I liked this book, although I found the author arrogant. Okay, I usually find authors of self-help books arrogant and/or biased. :) That's why it got three stars, like almost every other pregnancy or parenthood book. What I did like about this book was the idea that babies like to be close to us. Karp includes personal success stories (cocky?) and cultural stories (I really liked these!) to provide evidence that swaddling and cuddling and bouncing babies are effective soothing tools. This appeals to my sense of parenting, so I liked it.
