Happiest Baby on the Block: A Conversation with Dr. Harvey Karp
You’ve jiggled, you’ve rocked, you’ve walked the floor, but nothing seems to ease your baby’s distress. Your nerves are frazzled, you’re sleep-deprived, and you feel like screaming. Probably every parent has been there, but countless parents also have been helped through those exhausting moments by Dr. Harvey Karp, author of Happiest Baby on the Block. He joins Marti & Erin this week for a rich discussion of the “4th trimester,” how to activate a baby’s “calming reflex” and why “the five Ss” can make life (and sleep!) better for your baby and you!
