5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! She CAN stop crying!!! August 21, 2002
By Kim
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEW solutions for crying, difficult babies July 31, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have for new parents July 23, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

The need for a "fourth trimester" for our newborns, as suggested in "THE HAPPIEST BABY ON THE BLOCK", is something I've taught for years in childbirth, parenting and infant massage classes. Still, I was surprised at the excitement I felt while watching Dr. Karp's video. The idea of pulling together some basic tools people naturally use to calm babies, and thereby helping to elicit a "calming reflex", struck me as simple, yet brilliant. Dr. Karp also provides powerful rationale for why the tools work, and how to combine them for the best results.

Currently I also work as a lactation specialist. I see brand new parents who are in the midst of that immediate postpartum "overwhelm". I have found it supportive to my efforts to refer parents to Dr. Karp's work, as the problems with breastfeeding are not always about feeding. New parents can lack the basic information, skills, and confidence needed to interact successfully with their babies. This, in turn, can complicate the baby's adjustment from womb to world, and negatively affect many aspects of life, including feeding. Seeing these calming techniques in action on this great video makes it possible to understand and learn them quickly and easily...a plus for new parents! Parents' confidence then increases as they learn to pay respectful attention to their newborns, and implement Dr. Karp's techniques and rationale. As they see their positive influence thier baby's ability to calm , the parents themselves become calmer. Calmer parents and babies can positively affect breast feeding.
Also, as a parenting educator, I know this type of early "success cycle" cycle between parent and child can set the stage for making parenting easier and far more rewarding for the rest of their lives. I encourage every new and prospective parent to get Dr. Karp's video, "THE HAPPIEST BABY ON THE BLOCK"!

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
