We are now enrolling for our February 2023 course.
Thinking about becoming a sleep consultant?
Infant sleep consultancy offers you a career that is flexible around family life, gives you financial independence, and is incredibly fulfilling.
I trained to become a sleep consultant after using a consultant to help with my first baby’s sleep. The frequent night wakings, short naps and inconsistent routine were having a real impact, and after working with that particular sleep consultant, the change in our family’s lives was incredible and I was forever grateful. At that point, I realised how much positive impact one person could have on an entire family and that was really inspiring for me.
I was also working long hours and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to juggle work and still be a huge part of my child’s life. I didn’t want to go back to work full time, but I still had bills to pay. I have 3 children now, my business works around their schedule and I’ve never been happier.
The amazing thing about becoming a sleep consultant is it can give you a sustainable income and financial independence, whilst remaining connected with your family. It can be used as a supplement to your family’s income, or if you want to turn it into a six-figure business, that’s achievable too. And it all starts with getting your accreditation here.

How To become A Baby Sleep Consultant: FAQ’s
How long does it take to complete the online course?
The course can be completed online and at your own pace. It is about 12-15 hours of study depending on your individual learning style.
Do you provide ongoing support if I need help with clients?
Yes, you can join our support network where we have weekly calls to discuss specific client issues or ask any general questions you have.
How will the course be assessed?
You will be assessed at the end of the course by a series of question. Your answers will be submitted for review to assess your learning of the key objectives of the course.
What is a baby sleep consultant's salary?
You can earn as much as you want to. If you want to earn about £2,000 – £3,000 per month, you will probably work with an average of 2 to 3 clients per week. If you want to earn a six-figure annual salary, you absolutely can achieve that too (also possible to do this in the first year!).
When will I make my investment back?
Depending on your consultation price, you would likely get a complete return on your investment after approximately 7 – 8 families.
Can I work part time?
Yes, the nice thing is you can choose how many clients you want to take on. Typically a sleep consultant will charge between £250 – £350 per client for around 2 weeks of virtual support. Work out what you want to earn, and then set your price and how many clients you want to take on from there.
Do I need to do a lot of media coverage?
It’s totally up to you and your business goals. To have a full time sleep consultancy, as well as supporting clients, it is good to build up blog content for your website and posts on social media as a way to advertise your services. We know some sleep consultants that pay a copywriter to do this side of things. You can choose to take on another 1 or 2 clients per month to cover the cost of paying someone else to do it. These are the topics we would cover in more detail in the Sleep Business Start-Up Course.
Will owning my own business involve long hours?
The best thing about owning a sleep consultancy is that you can choose when to work. Yes, there might be days where you have to work some extra hours, such as when your business launches, but you will be in control of your hours, when those hours in the day are and when you take time off.
I wouldn't even know how to get a client - where would I start?!
Everyone who wants to setup their own business has fears about where they will get their first client and how you will make money. But you will. With our support in the group training, we will assist you all the way to your first client. And the good thing about setting up a sleep consultancy is that there is very little upfront investment required apart from this course, your website and some marketing budget. This makes it a very low risk, high rewards project.
