This is a good CD to use in conjunction with the book. I had trouble getting the 'white noise' on my local radio frequency and this CD helped a lot. My son even used it after he had outgrown some of the other techniques. It works best for younger babies though. If you want to use it, I would start it pretty soon after you get home from the hospital. If it is not part of their bedtime routine by 3 months, it won't work.

This cd has saved my voice from shusshing and the vacuum from excessive wear. It works better than any other sounds- but only if used with a number of the other 5 S's mentioned in Dr Karp's video/book. The first track (of three) sounds a bit like it is out of a horror movie- I expect passers-by to look in my living room window and see Jason or Chuckie! The other two tracks are a bit more mellow, and my husband is even calmed by the third track!

Our first daughter was colicky so we tried to be prepared for the second. Although our second daughter was not colicky we used the CD anyway. When she was about 3 months old we quit using it but over a month later our babysitter couldn't get her to stop crying when she put her to bed so she put the CD on. She was quiet immedietly, apparently she still remembered the sound! She's now a year old and when we turn the CD on she knows it's time to sleep, she calms down as soon as she hears it. We primarily used track 3 and that is all we use now. We keep it on all night and at nap times, it blocks out the other noises in the house and our 3 year old. When anyone hears the sound over our monitor they joke that it sounds like an alien space movie or something, it's not white noise, more of a womb/heartbeat sound.

First, let me say that I LOVE the Happiest Baby methods. They worked like an absolute dream with our baby, who is a great sleeper to this day (3 years later!).

However, I HIGHLY recommend a different CD - For Crying Out Loud! is simply tracks of different types of 'household' white-noise. The washing machine, rain and windshield wipers, maternal heartbeat, and our fave: the vacuum cleaner!

I discovered it after a desperate search for fear of burning out the motor on our vacuum cleaner (which worked like an off-switch for my baby!). We simply played it on repeat in the nursery whenever she slept.

Worked much better for us. The different tracks allow for different preferences in pitch and speed of the white-noise.

The DVD gives you a sample but having the CD is the way to go. This allows you to take the sounds that WILL put the baby to sleep with you in the car, to the inlaws, to the babysitter--you name it. We grab it for the baby bag as we would the diapers and wipes! It will help you get and keep sitters because the baby will sleep thanks to these sounds for whoever is watching him.

This CD didn't just help my baby, but helped me sleep better. I can't remember the last time I slept so hard. The baby likes it and falls asleep much faster with it, and I find that I sleep much more soundly when it's on. If I get up in the middle of the night, I make sure to put the sounds back on so I drop off quicker. Love this!

This CD is a must have for any new or experienced mother. I have a 5-week old baby girl that has a tough time falling asleep soundly, she'll wake up after 10-15 minutes every time! I always have to get her to sleep in my arms, and then pat her for a while after I put her down because she gets fussy again. Now, I can put her down all fussy (making sure that she is fed and has a clean diaper on) and she goes to sleep by herself instantly!!!! I believe I have been saved from loosing my mind thanks to this CD!

This thing really worked for our super colicky newborn.

We found that most white noise machines didn't really do their job when baby was screaming. At those times, as Dr. Karp teaches in his life-saving book "The Happiest Baby on the Block", you need a loud sound, so the baby can hear it over his own screams. With this CD you can adjust the volume accordingly.

The CD has 6 tracks for different situations (extreme fussiness/crying, calming to sleep, staying asleep, etc)

We found track 2 especially helpful for stopping extreme inconsolable crying/screaming. It worked when nothing else (not even the vacuum cleaner) did. The problem with track 2, however, is that it can give you a headache. But I preferred a headache over baby screaming. When I couldn't stand track 2, we used track 6 (rain), which worked great to keep him asleep during naps.

Also, the tracks fade in and out, so they don't startle you or the baby that much.

We purchased a second CD for the car.

If you are reading reviews for this product, you must be a suffering parent of a colicky baby. I hate unsolicited advice myself, but I will still share the following bit of parenting experience:

Once your extremely fussy baby outgrows the first terrible 6 weeks, I recommend working on getting him to sleep during the day more. It did wonders for us, turning the ultimate fussy baby into a sweet angel. When I first heard that advice, I said "yeah, right! I know how to wake a baby, but there's no way I can put him to sleep when he doesn't want to". But we tried. And it changed our lives like we never expected.

My recommendation for working on baby sleep habits: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Weissbluth.
