How Much Do Sleep Consultants Make?

The Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting®  (IPSP) is the leading source for training in this newly emerging career path.  Some of its graduates are averaging 30 clients a month.  Their average starting fee for a single email consultation is $350-$400. Home visits typically follow and they can generate another $2,000 to $3,000 in income.

In a recent survey, most IPSP Sleep Consultants are making anywhere between $60,000 and $160,000 annually when working full-time. Please email us with the subject line “income survey” if you would like to see the results of the full survey.

Your Training Determines Your Earning Potential 

Training focuses on customizing sleep plans for children ages newborn to 5 years old with many enrollees being busy parents themselves looking for a career with flexible work hours that gives them more time at home with their own kids and families. Even the program itself is flexible, with the option of completing it at your own pace.

Training is provided by IPSP’s founder Violet Giannone, one of the world’s most recognized experts in pediatric sleep training. As well as many other industry experts!

A Registered Nurse inspired by her own personal struggles with an infant daughter with difficult sleep patterns, Giannone has authored her highly celebrated book, Baby Sleep Training in 7 Days.  She has been featured in and a contributor for a myriad of parenting magazines and websites including, Consumer Reports,, Best in Baby Biz Moms, Moms Magazine, Central Penn Parents, Baby Chick, Macaroni Kid, and more.

Giannone is also the 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 various parenting platforms.

Accredited Sleep Consultant Certification Program

Her sleep consultant certification program at IPSP® is approved by the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) and is backed by a high-profile advisory board and experts who provided hands-on assistance to its students. The Sleep Consultant Certification Program is also one of only two programs accredited by the American Academy of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).

Ultimately, what someone gets out of becoming a certified sleep consultant, says Giannone, all comes down to what they put into it. “We recently surveyed our graduates some are using their certification as a side hustle, while others are making over $150,000 annually” 

The key will be choosing the right course with a proven track record. The Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting has had over 1000 students and has trained some of the world’s most successful sleep consultants. Including consultants who have entire teams working under them, have made media appearances, have worked with celebrity clients, are brand sponsors for some of the biggest baby brands, and so much more.

“If you love helping others, love talking about babies and sleep, and think you would enjoy helping sleepless families, then you will make a good sleep consultant salary,” said Giannone. The possibilities really are endless at the IPSP®

Needless to say being a sleep consultant gives new meaning to sleeping on the job!

how much do sleep consultants make

I graduated in December of 2020 and am now building my NEW business day by day! The best part….I am completely in charge of my own schedule and able to pick when I am available to work. My son is 9 now and I am so appreciative that I took the course through the IPSP and that I have made a career change. As now I am able to drop off/pick my son up from school and am able to re-arrange my schedule as is needed to fit my family needs!! Being a sleep consultant is so fulfilling when I hear back from the families I worked with, just how much I helped them and their children get the sleep they all deserve!! 

Kiersten DeRosier IPSP Grad

“This was the only course I found offered, that has an actual instructor in the medical field. My experience with the training course was great. I really liked the fact that you can work at your own pace. The information laid out in the course was very thorough but still written in a way that was easy to understand. Violet was quick to answer questions and very helpful.”

Sjonea Kassinger, IPSP Grad

“IPSP Consultant Course gave me the education and knowledge I need to move forward with my own business. I feel prepared to help my clients. Having Violet’s ongoing support for 6 months after the course completion is a huge reason I chose the program and makes me feel confident moving forward”


I really think the course was great and its given me the tools to start my own business. The facebook community is so great and you feel you have a support network. Whenever I emailed Violet with any questions she was so quick to respond which I really appreciated
