You’ve got to take a deep breath before you read the title of The Happiest Baby on the Block; Fully Revised and Updated Second Edition: The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer on Amazon.
Dr Harvey Karp is one of the best-qualified people to write a baby book. He’s an Assistant Professor at the USC School Of Medicine. There are over 15,000 positive reviews of his work on Goodreads and I’d be happy to bet that means he knows his stuff.
You see a baby that cries is a baby that causes stress at home, so understanding how to make baby happy can be a big win not just for baby but the whole family.
As one Amazon customer says, “Amazing, magic, baby voodoo. This is NOT just rocking the baby. This is a completely different technique that grandma has never seen. 90% of the time this calmed our baby in under a minute and had him asleep in five. The other 10% he needed something- more nursing, a diaper change, he needed to poo, something.
Seriously, watch this now. We watched it when our baby was three weeks old and we were kicking ourselves for waiting so long! Three weeks of crying could never be undone!
Stopped working around 4-5 months old. As Dr. Karp says, this is really for the first three months or so.”
I liked the book, but I think there’s a better way to approach this work… the DVD! You can get the DVD of the Happiest Baby on the Block on Amazon too.
