What is a Baby Sleep Consultant?


As soon as you become a parent you’re 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!


How Can a Sleep Consultant Help?


A lot of parents feel that they need to go through the journey of parenthood alone and are often embarrassed to admit that they’re struggling, especially when it comes to putting baby to sleep. But sometimes it’s hard to see what’s going wrong when you’re deep down in the problem and what it takes is an outside view.

Parents have often tried everything, exhausting all methods of how to put their precious baby to sleep, but nothing seems to be working. This is where a sleep consultant can get involved and become mom and dad’s very own, “magic wand”.

There is no point for parents to spend countless nights struggling with a lack of sleep.

And this is where a sleep consultant steps in.

A sleep consultant essentially plays the role of “Nanny McPhee,” someone who can step into a household, physically but often virtually, assess the needs, and suggest changes from a professional view.

Someone that has been trained in the art of sleeping! Baby sleep that is!

Working together with a professional that specializes in sleep, together with mom and dad’s parental instincts, sets the scene for easy sleep time and eliminates sleep deprivation.

Some are calling sleep deprivation during infancy a public health concern! I couldn’t agree more. If more parents received proper guidance on how to help their baby sleep well, parenting an infant would be much more enjoyable.

Unfortunately in our society, were are taught to just “deal with it” but dealing with it often means that we are struggling and up all hours of the night for the first few years of our children’s lives as studies show that sleep problems that are not resolved during infancy continue up 3-5 years of age! That’s a LONG time to be sleep deprived.

In my experience as a sleep consultant, I have seen parents at their wits end, sleeping separately, marriages in despair, moms going through postpartum depression, all as a result of sleep deprivation. Something that can either be prevented or easily fixed with the help of a trained sleep consultant.


Sleep Consultant Training and Certification


The beauty of a sleep consultant is that they work directly with parents offering helpful advice catered specifically for their child. They give parents the right tools, provide support, and boost them with the confidence they need to successfully teach their baby to sleep well.

Most consultants work by phone, email, or online through Skype. So that parents can receive advice from the comfort of their own home.With an appropriate sleep plan and guidance from a sleep consultant through the sleep teaching process, those difficult sleepless nights, do get better.

And yes, blissful sleep for mom, dad, and baby, is attainable!



Why is Sleep Consultant Training Necessary?


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 traind 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.

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.”
