In this important parenting book, the author gives an amazing gift to parents that want to stop their baby from crying. It's no surprise that pediatricians admire him, and a large number of parents in Los Angeles, including working mothers and famous actors have gone to him to learn the secrets for making crying babies happy. Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom in this interesting reassessment of early infancy, and shows that babies are not completely ready for the world when they are born. He has created, using both research and experience, four basic principles that are vital for understanding babies, and they include: The Missing Fourth Trimester as one main reason babies cry, because they are born three months too soon; The Calming Reflex: this reset switch is used to stop the crying of any baby in the first few months of life; The 5 "S's", which are simple steps to turn on your baby's calming reflexes, and last; The Cuddle Cure: Combining the 5 "S's" to calm even colicky babies.
