Sleep Consulting Reviews

Newborn Sleep Consulting

"Christine and Bella Luna Sleep Saved Us!"
Mariah, mom to 2-month-old girl

Christine and Bella Luna Sleep saved us! Our two-month-old had significant sleep issues, refused to be put down and cried constantly. We tried everything we could think of and consulted with our pediatrician numerous times. After food elimination from mom's diet without relief, our doctor recommended putting a pause to breastfeeding and begin formula in an attempt to calm our daughter.
This was incredibly difficult and emotional for me(mom).

Immediately after our consult with Christine, we implemented the steps and measures she recommended and our daughter slept for 12 hours that night! She is napping in her crib and the fussiness and crying have significantly decreased.
She taught us calming techniques and provided us with a wealth of information and resources on how to calm our fussy child!

We were able to resume breastfeeding and now have a happy baby that loves her sleep! We went from a baby that cried nearly 15 hours a day to intermittent, brief periods of crying when hungry.

We highly recommend Christine and Bella Luna Sleep! Thank you for giving us our sleep and happy baby back!

Babies Sleep Consulting

"Christine Saved My Sanity! "
Sarah, mom to a 4-month-old boy, NH

Christine saved my sanity! I reached out to Christine exhausted and pretty hopeless. I had a 4-month-old who would only sleep while being held. He would only nurse himself to sleep and I was essentially a human pacifier. During the day, he wouldn’t let me put him down so in order to get anything done I would have to put him in the ergo baby and go about my day. Before Christine, he wouldn’t sleep more than maybe 30 minutes at a time! He was nothing like my 4-year-old and I had no idea where to begin. I needed help. Christine was extremely knowledgeable, nonjudgmental and walked me through the process step by step. I’m not a regimented person by nature so I was nervous to follow a rigid program. Christine tailored a plan that worked for me and my family and I couldn't be more thankful. I’m happy to say my baby takes 3 naps a day and sleeps 10-12 hours every night in his crib! Amazing! From the bottom of this well-rested mom’s heart, thank you, Bella Luna!

"She Helped Me To Realize I Do Not Have To Live My Life As A Walking Zombie"
Ryan, mom to 5-month-old LJ, MA

Christine with Bella Luna Sleep Consulting is so much more than a sleep consultant. She is a miracle-worker, a giver of hope, a therapist, a shoulder to cry on, a friend, a reassuring voice,  and a mommy you want in your tribe.

When I first reached out to Christine, I was operating on 3 hours of sleep a night. My then 5-month old little man was taking unpredictable naps and waking every 1-2 hours all night long. I resorted to co-sleeping in a desperate attempt to get whatever sleep I could, which left my husband on the couch because I was afraid to have all three of us in bed together. Needless to say, we had a tired, grumpy household! With Christine’s thorough instruction and consistent support, my LJ is now taking 3 consistent naps during the day and sleeping 12 hours each night without wakes! He is happier, and so are my husband and me! Christine was there with us every step of the way. LJ figured how to sleep and now loves it, after 4 days.

Christine, I will forever be indebted to you! You helped me to realize I do not have to live my life as a walking zombie just because I’m a mom. Thank you for giving my family a wonderful gift of sleep.

"We Are All Happier And Healthier."
Jeff, dad to 5-month-old Sylvia's, MD

We’ve struggled for years with our son’s poor sleep habits, so when our daughter was born we hoped things would be different and at first they were. She was an incredible sleeper right off the bat, often sleeping 6 to 8 hour stretches at night. Then, at around 3 1/2 months she started waking constantly and rocking/feeding back to sleep wasn’t working. We were exhausted, frustrated and afraid we were in for years of sleepless nights. My wife heard about Bella Luna Sleep Consulting and we decided to reach out to Christine Brown. We met with her via Skype and immediately felt better. She patiently explained how we would teach our daughter to nap in her crib and sleep through the night with only one to two night feedings. Next, we received a detailed sleep plan and two weeks of text/email support. The texting was so helpful because we were able to make real-time adjustments and get comforting words during the times when our daughter was still learning to settle herself. After a few days on Christine’s plan our daughter adjusted to naps in her crib and was/is sleeping from 6 pm - 6 am. She still has two feedings (as she is only 5 months old). We are all happier and healthier. Our daughter actually smiles now when she is placed in her crib to sleep. We can’t stress enough how glad we are that we reached out to Christine and we couldn’t be more excited to highly recommend her to anyone struggling to give their child the invaluable gift of healthy sleep.

"The Whole Family is Now Getting Amazing Sleep!"
Meli, mom to a 5-month-old boy, FL

Working with Christine was one of my best ever parenting decisions! My 5-month-old went from sleeping 2-3 hours at a time and being up for hours at night, with minimal napping...to sleeping 12 hours straight and napping really well during the day. Christine is amazing and was there for support and encouragement throughout the whole process! The whole family is now getting amazing sleep! Thank you, Bella Luna!

"Brianne Was So Patient!"
Madison, mom to a 5-month-old girl, NH

Brianne was so patient throughout the whole process with us. I asked about a million questions and not only did she answer them but she provided a lot of emotional support. Our daughter is now getting better sleep and because of that she is happier, reaching new milestones, and we are able to enjoy and be there without being in that exhausted haze. Thank you, Bella Luna!!

"We Never Could Have Sleep Trained Our Twins Without Her – I Would’ve Caved On Night 1!"
Sarah, mom to 6-month-old twins, WA

Hiring Christine was one of the best decisions I have ever made. We never could have sleep trained our twins without her. I would’ve caved on night 1! The fact that she is a twin mom and understood exactly what I was going through was what really sold me. We went from never being able to put the babies down and all sleeping together at night to the boys sleeping in their own cribs. It’s amazing. I can’t say enough good things!

"Christine Is The Most Supportive Person Ever."
Caroline, mom to 6-month-old Sybil, NH

My husband and I didn’t see the point in our daughter or us being tired anymore so we contacted Bella Luna Sleep Consulting and Christine is amazing! We were nervous to start with, but Christine is the most supportive person ever. Sybil is now sleeping from 6:30 pm - 6:30/7:00 am. She naps for 2 hours in the morning and 2-3 hours in the afternoon. We place her in her crib and say goodnight and she is happy to lie there and fall asleep ALL BY HERSELF! Don’t talk about it anymore, do something about it and CALL CHRISTINE TODAY!!

"We are different people now because of this!"
Salee, mom to 6-month-old triplets, FL

My 6-month-old triplets went from no naps during the day and waking every hour at night, to 3 daytime naps and sleeping 11 solid hours at night! I went into this hopefully but skeptical, after all its 3 babies. In no time Bella Luna proved to me and my family it is possible. We are different people now because of this! Thank you, Bella Luna!!!

"We Are Repeat Customers!"
Stephanie, mom to 6-month-old Kellan, FL

Christine has been a wonderful help to us once again!! We are repeat customers, and she guided us through the steps necessary to get our son on a solid schedule and obtaining restorative sleep! It's amazing how much you forget in a few short years! My 6-month-old is now sleeping through the night almost every night and looks forward to his naps! He wakes up talking to himself happily and all smiles! Our whole family is better rested now and we feel confident that we are giving my son the sleep he needs for healthy growth and development!

"Has Made The BIGGEST Difference In My Life."
Stephanie, mom to 6-month-old twins Joshua & Kayla, MA

My twins were almost 6 months old when I started working with Christine. I was exhausted and feeling like a crazy person. Christine took the time to get to know me & our current sleep habits & schedules before developing a comprehensive plan for us. The plan was laid out so it was easy to follow, and I could easily pass the information along to our nanny so she could reinforce what we were working on. Soon, they were sleeping better and longer at night, and then the daytime naps started coming together, which has made the BIGGEST difference in my life. Their nap times became more predictable, longer, and allowed me to have time to recharge myself and start to feel human again. She was constantly available through text & phone to help with suggestions. My babies are happier, mom is now happier, and I am so thankful for everything Christine did for us!!

"At 6 Months Old I Have A Baby Who Is Sleeping Through The Night In Her Own Room!"
Audrey, mom to 6-month-old Ella, CA

We had such a great experience with Christine and Bella Luna Sleep Consulting! Our 8-month-old was waking multiple times a night and needed to be rocked to sleep. He would not self soothe or go to sleep on his own. Napping was AWFUL. However, after 2 weeks with Christine's guidance and support we have a baby who, though he still may cry a bit with falling asleep, is generally asleep within minutes, wakes happier and if he wakes in the night is able to self soothe! I don't think that we will ever feel well-rested again (ha!) but it is amazing to get 6-7 hours of sleep in a row! Thanks so much, Christine! You gave us the confidence and push we needed to help our baby sleep better!

"My Son Started Sleeping Through The WHOLE Night!"
Jaclyn, mom to 7-month-old Johnny, NE

Christine Brown has given my family the gift of sleep. It is amazing the difference between no sleep, a little sleep and A LOT of sleep. At around 4.5 months, my previously great sleeper caught the horrible RSV bug and unfortunately, we allowed for some bad sleep associations to happen during this time. I knew that it would probably come back to bite me in the butt, but as a full time working momma, I needed whatever sleep he’d give me. By the time, he was 6 months old he began waking up about 3-4 times in the night and honestly not even eating would help. He was super tired…we were ALL exhausted!!! So, I reached out to my friend and asked what she did…and she recommended Christine. I called her the next day! My husband thought we could do the whole sleep training thing on our own, but I just couldn’t read any more books on the subject. I just needed help! So, after calling Christine I knew she was the right person. After a couple of nights of wondering if he’d ever sleep through the night on this plan and a lot of tears on my part, I am happy to say my son started sleeping through the WHOLE night! And when I say all night, I mean 7 pm to 6 am! THE WHOLE NIGHT! Christine is honestly a Godsend and I will recommend her to anyone looking to sleep through the night with their little one. I could call/text/email her throughout the whole 2-week process and ask my questions. It was very helpful to have her discuss why my son did something well today but not the next day. She’s a great teacher and really seemed to care about us! Please if you are not sleeping through the night and you want to, call her!!! I cannot thank her enough for all she did for my family!!!

"I Didn’t Even Think It Was Possible For Such A Big Change To Happen So Quickly, But It Did!"
Besa, mom to 7-month-old Lorik, Washington, DC

I never thought I'd hire a sleep consultant for a 3rd child. I'm supposed to have all of this figured out by now, right?! But for seven months, my little dude never slept more than 45 minutes at a time. Ever. We co-slept so I could nurse him all night long because who wants to walk down the hall 15 times each night?? Christine helped us develop a comprehensive sleep plan that now has him sleeping 12 hours straight in his own crib in his own room. I didn't even think it was possible for such a big change to happen so quickly, but it did! If you want a more well-rested family and a happier baby, hire her. And do it now before word gets out! I'm pretty sure she's on the right track to becoming a sleep consultant to the stars.

"The Whole Process Was So Much Easier Than We Could Have Imagined."
Lisa, mom to 8-month-old girl, NY

Our baby was 8 months and “sleeping” in a co-sleeper beside our bed. She was waking up every few minutes and we were giving her a pacifier or milk. We were not sleeping. We work full time and were zombies at work. Our friends with twins recommended Christine and we signed up immediately. Going through the intake process was illuminating because I got in touch with how scared I was to no longer have her in the bedroom with us and how we hadn’t actually switched strategies since she was a newborn. Our first step was to wean her from night feeding. It took one night. Our second step was to move her into her bedroom and begin the sleep training. It took two nights and she never had to cry consecutively for more than 5 minutes. Turns out that our fears and inexperience were getting in the way of the family getting sleep because our baby was ready. Now after a month of sleep every night and resuming date nights (because she sleeps from 6:30-6:30 straight!) we know it was the best decision. Christine held our hands the whole way and was empathic and encouraging. Naps for our baby were a bit more tricky to figure out and my husband and I would panic text her throughout the day and she would always respond with a solution and a bit of cheerleading. We highly recommend Christine, the whole process was so much easier than we could’ve imagined. Sleep training is one aspect of our parenting that we feel most proud of. Thanks, Christine!

"She Was A Lifesaver For Us!"
Shelby, mom to 8-month-old Griffin, ME

Christine was fantastic to work with and really helped us. Our son was 8 months old and a nightmare in the sleep department. I was exhausted and cranky. We talked and she came up with our sleep plan, and we had him sleeping through the night in 2 days! His naps were very much improved within 2 weeks. He's now 10 months and we're all sleeping through the night and he's happy because he's well-rested during the day too. I would refer Christine to anyone, she was a lifesaver for us!

"You Gave Us The Confidence And Push We Needed To Help Our Baby Sleep Better!"
Shauni, mom to 8-month-old boy, VT

We had such a great experience with Christine and Bella Luna Sleep Consulting! Our 8-month-old was waking multiple times a night and needed to be rocked to sleep. He would not self soothe or go to sleep on his own. Napping was AWFUL.

You gave us the confidence and push we needed to help our baby sleep better!

"Because Of Christine And Her Guidance, We Have A Happy, Well-Rested Home!"
Lorin, mom to 8-month-old Owen, MA

Christine is absolutely AMAZING! She was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. During the home visit, she took the time to get to know us and our son, as well as our living style. After her visit, Christine promptly provided a detailed sleep plan, most of which we had discussed in person so there were no surprises. Christine's support the two weeks after was critical as we, of course, had questions as we began the process. She responded promptly, with the answers as well as the needed encouragement. Prior to Christine's assistance, our son woke up every 2-3 hours at nighttime and had strongly resisted napping in his crib (which we resorted to the car seat or swing to get him to nap). With all of that said, the process was a HUGE success, and our son slept through the night after the second night! AMAZING! We are coming upon a month since Christine's initial visit, and our son is now a sound sleeper at night, as well as his naptimes. And mom and dad are getting a full night's sleep as well. Because of Christine and her guidance, we have a happy, well-rested home!

"She Was Patient And Supportive…"
Erika, mom to 8-month-old Brodie, NY

When I initially reached out to Christine, my son was about 6.5-months-old was still nursing every 2 hours throughout the night and these naps were unreliable in terms of the time of day he’d go down and he usually only stayed asleep for about 20-45 minutes.  I had come across information online regarding the amount of sleep he should be getting for his age and I became worried that he was falling way short! I started to do some research and understand the importance of bedtimes routines, giving him an earlier bedtime and breaking the dependence on nursing to sleep.  However, I had a tremendous fear of using any type of “Cry It Out Method” and made my own attempts to use a Pick Up/Put Down Method. My attempts to remedy the situation just resulted in bedtimes becoming a cry-fest for at least an hour before I gave in and decided to nurse him to sleep anyway. At this point, I was feeling very guilty and confused.

Enter Christine.

Christine was EXTREMELY patient and giving of her time with me!  In the end, I joked with her that I was the “never-ending client”!  Many things came up between the start of our time together and the conclusion of our work including teething, illness, and feeding issues.

I had to work through so many of my own fears, but she was patient and supportive-giving me the time I needed to be ok with the process so that when I went into it, I had the best shot of being consistent with my chosen method.

Throughout the process, she was a cheerleader and a guide.  My son’s situation was a challenging one and he had such a large sleep debt built up, we had to troubleshoot different things along the way.  There’s no way I could’ve gone through this process without guidance and support. We were in touch multiple times a day and I never felt like I was floundering to have to figure out how to interpret the sleep plan on my own.  She went above and beyond to help make sure things were sorted out with my son’s sleep patterns before we ended the training period.

I quickly gained balance back in my life and my son is sleeping sooooo much better! He sleeps through the night and also gets all his naptime needs to be met during the day!  I feel like I definitely did the right thing by him to give him the time and space he needed to learn to self-soothe. I was so afraid to let him cry for any length of time, but on the first night, he was asleep within 30 minutes!

Making the investment in sleep training with Christine was well worth the money and it taught me so much about sleep science.  I fully believe this was the biggest gift I could’ve given him for his happiness and development. My heart goes out to all the babies who are struggling to get their needs met and to the mom’s whose messages I read about their children being poor sleepers.  I’m convinced that self-soothing is a skill babies can learn and any child can make successful improvements to their sleep schedule with the help and guidance of Christine. My son made a complete turnaround and I never would’ve believed things could be as easy as they are now until I experienced it for myself.  Do yourself and your family a favor and contact her to discuss your situation!

"Christine Found Her Calling!"
Hannah, mom to 8-month-old Mary, MA

Christine found her calling! I contacted her when my daughter hit 8 months old and was still waking 1-2 times a night and most of the time needing a bottle to go back to sleep. I contacted Christine in desperation! (I thought I had this down as my first baby slept through at 10 weeks on his own...oh the second time around can be so different!). She responded right away and after our first call, I already felt more at ease. She put together our plan based on our conversation and what our goals were. Once we started, things immediately clicked and Mary started to sleep longer stretches and then eventually through. 🙂 Christine is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough. She is so so passionate about her work and most importantly, helping families. I learned so much from her and am so grateful I spent the time speaking with her. Again, she has found her calling and anyone who decides to utilize her expertise will be so grateful!

"At 8 Months, We Were Out Of Excuses…"
Catherine, mom to 8-month-old Cyrus, MD

Words cannot express how grateful I am for Bella Luna! Our little guy was never a great sleeper. My husband and I kept saying “he’ll sleep when he feels better” and “he’ll sleep once he feels full all night” and so on and so forth, but at 8 months, we were out of excuses. He had grown out of his acid reflux and loved eating solid foods but STILL WOULDN’T SLEEP! When we finally called Christine, he was waking up every 45 minutes to nurse. I was a zombie with a full-time job. Instantly, Christine’s help was critical to us understanding what our baby needed in terms of sleeping and support, and all of us are happier now that we're getting much-needed rest. Our lives changed in a matter of nights. Now I’m just embarrassed it took us so long to call!

"Don’t Wait Any Longer - You Could Be Sleeping!"
Kelley, mom to 9-month-old boy, NH

Contacting Bella Luna Sleep Consulting was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am a first time Mom (my son, Cannon, is 9 months old) and I have been blessed to be able to breastfeed exclusively. As much as I love breastfeeding and the bond we share, I didn’t love breastfeeding every hour on the hour throughout the night. I was sleep deprived and desperate and knew I needed help.

I am happy to say that we have successfully night weaned and my son is SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! Christine not only educated my husband and I but she also provided the support we needed to make this positive yet challenging change in our lives. I will forever be grateful to her and I will use the knowledge I have gained for years to come as I raise my babies.

"We are so appreciative of Renee's expertise!"
Maria, mom to a 9-month-old girl, NC

Renee helped us get our now 9-month-old daughter sleeping all the way through the night and napping well during the day. Amelia had been waking up 1-2 times per night wanting to nurse to get back to sleep, and Renee came up with a nap/sleep schedule that has gotten her sleeping from 6:30 pm until 6 am, resulting in more sleep for her parents! Amelia's nap schedule is now very regular and I can tell she is getting the rest she needs throughout the day. We are so appreciative of Renee's expertise!

"We Now Fondly Call Her The Baby Whisperer!"
Charlotte, mom to 9-month-old Caleb, FL

Christine saved our sanity and sleep - the best money we have ever spent! After 9 long months of our son getting up every 2 to 3 hours at night, we hit a wall. A big fat exhaustion wall. Knowing there had to be a better way for us and him we got recommended to contact Bella Luna sleep consulting from a friend.

Christine worked with us to find a plan that worked with our schedules and our ultimate goals for our family. We were terrified of how hard it was going to be since he got up so much, and we prepared for the first night to be terrible. He got up once. One time...the first night. And it only got better from there.

Turns out, he needed the rest more than we did. It's now been over 2 weeks and everyone is much happier. My husband and I now share the same bed because Caleb loves his crib, bedtime isn't a nightmare or a scream fest, and he hardly gets up in the night. We are so proud of our little snoozer for learning quickly that he needs sleep to grow and develop and owe Christine so much for showing us the way.

We now fondly call her the baby whisperer at home and refer to the sleep packet as the holy grail.

Thank you Christine, for helping us all sleep better.

"Life-Changing!"
Allison, mom to 9-month-old girl, CA

Life-changing! Christine helped my whole family. My daughter is now a happy girl who knows how to sleep! Christine helped navigate us through so many obstacles during our time with her, from multiple sleep crutches to developmental milestones, to teething! She is amazing! With baby #2 on the way, I already know who to call if I need help! This experience seriously changed my daughter’s life, my life, and my marriage. It is so liberating to know your baby can sleep and not spend hours each sleep period trying to get her to sleep. I have “free” time! I’m so happy to know I don’t have to be a “mombie” anymore.

"I Think She May Have Saved My Life."
Danielle, mom to 10-month-old Hank, Washington, DC

I was at the end of my rope when I found Christine. My baby wouldn't go to sleep before 11, and wouldn't sleep unless I was holding him. Honestly, he wanted to me to hold him all of the time. Most of the time He wouldn't let anyone else (including my husband) put me to bed, and then we had to co-sleep. I was losing my mind. My relationship with my toddler was suffering, my relationship with my husband was suffering, my work was suffering, and I felt like I was starting to disappear.

Christine put us on a plan that started working in 3 days. By the end of the first week, I was sleeping 6-8 hours a night in the same bed as my husband. By the middle of the second week, I had the time and energy to go back to the gym. I know have a happy, independent 11-month-old, a better relationship with my husband, and my identity back. I think she may have saved my life.

"We Were Exhausted..."
Emily, mom to 10-month-old Sebastian, NH

Christine at Bella Luna Sleep Consulting saved our sanity and probably our marriage! Our baby, Sebastian, at 9 months was waking up around 8 or 10 pm and then every hour or two until 4 am. We both work full time and we were so exhausted and didn't know what to do. Since this was our second baby and we had no sleep problems with our first, we weren't sure what we were doing wrong. We had talked to our pediatrician team about it several times, but they didn't have any solutions.

Christine identified pretty quickly his main problem of being overtired and gave us some great advice to help him sleep more so he would sleep longer. Some of it was hard to do for us personally with our work schedules, but we followed her advice and the results were fantastic!

We had several false starts: I got the flu, then everyone got the flu. Sebastian started sleeping longer, only getting up 2 or 3 times a night with just a few of her changes. Once we all recovered from the flu, and we finally started the official sleep training, it was amazing: He slept 12 hours straight without a peep on night 3!!! Not every night was like that, but we felt so much better!!! Then Sebastian got an ear infection a week later. Christine was also again very accommodating and was flexible with her support time with us, and helped us manage that obstacle. Even with an ear infection, he only got up once or twice. Now, after our contract with her has been completed, he sleeps through the night, or just wakes up once or a little early in the morning, but if he wakes up early, he just hangs out quietly in his crib until it's time to get up.

Thank you, Christine!

"We Resorted To Co-Sleeping Just To Get Any Sleep…"
Michelle, mom to 11-month-old boy, NH

Christine is not only a sleep consultant but a cheerleader when you need it! She is full of knowledge and full of hope! I was so reluctant to ask for help to help my little man sleep...I thought sleep was just something that happened! But I so needed the help! My little man, Elliott, was severely colic when he was born, hated being put down, could not lay down after he ate due to throwing up and needed to be in my arms ALL the time! We resorted to co-sleeping just to get any sleep, but that ended up causing more problems and more attachment issues. We had to rock Elliott to get him to sleep, and then he would only nap 30 minutes at a time. He would wake anywhere from 2-4 times a night to be fed or rocked or cuddled and he would always end up in bed with us because I was so sleep-deprived. My sister in law recommended Christine and I was worried. Could a woman I don't know really get my little man to sleep on his own? YES, SHE CAN! My little man now sleeps 11-12 hours a night, and takes two, 1-hour naps during the day! I can finally rest when I get the chance between my jobs! He is so much happier when he gets good rest and we now spend more time playing than being fussy! I will recommend Christine to anyone and everyone I know who needs the help! and if you need help with sleep issues, ASK. She is absolutely amazing, and I wish I asked for her help sooner! She was there for us every step of the way! Thank you, Christine! You're simply amazing!

"We Only Wish We Had Found Her Sooner."
Meghan, mom to 11-month-old little girl, NH

We are so glad that we decided to have Christine work with us! We only wish we had found her sooner. She took the time to learn about our family, our child's sleeping environment, our typical schedule/routine, and took all of that into account when determining what sleep training approaches would make sense for our child. She informed us of the various approaches that would be options for us given our situation, providing us with details about how each one would work, how long each one would take and the positives and drawbacks of each one. We were then able to make an informed decision about which approach we would like to use, and from there, Christine developed a sleep plan for our family based on that approach; the plan was individualized for us based on all of the information that we had given her. During the two-week period of time that we worked with her, she was responsive via email and text; she was very quick to respond via text when I had a spur of the moment question about an unexpected situation that occurred, so I was able to put her advice to use right in the moment, which was wonderful. We saw progress quickly. Our child now consistently sleeps through the night, has better napping habits, is far better rested, and as a result, is definitely much happier during waking hours as well. We truly could not be more pleased with the outcome of working with Christine. We would recommend her without hesitation to any family looking to improve their child's sleeping habits.

Toddlers & Big Kids Sleep Consulting

"I Now Feel I Have the Tools and Knowledge"
Megan, mom to a 12-month-old boy, NH

I recently worked with Renee because my 12-month-old son was not sleeping well. We had to hold him to sleep for naps and he was still waking up to nurse early in the morning. After talking with Renee and working with the schedule and techniques she provided us, our son now sleeps through the night and can fall asleep on his own for naps! I now feel I have the tools and knowledge to handle any setbacks in the future, too. Thank you, Renee!

"Great Progress with Our Twins!"
Renee, mom to 12-month-old Aubrey & Caroline, NH

I cannot say enough about Christine and how she helped our family. We had recently been through some major life changes, including a big move and our one daughter stopped sleeping through the night. The only way she'd fall asleep is if my husband or I held her and stayed with her the entire night. We reached out to Christine, who provided an amazingly detailed plan for helping our little one transition back to the good sleeper she once was. She helped us build a routine that not only helped our one daughter, but wound up being a huge benefit to her twin sister as well. Within a week, I had 2 13 months olds on a regular routine, sleeping consistently 11-12 hours a night. Our family is happier and more well-rested because of it.

"Sleeping Through The Night In Her Crib Since Day 1 Of Sleep Training"
Audra, mom to 12-month-old Anya, NH

After almost a year of co-sleeping with my daughter, her refusing to sleep in her crib, and none of us getting good sleep, it was time to work on our sleep issues. I had no idea where to start or what to do and was so afraid to let her cry. Then we met Christine! Because of her guidance and support, our daughter has been sleeping through the night in her crib since day 1 of sleep training! And with minimal tears! I wouldn't have gotten through this without Christine!!! Because of her, I am confident that we can help our daughter continue with good sleeping habits and get the rest she needs. Thank you SO much, Christine!!!

"Christine At Bella Luna Sleep Consulting Saved Our Sleep Sanity!"
Vicki, mom to 13-month-old Judah, Washington, DC

Our son, Judah, was not born the world's best sleeper. With working full time and breastfeeding, we opted to bed share and maximize sleep for everyone. We did this for 13mo and it worked really well for us until it didn't.

As a parent who prefers many Attachment Parenting approaches, "Cry it Out" was not something we felt comfortable doing. Christine at Bella Luna Sleep Consulting saved our sleep sanity!!! Her knowledge of infant development, sleep patterns and norms, respect for our parenting style and desire to continue breastfeeding past one year, made Judah's sleep adjustment successful. Christine was available to check in as we made our changes and cheered us on the entire way. She reached out and touched base, asked questions without being invasive, and gave great advice along with a comprehensive step-by-step sleep plan. Christine quickly became a trusted friend who shared an important experience with us. We are so thankful for her guidance, continued support, and ability to help turn our non-sleeper to a champion sleeper who began sleeping through the night, on his own, in his own crib (at 13mo) immediately!

"Highly Recommend!"
Courtney, mom to 16-month-old boy, MA

Highly recommend! Renee was very helpful, informative, easy to talk to and responsive! She answered all our questions and gave us the reassurance we needed to help our 16-month-old get the sleep he needed!

"Each Day was Drastically Better."
Erika, mom to 18-month-old boy

Christine saved my life!  My 18-month-old was sleeping in my bed, waking up to nurse every two hours and would only nurse to sleep.  Christine changed this in 1 day!  Our consultation was great and my son almost slept through the night on the first night.  Each day got drastically better and since then he has slept through the night and falls asleep on his own.  I say good night, shut the door and he falls asleep on his own.  If any issues popped up after the process Christine was there to help and solve every issue I had.  She had the best advice for each issue.  I can't thank Christine enough!!  She taught my son positive habits that he still uses now at age 3.  Recently I had a meeting with Christine to talk about my children's behavior and again she helped me out huge to work on positive parenting strategies.  I would HIGHLY recommend Christine.  It is the BEST money I have ever spent!!

THANK YOU!!!

"I Never, Ever Imagined It Could Work Like This For My Son."
Alice, mom to 18-month-old Henry, GA

Christine and Bella Luna Sleep Consulting changed our lives forever. My 18-month-old son was an extremely heavy nurser from birth and we coslept to survive from 1 month on. As a result, he could only fall asleep nursing or occasionally in the car. I read several books and what seemed like every website, blog, and message board on the web about sleep training, and I was convinced we wouldn't be able to get him to sleep solo without major trauma for both of us. We heard about Christine just in time! She was professional, yet personable, and was supportive and understanding of all the parenting choices we had made. We chose a method together and she created an AMAZING document to guide us in preparing for and beginning sleep training. The big night arrived, and it was so much easier than I could have ever imagined. We had almost no tears, and by night three, he was sleeping 12 hours at night and 2.5 hours at naptime. I've heard of it happening like this for other kids, but I never, ever imagined it could work like this for my son. Christine checked in with us regularly and sent reminders, tips, and encouragement throughout the first week. My husband and I are so grateful for what Bella Luna Sleep Consulting has done for us. I consider Christine our fairy godmother. Now I just need to relearn how to sleep without my little one next to me!

"My Newborn Slept Better Than My 2 Year Old…"
Leanne, mom to 2-year-old Caroline, MA

I was referred to Christine from Bella Luna from a Mom at a play place. I had made a comment that my newborn slept better than my two-year-old and she couldn’t wait to share what Christine had done for her. I was a bit hesitant as I had tried “everything” over the course of 2 years and my 25-month-old was still up 2-4 times a night. Christine gave us a few ideas and worked with us until we found something that worked for our daughter. She didn’t give up on us or her and was always there to encourage me when I was feeling hopeless. I couldn’t rave about her more!

"Our 2 Year Old Is A Great Independent Sleeper Now!"
Priya, mom to 2.5-year-old Jaana, NH

We worked with Christine for sleep training our 2.5 yr old daughter. This was a big change for all of us, especially our daughter. She has been co-sleeping with us and nursed to sleep till 18 months. Also by room sharing with an infant brother she was not getting enough sleep and it was harder for us to give her the support she needed every time she woke up. We believe in no cry method and Christine helped us work out a plan that exactly worked for our family, our parenting style and most important a method that suits our daughter's personality. It has been a great transformation that we couldn't believe it ourselves. At the end of 2 weeks, she is going to bed on her own and has turned out to be a great independent sleeper. It was the most gentle and personalized training that we needed. We wish you success, Christine, in your work to bring much-needed rest and peace to many, many more families!

"She's a Great Coach!"
Mal, mom to 2.5-years-old Rion, TX

Before I contacted Bella Luna, I was spending 2 hours every night lying down with my son (2.5 years old), until he fell asleep.   After I consulted with Christine we started the sleeping guide and Rion started to go to sleep by himself within 3 days without shedding a single tear.  Christine was there to guide us every time we needed her on daily basis with texts and emails helping us every step of the way. I would recommend Christine to every parent who needs guidance on helping their children go to sleep better; she is a great coach and makes it easy to follow her advice.

"I Only Wish We Had Started Sooner!"
Katie, mom to 3-year-old Charlie, NH

I am so grateful to Christine for getting the entire family on the same page when it comes to sleep! My husband and I struggled to get our now three-year-old to sleep in his own bed through the night. I was exhausted and tired of sharing limited sleep space! The plan Christine put together was easy to follow, and the kids really welcomed the new routine. While the sleep plan was for my younger son, my older son is also benefiting from the firmer routine. We knew we needed to do something, it was just hard to figure out what that something should be. Having a plan and someone on the other end to offer support and troubleshoot problems was invaluable. I only wish we had started sooner!

"I Was a Complete Zombie Mom!"
Jen, mom to 3-year-old and 9-month-old-boys, Canada

We love Christine and Bella Luna Sleep Consulting and would recommend her to anyone whose family is struggling with sleep.

A bit about our experience:

When I reached out to Bella Luna Sleep Consulting via their website, I was a complete zombie mom. We have an almost 3-year-old and a 9-month-old baby, both of whom needed help with sleep. It had been 6 months since we'd moved our toddler to a big boy bed (too soon as it turns out - big whoops) and the sleep situation had devolved into a complete nightmare: 2 hours tough, grinding bedtime routine, regularly sleeping on the floor in my son's room, in the tiny toddler bed or with him in our bed, multiple-night wakings and one perma-cranky little guy.

We were white-knuckling it and just hoping things would get better when the very predictable 8-month sleep regression happened with our baby. He started waking up 2-3 times at night too. Everyone was miserable and I felt like I couldn't cope.

I found Christine online and she was wonderful to work with from the get-go. She was so confident that we could fix our sleep situation that it gave us hope. She collected lots of information about the kids, met with us to go over the process in detail and then delivered two separate plans, tailored to each child's needs. The plans were detailed, well-organized and full of great information that we still turn to when we need a little refresher.

Then we implemented the plans with Christine's support and even though we were quite nervous about trying to make some pretty big changes, Christine made it easy. Quick to respond to our texts with a technical course-correction, bit of encouragement or joke, Christine was with us every step of the way.

Our kids took to the new sleep regime almost immediately. It's been just over a month since I sent that initial inquiry e-mail to Bella Luna and our new normal is happy, relaxing 30 minutes (max) bedtime routine, age-appropriate bedtime that means that my husband and I actually get to hang out again and uninterrupted sleep all night long for the whole family.

Working with Christine was totally worth the investment, to say the least, and we are so grateful to her for helping us get back to a happy, well-rested life. Thank you!

"It Can Change Quickly and Turn Your Life Around"
Lauren, mom to a 3-year-old boy, FL

Working with Brianne was not only incredibly helpful but incredibly informative! She coached us with easy to implement steps and provided so much information as to why sleep is so important for development. It is so vital that parents understand how closely related these 2 things are.

My husband and I committed to working together because going through the day completely exhausted was hurting us in so many ways. We were open and honest about what bedtime looked like, and without any judgment, Bri was able to help us tweak our routine and we had a sleeper within a few nights!!

This experience not only helped our 3 years old get a better quality of sleep it gave us the tools to make better sleep decisions for ourselves too. Sleep deprivation is not something people should get used to! It can change quickly and turn your life around. Thanks, Bri!

"Life-Changing"
Brittany, mom to a 3-year-old boy, FL

From our first meeting, I was blown away by Brianne's professionalism, compassion, and knowledge of sleep training and sleep-related information. Every step of the way we felt supported, encouraged and understood. While we hoped for the best, our expectations for the end result of the training were relatively low considering the place that we were coming from. When we started, we had a three-year-old who was sleeping in our bed, waking up multiple times per night, who was overly tired during the day, rebellious, emotional and who needed me next to him in order to nap past 30 minutes and to fall asleep at night.

In just the span of two weeks (and the results really started after just a few days!) I could not be happier to report that with Brianne's plan and steadfast guidance, we as a family are getting the best and healthiest sleep we've had since before our son was born. It is literally like living with a different child. We went from thinking that "this is just how life is" to take back control of our life. Not only is our little one getting the sleep he so desperately needed, he now has the structure and routine that we didn't even know that he was craving and he is T-H-R-I-V-I-N-G!

Since incorporating Brianne's sleep plan, we have noticed a HUGE difference in our son's attitude, focus and overall well-being. Mornings are no longer a struggle for us. Naps are a WELCOMED event for him (say what?!). The best part and the thing that we never thought we would be able to have is being able to read him a book, kiss him goodnight, shut the door and walk away to have him put himself to sleep. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm happy to say that after two weeks, THIS is our new normal.

I now have more time to get the things done that I need to get done and my husband and I have time to ourselves once again, something that we haven't had in over three years. On top of all of this, we are welcoming our second little one to the family in just a little over a month. We were honestly TERRIFIED for what this would look like with our previous situation. I have cried so many happy tears knowing that that weight is now lifted from my shoulders. If you are in any sort of similar situation, do not think twice about hiring Brianne. Hands down, this is the best decision that we have made for our family to date. I would do it a million times over and will tell everyone about the amazing experience and results that we've had. This has truly been a life-changing experience. Thank you, Brianne!

"Affordable, Wonderful Support!"
Maegan, mom to 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old twins

“Knowing doesn’t equal doing”… I knew yelling at my children didn’t get me anywhere, I knew I had to lead by example to get the behavior I wanted, I knew that when I was calm so were they, I know that I want the very best for my children and I was stuck! The books I read, literally praying before bed for patience to be the best mom to my kids wasn’t enough. I knew I needed a new set of tools to succeed. I thrive off of learning and a structured plan. Since I knew Christine saved my life when I was severely sleep-deprived with my twins, I knew she could help me in finding a solution to tackle my children’s ever-changing behaviors! I have 3 children, 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old boy/girl twins which whom I stay home full time. Raising great kids is my biggest goal and giving them skills to deal with their enormous feelings was my next job to tackle, this also meant checking with my own feelings! Christine provided me great feedback and material to lean on as I navigated the course. We were able to work through real-life solutions I was struggling with daily; walking safely in the parking lot, keeping our hands to ourselves, and the dreaded mealtime!  She also checked in and made me feel less alone while she shared her own stories with her boys. I left the call so ready to wake up to my children with a new outlook, ways to be calm myself, praise my children for all the good instead of the bad and things have truly changed.  I’m still a work in progress and so are they, but I feel better armed to tackle my day, be a role model and keep them safe. You don’t have to continue your struggles alone or settle for complete chaos, because there is affordable, wonderful support just waiting for you at Bella Luna! Christine will always be part of my family and a big reason why I’m a happier and healthier mom. Thank you!

"Christine First Helped My 2-Year-Old Sleep and Now Me! "
Dennis, age 37, MA

I've had a lifelong challenge with sleep and I was scared that I had passed my challenges on to my daughter.  This is when we reached out to Christine for help.  After a two week package, my daughter was sleeping through the night and taking amazing naps.

Then I asked Christine if she could help me and she said "YES!"  We worked together for 4 weeks and by the end of our time together my sleep has dramatically improved.  It is amazing how small tweaks can make a world of difference.  Thanks, Christine!
