    Not for older babies...

    This book is very useful for babies with happiness and sleep issues up to about 3 months, 4 max. Great for those early colicky months. If baby is over 4 months old i wouldnt bother reading it as none of the book will apply to you.

    Happiest Baby on the Block: The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Baby Sleep Longer

    Great book for first time parents with a newborn. The ideas apply to those early months, especially if your baby has colic. However, the ideas simply don't apply to a baby over 4 months. Swaddling and Shhhing (two of the keys) simply don't apply to older babies, and relying on the other keys: Swinging and Sucking will only create a situation where your baby relies on these things to sleep. (Trust me, my 1 year old still needed these, most likely because I used them so much during her early months!) Also, the other 'S' side/stomach position goes against the Back to Sleep research that says babies are at risk of SIDS when sleeping on their stomach (even if they do like it better). I found more answers for my older baby, and ways to prevent the problems from happening in the first place for my next baby, in a different book: The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
