Batelle is so much more than sleep training. It is access to a team of 35+ sleep experts for up to 5 years, who walk you step-by-step through your personalized plan. It is the confidence in knowing your child is getting the sleep they need to develop and grow. It is how you get your nights back.
In fact, we are so confident in our ability to solve the toughest of sleep issues that we guarantee our results of a 5-minute bedtime and uninterrupted nights. Batelle works with some of the most notable scientific and health advisers in the space, including the Chief Clinical Information Officer at Microsoft, UCL Honorary Fellow and pediatrician, and the former CEO of Oura Ring.
Ultimately, if you succeed, we succeed.

Daytime sleep and nighttime sleep are inherently linked.
During Sleep School, you will focus on nighttime sleep directly before addressing naps. This is because nighttime sleep is more regulated by circadian rhythms and is usually more consistent than daytime naps.
Once they are sleeping well at night, this will make naps much easier to handle and they can be focused on directly. Naps are addressed on Step 7 of Batelle Sleep School.
By establishing a consistent bedtime routine and helping your child to learn to fall asleep on their own at night, you can help them develop healthy sleep habits and set them up for success with daytime sleep as well.
Every child has a different plan, which adapts over time as we learn more about how a child is responding.
Step 1: Get a personalized plan built on our diagnosis. This plan is based on your child's age, sleep issues, any medical considerations, and temperament. It is further tailored to your goals and lifestyle to fit your family on a day-to-day basis.
Step 2: Get unlimited daytime coaching & feedback. You will work through your plan with our experts supporting step-by-step. Adaptions are made as you go through, as we learn what is working best for you and your child.
Step 3: Real-time coaching for bedtimes & wake-ups as needed. You have access to in-the-moment coaching so that you never have a question unanswered. This also helps us adapt your plan live as we learn more about how your child responds.
Step 4: Get proactive guidance going forwards and once you have reached your initial goals. We know that things change. But, your child's great sleep doesn't have to. We'll help navigate developmental leaps & regressions, moving house, sickness, starting daycare - you name it.
Step 5: Get subsequent assessments & coaching as needed. If you fall off course, we'll get you back on track. Think of this as sleep insurance for the next 5 years. We have you covered.
No, Batelle does not employ the cry-it-out method.
While the cry-it-out and Ferber methods primarily aim to alter a child's sleep habits, they might not always address the fundamental reasons a child struggles with sleep, such as their need for security, or help them learn the skills necessary to settle to sleep in new ways.
In contrast, the Batelle method is a responsive approach that emphasizes the significance of a caregiver's co-regulation in promoting sleep and resilience as children are supported in learning new ways of settling to sleep more independently.
- Facilitate effortless bedtimes – 5 minutes or less (should you choose).
- Ensure your child sleeps through the night.
- Adopt a non cry-it-out approach.
- Provide access to experts for up to 5 years.
- Effortless bedtimes.
- Sleeping through the night.

No - Batelle operates internationally.
Depending on your particular situation, you will need some/all of the following:
- Two-way baby monitor
- Sleep light (e.g. HatchLight)
- Bluetooth speaker
- Ring Camera (optional)
This is entirely up to you. If all caregivers are able to join the training, you won’t need to introduce them to the method after Sleep School is complete, and it’s always nice to have some additional support. However, it’s not a problem if this is not possible, and the Batelle team can support you to integrate another caregiver at a future point.

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-theory 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 however, is against AAP guidelines for sleep safety. So while we respect this as a cultural and family lifestyle choice, the method will not be helpful fro families who want to continue bed-sharing. If you want to transition your child to their own bed, we'd be happy to provide guidance.
