This is a fantastic book and video, though the video is dated. But I have tried all the 5 S’s and they work like a charm- especially swaddling. Swaddling snugly will help parents get much needed sleep. Great gift for an expecting friend or family member!
Great in theory

Just did not work for my baby beyond 15 minutes...i do all this stuff and get my baby to sleep to have her wake up screaming bloody murder after 15 minutes. Great interesting read but doesnt work...its not the miracle I'd thought it would be.
