Comment posted The Great Surprise About Using Swaddling to Calm Colic by Maureen.

I know some parents are able to calm their fussy infants with just swaddling, but my baby had colic and needed 3 or 4 of the 5 S’s before she would relax. But swaddling was always the first step!

  • Tears for Baby, Tears for Parents
    I felt exactly this way with my first baby, it was so hard. Dr. Karp’s methods were a lifesaver for our family! New parents beat themselves up for not being able to soothe their infants. I totally see the link between postpartum depression, its so overwhelming for some.
  • Colicky Baby? Read This Before Calling an Exorcist
    “The Happiest Baby on the Block” really helped us know how to comfort our baby. Our baby’s non-stop crying became absolutely no crying within ONE WEEK of doing Dr. Karp’s methods. I really believe that mimicking the womb for our newborn 24/7 helped her feel more secure and comfortable with her new surroundings.

  • The Dreaded Colic – A “CRYsis” for the whole family
    The 5 S’s were a lifesaver! I don’t know how my husband and I would have survived that time if we hadn’t learned about Dr. Karp’s techniques in a birthing class. We were so overwhelmed and tired, the non-stop crying can make anyone feel vulnerable and powerless.

    We didn’t know about Dr. Karp’s suggestions when our newborn had colic, but boy would that have been helpful! We will definitely use the 5 S’s for our next baby! Thanks for the information.
