Save time- watch movie!!

Posted

Pros: more in depth

Cons: see below!

I love the movie version of this book- you actually get to see the techniques. Frankly, Harvey Karp writes about techniques that mamas have always used. The book is good, the techniques are solid, but they are really obvious. You don't need to read the whole book to the get the 6 S's. Practicing swaddling is easier while watching the movie than reading the book, and the shushing, etc. are also easier to see than read about!

Fantastic book for soothing babies

Pros: Techniques for soothing baby

Cons: None

My husband got me this book for Christmas and I was overjoyed. We had watched the dvd, but I wanted to study it more. The techniques that Dr. Karp talk about in this book really do help most all babies to calm down and be soothed. His main focusing is on combining a lot of popular baby calming methods and doing them all at once (such as swaddling, shushing, and swinging). This really made a difference in our sanity and ability to calm our baby when he was a newborn up until he was about 6 or 7 months. This is a great resource for new parents. I recommend it to all of my friends with babies.
