really liked it
Recommended for: soon-to-be parents, parents of young babies
Read in February, 2008

I have to read this book to be certified in the curriculum for my job with Prevent Child Abuse Illinois, and normally I wouldn't put this type of thing on a personal book list, but it's so great! Obviously I don't have children, but some day in the future when I do, I definitely want to use these techniques! It talks of the "5 S's to Stop a Crying Baby"- swaddle, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging, and sucking! And I have the DVDs for the whole curriculum, which is amazing! The guy is a genius! Every parent should have access to this info! (And if you are interested and have a baby, and live in IL, let me know or go to Prevent Child Abuse Illinois' website....later this fall, I will be able to teach the curriculum for free!)
