5s Method for Soothing a Baby

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


New parents know it all too well – that cry that just won’t stop. Your baby is fed. He’s dry. You’ve done everything right! Well, the one thing you can’t do is put him back where he wants to be – which is inside Mom. But, guess what? You can replicate the environment. Dr. Harvey Karp introduced us to the 5S method of soothing a crying baby decades ago, and I love his advice. In this video, I walk you through all five steps – and hopefully closer to a few hours rest.

If babies (and you!) are finding it tough to sleep white noise can help soothe them! I have a facebook group where you can chat live on the feed and ask or offer questions, tips and advice. We have found this, amongst other remedies, have helped with our twins Elliot and Isla already!
