Violet Giannone, Owner and Founder of The Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting™


Violet Giannone, owner and founder of The Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting™ (IPSP™), is one of the world’s foremost authorities on pediatric sleep training. A registered nurse with more than 15 years of experience in the medical field, including 10 years as a pediatric sleep consultant, Violet specializes in customized sleep plans for children ages newborn to 5 years old and shares her proven insights with sleep consultants worldwide. 

The celebrated author of Baby Sleep Training in 7 Days, Violet’s career in sleep training was inspired by her own personal experience when her infant daughter struggled with sleep for the first year of her life. Overwhelmed when countless sleep training programs proved ineffective, she set off on her own journey of research and discovery to understand pediatric sleep. Studying various training methods in-depth, relying on her own medical training and leveraging the trusted insight of her amazing pediatrician, Violet realized that pediatric sleep isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, and that a tailored, customized approach is the only path to success. 

Her formula for effective sleep training resulted in the launch of Sleep, Baby, Sleep®, a website that shares her sleep training program which, to date, has a nearly 100% success rate in nurturing peacefully-sleeping babies. The overwhelming success of Sleep, Baby, Sleep® led to Violet sharing her strategies and philosophies with sleep consultants across the globe through The Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting™ – an online training institute offering courses and certification in pediatric sleep and parenting. With more than 350,000 births daily, Violet is on a mission to make sleep consultants highly-effective in helping new families sleep through the night. In addition, the IPSP™ sets itself apart by offering lessons on lactation, breastfeeding, SIDS, postpartum depression and much more, led by industry experts with a wide range of impressive credentials.

Beyond her leadership duties at IPSP™, Violet is a Regional Representative for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC), a Professional Member of the National Sleep Foundation, a member of the International Association of Complementary Therapists, and a Pediatric Sleep Expert for Tot Squad – a marketplace that connects new parents to helpful resources. In addition, the IPSP™ program is approved by the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) and features a high-profile advisory board of experts who are ready to assist each IPSP™ student.

Now a renowned expert in the field, Violet has authored several articles for highly-acclaimed parenting magazines, books and websites, including Best in Baby Biz Moms, Moms Magazine,, Central Penn Parents, Baby Chick, Macaroni Kid, What to Expect When You’re Expecting and more.
