Questions? You’ll likely find the answers below!
What does the training program cover?
Great question! If you’re going to be an expert, you need to have expert-level knowledge. To be successful as a Certified Sleepy Lambs Sleep Consultant®, I know you want to have the ability to support families and answer questions in confidence.
Our training program is comprehensive, to provide you with the understanding of sleep science, age-appropriate sleep, causes of sleep challenges, developmental milestones, nutrition & sleep, the importance of emotional wellness and connection, stages of sleep support, supporting families, processes and more!
Do you teach a specific sleep training method?
No! The Sleepy Lambs approach is unique. We believe that the focus is to look for the cause of any sleep challenges (e.g. if a baby is hungry, they’re not going to sleep and nor should they!)
The cause of sleep challenges could be medical, physical, emotional, developmental, or related to routines and habits.
Certified Sleepy Lambs Sleep Consultants® work on ensuring all of the foundations are in place before jumping to the next steps. The approach leads to longer-term sleep success.
You will learn about a variety of approaches as well as how to create bespoke approaches for each family.
My area already has a Certified Sleepy Lambs Sleep Consultant ®
We want to ensure that each Certified Sleepy Lambs Sleep Consultant® is set up to run a successful business, so have spaced out territories to ensure we maintain a supportive team atmosphere, not one of competition.
If it appears that your area is already covered, please send us an email and we can look into it further for you as there may still be opportunities available.
Is the training certified internationally?
The profession of sleep consulting is relatively new and there is no governing body in any country or worldwide.
This is unfortunate, as someone could read a book or do a weekend seminar and call themselves a sleep consultant.
In the absence of a governing body, the level of education and standards in the Sleepy Lambs Sleep Consultant® training program is extremely comprehensive, as we feel that the better education and training you have, the better outcome and service provided to your clients.
What's changed from your earlier training program?
Not much. The training program is virtually the same. The new platform provides some new features that increase engagement and enhance the training.
The final project now includes supporting 5 families instead of 4. We’ve made that adjustment to provide some extra experience and support. Previously, everyone who joined our training program stayed on the team, so would continue to get ongoing support and mentorship as they worked with clients. Now that we have two offers and you may be starting off on your own, we want to ensure you’re well-prepared and supported.
Other programs are cheaper. What's the difference?
There are a variety of training programs out there and they are all so different. I understand the confusion! Whilst I can’t comment on specific programs, I can tell you that you won’t gain the expertise to truly become an expert in a weekend seminar. You’re not likely to get the best training from someone who has barely had a year of experience as a sleep consultant and no related education. Unfortunately, in an unregulated field, those programs are available.
We believe that if you want to be seen as an expert, have the confidence of an expert, and get paid as an expert, you need to have the knowledge and understanding of an expert. It’s not something that can be faked.
We’ve had people go through our training who had previously done other training programs before, including well-known and more expensive programs, and were looking for more in-depth knowledge and understanding.
With over 100 hours of training, you’ve got a great foundation.
How has the global pandemic affected sleep consulting?
We’re very lucky! Babies are still being born every second and many will struggle with sleep, so that hasn’t changed at all. For the most part, we supported families virtually already. New parents need more support than ever before, as many of the traditional methods of supporting families aren’t available, such as baby groups, family support etc. Over the past year, business has remained very consistent, or has grown, compared to previous years.
How do I get started?
We’re looking for enthusiastic people! If you’re keen to get started, let’s do it! The first step is to complete a short application form, so we can learn a little more about you.
From there, we’ll let you know the next steps to start your training!
