No wonder pediatricians across the country are praising him and thousands of Los Angeles parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna and Pierce Brosnan, have turned to him to learn the secrets for making babies happy.
Never again will parents have to stand by helpless and frazzled while their poor baby cries and cries. Dr. Karp has found there IS a remedy for colic. “I share with parents techniques known only to the most gifted baby soothers throughout history …and I explain exactly how they work.”
In an innovative and thought-provoking reevaluation of early infancy, Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not fully ready for the world when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding babies as well as improving their sleep and soothing their senses:
The Missing Fourth Trimester: as odd as it may sound, one of the main reasons babies cry is because they are born three months too soon.
The Calming Reflex: the automatic reset switch to stop crying of any baby in the first few months of life.
The 5 “S’s”: the simple steps (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking) that trigger the calming reflex. For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when it is triggered in precisely the right way. Unlike other books that merely list these techniques Dr. Karp teaches parents exactly how to do them, to guide cranky infants to calm and easy babies to serenity in minutes…and help them sleep longer too.

When I became a new father, I knew that I wanted to be the best parent that I could possibly be, but I didn't know exactly what I should do. Talking to the other parents, I found that I wasn't the only one with an unread pile of parenting books.
We should read them all, but there has to be an easier way to learn how to be a great parent. This was the inspiration for #dadsclub, a private book club for dads. An easy way for dads to "finish" 100 books in a year, without flipping a single page.
Each week, Dad's Club members are sent a 10-minute audio summary of a New York Times or Amazon best seller. It's bite-sized, actionable knowledge delivered straight to your favorite podcast app.
Together, the Dad's Club is on a mission to help each other be better, so our families can live better.

It'd be great to have all the info without reading through all the bs in the books.
This is a great idea. Let’s be honest, nobody has time for parenting books nowadays.
I’ve definitely lamented the lack of Dad-specific parenting books, advice, etc.
