Cry Baby is a program to help you understand and cope better with your baby’s sleep and crying. The online program gives tried and tested strategies for managing sleep and crying in babies under 12 weeks old.

Cry Baby: help for baby sleep and crying

Cry Baby is an evidence-based program for parents of infants aged less than 12 weeks of age. The program provides you with information and advice about:

  • the early steps you can take to set up good long-term sleep habits in your infant
  • normal infant crying and how to cope with crying.

Many parents have tried the same strategies used in the Cry Baby program – through face-to-face and over-the-phone programs – and found them helpful in everyday family life. 

Now these strategies are available to learn online using Cry Baby.

Cry Baby offers help and information whenever you need it – day and night.

It takes around one hour to do the Cry Baby online program from start to finish in one sitting – but you can start and stop whenever you want to. You can even skip sections or do sections again, depending on what interests you most.
