I would like to invite parents and caregivers to explore Dr. Harvey Karp, Pediatrician and authors techniques on how to calm and sooth crying infants. As all parents know, even though we have fed and diapered and cared for our baby as best we can, sometimes they just cry and cry with no end in sight. Not only does this lead to fatigue but it also has a tendency to give parents a feeling that they just are not good at parenting. Infants that continuously cry and cry could lead to Shaken Baby, breastfeeding failure and contribute to PPD.
Dr. Karp created The Happiest Baby on the Block and the 5 S's to teach parents and caregivers how to turn off the crying switch by turning on the baby's calming reflex. His theory of the 4th trimester (basically recreating the womb experience for the first 3 months of life) is truly revolutionary in its approach and has immediate results. I would encourage parents and caregivers to visit his website, www.thehappiestbaby.com to find out more information about this incredible program.
To further bring these techniques to parents and caregivers, Dr. Karp created an educator program which certifies educators to teach his techniques in their local communities. Since its creation in 2005, over 2700 individuals worldwide have signed on for this at home study certification. The program comes on DVD and is being taught in hospitals throughout the US, military installations working in the Family Advocacy Program as well as state and local health districts. To find out more about the certification program, please visit www.thehappiestbaby.org.
