Amazing techniques for calming babies, and getting more sleep for parents !

There's no baby in my immediate future,..but I found this facinating anyway.

Kev's PICkS: Even more interesting for me was the 'sequel',.. "The Happiest Toddler on the Block", by the same doctor.

These techniques look amazing! This video was recommended to me by multiple parents, and I'm told that it really works. I haven't had my baby yet, but I feel better prepared now that I know about the five S's.
