New App To Help Babies Sleep Comes Under Fire
A new phone application developed as a baby and toddler sleeping aid is being hit with criticism from experts.
The creators of the Little Ones app have come under fire from medical and legal experts, raising questions about whether or not it’s effective.
The app, created by Amanda Snedden and Nicky Barker, comes with a price tag of up to $142 and promises to help parents get their babies to sleep. Its creators boast that it has helped over 120,000 in 90 different countries to date.
But, according to Perth Now, critics have slammed the app, claiming it takes a “one size fits all” approach to something that should be individualized.
Snedden has contested this claim, saying that it’s not a fair assessment of her product. She argues that, with nine different ways to settle a baby, or remove sleep associations, and adjustable guidelines for each method, the app can be tailored to the needs of each child.
