SUPPORT- SLEEPY APP
Why was the Baby Sleep School App created?
The Baby Sleep School App was created after years of runaway success with the Baby Sleep School online sleep programs. The idea was born when founders Marissa Wallis and Amelia Lamont were struggling to get their own babies to sleep; they went the extra mile, both became qualified sleep consultants and started Baby Sleep School.
Together, Marissa and Amelia have helped thousands of families worldwide achieve sleep success with their popular online downloadable sleep programs.
But – they wanted to do more to help and support mums! In addition to offering many products and services to help teach babies great sleep habits, they have created an holistic approach to sleep training, with a focus on supporting mums to assist with their baby’s sleep. The Sleepy App is the key; one platform with all the information you need to achieve sleep success – easy, quick and ready to help at all times!
Once you purchase a Baby Sleep School program (Newborn, 3-12 months, 12-24 months and Toddler) from our website, you will be sent a link to download the Sleepy App for free. You can then access your sleep program guide on the App, making finding that one priceless nugget of information that will help, that much easier.

Why should I pay for the additional monthly subscription fee? What extra help am I getting?
The Sleepy App is designed to be a simple way to access all your baby sleep requirements from one platform. The subscription fee is based on providing you with additional functions to support you through sleep training your baby, including the community forum, chat, additional resources and wellness hub.
The difference between a sleep program and the Sleepy App is that the app allows parents to access the program through the app and pay for additional features and services if you require more support. You can also purchase programs through at the app, as your baby grows and develops.
The additional features included in a subscription include:
The Community Forum is a virtual chat room; it is similar to our wonderful Facebook community with more one-on-one support. Certified sleep consultants will be available during peak times to answer your questions and assist you throughout the day when things don’t quite go to plan! Don’t underestimate the power of community!
The Wellness hub was created to provide Mums with the tools to take some time out for themselves. We are HUGE believers in the benefits of a healthy body and healthy mind, especially for mums. The benefits of exercise include better sleep, improved memory and higher energy levels; it also improves mental health and helps to protect women from conditions like anxiety and depression. Currently in Australia, as many as 1 in 3 women will experience anxiety in their lifetime, and being active can serve as a powerful tool for preventing and managing symptoms associated with this condition.
Remember – it is NOT selfish to prioritise your health!
When it comes to health and fitness advice, it’s important to get the right advice from a qualified professional – that’s why we are working with Renee McGeoch, a qualified post-partum fitness instructor and absolute gem, to deliver safe and effective exercises. Our movement sessions will be mainly interval training and include activation and mobility exercises.
Our yoga and meditation classes are beautiful and relaxing, allowing deep stretching and breathing for a slower pace. Our yoga instructor, the gorgeous Beth has created some incredible videos for you to access 24/7 and work at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.
If you’re not sure if you are ready for these kinds of activities, please consult a health professional before starting.
These are like the bonus track on your favourite album…. The Additional resources section was created because after years of helping families, we realised there some questions we heard over and over. We kept track of them over the years and now we have answered all your pressing questions in the Additional resources section of the Sleepy App. Broken down into topics, these FAQ are a game-changer – you get access to some in-depth, step-by step knowledge from our experts.
The topics included in are:

- 2 - 4 years
- Sleep safety
- Settling techniques
- Sleep regressions
- Developmental leaps
- Your mental health

What are the benefits of sleep training your baby and the science of baby sleep?
Babies and toddlers thrive on sleep and routine – they really do, we promise!
During the deep states of sleep, blood supply to the muscles is increased, energy is restored, tissue growth and repair occur, and important hormones are released for growth and development.
Benefits of sleep
When babies are sleeping well, they are SO much happier all round! They feed better and their overall temperament is calm and happy. Sleep is so important for babies and children to meet their developmental needs.
- Most of baby’s brain development happens during sleep: literally. This is when the connections between the left and right hemispheres of their brains are being formed.
- Brain synapses are formed during sleep: more than 1,000,000 million neural connections are formed per second during their first 3 years – isn’t that amazing?!
- Memories are formed and stored: your baby’s brain stores what they’ve learned that day during sleep.
- Lack of sleep can cause bigger problems down the road: cognitive issues, developmental delays, etc. can sometimes be linked to not getting enough sleep.
Besides the impact sleep has on your baby’s growing brain, it also impacts other aspects of your baby’s life, such as mood, eating, and behaviour; this is why an overtired baby quickly turns into a fussy baby.
A baby who gets enough sleep is going to generally be more agreeable, eat better (which is important for development!), less fussy, easier to soothe, more responsive, etc. A well-rested baby is a happy baby!
Some of the benefits of sleep are not actually baby though – when baby sleeps well, everyone sleeps well! A well-rested baby can often result in well rested, and more resilient parents! Poor sleep can affect every part of an adult’s life, and make life so much harder than it needs to be. We genuinely believe, and have seen, that good sleep makes for much happier families and especially mums – as well as beautiful, happy, bouncing babies. We love to see it!
From the experts
“Sleep is important for brain health in general. If you don’t get enough sleep, you can see negative effects on attention and emotional regulation.”
