Dr. Harvey Karp | The Happiest Baby on the Block

Renowned pediatrician and international bestselling author Dr. Harvey Karp shares essential new mom advice regarding sleep (yours and baby's), signs you might have postpartum mood disorder and not know it, and effective ways to sooth your baby in the "4th trimester".

His world famous 5 S's technique was so successful in getting Sabrina to stop crying, I'm excited to try again with baby #2. We also chat about Dr. Karp's new, revolutionary, safe and effective baby bed, the "Snoo" and what makes it different from everything else on the market.

And he answers my questions about: baby swings, temperament, swaddling, sleep cues, SIDS, exposure to wifi radiation, at what age Dr. Karp believes bed sharing is safe, white noise machines, and so much more! Listen up and share with expectant mom friends!
