Are you struggling with your baby's sleep & have either tried all the 'conventional' sleep training methods, or simply cannot bear to have your baby cry to sleep?
Over 95% of our parents report improved sleep and less stress within 2 weeks of implementing the program.
Hi! I'm Lucy & I'm the creator of The Intuitive Baby Sleep Program. I live in the beautiful Western Australia with my husband & two sons. I formulated this sleep program after months of struggling with my youngest one's sleep & feeling very uncomfortable with the persistent advice to delay responding to his cries because he needed to 'learn to self settle'.
In the past year alone I've helped thousands of modern parents free themselves from the shackles of 'Sleep Training stress' and get back to enjoying rest and connection with their baby, in the most evidence-based and developmentally and biologically supportive way possible!
It's completely normal to feel drained and on edge when your baby wakes frequently overnight - but there are things you can do to help your little one establish healthy sleep patterns, while still maintaining the connection and intuitive response missing from Sleep Training methods.

About The Program
The Intuitive Baby Sleep Program is a modern way to improve the sleep of your baby, based entirely on science & instinct. Designed based on the research of Dr. Pamela Douglas & other medical professionals specialising in infant behaviour & sleep science, The Intuitive Program works by changing how you structure your day & respond to baby's cues.
You will not be doing any 'training' to change baby's behaviour. You will not be locked in to specific nap times throughout the day. You will not be delaying your own responses when baby seeks comfort in order to encourage them to self settle before they would naturally. This is why there is no crying involved & also why it works for such a huge majority of babies (& parents!).
The key to achieving these goals is the synchronisation of several critical biological processes - what we call the 'Essential Sleep Factors'.
What Are The Essential Sleep Factors & Why Are They Important?
All human bodies (regardless of age) naturally decide when to sleep based on important primary biological processes (which we refer to as the Essential Sleep Factors).
These factors are both internal signals the brain gives when it observes the body needs rest, as well as cues taken from the environment.
In newborns and young babies, these factors have yet to properly establish themselves. This is because they have come from an environment where such biological processes were simply not necessary!
Without our bodies responding in synch to internal and external cues, our sleep patterns become disrupted (we experience this ourselves on a small scale with jet lag)!
While the erratic, uncoordinated sleep patterns we see in babies are often influenced by a variety of factors (teething, developmental leaps, pain or discomfort are frequent contributors), it is these biological factors that are the most important for establishing healthy sleep patterns.
And when these processes are working together (i.e. synchronised), babies - and adults! Can start enjoying healthier, biologically and developmentally supportive sleep.
What The Modern Research Shows
Over the past 50 years, there has been a LOT of research into sleep - and we know a lot more than we used to about what causes sleep to occur.
For example, we know that some still-common beliefs pushed by Sleep Training programs (such as the need for age-determined 'wake windows') are not supported by science.
Our Program is totally different, in that it was developed with a solid foundation in quality Modern scientific research. You can view our Research Base by tapping here.
All of our guidebooks are documents are full in-text referenced, allowing you to fact-check our recommendations every step of the way.
The Problem With Sleep Training
For those that have tried sleep training and found it didn't work, you'll now likely start to have an understanding as to why - sleep is largely a matter of biology, NOT behavioural training.
It is biologically normal for babies to wake overnight!
However, there is a larger issue that you may have noticed.
Depending on age, your little one is likely to wake overnight anyway.
All sleep training appears to achieve is to teach your baby not to bother seeking comfort - which is the complete opposite of what most parents would aspire to.
Rather than prioritising what is biologically and developmentally appropriate for each baby's unique needs, Sleep Training favours the use of comfort deprivation training to silence baby overnight.
A Better, Stress-Free Alternative
There is a slow revolution starting to occur around the world.
Parents are starting to understand that the beliefs and culture surrounding baby sleep (particularly in Western countries) are outdated and are searching for something better...
One where the focus is on following and supporting the developmental needs of each individual baby, and that as a result of doing away with rigid schedules and the worry of 'doing the wrong thing,' actually completely transforms what many parents find an incredibly stressful, anxious time.

Do These Biological Processes Mean My Baby Will 'Sleep Through the Night'
If you're looking for the magic recipe which will result in your baby 'Sleeping Through the Night' then our Program may not be the right fit for you...
While many of our clients' report that their baby does sleep through as a result of our Program, this isn't actually the goal that the Program was designed to achieve.
Instead, our Program works to deliver sleep improvements that are biologically and developmentally appropriate for your baby at that point in time. For some this means sleeping all night long, for others, this means still waking occasionally to feed overnight.

On the 3rd night after putting the videos into practice baby is waking every 3 hours.
That’s a huge change for us and I’m so thankful!
I have hope that it will keep getting better."

Our Intuitive Program vs Sleep Training
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.
