Does the Lumi Smart Sleep Coach work?
Absolutely! In fact, parents who combine the expert video tutorials with rigorous tracking, see results up to 3x faster than parents who don’t track.
Is Sleep Training safe for my baby?
Yes, sleep training is safe for your baby. The Lumi Smart Sleep System was co-developed with Dr. Canapari, a pediatrician who specializes in the care of children with sleep problems. Every sleep training method presented is science-backed, safe, and proven to help babies sleep better.
We cover multiple methods in our sleep coaching series to fit your parenting style.
Does the Smart Sleep Coach offer multiple methods of sleep training to choose from?
Yes, we offer a wide variety of proven sleep and nap training methods, so you can choose the method that best suits your family.
How long does it take for my baby’s sleep to improve?
Many parents who use Lumi tell us that they see improvement in as little as 7 days, however if it is of course different for every baby. It will depend largely on the method you decide to use, and how consistently you follow the steps in the method.
Some elements, such as improving your baby's sleeping environment, can even have an immediate effect.
When can I start with the Lumi Smart Sleep coach? What age is it appropriate for?
0-16 months. Sleep is a journey and some elements, such as establishing a bedtime routine and creating an ideal sleep environment, can be implemented as soon as you bring your child home from the hospital – we cover this in the Newborn Fundamentals Series.
More typically it is around 3-4 months of age when the window opens for behavioral sleep training which is simply teaching your baby to fall asleep without you present. It’s a good idea to check if your baby is ready with your Pediatrician.
Have I left it too late? My baby seems too old to sleep train?
It’s never too late to sleep train – while we cover in-depth topics for babies from 0-16 months, what you’ll learn with the Lumi Smart Sleep Coach are fundamental to understanding how to master your baby’s sleep.
How long do I have access?
Subscriptions are available in 1 month / 3 month and 6 month increments
I’m pregnant, can I purchase and use later?
Absolutely. Many of our parents complete the Sleep Coaching Video tutorials before their baby arrives so that they can be one step ahead of their baby’s sleep and implement healthy sleep habits from day one.
What is sleep training?
Sleep training is a process that will help your baby fall asleep independently and because of that, be able to ‘stay asleep’ since if they wake during the night (like we all do) they know how to put themselves back to sleep.
