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.

I went for the ‘1-1 three week’s support plan’ with Chris and it was the best £399 I’ve ever spent. Prior to contacting Chris, my little one, who is now 16 months old could not self soothe. He would rely on me or my partner rocking him to sleep every nap and every bed time. He would wake up when put into his cot, and struggled to sleep unless on one of us. He would spend the night in our bed and wake up 6-7 times a night. It was completely exhausting. I didn’t want to do controlled crying or leave him etc so when I reached out to Chris he assured me I would be by my boys side the whole way, which I was. The plan worked just as it should have done, stage by stage and it’s completely changed mine and my boys life. I now lay him in his cot for bed and nap times and he’s able to self soothe in minutes. If you’re having trouble with your little ones sleep I would 💯 recommend Chris. He’s very supportive, quick to respond and gives lots of advice. Thanks again one happy mummy here xxx

*Note* reporting from an anxious first time mum with a koala baby! Never thought we would be here today but thanks to Chris’s help, we have an 8 month old baby who completely self settles from awake, sleeps well, eats well and most importantly is happier and healthier (as are mum and dad). We stuck to his guidance to the letter; it’s extremely testing and requires patience and consistency. But if you have the will power believe me you will reap the rewards at the end. It’s important to know there’s up and downs through the journey… don’t give up! We recommend the £200 package- send in your 4 day diary and follow up with the hour consultation. Chris will write you a plan tailored to you and your baby (which involves gentle sleep training for anyone who is anxious about the ‘cry it out’ method). Follow as instructed and voila you have a happier household. As Chris advised us, don’t wait get on top of it now. Can’t recommend enough thank you so much Chris.

We contacted Chris when we were looking for help with our 6 month old’s sleep, having got stuck in some bad habits following the 4-month sleep regression. We were particularly looking for a sleep consultant who had experience supporting a child with reflux as this added to the complexities, and our desire for a gentle yet effective approach. Chris’ straightforward approach helped us to hold ourselves accountable and we trusted his process - within a couple of nights our daughter’s sleep was beginning to transform, and we were getting our evenings back and some predictability and structure to our days! The 1-2-1 package meant we could check in with Chris for any questions big or small, and he gave us the encouragement we needed to continue with each ‘stage’. We’re now 6 weeks on and life couldn’t be more different! Our daughter is sleeping well (dare I say ‘through the night’, which was even more than our expectation of waking once for a feed) and we have got our evenings back and unbroken sleep at night, too.

Working with Chris has been a life-changing experience for us. Our 13 months old had never slept well with the situation deteriorating to her waking up every 1.5 hours, and only going back to sleep when being carried, sometimes for hours. We were on the brink of break-down, nothing seemed to help, whatever we tried. So we tried Chris.. After the insightful kick-off and a clear plan, Chris provided us with ongoing, real time WhatsApp support for any questions we had. He was always available, his texts were tailored to our daughter, giving advice and support for every situation we encountered. It was crucial to us that the approach would not be any type of "cry it out“ sleep training. Chris' method puts the baby’s well-being first and that was paramount to us. The effect was simply amazing. From the first night our daughter's night sleep improved significantly and kept getting better. After 4 weeks she is sleeping 10-11 hours at night, something we would have never believed possible. We are not sleep-deprived anymore and also our baby-girl is way more relaxed and in better mood overall, even catching-up on some development steps she had been late with. We are from Germany and found it very easy to manage the language barrier, Chris was also very helpful and patient here. If you need help, just give this a try — you will only regret not having found Chris earlier 😉

Chris has literally changed our lives. In just 3 weeks, my 6 month old has gone from waking up every 1-2 hours, short napping, feeding little and often to sleeping 7pm-7am in her own room, regularly napping during the day, feeding 4/5 times a day and is such a happier baby. Bedtime was always so stressful in our house & now she puts herself to sleep with no crying. I can’t thank Chris enough for everything he has done, best money we have spent!

My partner and I approached The Mummy and Daddy Sleep Consultant after struggling with night wakings from our 18-month-old. He would wake consistently most nights and be awake for up to 2 hours at a time before going back to sleep. Often, we would resort to bringing him into bed with us as he we would settle quicker. We had an initial consultation with Chris and found him very personable, understanding and we were hopeful he would be able to help our situation. We also liked the fact he didn’t use any ‘Cry it out’ method and we thought the ‘Comfort through change approach’ would work best for us. It did!! After following the plan, our son now sleeps consistently through the night and when he does wake, settles himself back down quite quickly. We would highly recommend anyone in a similar situation to use them. Our only regret is not contacting them sooner.

We were having to stay in our 2yo's room until she went to sleep for up to an hour before creeping out (sometimes unsuccessfully) and we thought it was going to be an absolute nightmare to get out of it so we decided to get 1-2-1 support from Chris. Friends were able to put their kids in the cot and just walk out and we felt like that was a million miles away for us. But! With Chris's help we could not believe that only a few nights in and we were doing exactly that! We didn't realise she was in a sleep deficit so needed an earlier bedtime which really helped with not also battling overtiredness and we followed his strict instructions and we have been putting her in the cot, walking out and shutting the door and that's it until the morning!! We still can't believe we're writing this after so long of not being able to get out of staying in the room and are so grateful for Chris's expert knowledge and support. If you're thinking of getting in touch with him, do it!!!

Our baby's sleep is transformed since working with Dani. She coached us through the steps and was responsive when we needed advice or reassurance along the way. We're a much happier family and most importantly baby is much chirpier too!

Chris has been absolutely amazing and has changed our lives. I had deliberated for ages about whether to purchase the one to one plan with the 3 weeks support and I am so glad I did. My daughter (15 months old), didn't have a problem self settling to sleep at bedtime, but she was waking up on a regular basis in the night and sometimes staying awake for hours. Chris analysed my daughters day and night schedule in detail and was able to pin point the issues and talk us through the resettling methods. After 4 nights of persisting with his methods, she was sleeping 11-12 hours consistently. Chris is quick to respond to messages and is very supportive. I would highly recommend Chris and Danni’s service to anyone struggling with their little ones sleep. It is money very well spent.

Dani has been great! Really informative, helpful and has provided us with clear directions and instructions. Before the sleep consult we weren’t sure which approach to take and therefore ended up doing nothing very successfully! But with Dani’s help in the space of three weeks we have gone from contact napping all night/constantly nursing, to a baby that sleeps 8pm-8am with only one nighttime feed! Would highly recommend!

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.

Why is the sleep & business start-up course much cheaper than others available?

We don’t know why the other courses are priced so high but we saw an opportunity to create a top-class training programme at an affordable price to people. 

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.
