Brought thoroughly up-to-date-with the latest
information on everything from diapering to daycare, from midwifery to
hospital "birthing rooms," from postpartum nutrition to infant
development-THE BABY BOOK remains the one must-have resource for
today's new parents.
In this perennially bestselling and
encyclopedic guide, Dr. Bill and Martha Sears draw from their vast
experience both as medical professionals and as parents to provide
authoritative, comprehensive information on virtually every aspect of
infant care. THE BABY BOOK focuses on the essential needs of
babies-eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort-as it
addresses the questions of greatest concern to parents today.
In perhaps the most important parenting book
of the decade, Dr. Harvey Karp reveals an extraordinary treasure sought
by parents for centuries -- an automatic "off-switch" for their baby's
No wonder pediatricians across the country are
praising him and thousands of Los Angeles parents, from working moms to
superstars like Madonna and Pierce Brosnan, have turned to him to learn
the secrets for making babies happy.
Never again will parents have to stand by
helpless and frazzled while their poor baby cries and cries. Dr. Karp
has found there IS a remedy for colic. "I share with parents techniques
known only to the most gifted baby soothers throughout history...and I
explain exactly how they work."
In a innovative and thought-provoking
reevaluation of early infancy, Dr. Karp blends modern science and
ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not fully ready for the world
when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has
developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding
babies as well as improving their sleep and soothing their senses:
* The Missing Fourth Trimester: as odd as it
may sound, one of the main reasons babies cry is because they are born
three months too soon.
* The Calming Reflex: the automatic reset
switch to stop crying of any baby in the first few months of life.
* The 5 "S's": the simple steps (swaddling,
side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking) that trigger the
calming reflex. For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to
fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when
it is triggered in precisely the right way. Unlike other books that
merely list these techniques Dr. Karp teaches parents exactly how to do
them, to guide cranky infants to calm and easy babies to serenity in
minutes...and help them sleep longer too.
* The Cuddle Cure: the perfect mix the 5
"S's" that can soothe even the most colicky of infants.
In the book, Dr. Karp also explains:
What is colic?
Why do most babies get much more upset in the evening?
How can a parent calm a baby -- in mere minutes?
Can babies be spoiled?
When should a parent of a crying baby call the doctor?
How can a parent get their baby to sleep a few hours
Even the most loving moms and dads sometimes
feel pushed to the breaking point by their infant's persistent cries.
Coming to the rescue, however, Dr. Karp places in the hands of parents,
grandparents, and all childcare givers the tools they need to be able
to calm their babies almost as easily as...turning off a light. --This
