Before the sleep coaching with Meike, our son (8M) only ever took power naps for a maximum of 30 minutes during the day. At night, at best, we never got over 2 hours. In addition, he could only fall asleep on his arm, singing, shocking and bouncing on the pezzi ball. At least that's what we thought, and we also walked him around the house at night for hours at a time. At one point, my husband and I were even sleeping in shifts and not in the same bed for a long time. Meike showed us how easy it can be and after about 2 weeks we were able to put our son down in his room, in his bed, awake and he fell asleep on his own!!! A dream come true for us before, thanks to Meike's advice and support. Everyone is sleeping much better and most importantly are more balanced. The daytime naps have also become better and longer and there is time again for household chores, laundry or just relaxing for a short while.
Even after the coaching was over or if there were setbacks again, Meike was there with advice and above all motivating words.

We too can only agree with the positive reviews. Our child has always had problems sleeping. After 2 years and several failed attempts to get the problem under control, we turned to Meike, desperate and exhausted. At that time our child was awake 2-5 times every night and only fell asleep again by carrying him around. After the first conversation with Meike, her understanding, professional and loving manner gave us hope that we would be able to get our problem under control. Even to us it still seems like a miracle how our child's sleep problem improved in a short time. The sleep coaching with Meike was a blessing for our whole family. Dear Meike.... We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that.... You are truly an angel!!!!

I attended Meike's workshop "Even superheroes need to sleep". Our son (14 months) could only fall asleep with a bottle, in the stroller or in the car. At night he woke up two to five times and could also only fall asleep again with a bottle. During the day he often slept only 30 minutes and was then awake.
After we implemented Meike's tips, he slept directly the first night without a bottle and only woke up once. It's not much that we changed, but it had a big effect. Since then, he sleeps in his bed, no longer needs a bottle, and even spends his nap time of 1.5 to 2 hours in his bed. Since then he is much more balanced and cheerful, because he finally has a good night's sleep.
Thank you very much dear Meike, you have helped us a lot :-)

When we finally turned to Meike, we had already tried several months of internet tips, well-intentioned advice and much more. We were, after almost 4 months, in which our then 8.5 month old daughter was awake at times every 15 minutes at night and wanted something to drink, just so tired and helpless. To us, all the advice was worth trying as long as we didn't hear: let her cry it out, or eventually she'll be asleep when she's cried herself tired. I paid attention to sleep times, signs of tiredness, regularities, etc., we had a bedtime routine since birth. But we only ever changed individual components, which had never led to longer sleep intervals. I then read a lot about sleep coaching sometime after Christmas, but was somewhat reluctant to accept this help because of the price. But desperation eventually drives you to try it out and say to yourself, no matter what it costs, we'll try it now. And looking back, I have to say how stupid it was that all three of us struggled for 4.5 months. Somehow you think it's just a "phase" and it will pass. And it certainly does, the only question is whether you want to endure it and expose yourself and your child to this agonizing lack of sleep or whether you would rather accept help.
Meike was and is a blessing: already in our first conversation I thought: Mega, we'll get it together. And that's how it was: she came, changed several "set screws" and not just one like we always did. And lo and behold: already in the 2nd night our daughter slept several hours at a stretch. Meike was always there with advice and an open ear and to this day (our daughter is now 13 months) asks how things are going....
And what can I say: after a short time, our daughter got out of the habit of eating at night by simply sleeping through the night.
Currently she is switching from 2 naps to 1, getting 4 molars at once and sleeping in her own room is still to come- so it remains exciting, but we are very confident that we will also master these challenges and suddenly sleeping is fun for everyone!
Knowing Meike would help if necessary makes us feel very relaxed about the upcoming sleep challenges....

Meike, thank you thank you! And you wouldn't know it: she can still climb in the light as well as in the dark and now running comes along with it ! :)

I was honestly a bit skeptical at first...but thought it was worth a try and contacted Meike. I have never regretted this call! Within a very short time, everything really changed. My child would only fall asleep at the breast and would immediately start screaming loudly as soon as I put him to bed. We now have this energy-sapping time behind us. Even after the coaching, in uncertain moments, Meike was still there for us. Thank you so much Meike! Without your help we probably wouldn't have made it!

Thanks to Meike's help, our son falls asleep alone in his
room alone and sleeps for 11 to 12 hours at a time. This was previously unimaginable for us. If I had to describe Meike in words I would say: AN ANGEL WHO MAKES MIRACLES! 🥰

Before we contacted Meike, our nights were very very exhausting. Our daughter woke up every hour and screamed until we got her out of bed and held her in our arms until she eventually fell asleep again, if she didn't prefer to do gymnastics. She wanted everything but to continue sleeping. Thanks to dear Meike, we have managed to get our daughter to fall asleep on her own in her bed and now she wakes up max. 1-2 times at night, but falls asleep again after a few moments - and without any screaming. Falling asleep is now a matter of a few minutes and no longer hours. She is also much more balanced during the day as a result. Of course, this requires discipline on the part of the parents, but you have a goal in mind. We can recommend sleep coaching to all parents who have problems with their baby's sleep. We are absolutely thrilled and happy.

When we contacted the lovely Meike, our nights were one big torture. Our two boys (twins 10 months old) woke up every hour and just wanted to be rocked. Meike managed to turn the right screws in us and also to solve emotional blockades. Of course, there were also setbacks, but we are already very satisfied with the current situation that one of the two already sleeps through the night and his brother usually only wants the bottle once a night.

We are very grateful to Meike for her work and can only recommend her to everyone.

As a midwife, I have already looked after a few families in which the children have displayed one or the other "strange" sleep pattern. And suddenly we as a family were in a situation where everything we had learned was useless, we didn't know how to help ourselves and the lack of sleep was literally taking our minds away. For a long time I thought about contacting Maike, because you also hear some negative things about sleep coaching. And yet I dared to take the step.
At that time our son was already 8 months old, from birth not a good sleeper, during the day he usually did not manage more than 20-30 minutes, at night if it went well sometimes 1 1/2- 2 hours.
In addition, when we contacted Maike, the little one was awake every 30 minutes. Fell asleep in the evening after 60-90 minutes of strong crying only with protest to the chest and was then awake again after 30 minutes and could usually only be calmed with the chest.
So it repeated itself the whole night...
Our coaching with Maike showed quick success, that falling asleep worked quickly without problems and also the sleep duration has extended to 4-5 hours.
The nightly breastfeeding reduced to 2x the night.
Of course, there were also exhausting nights during the coaching, but many things just need time and patience and with a lot of encouragement and many motivating phone calls with Maike, we have also mastered this time. We are very grateful to you.

Finding Meike via the internet was a real hit for us and has truly changed our family life.
About our story:
In October 2020 our second daughter was born and our world was perfect! In June 2021, however, I googled sleep coaching on the Internet in desperation because I was pretty much at the end. Because our youngest fell asleep exclusively at the breast or when she was carried to sleep. During the day she hardly slept longer than 30 minutes and was then awake again....
She came in the night about every 2 hours, wanted to be nursed every time and sometimes we had to carry her around for ages afterwards until she made it back to sleep. The "we"
was mostly limited to me, because she mostly only wanted mommy. She especially liked to sleep "on" me and then didn't want to be put down in her own bed. Since our older daughter with 2 1/2 years was also not a good sleeper and also a total mommy-child, the nights became a horror, because one of the two was always awake.
Already after the first phone call with Meike there were the first small successes: At least the little one didn't fall asleep at the breast anymore and I didn't carry her around the living room for hours to get her to sleep.
However, the big improvement did not come for a while and I was often very frustrated. The little mouse had a cold all the time and was having a hard time breathing, it felt like every night there was something different keeping her awake. It took several weeks (and I think Meike got a few gray hairs because of me ;-)) until she could make it clear to me with her tireless patience that it is ME who needs clarity and not only a defined goal. But also a safe and firm way to get there!
A short time later, the little one fell asleep all by herself in her own bed, didn't need any more milk and usually made it back to sleep herself when she woke up during the night. Sometimes she needed a few soothing words or a hand on her chest and then she was able to fall asleep again.
In the meantime, the two girls can sleep in the same room and no longer wake each other up. Through the sleep coaching for the little one, even the sleep of the big one has changed. She now also falls asleep on her own and very rarely needs us at night.
We thank Meike from the bottom of our hearts! She is a very warm-hearted, humorous, patient woman and she is mercilessly honest at the right moment ;-) She has definitely found her calling as a sleep coach!

I have to say, when we turned to Meike, we were on the verge of a nervous breakdown due to lack of sleep.
Of course, it was also work, but with Meike's help our little girl sleeps through.

Dear Meike,
Before we started "working" with you, our son would wake up exactly 30 minutes after falling asleep and could only be put back to sleep by carrying him. This repeated itself the whole night. He woke up almost every hour and only fell asleep again by being carried around. Unfortunately, he often could not be put down, which turned it into a real fight. My partner and I were physically exhausted and rarely had more than four hours of sleep per night.
Already 3 days after the implementation of your advice, a significant improvement was achieved. We don't have to carry him to fall asleep or to continue sleeping and he only wakes up twice a night. By speaking softly and laying his hands on him for a short time, we are able to get him to continue sleeping. He has learned to regulate himself and usually finds his way to sleep by himself. Also his nightly bottle became superfluous. Already after the first night he did not ask for it anymore.
We can hardly believe our luck and are incredibly grateful. We would never have believed that this could be possible so quickly.
In addition, you were always available and accompanied us very closely.
Thank you!

Dear Meike,
thank you very much for your coaching.
We have managed that the little one (9 months) sleeps through the night in his bed. The beginning was exhausting but nothing compared to the nights before with hourly breastfeeding.
We are happy that we are getting more sleep again and the little one has also finally found his rest at night.
Thank you for your support!

Best regards

Hello Meike,

I would like to thank you again for everything! Bringing to bed is almost fun and it works great with dad too! 😍 we put them down and go out and that's it ... I still can not believe it and am so incredibly grateful that we were allowed to experience this and do not have to continue to face a Kamof every night!
Thank you!

Dear Meike,
I wanted to give you some feedback. I have implemented your tips directly on the same evening, after the workshop. After 3/4 of an hour, my little one had to cry for half an hour. I have always shown her that I am with her. After that she slept more calmly than she had in weeks. And since then we have no more drama in the evening. I'm usually down again after 10-15 minutes 😍🤷🏽♀️ I don't know anything what happened but it's a dream. Without music, without drinking, without anything, she just falls asleep all alone in her bed now. Sometimes I have to put my hand on her belly that she notices that I am there. But when I notice she is about to fall asleep I can take her away and she just sleeps.🤩
It was just little things that we have changed thanks to you, these little things have made a big difference. Even during the day, sleeping is much better now.
The lecture has really brought us further. Thanks a lot

For me it was the best decision to contact Meike. When I called Meike, the situation was such that our son (at that time 11 months) fell asleep only at my breast and that lasted in the evening easily times 1-2 hours and mostly he was awake again after 20 minutes or at the latest 1 hour and then I could never say exactly how long it would take until I could go out of the room again. At noon it was the same situation, when he fell asleep I either had to go back in after 20 minutes or I just stayed there so that he at least slept a little longer. Thanks to Meike I managed to wean him and I put him to bed, can leave the room and he falls asleep alone. I would never have thought that it would work. It was a bit of work, but Meike was always there for me, I always reached her, she answered directly and helped me and motivated me. Even my husband can now lay him down without any problems, which I really would never have thought possible before :-) I thank Meike from the bottom of my heart and I am also glad to have met her, we also laughed a lot :-) I can only recommend to everyone to do a sleep coaching it is worth it in any case.

Hello dear Meike 🤗

I would like to thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I had really already given up hope and thought that I probably get the next few years no more sleep.
Our initial situation was that our mouse fell asleep only carrying, rocking with sounds app and also cried bitterly and also woke up after 30 minutes and without exception. I always had to lie down with her so she slept longer. At night she woke up again and again and cried terribly.
Through your coaching, we were able to achieve in a few weeks that she sleeps in her crib during the day, she falls asleep in less than 10 minutes and also no longer wakes up after 30 minutes, but finds her way back to sleep on her own and then even sleeps for 2 hours at a time. If she wakes up during the night, I gently put my hand on her chest and then she just continues to sleep. I really have to say, if we can do this, with your help, anyone can. As you know, I had the desire to do the whole thing step by step, so that both our mouse and I have time to adapt to a new situation and that's exactly how you then designed the coaching for us. We are infinitely grateful to you ❤️❤️❤️

I can only give 5 stars everywhere, something else would be out of the question.
Just 2 weeks ago, our son Tim, 9 months, was awake every hour from 11 pm.
Then everything was tried from A like arm taking to Z like encouragement until he slept again. If he then fell asleep again, I still needed something until I was asleep again. It felt like 5 minutes later the same game.
We knew no more advice and have contacted the dear Meike. After a phone call she visited us at home.
We were allowed to pour out our hearts. She listened to everything patiently and explained some circumstances to us.
After that I immediately started with more understanding for Tim.
She gave us a lot of tips and advice for the day. What can I say.
I immediately started to implement the advice during the day. After almost 2 weeks I can say.
Everything works great.
He sleeps during the day 2 naps in his bed, time for household, prepare food or just a cup of coffee for me.
After 1 1/2 weeks was the first night that Tim slept through. I would never have guessed that it would work so well so quickly.
I can only give the advice to everyone. Don't wait as long as I did until you call Meike. Do it when you have the feeling that you have almost no strength during the day.
We were in constant contact after the meeting, so we were able to discuss and improve any hurdles that arose.
I can't thank Meike enough and recommend her 100%.

Maike is our savior with her coaching.
Our sleep situation was a disaster before the coaching and put a lot of stress on us as a family. Our daughter had turned night into day. Before we knew Meike, we went to bed between 6:00 and 8:00 in the morning and didn't get up until the afternoon, and of course our daughter could only sleep in her parents' bed. She also hung on my chest all the time and as soon as you wanted to take her away she woke up. We were helpless and didn't know what to do. Meike gave us tips and advice that are simply incredibly effective. After a few days, my daughter was finally able to fall asleep without the breast. After 1.5 weeks she slept in her bed and has done so ever since. After four weeks, our daughter is sleeping perfectly. She has set bedtimes, sleeps in her bed and does so without a breast. My boyfriend can also put her down and I can sit on the couch in the evening and relax (after 14 months of sleep terror). Meike has always been there for us even when we had a little frustration phase in between. If we had problems or open questions, we could simply write and got an answer directly. She also built me up again more than once and told me that it was worth it to persevere. If we had known how well the coaching works, we would have used it much earlier. My daughter is much more balanced and happy since she has been sleeping better. I can't thank Meike enough for the incredible help.
