When I was pregnant I took notes while reading a sleep training book. How hard could this be, I thought. Well, once baby came I was so sleep deprived that I couldn’t even think straight, let alone start sleep training a screaming baby who could never be put down. I tried going back to my notes and was so flustered. That’s when I started working with Riki. Riki’s patience, knowledge and understanding truly made this process smooth and manageable. Riki got me my life back and made me that confident person again who can take on any challenge. Highly recommend!
With a little toddler and a 3-month-old baby, my life was non-stop. Besides for my job and running after my toddler, the rest of my day was spent trying to settle my baby. Her naps were so short that by the time she finally fell asleep, she was already waking up. Riki came along and literally changed my life! After just a few days, my baby was putting herself to sleep and taking much longer naps. She began doing very long stretches at night and she became so much calmer and happier!
I finally have time for my toddler, my housework-as well as for myself! I highly recommend Riki!
My 18-month-old has severe asthma and has always been a terrible sleeper. At 8 months, we finally turned to a professional sleep coach. We saw some improvement, but because of our son’s medical condition, the original coaching didn’t amount to anything and we were not able to achieve the results we so badly needed.
Our son was constantly on medication, inhalers and a nebulizer which had a side effect of insomnia and required that we wake him up every 4 hours. Because of this, the coach we worked with didn’t think there was anything else we could do to improve the situation.
This made sleep training close to impossible –until we got in touch with Riki. She spent the time to really understand our son’s condition and temperament so that she would able to create the best sleep plan for him. She gave us options and guidance when choosing a sleep plan and was constantly there to help. After starting Riki’s sleep plan, we saw major improvement by the next night!
After months of dysfunctional sleep and constant frustration, our son finally sleeps in his crib the whole night and falls asleep without assistance. He has even kept his sleep schedule while on his medication (a mini-miracle)!
I would highly recommend Riki to anyone who is having a hard time with getting their child to go to sleep, stay in bed or sleep through the night. I feel better as a mother knowing that with Riki’s help I gave my child the ability to sleep- something he was lacking for a long time.
At 6 months old my baby was waking up many times each night and I would have to nurse her back to sleep. I knew I wanted to sleep train my baby but I needed help. Riki gave me tips and techniques to help me teach my baby to fall back asleep on her own. She now falls asleep on her own and sleeps much better at night. Riki was so helpful and a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her!
I knew I wanted to sleep train my baby but needed guidance. Riki was amazing. She was helpful, understanding and supportive. She gave me the encouragement I needed to help me through the hard times and was there to cheer me on as my baby adjusted to a healthy schedule. I couldn’t have done it without her!
At four weeks old, my baby was up every hour at night and would only settle back to sleep after I nursed or rocked her for an hour! Riki taught me techniques to help my baby fall back asleep on her own and how to limit her day time sleep so she would sleep better at night. Within just two weeks of working with Riki, my baby was taking longer stretches at night and was able to fall back asleep without my assistance. Riki’s gentle and easy-to-follow approach made the sleep training process so smooth. Additionally, Riki’s constant reassurance and patience made it so enjoyable to work with her!
Riki helped me narrow down the best option to sleep train my baby. Within 2 nights of speaking to Riki, my daughter has been sleeping through the night every night, between 10-12 hours straight!

Riki was extremely sweet and patient and was a total pleasure to work with! The personalized sleep training plan that she wrote for me was formatted to suit my busy schedule. Riki held my hand throughout the process and gave me a cry-free method of sleep training my baby. Her guidance really took the stress out of parenting my newborn and yielded great results! I am really grateful and recommend her to all!
