Sleepwonders is a collection of evidence-based courses devoted to holistic pediatric sleep. We started with the Consultant Course in 2017, which has been updated, and have now added a version for Parents and one for Professionals such as Nannies, Doulas, Childcare Providers, and Newborn Care Specialists.
Each version of the course was designed specifically for its audience, encouraging maximum use of the material provided. This expansion came about through feedback from students who had varying education needs. Everyone in the business of caring for young children needs a comprehensive understanding of sleep, but most don’t need to become a consultant to achieve this.
Sleepwonders is now available in THREE different versions to meet the needs of every person who interacts with or cares for young children. Read the descriptions below to find out which one is right for you!
Parents who want to learn more about sleep from conception to toddlerhood can access this online education course and prevent or solve their children’s sleep problems from a holistic perspective. Learn the secrets to healthy sleep without aggressive sleep training and gain insight to popular methods and which may be appropriate for your child. To support every parent, we offer a wide variety of advice for those who: prioritize nursing over sleep milestones, practice attachment parenting, need results fast (for everyone’s sanity and health), want to follow a specific style or method, or who have special obstacles to overcome (prematurity, medical concerns, shared room). 6 Modules are available online and on-demand. The modules cover basic sleep science, brain development, introduction to gut health, Sleepwonders Foundations for healthy sleep, when to seek outside help from a medical professional, popular methods and who they are appropriate for, steps to creating your own sleep plan, and solutions to common sleep issues and regressions. Downloadable handouts are available. Every course purchased comes with a 30-minute call with a professional Sleepwonders Consultant.
*This is NOT the professional or consultant course. It is geared toward parents and their specific needs. It does not cover coaching strategy or business topics, and the material is designed to cover basic science so we can spend more time on problem solving.
Professionals who want to learn more about sleep from conception to toddlerhood can access this course online and in-person at live events to discover how to prevent or solve sleep problems for the babies and children they care for, from a holistic perspective.

*This is NOT the consultant course, but is intended for professionals in the nanny, childcare, newborn care, and postpartum support fields. Because this course serves a wide variety of professionals, the material covers basic science, intermediate-level sleep knowledge, and practical lessons for using this knowledge. If you prefer the most in-depth option, please choose the consultant course.
For those interested in a career in holistic sleep consulting, our newly updated course with addition material and added value is a great place to start growing or perfecting your consulting practice. This 3-day course (live or online) is focused on all aspects of holistic, pediatric sleep conditioning and training, problem solving, and the science of consulting, all combined with the tools needed to help you successfully launch your business this year. Sleepwonders is an excellent complement to your existing newborn care specialist, doula, or sleep consultant training. This course was designed to elevate your knowledge of not only pediatric sleep, but of the root causes we often see in babies who have poor sleep habits. You’ll discover ways to improve how you manage your business, how you work with clients, and even how you approach sleep. 12 extended Modules are available online and on-demand (see the website for detailed curriculum and syllabus).
