Wondering how to become a sleep consultant so that you can help sleepless parents everywhere?

Sleep consulting is an amazing and rewarding career. You get to give parents the gift of sleep! I’m sure you know someone that has been struggling with their baby’s sleep, or maybe you have been through it yourself. There’s no better feeling than finally seeing a baby get the sleep their growing and developing bodies so desperately need. In fact, any new parent you talk to will often complain about how difficult the sleep deprivation is and how they are willing to do anything to just get some Zzz’s. That’s where a sleep consultant comes in to save the day (or night).


What is a Baby Sleep Consultant?

As soon as baby is born parents are suddenly hit with a myriad of conflicting parenting advice, through books, magazines, or personal experiences from friends and family.

It’s hard to know which advice to take and it can all get to be a bit overwhelming, to say the least.

Parents are exhausted trying to come up with ways to get their child to sleep, to keep their child sleeping, and to basically develop a sleep pattern that works in their home.

Just as no two households are the same, each child is unique and requires a tailor-made program and schedule that suits their needs and goes in line with their family’s schedule. That’s where a Sleep Consultant can help!


Sleep Consultant Certification

Sleep Consultant Certification helps train and prepare you work with families that are struggling with getting their little ones to sleep. With all of the conflicting information on the web and so called “experts” offering confusing advice,  parents are looking for someone to help them that has been properly trained in pediatric sleep. After all, parents are trusting their most prized possession, their baby, to a complete stranger. Knowing that someone has received sleep consultant training and is certified through a reputable training program makes all the difference in the world.
