Review: The Happiest Baby on the Block: The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer

User Review  - Crystal Riley - Goodreads

User Review  - Adrienne - Goodreads

This book tells you how to swaddle a baby and why it is helpful to do so. This is useful information if you have a newborn, but watch the DVD and save yourself some time. Read full review

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

I think learning about the 5 S's was the only thing I took away from this book. The author added too much fluff, testimonials, and speculations which clouded the actual information in the book. Read full review
