Never again will you have to stand by helplessly while your little baby cries and cries. There is a way to calm most crying babies...usually in minutes!

Thousands of parents, from regular moms and dads to Hollywood superstars, have come to baby expert Dr. Harvey Karp to learn his remarkable techniques for soothing babies and increasing sleep. Now his landmark book - fully revised and updated with the latest insights into infant sleep, bedsharing, breastfeeding, swaddling, and SIDS risk - can teach you too!

Dr. Karp’s highly successful method is based on four revolutionary concepts:

  1. The Fourth Trimester: Why babies still yearn for a womblike atmosphere...even after birth
  2. The Calming Reflex: An “off switch” all babies are born with
  3. The 5 S’s: Five easy steps to turn on your baby’s amazing calming reflex
  4. The Cuddle Cure: How to combine the 5 S’s to calm even colicky babies

With Dr. Karp’s sensible advice, parents and grandparents, nurses and nannies, will be able to transform even the fussiest infant into the happiest baby on the block!
