5s Method for Soothing a Baby

New parents know it all too well – that cry that just won’t stop. Your baby is fed. He’s dry. You’ve done everything right! Well, the one thing you can’t do is put him back where he wants to be – which is inside Mom. But, guess what? You can replicate the environment. Dr. Harvey Karp introduced us to the 5S method of soothing a crying baby decades ago, and I love his advice. In this video, I walk you through all five steps – and hopefully closer to a few hours rest.
