Whether their babies are colicky, fussy, or just sometimes cranky, all parents of newborns can benefit from the proven techniques in The CALM Baby Method

With decades of expertise as a pediatric gastroenterologist and a pediatric occupational therapist, the co-authors have helped thousands of parents soothe their high-needs infants—improving attachment, sleep, feeding, and overall quality of life for the whole family. Parents will learn possible causes of their baby's crying and ways to help, including information on reading their baby's cues, attachment, infant massage, positioning, and nutrition. Additional chapters address postpartum depression—especially critical when coping with colic—and what to do when colic extends beyond 6 months of age.
