Pros: Techniques for soothing baby
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.
