He would not sleep in the beautiful cradle we had or his crib and rarely would take a nap even inches away from me or enjoy the swing. As you can imagine this was a very stressful time and nerve racking for a first time mom with only a few hours of sleep.
Well thank goodness for my mothers day gift from my mom! She bought me the happiest baby on the block book and it was a life saver! We learned the swaddle technique and this alone was worth the money my mom spent. We got at least two extra hours of sleep out of him when using the techniques correctly. He began to nap along for short periods of time and within a few weeks was sleeping all night in his crib.
There were other GREAT techniques in the book that worked wonders and it truly made parenting our son is the early months much more relaxed, peaceful, AND enjoyable! This book not only gets the mommy and baby seal of approval BUT also the daddy seal of approval. Everything loved this book.
