The Happiest Baby on the Block
 

Did you know that colic is unheard of in many cultures around the world? Learn why!

“The Happiest Baby” solves the 3,000-year-old medical mystery, “What is colic?” And, more importantly, it reveals Dr. Karp’s discovery of the “calming reflex”… a virtual “off-switch” that all crying babies are born with.

Learn an extraordinary approach to calm your baby in the Happiest Baby Class.

New parents will learn step-by step how to help babies sleep longer and how to soothe even the fussiest infant in minutes...or less!

This program, is based on the work of Dr. Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP
