The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep Review

My son is an adult now, but I remember many sleepless nights when he was a baby. I remember the long rides, the nonstop crying, being exhausted and feeling hopeless. I wish I had this book back then.  I found this book to be very informative and well written.  It is very easy to follow and thoroughly explained.  A must have, in my opinion,  for any mother with an infant or child who has problems sleeping.

The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep is by NY Times Best Selling Author, Harvey Karp, M.D.

This book provides simple solutions for kids from Birth to 5 Years. The chapters are broken down by age groups and help you progress as your child grows. This book helps you do the following:

•Recognize which white noises are best (and which worsen sleep)

•Teach your child to soothe itself to sleep

•Benefits and risks of swaddling

•The importance of powering down
