Happiest Baby on the Block

I have to admit that I thought the Happiest Baby on the Block revolution was kind of a load of crap. We watched the DVD and this guy (who just got $19.99 of my hard earned money), would take a screaming infant, wrap him up tight, shush in his ear and the kid would go out like a light. I was pretty sure the babies in the DVD were robots. But, Norah has been a cranky pants the past couple of nights and so BVZ has busted out some of the HBOTB's bag of tricks. Low and behold, it really does work. Norah gets a tight swaddle, BVZ cradles her on her side, gives her a good shush, and a quick rock, and she is content as could be. Best $20 I ever spent.

I recommend the swaddle me blanket--yes it is a few more bucks in the never ending quest for sleep, but so worth it. It has velcro and is easy to use even in the dark. Norah does look quite peaceful in her homemade burrito, though.
