The Happiest Baby Review and Giveaway Ends May 31, 2010

The Happiest Baby
What parent doesn’t need a little extra snooze time? 
Studies have shown that sound of a baby crying raises the heart rate of any adult in earshot, whether they’re the baby’s parents or not. For parents, the stress caused by their baby’s cries may be compounded by a sense of responsibility to calm the baby down, guilt and frustration when soothing attempts don’t work, and sleepless nights filled with said baby’s screams.
So what can a new parent do?
Well, some new parents may have the luxury of a proud new grandparent to turn to with a look of desperation as they hand the baby over and pitifully plea “Just make it stop!” Many new parents are on their own. Or at least that’s what it feels like as they pace the floor in the middle of the night wondering if this red-faced noise machine is the same little angel they held in the hospital or if the nurse made a switch somewhere between the hospital elevator and their car.
Happiest Baby on the Block is a program developed by Dr. Harvey Karp, assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine, who has taught the Happiest Baby principles on TV, in celebrities’ homes and at
seminars nationwide.
 Dr. Harvey Karp is a nationally renowned pediatrician, child development specialist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the UCLA School of Medicine.
He completed medical school training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC, pediatric residency at Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles and fellowships in ambulatory pediatrics and child development at UCLA. In pediatric practice, for almost 30 years, Dr. Karp has taught thousands of parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna, Michelle Pfeiffer and Pierce Brosnan his secrets for soothing colic, boosting infant sleep, reducing tantrums, promoting patience and …making parents and children happy. Their special “soothing sounds” played all night will instantly add 1-3 hours to your baby’s sleep. And, using it every night for months will make it easy to wean the swaddling and prevent the common sleep problems (from teething, colds etc.) that can suddenly start at 4-12 months and ruin your baby’s slumber …and yours!
Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not really ready for the world when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding babies…improving their sleep…and, soothing their senses:
  • The Missing 4th Trimester: As odd as it may sound, one of the main reasons babies cry is because they are born three months too soon.
  • The Calming Reflex: The automatic reset switch that can stop a baby’s crying…and boost a baby’s sleep…during the first months of life.
  • The 5 S’s: Five simple steps that trigger the calming reflex (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking). For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when it is triggered in exactly the right way.
  • The Cuddle Cure: The perfect mix the 5 S’s that can soothe even most colicky infants and add hours to their sleep.
    “With Happiest Baby, there are five S’s that you do: swaddle, shift them on their side or stomach (while baby is awake), shoosh or provide white noise, sway and get them moving, and let them suck (on a pacifier)“You can do all five or a combo – depending on what that particular baby needs – and it turns off the crying.”
 Never again will you have to stand by helplessly while your little baby cries and cries! After you master the lessons of The Happiest Baby DVD you can learn lots more about keeping your baby happy and boosting sleep in Dr. Karp's best selling book. No wonder millions of parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna, have turned to Dr. Karp to learn his secrets.
Dr. Harvey Karp, America’s most read pediatrician, can teach any parent how to transform even the fussiest infant into the happiest baby on the block! With his sensible advice, parents and grandparents, nurses and nannies will be able to soothe their babies’ crying and boost their sleep 1-3 hours!
In his award-winning DVD and book, Dr. Karp also explains::
  • What is colic?
  • Why is infant crying more common in the evening?
  • How can a parent calm a fussy baby – in mere minutes?
  • Can babies be spoiled?
  • When should a parent of a fussy baby call the doctor?
  • What can a parent do to instantly boost their baby’s sleep?
Magic, miracle, no it’s a reflex. Dr. Karp’s discoveries about babies means most parents can soothe even colicky babies in minutes…or less…AND boost sleep 1-3 hours/night.
Most parents (especially dads) say it's easier to learn this amazing approach by watching than by reading. The Happiest Baby DVD is the most watched parenting video in history!

 I was really excited about receiving The Happiest Baby on the Block Book and DVD. 
I really enjoy reading and this book is definate must have for any parent. This book is full of extremly helpful information and is a nice easy book to read. With so many helpful tips, It is amazing that even after 4 children you still find things you did not know.  I know I have danced , swaddled, and swayed my kids at some point. To this day,  if Emma is fussy before bed she still loves to be swaddled with her "blankie".  It gives her security and it really helps her fall asleep. It's really amazing how babies are routine addicts, well at least my children roll better with routine.  I had to laugh and chuckle and really  agree with the Fourth "S" of Swinging as this is a move I have done with all Four of my kiddos. {pg 161}  I remember doing this with my oldest when she just would not settle. "I would always lay my oldest on my lap and hold her head with my hands and rock my knees back and forth, swaying back and forth. She loved it. I was a young mom so I was desparate to do anything that would help. 
Dr. Karp has amazing tips and its such a great read , you will be amazed how fast you can read this whole book. It is a keepsake and makes for a great Gift!

Dr. Karp’s work is translated into over 20 languages and is taught by thousands of specially trained educators in Happiest Baby classes. These popular classes are available in hospitals, clinics, teen parent programs, postpartum depression clinics, father support groups, military bases and child abuse prevention programs in hundreds of communities across North America…and around the world.
No wonder the New York Times praised his work by proclaiming, “Roll over Dr. Spock!”
Dr. Karp serves on the advisory boards of Parents, Ser Padres and American Baby magazines; is a parenting life coach for AOL and the pediatric consultant to DestinationMaternity.com.
He has appeared numerous times on Good Morning America, The View, Larry King Live, Dr. Phil, The Early Show, ABC World News Tonight, and his work has been featured by the Associated Press, New York Times, Time, Newsweek, People Magazine, etc.
Learn why millions of parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna, have turned to Dr. Karp!
