To the rescue (I hope): the latest offering from The Happiest Baby on the Block author, Dr. Harvey Karp -- The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep. The book, which goes on sale tomorrow, promises "simple solutions for kids from birth to five years," and since that pretty much covers my situation, I was eager to read it.

Parents who are already familiar with Dr. Karp's previous books and DVDs will find some familiar advice here, like using the "5 S's" (swaddling, side/stomach, shushing, swinging, sucking) to help calm your baby, but there's more. Here are some of the sleep-well tips in The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep:

Great tips!  We've always used a white noise machine with our boys and it helps. Do you use any of the methods described in the article?
