User Review  - Tiffanie - Goodreads

This book gives great advice that makes sense and seems easy to follow (though it remains to be tested). There are two reasons I give this book two stars: 1. The book is extremely repetitive. And I ... Read full review

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

User Review  - JD Wallace - Goodreads

It had a few tips... that could have been easily summed up in a short magazine article. Tons of filler, just a little actual content. Let me save you some time... Swaddle, Shush, Side, Swing, Suck. Read full review

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

User Review  - Diana - Goodreads

This book has an overt amount of filler. If you want to understand the 5 S's, and how they will calm your baby down...watch Harvey Karp's youtube videos. Read full review

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

User Review  - Dana Gibson - Goodreads

The calming techniques are definitely useful, but none of them are new ideas unique to this book. Like many baby books, the entire book could have been summed up in five bullet points. Read full review

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

So the techniques in this book sound useful...but they could have been explained in a pamphlet, not a book. And this guy writes like he's trying to sell you a vacuum cleaner. Also, despite the fact ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Brianne Moore - Goodreads

This book is an example of someone who seriously needed to be reined in. For the most part, I found it incredibly repetitive, and the first half was largely unhelpful (stop telling me what colic isn't ... Read full review
