-they-do-it miracle fixes for everything we threw at you, because you were kind and merciful enough to link every problem under the sun and moon back to sleep. I can’t thank you enough.

1-3 months old

As first time parents, we were looking for research-based guidance for creating a healthy sleep foundation from newborn stage on. Batelle provides personalized care plus sequential asynchronous lessons that build on each other and make sense. They really listen and help you with your individual goals. The method is always respectful and responsive to baby’s expressed needs. Our 3 month old trusts his sleep space and routine. He goes to sleep peacefully, eats once during the night, and wakes up smiling each morning. We 100% recommend Batelle.

Batelle is AMAZING!

We are beyond thrilled with our experience with Batelle Sleep School. We now have more tools in our tool kit to support our son during overnight sleep and naps in his crib! With Batelle’s assistance we increased our confidence to create and support a safe, trusted, sleep space for our son as he began his independent sleeping journey.
