Parents Are Seeking Certified Sleep Expert Nannies

Infant Sleep Consulting is a newer industry that’s absolutely blowing up among parents everywhere. Why? Because:

  • Parents need their sleep!
  • Many new moms and dads struggle with baby sleep training.
  • Nannies spend a great deal of time with babies, so they’re the natural choice for teaching babies to sleep.
  • When a baby sleeps through the night, the entire household is happier.

Certified knowledge about infant sleep can boost your nanny career in ways you never imagined. And it can boost your income, too. (See below for details.)


What is Baby Sleep Training?

Baby sleep training is a method of teaching babies to sleep on their own.

A baby who is correctly sleep trained snoozes through the night (defined as 6-8 hours). They also go down for naps much more easily. You can see why this is such an in-demand addition to your nanny resume!

Baby sleep training is not letting a baby “cry it out” in the traditional sense. Instead, you will:

  • Establish a routine; Bath, Book and Bed is the most popular method.
  • Create a sleep plan. (That’s all covered in our course — read on for the details.)
  • Put baby down when they are sleepy but not fully asleep.
  • Gently remind Baby that you’re there if they are crying.
  • Be there to emotionally support new moms.
  • Know when to refer parents to a specialist.

Why You NEED a Sleep Training Course for Nannies

If you want to be trusted as a sleep consultant, you need a sleep training course for nannies. Why? Because you need to be certified in order to be trusted.

Becoming certified as an infant sleep consultant:

  • Makes you more trustworthy to clients.
  • Shows clients you take your job seriously.
  • Adds professionalism. (Remember, you need a certification for this!)
  • Shows clients you can offer more than the average nanny.
  • Can earn you more money at your nanny job.

It’s important not to simply say you have first-hand knowledge, but to show your clients your certification. So how do you get certified?

About Sleep Training Courses For Nannies

In order to be certified, you will need to complete several key courses. Make sure you take the right classes, including the science of infant sleep, breast feeding support, potential legal issues, sleep strategies, and creating a sleep plan for your clients.

Schools: Watch Out For THESE Red Flags

When IPSP® developed its sleep consultant course, we found a number of “schools” that offer sleep training “classes”.

It’s important to know that such “classes” are usually incomplete. You cannot call yourself a Certified Sleep Consultant unless you have taken a complete training program for nannies.

Look out for these red flags:

  • The school offers a “program” for very little money.
  • The school offers a “class” on the side and certifying sleep consultants is not their primary focus.
  • The school offers a “weekend program” to get certified. (Pro tip: that’s impossible!)
  • The website is brand-new.
  • The website isn’t intuitive and is difficult to navigate.
  • The course director is not available to answer your questions.
  • The course is not prominently featured on social media, such as Instagram and Facebook.
