From the Back Cover:

Dr. Harvey Karp is famous for his brilliant insights into centuries-old parenting problems and for discovering breakthrough solutions that are simple . . . practical . . . and fast working. In The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep, he works his magic once again on the #1 complaint of new parents. The bone-deep fatigue that parents experience when their children sleep poorly is not just a nuisance—it is very serious. Sleep deprivation can provoke depression, illness, marital conflict, and even obesity.

A flood of sleep misinformation and contradictory messages have left parents more confused than ever: “Hold your baby—but don’t spoil her!” “Swaddle your baby—but don’t let him get dependent on it!” Based on Dr. Karp’s thirty years as a pediatrician and child developmentalist, The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep reveals groundbreaking new ideas to prevent or cure most sleep problems in children under five years old, including:

  • How to adjust a baby’s schedule to reduce day sleep and boost night sleep within the very first weeks of life.
  • How to use sleep cues like swaddling and a special type of womb sound to help any infant sleep an extra one to two hours at night within just days.
  • How to defuse bedtime struggles and help your toddler fall asleep faster using a novel sleep training approach called twinkle interruptus.

Plus, The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep reveals many more foolproof tips used by Dr. Karp with thousands of families to quickly turn nighttime shrieks into nightlong slumber.
