This title is among the first three installments of a new series that will surely become a favorite with both new and experienced parents, come in a handy five-by-seven-inch size, perfect to keep on hand in the nursery or in a nightstand. Brazelton is our modern-day Dr. Spock, and his tips for helping parents deal with everyday concerns and special circumstances have become mainstream in current parenting methodology. In tackling fussy babies, Brazelton delivers his tried-and-true techniques in a unique but understandable way, making this easy-to-read series one of the more approachable, if slightly oversimplified, ones published today.

I really like Dr. Brazelton's approach -- warm and loving but firm and respectful of sleep-deprived parents (thank you!) However, he makes it seem too easy, like "follow steps 1-4 and your baby will be calm." If only it were that simple. I wish he had taken things one step further, i.e., what to do when all his suggestions fail and the baby is still crying. I think in his effort to make this book short and practical, he overlooked how complex this process can be for parents with more difficult babies and/or whose confidence withers with baby's every crying jag.

As a parent of a colicy/active baby, I've went through several different books, looking for help. This book was not helpful. It was basically nothing more than you'd find in a magazine article. It doesn't have any real solutions. Instead I'd HIGHLY recommend "the Happiest Baby on the block" especially the DVD version. This was unbelievably helpful to me and I just wish I had found it sooner.

Calming Your fussy Baby the Brazelton Way has been the most important book I've read as a parent. Every time my baby cried I felt as if I failed, as if I let her down, hopeless. I felt like crying myself. This book helped me to understand these feelings in myself, to get past them so that I could understand my baby's cries, and figure out what she was trying to tell me. There is lots of information in here about what a baby's cries mean, how to tell, and what to do. But without telling me what to do and making me feel even more like a failure it helped me take a look at myself - I had to face the fact that I was suffering from post partum depression: no one else had noticed. There is something so soothing and calming about the way this book is written that it gave me the courage to face myself, and helped me to get help and get ready to calm my fussy baby.

Once again, T. Berry Brazelton hits a home run. Calming Your Fussy Baby outlines the steps every parent should take to determine the source of a baby's fussing and soothe the fuss away. Advice is laid out by age so that parents can go directly to the portion of the book applicable to their baby and specific information is presented for various types of crying and how to identify what kind of cry one is hearing. The advice is to the point and clear and is written in such a way as to assure parents that they are doing just fine.
One of Brazelton's charms is that he echoes Dr. Spock's famous statement "You know more than you think you do" for a new generation. Dr. Brazelton firmly believes that every parent can be a good parent and that the roots of good parenting are within everyone who wishes to tap them. This book, part of the Brazelton Way series, is a good one to have on hand for the inevitable day when a baby just won't be calmed. With this ammunition, any parent should consider him- or herself well armed against the fussies.
