- Written content
- Downloadable/printable routines & charts

My baby is XXXX weeks/months old, which program should I purchase?
We understand that sometimes your baby or child will be on the tail end of one Dr Golly age based program and just about ready to start a new one.
The age appropriate routines are uniquely set for your babies needs at that specific time, a few things to keep in mind are:
- If you have a premmie baby the Dr Golly Sleep Program recommends age correction until 6 months of age
- We have set the VIP Bundle Deal at a very discounted price point as we believe each age based program plays an essential role in guiding you through the needs of your baby at that time
- You can start the program at any age 0-5 years, it’s never too late to start healthy sleep routines
If you only want to start out purchasing one course here are our general recommendations on when we think you should go with one program over the other:
- If you baby is 2 weeks or older: go with the Little Baby 3-16 week program
- If your baby is 15 weeks or younger go for the Little Baby 3-16 week program
- If you baby is 15 weeks or older: go with the Big Baby 4-8 month program
- If your baby is 7 months or younger stay in Big Baby 4-8 month program
- If you baby is over 7 months sleeping 12 hours through the night look at the Pre-Toddler: 8-12 months program
What settling techniques do you recommend in the program?
The Dr Golly Program offers a range of different settling techniques, both gentle and more traditional methods. Dr Golly does not recommend letting babies cry it out. The settling techniques differ depending on age.
We recommend selecting techniques based on your baby's temperament and your own parenting style. There are lists of pros and cons in each of the age based programs to help you choose the best settling solution for your family.
