Happiest Baby on the Block

Happiest Baby on the Block

In 2002, Dr. Harvey Karp stunned the medical world with his research that solved the 3000-year-old mystery of colic. His discovery was the calming reflex - the incredible “off-switch” for infant crying and “on-switch” for baby sleep that can soothe most fussy babies in minutes. Dr. Karp’s DVD and book, The Happiest Baby on the Block, has won countless awards and has redefined how we understand the needs of our newborns.

Dr. Karp’s work has been praised and used by millions of pediatricians, parents, and even superstar moms like Madonna and Michele Pfeiffer. People all over the country are learning the secrets to help make their babies more settled and happy!

Dr. Karp’s research proves that newborns are not really ready for the world when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding your baby, improving their sleep, and soothing their senses:

1. The Missing 4th Trimester: the reason that newborns are so unsettled when they are born.

2. The Calming Reflex: The automatic reset switch that can stop a baby’s crying and increase their sleep during the first months of life.

3. The 5 S’s: Five simple steps that trigger the calming reflex (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking). For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when it is triggered in exactly the right way.

4. The Cuddle Cure: The perfect mix the 5 S’s that can soothe even most colicky infants and add hours to their sleep.


In our Happiest Baby on the Block course we cover the four basic principles discussed above and teach you how to soothe your infant in minutes… or even seconds!!

This course is designed for expecting parents or parents of a newborn (under 3 months).
