How do I become a Certified Sleep Consultant?
Have you thought about becoming a baby sleep consultant but have no idea where to get such training? I know, the information about sleep consultant certification and training is very limited and difficult to find. Currently there are only a handful of sleep consultant certification programs available.
As a sleep consultant you have the amazing job of giving sleep-deprived parents the gift of sleep. Not only is it rewarding, but it enables you to meet and work with wonderful parents and their families. I’ve found a great deal of joy in helping people all over the world, and I believe you can too. So, if you are passionate about sleep topics and parenting, then you would be a great sleep consultant. The only thing I ask for is a willingness to work hard. In turn, I will do my very best to make sure you understand every concept and will share all of my secrets and tricks of the trade.

The Sleep, Baby, Sleep™ program was created to be affordable and attainable. The cost is lower than other sleep consultant certification programs because several of my clients over the years have had a true passion for helping sleepless parents and their babies, and I don’t want the price of tuition for sleep consultant training to hold them back from becoming amazing sleep consultants. I have been given this amazing opportunity, and I believe it should be attainable for everyone who has a true passion for this field.
