Happiest Baby on the Block Class | Dallas, TX
Gibson Newborn Services is pleased to announce the addition of The Happiest Baby program to our schedule of services. The Happiest Baby program is a national curriculum dedicated to teaching parents and caregivers an innovative new approach to quickly calm crying babies and help them sleep longer. These techniques can reduce the occurrence of SIDS, Shaken Baby Syndrome, child abuse and Post Partum Depression.
Half of all new babies cry and fuss more than two hours a day. Their prolonged wails often cause exhaustion, breastfeeding failure, marital stress, maternal depression, and even child abuse. But this extraordinary program, based on the work of Dr. Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, has the potential of reducing that demoralizing crying to just minutes a day.
Our Certified Happiest Baby Educator will teach new parents:
* The Missing 4th Trimester: as odd as it may sound, many babies cry because, essentially, they are born three months too soon.
* The Calming Reflex: a newly discovered group of neonatal reflexes that are virtually an automatic reset switch to stop the crying of almost any baby in the first few months of life.
* The 5 S’s: how to correctly perform the 5 simple steps (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging, and sucking) that trigger the calming reflex.
* Simple tips to help your baby sleep longer…tonight!
We offer in-home private sessions as well as local group classes. Many of our clients enjoy having a Happiest Baby party. Invite all of your pregnant friends and those that have recently delivered and we’ll do the rest! The class also makes for a great shower gift.
