4-24 Months Sleep Learning Essentials Video Course

a baby learning to sleep with the help of an online course | The Peaceful Sleeper

Every baby can get better sleep through sleep learning.

“Sleep Learning” is teaching your baby the skills of independent sleep. It means working WITH your baby, in their zone of proximal development, and gradually releasing your support and interventions at a pace that works for you and your baby. Wherever you are in your baby’s sleep journey, the goal is to lovingly provide strategies to guide your baby to independence and better sleep.

Our 4-24 month course is the most comprehensive and flexible course on the market!

Giving your little one the gift of sleep is one of the most beneficial things you can ever do for them. Good sleep helps your baby develop physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.  Having a well-rested, happy baby drastically transforms the experience of motherhood. 

You will learn exactly how to be consistent, tuned in, and responsive to YOUR baby’s needs, and help them develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.

What's in the Video Course

In the 4-24 month video course, you will learn the fundamentals of baby sleep and will gain the knowledge and confidence you need to teach your baby independent sleep skills. 

With gradual and accelerated approaches, you will learn how to tune into YOUR baby and use the strategies that will be most effective for your baby. Many parents see improvement in as little as two days!

You’ll get 40 videos ranging from 5-25 minutes broken down into three main chapters:

  • Sleep Learning 101
    • A comprehensive analysis of what sleep learning is, why it’s important, and how to do it in a way that is tailored to you and your baby
    • Four different sleep learning approaches so you feel empowered to find the best fit for your baby
      • Accelerated approach (expect results in 2-7 days) 
      • Modified Accelerated approach (expect results in 1-4 weeks) 
      • Modified-Modified approach (expect results in 1-3 months) 
      • Gradual approach (expect results in 6 weeks to 6 months) 
  • Sleep Tips by Age
    • Understand unique nuances at every age and stage, from 4-24 months
  • Unique and Common Sleep Challenges
    • Navigating sleep regressions
    • Dropping naps
    • Evaluating the bigger picture for “tricky babies” 
    • Sleep learning with older babies 
    • Sleep learning while room sharing 
    • Co-sleeping
    • Twins

Just like with any type of learning, we all have different learning needs and learning styles (our babies included!).

Our method will help you learn to tune into your baby, read their cues, and tailor or change your approach as you work WITH your baby to meet their needs. You will also learn to tune into what teaching style makes the most sense for YOU.

Here’s what other Mama’s have to say:

Okay, I am ecstatic!! Not only is our baby sleeping great now, but I swear your program helped him overall. He doesn’t scream in his car seat anymore, he’s calm and can do independent play, and he is just an overall happier baby! It’s been a night and day difference. The first few months of his life were SO hard, but now we feel like we have the energy to just enjoy and soak up every minute of our baby. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!

Carly

I got the course and learned SO much about sleep learning. I gained so much confidence in my ability to sleep train my baby. She did amazingly well with the sleep learning and it almost seemed like she was relieved to have consistency and for me to know her sleep cues and when she would be tired. She caught on so quickly and learned how to soothe herself and be calm and confident enough to sleep through the night. The course gave me knowledge and confidence so that I could teach her and have her have comfort and confidence in me and herself.

Jacqueline

This course has helped so much with my little one’s sleep schedule! I was looking for something simple and straight-forward to tell me what to do and when in terms of sleep training, and this is it! I now feel so much more confident throughout our day, and don’t panic when something gets thrown off because this guide has helped me navigate those curve balls. Within a couple days of purchasing this package, my 6 month old was sleeping through the night, 12 hour stretches! Im so thankful that we’re all sleeping better.

Camille S.

Purchased this when our 3.5mo started the 4mo sleep regression. Before that we were told we were so lucky to have a great sleeper so it was a huge shock to be up all night and fight every nap. Started training the day after she turned 4 months and that night she fell asleep on her own within a few minutes. This package is great because she offers tips and insight into the many types of scenarios that occur and gives you the tools to troubleshoot based on your baby’s needs. Its like listening to a friends advice who actually knows! Its great to have this foundation and guide which helps everything else fall into place! We get a lot of comments that our baby is so happy and calm. She sleeps well!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I buy the course, the guide pack, or both?

Ultimately, the course and the guide pack are the perfect pair for everything you need to know about getting great newborn sleep (which is why they are bundled together and you save money by buying them together!) I highly recommend getting them both at the same time, as together, they are the most comprehensive and robust newborn sleep resources out there!

Can I use my HSA or FSA to pay for course(s), guide pack(s), and/or consultations?

Yes! You will likely need to get a letter of medical necessity signed by your healthcare provider. Click here for more information and a sample letter.

Can I buy the troubleshooting guides separately, or do I have to buy them altogether in the guide pack?

The troubleshooting guides are sold as a guide pack because they work together to give you comprehensive and robust answers to the most common questions and topics. You will also find that many of the guides pair well together!

How do I access the courses and guides after purchase?

After you have purchased the course(s) or guide pack(s), go to our homepage and click “login” in the top right corner. Once you enter your email address and password, there will be a menu on the left-hand side of the page. All of your guides will be under “my downloads” and the course(s) you purchase will be under “courses”.

What does “zone of proximal development” mean?

When we are referring to your child’s “zone of proximal development” we are talking about the space or distance between what they can do completely independently and what they can do with adult guidance and support. We don’t want to be teaching our children a skill that is “too easy” for them (one they can already do completely independently) and it’s not productive to try and teach our children a skill that is “too hard” (one they require adult guidance and support with). Optimal learning happens in the space between “too easy” and “too hard”; their zone of proximal development.

I’m not sure what product is best for me, can you help me choose?

Absolutely, we can! We have a super quick personalized quiz for you which takes less than a minute to complete and helps you determine which product and/or service is best for you!

Is your 4-24 Month Course about “Sleep Training” or “Sleep Learning”, and what is the difference?

“Sleep learning” means teaching your baby independent sleep skills in a way that honors both of your learning styles. With sleep learning, we are meeting your baby where they are at (in their zone of proximal development) and then using a gradual release of responsibility to guide and support them to more independence as they are developmentally ready, at a pace that works for them. For some babies and children, a more accelerated pace works best and for others, a more gradual pace is best. The key to sleep learning is YOU learning to tune into your baby so you know how to best support and guide them. And we can help!

In the 4-24 month course, you will learn that sleep learning is a collaborative growth process where you are working WITH your baby. You are laying the foundation for optimal sleep while honoring your parenting values and choices AND honoring the learning style and needs of your baby.

“Sleep Training” has so many negative connotations associated with it, and it leads many parents to feel guilt and shame if they even consider wanting to “sleep train” their baby. And it is hard to define because so many people have defined it in so many different ways.

This is why The Peaceful Sleeper is defining “sleep learning” as a method that simply means teaching your baby independent sleep skills in a way that works for both of you.

Will my private Insurance cover course(s), guide pack(s), and/or consultations?

It depends on your country/state and insurance provider, however, we strongly recommend you contact them to inquire! You may need a letter of medical necessity signed by your healthcare provider. Click here for more information and a sample letter.

  2. Chelsea Graves (verified owner)

    So much knowledge and even though it’s my 3rd baby, I still learned so much that I wish I would have had this the first two times around. My baby is sleeping 10-12 hours and I am one happy rested mama!

  3. Emily Spillane (verified owner)

    This class worked! I was on the fence about doing any sort of formal sleep training but I’m so glad I took this class. I loved that there were several options to choose from. We chose the one that felt best for our family and our babe is a pro at putting herself to sleep!

  4. Kim Alvanos (verified owner)

    I’m so happy with my decision to purchase the 4-24 month package. My friend had shared with me another popular sleep training method she used and it required night weaning and seemed to go against my mom gut to comfort my baby when and how they needed. The peaceful sleeper method gives you choices of how you want to sleep train and allowed me to keep a night feeding which I still feel my 16 week old needed. It also allowed me to comfort my baby when there was tears. Before starting sleep training we were rocking/bouncing/nursing baby to sleep and then transferring to the crib. It would take 40 or more minutes sometimes and he would wake on transfer so often. My husband and I were frustrated and knew babe was too. Naps were also 80% contact naps. Within 3 nights of sleep training he was starting to initiate sleep on his own for bedtime and naps. We are now 1 month in and still working on lengthening his naps, but overall sleep is SO MUCH better! I would recommend this program to anyone who needs help making a change to how their little one falls asleep.

  5. Kristen Zarabozo

    I bought this course because I was struggling with my son’s napping and I wanted to be prepared for sleep training at night should he come to need it. I feel that the videos and PDF’s have provided me with really helpful information and tools that have gifted me with a confidence and calm while navigating my son’s sleep as a new mom. I’m still working through the course, but with each video I feel even more equipped to meet my son’s specific needs. I would highly recommend this resource it’s helped me immensely.
