"The Happiest Baby on the Block" – Dr. Karp

Half of all new babies cry and fuss more than two hours a day. Their prolonged wails often cause exhaustion, breastfeeding failure, marital stress, maternal depression and even child abuse. In what promises to be a new classic in the field of parenting books, Dr. Karp reveals to the world a treasure sought by parents for centuries -the calming reflex – the virtual off-switch for a baby's crying.

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."

Session 2: 3-4:30 p.m.

"The Happiest Toddler on the Block" – Dr. Karp

Anyone living with toddlers knows how quickly they can change. One minute all is bliss – then BAM! – they erupt into a mega-tantrum on aisle six at K-mart! No wonder exhausted and time-crunched parents feel trapped in a revolving door of "No!" and "Don't!"

In "The Happiest Toddler on the Block", Dr. Karp reveals a treasure sought by parents for centuries – the secret to calming tantrums in minutes…or less!
