New Parent Must Read: The Happiest Guide to Great Sleep

Disclosure:

I am participating in a book review campaign with One2One Network. I received this book from Harper Collins at no cost. I have not received compensation. My participation in the campaign enters me into a drawing for a gift card. All opinions stated are my own.

I recently gave birth to my daughter on 2/28/13 and  can I start by saying it was perfect timing when I was sent a copy of Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep to review. Babies, especially newborn babies sleep allot but they wake often to be changed and fed. My first week home with my newborn, she was waking every two hours. I was like a walking zombie. But as the weeks went on she improved. Now she sleeps about 4-5hrs a night before waking for a feeding and then returning to sleep for another 4-5hours thanks to the techniques I learned in the book.

America’s favorite pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp, now focuses his unparalleled knowledge, experience, and insight on solving the #1 concern of parents everywhere: sleep & exhaustion. With the Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep, Dr. Karp-bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block—offers invaluable advice on how to help your newborn, infant, or toddler get the rest they need, while debunking some of the most widely held myths about babies and sleep. Dr. Karp’s advice has already be sought after by some of Hollywood’s celebs—including Michelle Pfeiffer, Jewel, Pierce Brosnan, and Madonna—and now his The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep can help anyone guide even the most resistant small child gently toward wonderful, restful, healthful slumber, so that mom and dad can enjoy a good night’s sleep themselves! Dr. Karp’s surprising insights include:

  • How to train brand new babies to sleep better: Infants can be taught to sleep at least one extra hour from the first weeks of life! Dr. Karp shows how to safely boost baby sleep in just days.
  • What’s the best white noise (and which ones worsen sleep): The right white noise (low pitched and rumbling) is the key to good sleep—even through teething—for all babies. Plus, it even gives parents a more restful sleep
  • Why parents should always wake a sleeping baby: For good sleep, babies must learn how to self-soothe. The best way to teach babies how to fall back to sleep—when they rouse in the middle of the night—is to wake them just as they’re being put into bed.
  • How to enjoy the benefits – and avoid the risks – of swaddling: Swaddling dramatically improves a new baby’s sleep. Yet, many states are shockingly banning this ancient parenting tool. Smart moms should do it and Dr. Karp will teach them how to do it properly and safely.
  • The importance of powering down: Staring at bright screens at night (TVs, computers, phones) can wreak a toddler and a parent’s sleep.
  • Easy “no-cry” tips that end infant and toddler bedtime struggles in just days!

I learned about the  5 S’s, that every parent should learn and follow because they work. The same night I started using the techniques I saw improved sleep with my newborn. On top of all the sleep advise and tips there is  also an enormous amount of additional information, not just about sleep.I  think every parent with a 5-and-under child should own a copy of this book.  With THE HAPPIEST BABY GUIDE TO GREAT SLEEP, no longer will new parent have to suffer months of sleep deprivation and no longer will babies have to cry themselves to sleep. Backed by compelling science, common sense and decades of experience, Dr. Karp’s landmark guide will revolutionize how millions of children drift off to dreamland.

Which ones? Driving around the neighborhood to make a child fall asleep at night. (Have you seen the gas prices nowadays? Ouch!). Turning the T.V. on (for white noise). Congratulations, you have little night owls in training. Getting up to rock the baby back to sleep when they shriek in the middle of the night: a surefire way to developing bags and dark circles post-partum. There are countless more mistakes that Dr. Karp identifies and provides better solutions to help baby and parents get a better night’s sleep.
