I have heard about your book thru friends, but my little boy is almost 8 months. Does your book apply to babies that old?

At 8 months The Happiest Baby techniques would not be of much help to your baby boy but he is actually at the perfect age to begin implementing the Happiest Toddler on the Block techniques!

The Happiest Toddler on the Block DVD & Book show simple, yet extremely effective ways to teach young children (8 months to 5 years) patience, respect & how to eliminate 50-90% of tantrums in just days. Dr. Karp recommends parents watch the DVD first then, when time permits go back & read the book as it contains additional information and details on topics such as picky eating, potty training, sleep & discipline.

    I have a 3 1/2 month old boy who was has a severe cow’s milk protein allergy. He was about 1 month old when we found out. He cried day and night and never slept. We finally found a formula that was helping, but he still cried and never slept. I bought the DVD one night and tried the methods. We could actually get him to stop crying and sleep about 1 hour at a time. He is now 3 1/2 months and he is waking up a lot at night and I have to pick him up and walk him around to get him back to sleep. During the day his naps are 30min to 1 hour at a time, and that is if he even sleeps at all. He is so cranky because he is so tired. Everyone tells me I have spoiled him by walking him around all the time and to let him cry himself to sleep. I tried that and he cried for 2 hours never going to sleep. We use the Happiest Baby methods, but they don’t seem to be working. He just cries louder and louder with each method we try. I haven’t slept since he was born and I need help. I feel helpless and just want my son to be able to sleep peacefully. Thank you. Rachel

    Hi Louise,
    That’s a challenge. The key is to wake a baby a little when you put him to bed (starting in the first days) to teach self soothing…at this time you can still try the sound (as loud as a shower…the rougher, hair dryer sound), encourage a lovey, and you may need to do a sleep training routine (this should work within 2-3 days…you can read more in the FIRST edition of The Happiest Toddler..your library should have it).
    Best of luck! Dr. Karp

    Hi Shyla,
    Glad the baby and toddler ideas have been helpful! Sounds like you have made good progress going form 2-3 wakings to just 1. Does she have a lovey? Are you using rumbly white noise all night as loud as a medium shower)? I also recommend you read the section on twinkle interruptus…that’s great to help kids this age get over night waking.
    Good luck, Dr. K
