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!

    “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.

    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.
