Your baby deserves to be cuddled, rocked, held and loved – not just during the day, but during the night too.
Based on the modern research of Dr. Pamela Douglas & other medical professionals specialising in infant behaviour & sleep science, this shows you how to improve sleep for babies and children under 2 in a biologically appropriate way, whilst still allowing you to respond the way that feels most natural and intuitive to you.
It works by making 6 small, responsive changes to your day that when combined produce better sleep for 95% of families within a week.
Many parents find that ‘conventional’ sleep advice (i.e. advice that relies on behavioural changes – like encouraging self soothing, prescribing ‘wake windows’ etc) either doesn’t work, or leaves them stressed and anxious.
The thing is – sleep isn’t behavioural – It’s not something that can be ‘taught’.
Like eating and breathing, sleep is a natural & instinctive biological process.
And so while trying ideas like…
…letting them cry…
…sticking to strict routines…
…not picking them up…
…may work for some, the truth is that most babies will sleep better when you understand what’s causing your child’s need for sleep and work with it.
That’s why this program eliminates the stress, anxiety and crying that commonly associated with baby sleep programs.
We’re not changing the behaviour, we’re working with the biology.

These ‘old school’ methods revolve around the need to train baby to settle themselves rather than seek comfort from their caregivers, because it is ‘inconvenient’ when baby seeks us out in the night.
Instead, our Program works to preserve this nurturing bond & secure attachment between parent & baby while still improving sleep quality, in a way that is developmentally appropriate for each baby.
Unlike most of the ideas which are implemented in conventional sleep training, which are based on outdated research from the 1950’s our Program has been created based on the latest research into sleep science & infant development. Check out our Research Base here.
Do you feel like your days revolve around rushing to get home at a certain time because baby needs to nap?
With the Intuitive Program you aren’t locked in to a specific ‘plan’ built around awake windows, schedules & nap times, instead our programs’ 6 Elements fit naturally into your life – without ruling it!
ventional sleep specialists create plans which dictate the time at which you do certain things (such as naps) each day. These can result in a lot of stress, days tailored around nap times & a life that revolves around sleep!
We are one of the only sleep programs to offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee with our Support Upgrade Packages. We are 100% committed to making sure that you & your baby are better off thanks to our Program & if this is not the case we will happily refund your Program Fee in accordance with our Refund Policy.
The program is different from many others in that it is 100% biological & entirely scientific, which is why it works for such a huge majority of babies. It achieves improved nighttime sleep by synchronising baby’s Essential Sleep Factors and Circadian Rhythm. You will follow our 6 Elements to make simple changes to the way your baby fills their day. You will learn to tune in to your baby’s cues & allow them to naturally regulate the timing & length of the naps that they take. We show you how to integrate & implement these Elements in order to synchronise your baby’s nighttime sleep so that it better aligns with yours. You can then join the ranks of thousands of other parents & babies who are sleeping better & feeling more connected thanks to our Program!

The Program delivers biologically and developmentally supportive sleep so is suitable from birth onwards! The core units are designed primarily for babies between 3-24 months of age. The Program itself can still be used for newborns (where the focus is on establishing a healthy Circadian Rhythm rather than reducing wakings), older toddlers and children though; with the help of the modification guides which are included as part of the Program Resource Library.
We have surveyed hundreds of families in our tester groups & thousands of randomly-selected clients.
Once you start implementing all of the program Elements accurately & consistently 50% will see some sleep improvements within seven days, with 80% seeing considerable improvements within two weeks. 97% of participants see significantly improved nighttime sleep within 30 Days using our Program & with the assistance of our Bright Dream Team.
The Program is delivered via a series of 13 self-paced video units and accompanying guidebook resources.
The videos will take about an hour and a half for you to view. You then begin incorporating the 6 Elements of the Program into your daily life instantly!
General assistance, tips and advice are available to all clients within our amazing Sleep Program Community Group in the Bright App.
Should you need one-on-one troubleshooting assistance once you get started with the Program, a Support Package Upgrade can be purchased.
This includes lifetime access to one-on-one, on-demand troubleshooting assistance via email with your personal Dream Team Support Agent and 30 Days of eligibility for the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee per our Refund Policy.
Due to the very nature of the Program & how it uses our innate biological processes, it is highly likely that if you implement everything as we advise then you will see improvements in your baby’s sleep within 30 Days.
The exception here is if there is an underlying medical issue that may be contributing to the sleep disruptions. We encourage all of our clients to consult their doctors first to rule this out.
Periods of teething, illness or age-linked sleep regressions may also delay the improvements resulting from the Program. We cover these issues within our Resource Library content and recommend trying the Program for at least 30 Days to allow these phases to pass & give the Program the best possible chance to work.
If you’ve tried sleep consultants, sleeping devices, self settling, timed naps & other commonly believed rules, then you are just like us & a vast majority of our clients!
We spent a small fortune on all of the above before formulating this Program. We were thrilled to finally have figured out what worked so well for us & has now worked for thousands of others too! It is effective because the program harnesses the innate biological processes that we as humans all have, whereas most of the ‘sleep techniques’ commonly sold instead manipulate baby’s behaviour to silence them overnight.
Our Program doesn’t offer any specific advice for multiples. Though it can be effective, we do not generally recommend it if you hope that both babies’ will synchronise sleep and wake patterns in unison. As we do not prescribe time-based routines, this is not something that our Program can promise.
The program can be successful for children in daycare under certain circumstances.
The program was designed for babies who spend majority of their day in the care of people who understand the program and are willing to implement it. This could be one parent, two parents or a combination of parents and carers, but it relies on the carer being able to observe and interact closely with the child in order to implement a majority of the Elements.
Realistically I would not expect to see results from the program if baby is at daycare full time unless they were in a relatively small home-style care environment where the carer was able to familiarise themselves with the program and observe and respond to their cues quite consistently.
With this in mind I would recommend opting for the Support Package Upgrade once you get started, if you aren’t 100% sure whether it will suit your needs or work with your childcare arrangement. This is because the Support package includes one-on-one email assistance for as long as required to get the program working for you as well as eligibility for the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. This means that you can receive a full refund of the Program Fee if you find the program isn’t working for you 😊
This program was primarily designed for those experiencing disrupted overnight sleep to improve nighttime sleep quality, so day naps aren’t a focus of the program. With that in mind many of our clients find that everything synchronises & improves together once the program is established, but if your nighttime sleep is already excellent I wouldn’t necessarily advise making too many significant changes as this will likely be disrupted (at least initially) by doing so.
If baby is sleeping well overnight & is allowed to take naps as needed during the day then I would not be concerned that they aren’t getting the sleep that they need 😊
The Program can be implemented with all safe sleeping arrangements including safe co-sleeping, bedsharing or cots. We just require that clients familiarise themselves with the safe sleeping guidelines/recommendations relevant to their preferred sleeping arrangements & apply these prior to starting the Program.
Baby sleeping through the night is certainly achievable as a result of the Intuitive program, but it depends on your individual baby & their developmental readiness to do so; so we don’t guarantee a certain number of wakings overnight.
Generally the clients who find success with the program report at least a 70% reduction in wakings initially, with ongoing improvements continuing over time. Fussy periods such as teething, illness or sleep regressions can disrupt progress, but generally everything settles back down once these pass.
Our advice for transferring & transitioning to the cot is included in the Program Resource Library. Sleep location won’t impact the efficacy of the Program so our actual videos don’t cover this specifically.
Even though it isn’t a focus of the Program many of our clients find that baby is considerably easier to transfer since implementing everything as they are generally sleeping more solidly & are easier to get down to sleep.
Our program is based on a pool of research which includes that of the wonderful Dr Pamela Douglas, who is the founder of Australian organisation Possums. This is the same research used for the Possums Approach so at the core it modifies similar variables & may not prove helpful if you have previously tried the Possums program.
We have an excellent working relationship with Possums & donate a percentage of our profits back to their organisation in order to further their research into infant health & development.
