Pediatrician Harvey Karp presents simple and effective steps for calming a crying baby, revealing the amazing secret used for centuries by the world's top parents ... the calming reflex. He demonstrates what he calls the five S's - techniques used independently or together to help simulate the conditions in the womb. They are swaddling, side or stomach position, shushing, swinging or jiggling, and sucking.

Re-reading for baby#2 prep since we found it so helpful with our first daughter 3 years ago. Lots of filler to skim through, but worth the read! Read full review
