This course intended to provide additional training and expertise in area of newborn sleep for sleep professionals. This is a comprehensive course that solely focuses on sleep in the newborn up age 3 months. Sleep Consultants or other sleep educators are encouraged to take this course as most courses only provide general training in this age group.
Considering how fragile newborns are, this course will provide additional training and education, so that you can confidently teach clients with babies in this young age group. The course will discuss everything you need to know about newborn sleep, calming techniques, how to create a newborn sleep plan, how to market your sleep plans, safety guidelines, and so much more!
If you are a sleep consultant or other sleep educator but are afraid to consult clients with such young babies this course is for you!
Don’t lose income because you are lacking the confidence and expertise in the 0-3 month age group!
Who should take this course?
Sleep consultants looking to get more training and education.
Doulas working with babies post partum.
