Sleep Consulting is a Growing Niche

Thinking about becoming a Certified Sleep Consultant for infants and children? Now is the perfect time. Sleep consulting is a growing industry, with more parents than ever before seeking help for their child’s sleep issues.  So why is it such a great time to become a Certified Sleep Consultant? Well, once upon a time, parents relied on the advice of friends and family, on books, and on their doctor’s advice in helping children develop better sleep habits. It’s likely you know someone who has struggled with a sleepless little one. Or perhaps you went through the same difficult issue yourself. You try everything, from putting the baby down full of nice, warm milk to letting her “cry it out.”  Yet none of it worked. And you were left stumped ––  and wondering what you did wrong.

Parents (and Babies!) Just Need the Right Training

The problem with babies and sleep is that the minute the infant is born, parents are hit with a myriad of conflicting parenting advice, through books, magazines, or personal experiences from friends and family. For some families, a particular piece of advice works.But for many others, the more techniques they try, the more confused their child becomes, and the issue may even become worse. That’s where Certified Sleep Consultants come in. There’s no better feeling than seeing a baby get the sleep (finally!) that their developing bodies need. Seeing a family that has been wrestling with this painful issue find peace, quiet and harmony is such a tremendous reward.


What is a Baby Sleep Consultant?

A Certified Infant or Child Sleep Consultant:

  • Consults with parents or caregivers to determine the exact problem.
  • Helps develop a individual baby sleep plan according to the family’s style and needs.
  • Gives specific sleep advice.
  • Demonstrates empathy to increase trust between the Consultant and the caregiver(s).
  • Demonstrates experience and is able to produce credentials (such as a Sleep Consultant Certification).
  • Provides ongoing support after the teaching process is completed.

Why a Baby Sleep Consultant Certificate is Important

Perhaps you’re “that person” friends go to for advice on helping their baby get to sleep. And that’s great! In fact, many women start on this career path because they’ve had great luck with helping parents out. But it’s problematic ––  and even potentially dangerous ––  to rely on instinct or personal experience to help caregivers with their issue. That’s because you may be missing some important aspects of gently and reliably getting babies to go to sleep.  You might also give the wrong advice that makes things harder for parents. It’s not unheard of for an amateur “helper” to accidentally give medical advice (this is a no-no for Certified Sleep Consultants, by the way!), or to unknowingly damage an infant’s trust in her caregiver. An infant Sleep Consultant certificate from a reputable school shows you’ve been through the correct education process to enable you to help parents with their baby’s sleep problems safely.
