I'll guess I stick with a famous singer's words:"it's a kind of magic"
I work with busy, loving and smart parents like you, who love their child to bits!
The only problem is that they are going completely mental because little one won’t sleep and hence they don’t get any shut eye either.
You would never have thought that this lack of sleep would make you feel like you are losing your mind! You would choose sleep over ANY OTHER activity in a day, and yes, having sex included!
Together we WILL GET YOU SLEEP! We will find a solution which you will feel completely comfortable with and THAT WORKS! Come wine o’clock, you can simply enjoy that fine glass of vino, relax, get a manicure or your hair done, watch TV, meet friends, go shopping: the world’s your oyster (again)!

Praise for my work:
When Christine came to see us Max was 3 months old. We spend all of our evening trying to get him to sleep and sometimes it took us up to 3 hours to do so. It was exremely exhausting and we were worrying a lot. During the day he barely slept and if he did it was just for 30 minutes. He was tired all day long and not well-balanced.
Through Christine we learned how to create a daily rhythm, which is now helping Max to have 2 to 3 naps during the day that very often last up to 2 hours. In the evening he falls asleep without any trouble, it only takes 10 minutes and he's fast asleep (no matter who is putting him down). Through Christine Max is much more balanced and when he is awake we can truly enjoy our time together :)
We called Christine because we were at our wits end. Our Lily had stopped sleeping through the night ever since she started daycare and her naps during the day were not good either. I immediately felt understood an we were presented with methods that would help Lily learn to fall asleep independently. After 3 nights Lily slept through the night and ever since she's become a real sleepyhead, because now her naps are great too. We are ecstatic and we're wondering why we didn't write to Christine earlier on. We can highly recommend her!
Exhausted and severely sleep deprived juggling 15 month old twins and a 5 year old daughter (with a handicap) I felt helpless, grumpy and at a loss of ideas on how to fix the situation. Some nights I would get 1 hour of sleep between the 3 of them and then have to continue my daily routine day after day feeling like a zombie :( Our paediatrician suggested we consult with Sleep like a Baby to seek advice on how to resolve our sleepless nights. With Christine’s support and schedule she set up for the twins we had them sleeping through the night in the same room from 18.30 – 7.30 in the morning within 3 days without much heartbreak or fuss. The energy level in our family has picked up allowing us to have more fun and in general not being irritable and grumpy.
We were very happy with the Sleep like a baby program. We had not really found the right rhythm for our 9 months old baby, making the night sleeping as well as the daytime naps quite challenging. She had only short daytime naps, and often woke up at night. However, after just a couple of days with Christine Hansen's program, we noticed remarkable improvements. Our baby became a lot more confident and was able to fall asleep on her own. Now she sleeps peacefully throughout the night. Her daytime naps have also improved a lot.
I was constantly overly tired at work and had to pass on a lot of important tasks and delegate them to a colleague as I was just not up to it. I tried sleeping every spare minute because my health was suffering due to the stressful situation with Jules. Because of the sleep deprivation my immune system was very weak and my Borreliosis was therefore doing considerable harm. Even though he doesn't sleep through the night every night he falls asleep much, much easier and all the good advice is helping me to be much calmer and to be more positive about it. Christine shows compassion and you finally feel understood as a mom. I would recommend her immediately. No matter what there will be an improvement
"Frida didn't want to sleep in her bed anymore and getting her to sleep was a very lengthy and troublesome process. She woke up often at nighttime, 2-4 times a night and then it was also difficult to get her back to sleep. I was clearly suffering from the lack of sleep and not having slept through the nights the whole process of getting her to sleep was very stressful for me because I knew that it would take ages.
I was very insecure which was actually the heart of the matter. I felt overwhelmed and alone with the Situation. I needed help from an external, neutral person with experience and professionalism. I thoroughly enjoyed he daily phone calls in the first phase. The exchange and reassurance in this phase of change was extremely important for me an empowering. Christine has a way of fostering trust, she is open, helpful and understanding.
My verdict: DO IT! Everyone has to decide for himself, but if you are a nervous wreck, then it is definitely worth trying. The worst that can happen is that nothing changes or everything changes. My family's quality of life has improved tremendously. Worth every penny! I also realised through our work together how well my daughter reacts to structure and so I applied it to our daily activities. I'd recommend it to everyone who has children and who considers bedtime as difficult or who has children that aren't well balanced."
"Our child had a lot of difficulties finding his way to fall asleep. It often took a very long time, even when he was being carried around in our arms. Once he finally fell asleep, he would often wake up (every 30 minutes for hours on end) and it would always take a while to get him to fall back asleep. Our child’s sleep was suddenly our most discussed topic and it started to strain our relationship too. That is why we decided to get in touch with Christine and we are very happy about having taken this decision.
Our little one is sleeping on his own in his bed and if he awakes during the night he is able to fall asleep on his own again. He is just as happy as before if not even more balanced than previously. A further benefit, which we hadn't really expected, is that we have much more time for ourselves again. We especially appreciated the direct feedback (via phone or email) and the personal support and direct contact (a book can't answer any questions). It is also important to know that this is a gradual, progressive and not radical method. We would recommend this to any family who have a child having difficulties falling asleep and not sleeping through the night"
"When we started working with Christine our son was 9 months old and waking up every 2 hours to be nursed at night. Right from the first day of applying her method, he slept 12 hours through the night. From 7 o’clock in the evening until 7 o’clock in the morning. What helped me most was that I always knew that someone was available whenever any issues would arise. An advantage, which we became aware of at a later point, was that I had much more time for myself again, because Mil is sleeping much more regularly. I’d recommend Christine to anyone who also doesn’t get his own healthy sleep because of his children over a longer period of time!"
Since we worked with Christine Hansen our son isn't calling us throughout the night anymore, as he did previously. Before he used to call us 3-4 times a night and couldn't get any consolidated sleep. Our 1 year old son adapted to the whole new method really easily and we think that he will stick with it because he has figured out himself how easy sleeping can be. We especially appreciated Christine's warmth and her true interest in the children. Moreover, there isn't any witchcraft or spell casting involved but everything is based on common sense and it isn't unnatural or taking ages and ages. Plus the child is always the focus and taken care of. She simply provides a certain security. Going to sleep is suddenly so much easier and the children are definitely in a better mood when getting up in the morning.
"We saw how much Cléo was suffering from being sleep deprived and we just didn't know how else we could help her. What we liked best about working with Christine was her availability and her patience to answer every question. We were absolutely happy with her work! Other families should definitely go for it. Because it really helps the whole family!"
"It confirmed our approach and made us aware of what we had to pay attention to in order to help our little one to learn how to sleep well. I learned in detail about children’s sleep and how it develops in the first weeks. I would recommend Christine’s consultations because they don’t take too much of your time yet are very informative."
