Pediatric Sleep Consultant certifcation course

It’s your turn to lead families toward better sleep


Your children are your world, but you’re itching to find your “own thing.” More income would be great, but you don’t want to sell shampoo or robotically answer calls for a company that doesn’t even know your name. You want meaningful work that goes beyond your home… that you can do FROM home.

Or maybe you have a career outside the home, on someone else’s schedule, but hate leaving your little ones to do a job that isn’t satisfying you.

Regardless of what you’re doing now

Working in the home, outside the home or serving as your tiny crew’s chauffeur 24/7…

You’re here because you’re searching for more. You’re here because your heart is just begging to serve.

You’re here because you’re passionate about baby and toddler sleep.

You came out of the trenches of exhaustion in the early days of motherhood, revived and feeling brand new after sleep training your baby.

You realized that your life was then separated into two parts: the one where your baby was up all night, and the one where she slept through the night…and life was never the same.

That experience sparks something in us mothers. We feel like we’ve been handed this secret we have to share with as many tired families as we can…


You’re ready to

But you’re scared you don’t have what it takes

The thought of owning your own business feels time consuming (and let’s be real, we’re already stretched too thin).

“But where would I find the TIME to start my own business? Time for all the legal stuff, marketing, website, contracts and all the unknown nitty gritty? Do I have to be an influencer now?!”

Trust us, we’ve been there. Your concerns are valid, but you’re in luck…those are the exact concerns we thought about when building The Cradle Coach Academy. We give you the in-depth training and education you need to confidently start building a business, but if owning your own business feels like too much, we teach you how to pursue a career with an existing agency and nail the job of your dreams.

“I am so thankful I didn’t let my fear stop me from taking this certification and pursuing a career I truly love.”


I am Jori Gardner, founder & lead sleep consultant for Crib Coach. I was born and raised in Southern Alberta and I have chosen to grow my family in this area as well. I married my Husband in the summer of 2015 and we welcomed our first son (Nolan) in June of 2017.

We were blessed to add our second son (Jaden) in March of 2020. I have now had the absolute privilege of working with thousands of families worldwide. I know that I have truly found my passion, especially when working with families and seeing their transformations. They transition from exhausted and stressed to excited, happy and empowered.


I was scared to start. I became a sleep consultant after I became a mom and honestly, this “job” found me. I was in the thick of raising a new baby and developed severe anxiety. I did don’t even realize it was happening until my mom pointed it out. I reached out for help and just like that, it went away. Not to say I don’t still deal with anxiety – because I do! In fact, the thought of getting certified as a baby and toddler sleep consultant was really scary. I remember asking Melissa, “How in the world will I even find a client?” And she quickly reassured me that she would give me everything I would need to make it happen but it was my passion that would really lead me. And that it has.


I took the leap and got certified as a pediatric sleep consultant at The Cradle Coach Academy. Soon after, I launched Crib Coach in January of 2019 and since have hired a full team of sleep consultants to my company that serve families all over the world. It really was the passion that led me to serve my clients well that they in return referred me time and time again. I am so thankful I didn’t let my fear stop me from taking this certification and pursuing a career I truly love.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Our Philosophy: While most programs educate on a specific method, at The Cradle Coach Academy we understand that every family and child are unique, so their sleep training methods should be too! Since we take a personalized approach to training, you will be educated on multiple approaches so you can guide your future clients to the method that they are comfortable with, and that suits their child’s personality and temperament! As a sleep consultant, you want to be sure you are seeing the entire situation from all angles, so we’ve brought in amazing instructors to continue the learning of sleep from each of their view points. This allows you to offer support and knowledge to your future clients.
  • Our Program: Most of our students are busy moms, and we know what that’s like! The idea of starting a new career and launching a new business can seem daunting. The Cradle Coach Academy has made Sleep Consultant Certification possible wherever you are and no matter your workload. Our program is entirely online, making it possible for you to study from any part of the world, and is completely self-paced! And your instructor is with you, walking along the sleep journey alongside you, to answer your questions, take your knowledge further and help you to see things in a perspective you will need to have as a pediatric sleep consultant.

I hesitated because of the money and I was able to pay off my initial investment in less than two months. I can’t thank you enough for offering a program that gave me the full training I needed as a sleep consultant and now allowing me to pursue my passion while I am home with my babies! Thank you!”

We educate on many methods and our goal always is for our clients to choose a method that is presented to them, that they are comfortable with, one that suits their child’s personality and temperament. We will offer our clients the guidance and support that is needed to make it through the process.
