Get smart about sleep.

Cradle is a custom sleep training app for tired babies and exhausted parents. We partnered with founder and pediatric sleep therapist Courtney Palm to take her sleep training expertise and turn it into an app that simplifies an otherwise daunting task for parents.

Baby Steps

There’s a ton of information out there about the benefits of sleep training and how to do it. Maybe too much. Especially when you’re a new parent and you don’t have time to sift through it all.


We had high hopes for this app but what the Barbershop team accomplished was beyond what we could have imagined. This team dedicated so much time and energy into our project that it immediately felt like a partnership.

Look Ma, One Hand

We wanted to make the UI so easy, you could do it in the middle of the night, on two hours of sleep, while sleep eating stale pretzels. Oh, and with one hand.

Smart Design, Smart Babies

There are many reasons to use a sleep trainer for your baby. They range from better health to brain development. It’s just smart. So the app and the site are designed with tools built in to help parents understand and achieve a proper sleep schedule for their little one.

Cradle is available in the Apple App Store. Visit to find out more.
