Train your baby to sleep the night so you can get some well needed rest. Uses a proven sleep training method which teaches your baby to self-soothe and go back to sleep.
Going to sleep independently is a learned behavior, and everyone needs a good night's sleep - Mom, Dad, siblings, and your infant. Once your infant's doctor tells you they no longer need to eat in the middle of the night (usually around 4-5 months old), they can learn how to put themselves to sleep and to sleep through the night. Unfortunately, while babies obviously know how to sleep, they don't necessarily know how to soothe themselves to sleep at bedtime, and back to sleep when they naturally wake up during the night. A typical sleep cycle is 90 minutes, after which our bodies naturally wake up a bit, and then can either stay awake, or go back to sleep. The goal of sleep training is to help children to develop good sleep associations, strategies, and behaviors that help them to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Testimonial from a Beta Tester: "The first night my daughter cried for 45 minutes, with me checking on her 6 times and also cried several minutes twice in the middle of the night, the second night 20 minutes and twice in the middle of the night, the third night 5 minutes and once during the night, and the fourth night she didn't cry at all, and then slept 7 hours straight!"

Working wonders on our 5 month old
This app is awesome and started working for us ON NIGHT 1! And she keeps sleeping longer and crying less every night since then (now on day 5). Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the log layout is a bit overwhelming to look at and could use some design work. It would also be awesome for cloud sync where my wife and I could use the app simultaneously
Nice timer, could be improved
I'm currently sleep training my 6-month-old son and this is a nice timer app. The log is confusing and could benefit from some simplification (way too many numbers). Also would be nice if the app credited Dr. Ferber for his "progressive waiting" method of sleep training. Would be nice if you could insert a photo of your own child into the app (crying face or sleeping face maybe?).
Only thing that worked for us
This app was amazing and the only thing that worked for my family in sleep training. I would definitely recommend it to any parents out there dreaming of sleep.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
