Fourth trimester blues…

 

crying_baby

It is said that babies, especially in their first few months of life, can experience "fourth trimester" issues. Babies can have a difficult time getting used to the huge amount of stimuli present in life outside of Mom’s body. Their reaction to all of this is to cry and cry.

The Happiest Baby On The Block method formulated by Dr. Harvey Karp, addresses these issues by helping you learn how to effectively recreate the environment of the womb, outside of Mom’s body. Once you have learned the steps, you will be able to alleviate some, if not all, of your baby’s colic symptoms.

The 5 S’s

There are 5 components to this method which, when used together, work amazingly well to calm your crying baby and in many cases help your baby go to sleep with no fuss.

Using cross-cultural techniques combined with his own research, Dr. Karp has developed the "five S’s system". Some babies will need all five, others just a few to help induce what he calls the "calming reflex."

These steps seem pretty easy, but seeing them done properly, in conjunction with each other, is the key to relieving your baby’s colic symptoms and general fussiness and making Mom, Dad, and baby less stressed and much happier!

Many people have reported that they have had MUCH more success with the calming technique after they actually saw it in practice or on the DVD…which TLC Newborn will loan out to you.
