Publisher's Summary

A natural, healthy baby usually cries for one of the following reasons: hungry, dirty, cold/wet (sweaty), or tired. There are other cries of unwellness, but these are not as common in a child and are easier to understand with other symptoms. 

The most popular cry is for feeding, usually a "waaah, waaah" that is growing in volume and frustration and can only be calmed down by the food. There are cries for tiredness or starvation that can be easily confused, and very often, a mother uses food instead of letting the baby sleep, which only raises the baby's distress. If you have established a correct feeding routine, you usually can tell between the two. You can also check things like rooting where the baby curls, the tongue searches for food - this is a sure sign of hunger.

It’s a baby recipe book

It is literally a list of baby recipes. Maybe 5% is other tips. This is NOT an newborn book. DO NOT listen to this if your baby is only feeding on milk still. Waste of time and a credit.

One of the greatest audiobook!

My baby is now 10 weeks old and we've been using the techniques in this audiobook for the last two weeks. I wish I'd listen to it earlier! A lot of the techniques are commonly known ones, but the way they are put together in this audiobook work, while the way the same techniques are talked about elsewhere, doesn't necessarily work since they're used in isolation. My baby is noticeably more settled - yes, he's developmentally more likely to be settled, but we see him settle as we do the actions this audiobook tells us.

This audiobook really helped me!

This audiobook really helped my husband and me with getting our baby on a sleep schedule. I was having some dark days at work before listening to this audiobook, and after our baby sleeps through the night. You should get this audiobook!

Great audiobook! Techniques work!

Great audiobook! Techniques work if you apply them. Don't give up easily if it doesn't work the first try, including swaddle. We thought the baby gayest the swaddle because she fought it at first. Within 2 nights sleeping with it, she was hooked. Slept through the night from then one. Plus does a great job of dispelling old wives' tales and myths. Great understanding of baby development from birth. I loved it and recommend it to everyone I know. Goes well with the wonder weeks. Less frustration and more patience because you understand what is happening in the baby's stages.
