reviews

Before we started the sleep training, our 2.5-year-old son had a lot of sleeping problems. He often skipped his afternoon nap, in the evening he had trouble falling asleep and in the night he often woke up and was difficult to get back into bed. Our son is now sleeping well again in the afternoon, falls asleep well in the evening and he almost always sleeps through the night. Marian's guidance was very helpful. She took all the time for our questions and to come up with a good plan. She was also honest in her feedback to us and did not take all the responsibility that lies with us as parents. We are happy that our life takes a lot less energy and willpower with this.

Harvey slept in our bed, we gave several bottles a night and put his pacifier back in his mouth about every hour. In short, our nights were busy. Of course we knew we weren't doing it right and we also knew that sleeping in his own bed would help. But we weren't sure where to start. In addition, we also had a lot of trouble crying and immediately jumped into action with every moan. Marian has taken us into the wonderful world of sleeping in an accessible way and has lovingly explained to us that what we do is not necessarily very helpful. We started step by step, filling in the log every morning and then quickly getting feedback for the upcoming night. He had a few tough nights and also a few relapses, but the result is definitely there; A super happy baby who sleeps from 19: 00 to approximately 6:30 a.m. Truly beyond all our expectations! What we experienced as very pleasant is the daily contact and the space that was available for questions. I think I asked the same question 5 times in different ways but it didn't matter to Marian. She gave us all the time and space and was also just clear and honest (we do need it as 2 stubborn people). Long story short. I would recommend it to everyone because a good night's sleep cannot be expressed in money. This investment pays for itself triple in a happy and well-rested family!

Our 3 year old son hasn’t been sleeping well for some time now. Things went from bad to worse and this ended in the situation where he was in bed with us almost every night. If we didn't accept that, he would get furious and scream everyone awake. Once that we were really done with it, we took the 'big' step to start working with Marian. In hindsight, this was the best choice; I actually didn't want to do it, it still feels like 'failure' if you call in external help. Now that we are 5 weeks later, I know that we could not have done this ourselves, even though the schedule, rules and method are actually quite simple. From never sleeping alone, never going to sleep alone and waking up many times a night, we put him in bed in 30 minutes in the evening, and we have to get out now and then at night because he wakes up from ' normal things. A world of difference within 3 weeks! Do it, do it, do it!!!!

Our daughter slept very little since birth and most of all wanted to be with someone. With partly sleeping together, we have been able to deal with that to some extent and enjoyed it as well! But after 1.5 years we noticed that it did not work anymore because nobody was sleeping well. Marian listened to our situation without judgment and offered different strategies without pushing us. This allowed us to choose what suited us and our daughter. Still on the advice of Marian, we went for the chair method. After 2 days we already broke the pattern! Ok, it finally took over a month for the rhythm to really stabilize, but I can now write that our dragon falls asleep by herself, consistently sleeps through every night from 20:00 - 7:00 and takes afternoon naps of an hour, no matter where (daycare, home, grandparents)!

With Marian's personal and non-judgmental approach, she quickly helped us to see how we can help our daughter fall asleep on her own. She asks the right questions and immediately gives practical tips to our questions. We get to work with a clear sleep plan and receive feedback & tips every day. Very nice, because after a period of little sleep, this is the support you need to really get going. As a result, our daughter picked up the training quickly and our sleep has returned after 1 year and 8 months. What a relief, thank you Marian for all your help & support!

We have a 2.5 year old daughter who woke up 2 or 3 times every night. She was then breastfed and went back to sleep. The broken nights in combination with breastfeeding became too much for me. Under the guidance of the coach, my daughter has learned a new rhythm, no more breastfeeding because it was no longer necessary and most importantly, sleeping through the night. Good advice, easy to apply and empathetic. Recommended for everyone.

Our son woke up several times a night, we got into disagreements about what to do at those times because structurally we couldn't sleep longer than 4-5 hours in a row. In addition, he only slept in the box during the day and not in his own bed. Marian has given us tools on how to deal with waking up at night and sleeping in his own bed. In addition, she also made a custom plan for us with target times for his naps during the day. The nights soon went much better, the naps during the day required a bit more training, but this too is gradually becoming more stable. We now face the nights with confidence.

Marian has been a great help to us and the sleep training has worked extremely well. We are now more than two months later and our 3-year-old son usually sleeps through the night in his own bed. If he does come out at night, he goes back to bed without complaining. Before we started, we thought "we should be able to do that ourselves?" However, it were the very small things that felt unnatural but which we used that made our son keep on climbing out of bed. In a week or two we managed it together with Marian ! (Thanks again :)

Incredible! Within three days, our 7-month-old baby went to bed without crying and learned to sleep independently. A difference of day and night. 
When our baby was 5 months old, he got sick for the first time after his vaccinations. We then had a period of two months with broken nights, bottled milk again and rocking at night. Putting it down immediately resulted in crying and if we were lucky he would go to sleep. Once woke up twice and then three or four times a night. Then we knew we had to get help and we got it from Marian. A nice personal conversation and a plan of action. Our overtired baby needed a new rhythm and had to learn to fall asleep on his own when he woke up. We went to work with fixed bedtimes and to an earlier bedtime of 6:00 PM. We were 100% committed to making this happen so we did exactly as Marian suggested. With the interval method, our son would learn to fall asleep on his own. The first day and evening was as expected howling..he finally fell asleep at 8pm and slept through until 7am..on the first night of sleep training! Incredible. Then we knew it would be okay and it gave us courage for the days after. In fact, it got better every day. Less and less crying and even after a few days no crying or wheezing when put to bed. What a relief this was. And we can function again and are super happy with all the info we have received! Thank you Marian!

We are very happy with Marian's sleep coaching. Our 9 month old daughter couldn't fall asleep on her own. She only fell asleep at the breast, when we rocked her or in the pram. She hardly ever slept through the night. We were a bit skeptical beforehand whether sleep coaching would have an effect, but after only 3 days we noticed a huge difference. Within 1 week she fell asleep on her own, with little or no crying. She now also sleeps through the night and takes 2 very good, long naps during the day. Thanks to Marian we had a good plan to follow through. She is very interested, kind, understanding and encouraging. Her daily messages help enormously to keep it up. We now have a good rhythm and a good sleeper! Putting to bed is done in no time and she will be dreaming wonderfully in no time.

Our daughter, who is almost 3 years old, has been going to bed with great crying/screaming for a few months now. The whole going to bed ritual took at least an hour and before she fell asleep we were busy until late. Her sleep was also very restless with a lot of waking up in between to eventually end up in bed with us. After many well-intentioned advice, consulted websites and fiddled with various "solutions" it was ready. We were all so tired and stressed... Something had to be done. Via via we came to Marian. After a short introduction our problem was clear and Marian had a plan for us! Finally someone who really understood and had a plan we could stick to. After 3 days of sleep training, our daughter slept through the night. We didn't know what we were experiencing. It worked! After a few more days of fine-tuning, we now have a daughter who goes to sleep well and wakes up rested. And mom and dad too. Marian really helped us so much. We can really recommend her.

We had a lot of trouble getting our son to sleep. He was unable to fall asleep on his own. The result is a lot of frustration and crying. We found it difficult to tell if there was really a problem but it got worse and we saw babies around us that you could just put down and fall asleep. We tried methods ourselves with running away and letting them cry, but this went against our feelings and we didn't feel unhappy about this ourselves. Besides that, it really didn't help us. So we wanted a kinder way to help him sleep. That's how we came to the sleep coach. Marian is very open, helpful and quick. She makes a nice plan based on our wishes. She gives very fast and targeted feedback so that you can take really big steps in two weeks. After a few days, our son was able to fall asleep on his own. We had to coach him and it took a while but there was progress. He could! But was it tough and Marian supported us and gave us the right feedback to keep going and not to fall back. He can now go to sleep on his own, sometimes faster than other times and sometimes not yet, but that's okay and we're still working on it. He no longer needs feeding at night and even sleeps around the clock most nights.

We found Marian's guidance very helpful, she listened well and we were able to regularly tune in between. We really experienced that we were not unique in our situation and that was quite reassuring! With a touch of humor Marian helped us through the tough nights and also held up a mirror to us, something that still helps us a lot!

Our daughter Jalou has suffered from short nights for months. Sleeping late, waking up early, tired during the day and grumpy, resulting in a lot of misunderstanding and frustration at home. Through Marian's training we got a grip on Jalou's rhythm, we gained more insights into sleep rhythms, the reason for sleep and the way we sleep. The result is that Jalou sleeps longer, sleeps better, wakes up cheerfully and is the cheerful nice lady again. To top it all off, we are also making regular nights again. Good to take this step as a parent and learn! An absolute must.

A toddler who never slept through the night from her 2nd birthday on and finally only slept when mom and dad were in bed became a super sleeper! After 2 tough weeks of sleep training in which we all had to get into a new rhythm, we finally managed to sleep in our own bed again and sleep through. What a relief!! Really nice to be coached by Marian, you definitely need that after sleepless nights ;) thanks Marian for the great training!!

Our son was a difficult sleeper from birth. Despite our efforts, we were unable to get him into a good rhythm, fall asleep on his own and take naps longer than 30 minutes. Marian came up with a clear plan that let us know what to do. The contact with Marian was immediately very pleasant and she assisted us with advice. We found it especially exciting because our son was so young and there was plenty of room for that. Marian took this into account. And what quick results we had without too many tears! He can fall asleep on his own without a pacifier, the daytime naps became longer, he can link sleep cycles and the nights have become a lot calmer too. It is well worth the investment. We can really recommend Marian!

Our daughter slept very badly and slept very little. During the day she was very sleepy and cried a lot because she was tired. During the sleep training she really came to rest because of the structure that we have brought into it together with Marian. Marian's coaching is very nice, you could ask her anything and she is very professional!

Before the sleep coaching started, we often had no free time in the evening. It could take until 9:30 pm before it would be quiet - and the youngest only fell asleep when he was lying next to us. We were tired during the day, because he often woke up around 3 or 4 am, and only fell back asleep with us. The coaching has helped us to choose a new sleeping habit together. To work on a fixed structure and more consistency for the children. It works. They now fall asleep much faster, the youngest sleeps through the night, and I see that they are more rested during the day - and so are we.

Our 10-month-old son woke up several times a night and then briefly needed us to get back to sleep. After 1 day of sleep training, he already managed to fall asleep on his own! It then took a bit longer before our son really got into the rhythm and slept long enough during the day. We have therefore extended the sleep training with an additional week, which was very nice. Now he (usually) falls asleep on his own within fifteen minutes and sleeps through the night! He still wakes up every day around 5.30 am, he is still an early bird… We are very happy with the improvements. Not only does he sleep better, we also see that he is a lot happier!

Our 8 months old daughter was hours awake in the night for months and also woke up a lot in the evening. Daytime naps were difficult as well. Marian helped us a lot by creating a suitable sleeping plan. Within a few days, our daughter was sleeping longer and longer and the afternoon naps were no longer a struggle. We've even had a few nights where she's almost slept around the clock! We experienced the contact with Marian and her feedback as very pleasant. Thank you Marian for your great help!

We loved Marian’s approach. She’s very open and interested not only in the issue itself, but in the family and situations altogether. We also like that she’s very attentive to small details and knows what to pay attention to. We’ve had issues with our sons sleep for more than 1.5 years and now finally we can sleep through the night! It was very encouraging to have a daily feedback messages on the training progress and to have all our questions answered very quickly.

We have struggled for a long time with our daughter's sleep. She had always been a difficult sleeper but with time putting her into bed became more and more difficult. In the end it took 3 hours for her to sleep and it was usually not in her own bed. After reading and trying a lot ourselves, we came into contact with Marian. At first I was a bit skeptical, but after a few evenings of putting our daughter to bed with Marian's coaching, there was a world of difference. Within a week we had a good sleep rhythm. We are very satisfied!

Before we started the sleeptraining with Marian, our 9-month-old daughter slept was a very bad sleeper. During the night, she fell asleep well, but woke up about 15 times per night. We thought, it is part of the deal, don't complain, but it was grueling. We have gone through our routines, ways of comforting her, and habits thoroughly with Marian. Marian then came up with a plan for us to deal with our sleepless lady. She guided us in a pleasant and professional way. And the result? Within three days she slept through! It's possible! And broken nights do not have to be part of it. We now thoroughly enjoy a happy baby and she enjoys rested parents . For us, Marian is a real superhero.

After 5 years of struggling with our middle daughter who was not sleeping well, we decided to call for help. In those 5 years we had already tried everything. Sometimes a method worked for a while, but nothing helped permanently and we quickly fell back into a wrong pattern. After another terrible night it was time for action and we came in contact with Marian. After a nice online introduction, where we discussed a sleepplan and approach, we started with renewed energy. Initially a bit skeptical, because we 'had already tried everything' and 'actually knew everything'. The first nights were tough. Fortunately, Marian guided us from day to day, which allowed us to persevere. And after a few days we reached a turning point and started to see results. After 2 weeks we completed the sleeptraining with the desired result: our daughter stays in her bed and sleeps through the night! The sleep coaching did not teach us so much new methods (we had tried a lot ourselves), but what made the difference is that we were fully guided in the correct application of the most suitable method. We have learned to be (really) consistent, what to pay extra attention to and how to approach situations. These are tools / insights that we can use every time, if necessary (now also with our 1.5 year old son). The contact with Marian was very nice and smooth and the coaching from Marian really made the difference for us. If only we had done this (much) sooner!

After 14 months with short and broken nights (read: falling asleep very late and 4-6 times per night awake), we decided to call in some help with learning our daughter to fall asleep by herself. Besides that, I also found it hard to stop with the breastfeeding. Very soon we got our evenings and night sleep back with the help of Marian! We felt a “click” from the beginning and the intake went smooth. With a clear and personal plan we started. After the first night we already saw improvement! Besides that, we also stopped with breastfeeding in the night from day 1. Now, after 1,5 months, our little girl is doing great! It doesn’t matter where she sleeps… she sleeps! And this all with few tears, lots of love and great support during the “kickstart” of 2 weeks. Thanks Marian!

Near despair we called Marian. For more than a year we shared our bed with Luuk, who sometimes would wake up multiple times (up to 6 times) a night for a feed. We had the intake within a week, and we could start the same evening. That first night was very difficult, but very soon Luuk started to learn how to sleep. And then, he suddenly slept in his own bed, in his own room, in a sleeping bag and now falls asleep by himself. What a relief and what breathing space we have again! Everything under the pleasant guidance of Marian, exactly what we needed.

After 2 years of sleepless nights and early mornings with our son of 4 years old, Marian crossed our path. Exactly at the right moment, because we were exhausted. Her sleep training has brought us a whole new rhythm in two weeks with a toddler who falls asleep considerably earlier and sleeps through the night. With an extra advantage that he is a lot calmer during the day and his angry moods are limited and our evenings are really ours again. The early mornings (4.30 / 5.00) required a bit of a longer period, where Marian's motivational, clear and reflective daily response has given us the perseverance and confidence that with a consistent approach we will overcome this together with our toddler. We are very happy that we met Marian and recommend her to everyone.

Ever since she was born, our youngest daughter had sleeping issues and the nights took more and more energy from us. We waited with getting help until she was 10 months and now we can say that we should have done this much earlier! The solid plan and coaching of Marian – tailored to our personal situation – gave us a clear plan. After a few days the world looked already so much different and it felt that we got extra time back. We will definitely recommend Marian!

When we started the sleeptraining, our daughter just turned 3 years and since 5 months she has a brother. She slept very bad for the last 5 months. Everything was a challenge; bringing her to bed took a long time, she stayed awake very long, she woke up multiple times during the night and every day started too early. We did not have sleeping problems with our youngest but with his elderly sister! The sleeptraining helped us because we were too tired to stick to a routine ourselves. Marian created a clear plan for us, helped us to stay consistent and the logbook forced us to look at our own routines and habits. It took 3 weeks to break the patterns with our daughter, patterns that Marian noticed already in the beginning. We got encouraging feedback every morning via WhatsApp, which made it easier to push on for another day. The result is a miracle: she asks us whether she can go to bed, lays down nice and calm and sleeps through the night. The best thing for us is that her bed seems to be a place that she likes instead of a place filled with struggles and unrest.

Pepijn was since a couple of months very restless in the night, he woke up often and there were so many things we had to do to get him to fall asleep. When he also began to wake in the morning around 4/5 AM we called Marian. Marian takes a lot of time for a thoroughly intake and we really had a big say in the approach, which was nice for us. After a few nights of the sleeptraining we noticed result, but in the end it took over 2 weeks before he really was in a good rhythm with no nightwakings and waking up after 6 am. After 2 weeks we felt a bit discouraged, after not having the best result. It is very nice that Marian stays close to you and coaches you to stay on the right track. We finished the sleeptraining and we are not totally there yet. He still wakes up a little before 6 am and we hope that this will slowly gets better. We describe the coaching of Marian as personal, empathic and professional.

After restless months and a lot of effort to get our baby to sleep, finally he fell asleep by himself – around the age of 5 months. We did still have a lot of questions about how to deal with night feedings and how to improve and lengthen the naps. That is why we booked a sleep consult. During the consult, Marian gave us many tips and tricks to work with. And it worked! Besides the advice it was so nice to share our approach with a professional and get their expert view on it. I really recommend everybody to reach out for help when you experience sleeping problems with your baby. You get so much out of it. Marian gave us next to the advice about our youngest son, also the golden solution for the bed time routine for our toddler, something we are still grateful for every evening.

With the approach of Marian, the boys (2 and 4 years old) now sleep in time and they sleep through the night until 6.30 am! The coaching is very personal and focused on both the parents and the children. Definitely nothing standard but tailor-made.

We are so happy that we ended up with Marian! Our son has gone through a long hospital period that did not positively impact his sleeping pattern. That was why we could barely hold on with the broken nights and were looking for a sustainable solution. Our General Practitioner recommended us to talk to Marian and from the first moment it felt good. Marian is very professional, but also warm and empathic and really takes time for all our questions. She is pro-active and focused to help us coaching our son. Together with her we created the sleepplan and we were surprised that our son could sleep through the night within 1 night. Incredible, this was exactly what we needed and how wonderful that everybody has got his/her night rest back. Our son now sleeps through the night and we learnt so much about him by looking at him in a different way. That is why we also better understand the sleeping rhythm of our oldest daughter (4 years) and what works best for her.

We just could not get grip on the transition from 2 naps to 1 nap. After trying everything we started working with Marian. The “it’s just a phase and it will pass by” phase was long behind us. He would fall asleep at different times, the duration of the naps varied and was often too short which made it a struggle for him to get through the day. Of course, there are still exceptions now, but in general he now sleeps minimal 1,5 hours during his nap and he looks well-rested again. Positive changes were already visible after a few days, but to reach this you do have to step over your (and you child’s) boundaries. It was hard working for all parties and Marian is really the strong motivator that you need so hard to stay consistent and keep the faith. Marian is a very nice and attentive lady to work with. She responds fast and if needed multiple times per day. She is really there for you, listens very well and tries to let you see the positive side. And that is sometimes hard after you have been struggling with your child’s sleep for so long. We are very happy with Marian!

Our son could not fall asleep by himself. For every nap and sleep during the night he needed to be rocked into sleep, also when he woke up during his naps and night sleep. And this happened very often. With the coaching of Marian he learnt within a day to sleep by himself and in his own bed. After 3 days he slept for the first time through the night. We did not dare to dream of that before! Next to that he is much more relaxed during the day. As well as at daycare, where before sleeptraining he found it hard to get used to daycare, it goes much better now. Marian is very involved, flexible in making appointments and gives clear advice. Sleepcoaching at Marian is a big recommendation for everybody who has a child with sleep problems. It is worth the money!

Our son has had sleeping problems on and off since he was born. First because of a cow milk allergy, after that because of ear problems. After he got tubes in his ear sleep was no problem for a while, until last summer. He went back to bad sleeping, but now there was no medical cause. Falling asleep was ok, but somewhere between midnight and 2 am he woke up and was awake until the early morning (5 am). For months we slept just a few hours per night. We were exhausted. In the end, we got into contact with Marian. A very nice experience and with her coaching we learnt our son to sleep during the night. The process went faster than we expected and Marian gave us a lot of tips and tricks, also for the future. I would recommend her to anyone who has children that don’t sleep well.

My boyfriend and I wanted sleeptraining for our (second) daughter, because she was awake for at least an hour after feeding her in the night and she woke up very early (way before 6 o’clock) in the morning. Our goal was for her to fall asleep by herself, without our help. No rocking, holding hands, give the pacifier etc. The first 4 days were pretty hard (to not go there immediately when she cried), but after that it became easier and easier to follow the intervals. And now she sleeps without any help, even without a pacifier. She also falls asleep directly after the night feeding. She wakes up at 6 o’clock instead of earlier. We would love her to sleep a little longer, so we will continue training her. Marian helped us enormous, of course with her plan as well as through her daily coaching. Friendly but clear and leaving the choices with us but giving advice on what would work the best. I recommend everybody to work with her if you experience sleep “problems” with your child. It really helps, I would do it right away and not wait too long.

Marian helped us with our son who had fear of being abandoned. After a hospital admission he did not want to sleep alone in his bed anymore. Marian helped us helped us and our son by teaching him to fall asleep alone and sleep through the night. Because of her advice and coaching we now have the confidence to tackle any possible sleep problems in the future ourselves.

When we learned our twin a new sleep pattern, Marian coached us very well. They both sleep through the night as well as 2 long naps during the day. Great! Marian gave us tips and recommendations to learn us how to coach our sons in their sleep development. Now the daily coaching has finished, we really have the feeling that we can do this on our own.

I have had one consult by phone with Marian to explore if she could help me. After I consulted about 5 other professionals (and just as much approaches tried) Marian was very open and honest about where she was able (and where not) to add value. The conversation made me feel good and the valuable advice to keep an eye out for (sleep)signals of our son at the end of the day still help me every week. Thank you Marian, I will definitely recommend you in my network!

Our second son developed into a restless baby, he cried a lot and did not manage to fall asleep without us. His naps during the day were short, lacked rhythm and during the night we had to go to him very often. We looked for help with Marian. Our goal was to get him in a normal sleep rhythm, that would make him a happier baby and would also provide us with more sleep. I am truly positively surprised about the result that we achieved after 2 weeks of sleeptraining with Marian. With her clear and calm approach she showed us that we, as his parents, needed to start breaking the habits that we developed. The result is that we have a clear rhythm, the naps are much longer and as we speak he even sleeps through the nights. He became a much happier baby!

Thanks to Marian our twin daughters sleep through the nights after 2,5 years (now we also need to sleep through the nights … ;-) and in their own beds. Marian is positive and enthusiast and is full of good advice. We recommend everyone a training from Marian, just do it, it is worth every penny.

When we started the sleep training our baby was 6 months old and woke up every 30 minutes to 2 hours. Getting her (back) to sleep meant extensive rocking or nursing. Her dad was camping out next to her on a mattress every night. Her mom never left the house in the evening in case she needed nursing to calm done. We were completely exhausted. At the end of the 2-week program, we put her in her bed awake, give her a kiss and leave the room. She falls asleep by herself within minutes. Sometimes she still wakes up at night but can often put herself back to sleep or just needs a little bit of verbal reassurance from us. Our lives have completely changed. We are well rested, we have our evenings back and we sleep in the same bed again. It now feels like we can really enjoy our life as a family. We would definitely recommend her as a sleep coach. She is a very warm and compassionate person that clearly cares about babies (and parents!). She helped us stay on track and trust ourselves and our daughter. Her advice was tailored to our situation and to the way our baby was reacting to the process.

We had troubles with giving our daughter of 8 months a good sleep rhythm. She was constantly overtired because of that. We read books, searched the internet and decided to work with a specialist. We found a specialist in Marian. She brought us back on the right track in a great way, made a good plan and gave us daily feedback on the progress of that plan. Already in the first days of her coaching us we noticed a huge difference. We learnt to observe our daughter better and now understand how to react on her. During the 2 weeks of the sleeptraining we got valuable insights that gave us more control and trust in her sleep rhythm. Our daughter now sleeps through the night and that was exactly why we started working with Marian. As extra bonus she is much more happy and has more energy. A recommendation for parents who have a child with sleep problems!

We couldn’t be happier with Marian and the sleep coaching program we went through with her. Our daughter often woke up 3 or 4 times a night, only fell asleep while breastfeeding, and was virtually unable to sleep at daycare (20 minutes all day). We already saw results after about 3 days. She fell asleep alone, but was also able to fall asleep again in the middle of the night, making our nights a lot better. She also now naps 60-120 minutes at set times, also at daycare, falls asleep on her own in a few minutes and is therefore happier and more energetic than she ever was during the rest of the day. It was great to be able to work with Marian, and we especially appreciated the personal contact and the specific plan she developed for our daughter. Thanks for everything!

This was pretty unbelievable. Where she normally woke every 45 min (if you were lucky, otherwise even more often) and ended up in our bed more often, she was able to sleep through the whole night for the first time after a few days of sleeptraining! Really bizarre. It went back and forth in the beginning; a few days it went great and then a few days a bit less. But the last 4 night were awesome, she slept 12 hours straight! Overall we have more control over the situation when our daughter cries again in the evening or the night. We do now that she is able to do it herself. The fact that she can do it, comforts us. Sometimes it is hard and you have to be sharp to not fall back in old patterns, but it is so worth it! Marian is a nice and clear coach. She is very compassionate and shows understanding for the situation. At the same time she finds it important that you are dedicated and really want to go for change. And that is fair! That is the only way to make sure this really works in the end. And it clearly does : )

We did not expect it, but our children sleep longer, better and more consistent. They are both quiet and go to sleep at 7 pm. That is a dream that did not seem realistic before we started. We have our evenings and nights back and the children also seem to feel great. It is a win-win situation! An eye for detail, personal and clear. We really had the feeling that Marian coached us throughout the whole period and that we could go to her with our doubts and uncertainties. That gave us the self-confidence that we needed to continue and be persistent.

Our son sleeps in his own bed again, he learnt to fall asleep by himself without us to rock him and he sleeps through the nights! The first 2 nights we found very tough but very quickly after that we saw improvements and it became easier. We have our nights and evenings back and do not have any stress about the sleep of our son. We are so happy that we did the sleeptraining! From the first moment we met, we thought you are open, positive and enthusiastic. That helped us during the hard moments. You were able to explain us very well how sleep works with babies and because of that we have a much better idea of a sleep rhythm throughout the day. Your feedback on our sleeplog was always clear and useful and it was great that you were also available in between for questions! Thank you for your understanding, positivity, advice and persistence!

He was often awake at 9 pm (or even later) and ran around in the living room. The result was that the next day he was actually too tired to go to daycare. And next to that the daily crying of tired toddler. Mostly to also give the youngest one some rest, we decided that dad was going to sleep with his son in the guest bedroom. We did this for almost 3 months. After 2 weeks of sleeptraining everybody sleeps back in his own bed again and our son goes to bed 2 hours earlier than before. The most important thing is that we have our sweet and happy son back. Sometimes it was very tough, because it felt not natural to be so strict and set boundaries. At the same time, you realize that it is exactly this lack of discipline that brought us in this situation. Every day we got an audio-message with a pep-talk and feedback on the previous 24 hours, answers to all our questions and tips for the coming days. The daily messages gave us the opportunity to adjust our behavior to the new situation during the 2 weeks of sleeptraining; flexible customization!

Professional, fast and non-judgemental advice. Focused on our family situation. That is what the help of Marian makes great. And the result was to dream of. A lovely and quietly sleeping daughter. And so are we! Very special was that the advice was not only applicable for the sleep situation but also beyond that. The personal approach of Marian is great. The plan was applicable for our family situation and therefore fitted very well to us. The daily contact and quick feedback worked very well. She also really looked at our specific situation and not only “according to the book”. We are very grateful for her help.
