After 5 straight weeks of sleepless nights, my husband and I were walking zombies. Our infant would wake every hour to 2 hours throughout the night and just scream. During the day she would also scream uncontrollably - even though the doctor found nothing wrong with her physically. I had convinced myself that she just wasn't a happy baby like our 6 year old was and life with Isabel would be tough!
Then I searched Amazon one night under "Colic" and found this book and video. Even though we have absolutely no time to read, we did watch the video (while she wailed). My husband tried the swaddling and shhing techniques that night and she quieted down after about 10 minutes. Now 1 week later she calms after 5 min or so AND she is sleeping 4 hours at a time. We feel great and she finally looks peaceful - and not agitated.
Both the book and video are geared toward the first 3 months of life.... and the notion that most babies 1st 3 months of life are really the 4th trimester in their developement. Our first child slept soundly from day one..... but we were blown away with this second one. Thank you Dr. Karp! We finally feel like humans again and the stress level in our home has dropped tremendously.

Raised 3 kids, thought I knew most of the techniques for ssothing babies, helping them through rough days (colic, teething, fussy times). But this video brings NEW research and tips to make life easier for parents of new babies...and if you're an aunt or grandparent, you'll learn something new too. SOme of the suggestions are simply amazing, making specific sounds gently into the baby's ears and seeing an instant, peaceful transformation.

Many of these suggestions come from looking at life from the baby's perspective and, in retrospect, seem like common sense (but not as easy as it sounds, otherwise there'd be no need for this video). Well worth your viewing time and could bring relief to many an exhausted parent (and baby).

We are parents of a 5 week old girl - our first child. At about week 3 we noticed more and more crying in the afternoon/evening. Luckily she would calm down by about 11:00 and sleep for 3 hours, so I know we don't have it as bad as some parents. Nonetheless, it really starts to wear you down. On more than one occasion we questioned our decision to have a baby. We tried the Mylicon drops, but those didn't seem to help much. We talked to our doctor who tried to assure us that this is just a phase some babies go through. Then I remembered a book that was featured on Oprah a couple months ago. Being the skeptic that I am, I didn't pay much attention to it. But desperate times call for desperate measures. We looked up the book here on Amazon, and sure enough it got great reviews. Even better, there was a DVD version for those of us that don't have the time to read the book. So we ordered it and had it shipped overnight. As we were watching it, our daughter started fussing so we followed along with the 5 S's. Sure enough, she calmed down within a minute. We were amazed. We use these techniques everytime she starts to fuss and almost everytime we are able to calm her down. Keep in mind that this isn't a cure for colic/crying, but they are ways to help babies calm themselves. The DVD also includes a Q&A session where Dr. Karp answers a lot of common questions, as well as a 3 calming sound tracks. They are sounds recorded from inside the womb, with different degrees of intensity. Pretty bizarre, but they seem to work. Sure beats running the vacuum cleaner! We definitely recommend this DVD, and we will give it as a gift for any new parents we know.

My husband and I ordered this dvd after it was recommended in our childbirth class. We thought we were going to be the most prepared parents on the block. We were disapointed to find that this was not the "secret weapon" we were hoping for.

We did learn some helpful things. I liked seeing the step by step instructions for swaddling. Swaddling really helped our baby sleep. (we also put a put a rolled up blanket between him and the bassinet on each side, like they do in the hospital.) And it's true that, although a baby may not seem to like the swaddling and may appear to be resisiting, it is actually comforting to him. I wasn't confident in my swaddling technique, but the dvd helped.

The swinging and shushing were not terribly helpful. And the sucking, well, duh--that's why they're called pacifiers, after all.

The white noise was interesting. When we brought our baby home from the hospital he cried all night. We put the dvd in and played the white noise and he got quiet and looked like he was in a trance (which was preferable to crying). He didn't go to sleep, but he didn't cry...at least for a while. Eventually he snapped out of it and remembered that he was ticked off. Now that he's a little older we use a white noise cd in his room (downloaded a free hour long mp3, burned it to cd, and keep on "repeat") to help him sleep. It helps.

My husband and I watched the DVD before our daughter was born and it really made us feel prepared for the upcoming challenge. Violet was delivered by C-section and screamed the entire time, but her daddy was able to comfort her on the way to the nursery using shushing and side-lying (the nurses swaddled her)...just half an hour after birth! In the hospital, people were amazed at our ability to calm the baby and thought we had experience with infants. My husband and I are only children and this was really our first experience with a baby. Thank you SO much for giving us the confidence we needed to be GREAT first-time parents. Whenever I'm at the end of my rope and she's screaming, I just swaddle and try the other S's and it works like a miracle. It's saved my sanity so many times and the tone of the DVD is soothing to me. I am so thankful to Dr. Karp. He has given so much to new parents...more than he could ever know. I will definitely make sure any of my friends who are expecting will get a copy of this DVD!

Is this good for older babies?
I think it could be a bit late. All the advice could help but you need to put the techniques into practice.Tnhere are things that if your baby have not been used to he/she might not like them at 6 moths. For example if you have never swaddle your baby he might not like it now. From my experience... Read More
