What Is an Infant Sleep Consultant?
A sleep consultant or "sleep coach" is a professional expertly trained to help parents and caregivers create a safe and healthy sleep habit for their infants and toddlers. You'll consult with parents and caregivers on their child's needs and the methods they're comfortable with, and then work with them to establish a bedtime routine that will work for their child. You'll consult on common bedtime/night time problems to help the child sleep comfortably through the night, so that the parents can get adequate rest, too!
Some sleep consultants specialize in one-time consultations or coaching sessions. Others offer full-service consulting, where they will visit their client's home for several days or weeks in order to solve the child's sleep problems. And of course, you can offer a range of services to suit any client that comes your way! This highly specialized practice is perfectly suited to anyone who already works in the child care or healthcare industries, or anyone who has a knack for working with children.
Basic Requirements for Becoming a Sleep Consultant
Patience — Babies are babies. They won't always cooperate, and that's why you're there. You need to be able to keep your cool under stressful conditions.
Flexibility — Similarly, you need to be able to adapt your approach to the child's needs and to the caregiver's preferences. Sometimes that means putting your own preferences aside!
Reliability — As a professional, you'll be expected to adhere to a set schedule. Time management skills are essential to succeed in this career.
Care & Compassion — You're going to be working with babies, infants and toddlers every day. You'll need to be empathetic as they adjust to their new routines.
