Want the Happiest Baby on the Block?

Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Do you want the happiest and calmest baby in your circle of friends? You’ve come to the right blog post. Ryan and I have been teaching the Happiest Baby on the Block class with CHKD for nine years. Based on the book “The Happiest Baby on the Block” by Dr. Harvey Karp, the class offers new and expectant parents a hands-on learning experience on how to calm and soothe your newborn – even at their fussiest – in just minutes. We used the techniques from this class to calm our daughter, Sophia, when she was a newborn and can attest to their success.

Ryan and I teach this class together; we’ve found that working in tandem demonstrates that neither parent needs to take a backseat on this wild ride called parenthood. We add in personal stories, safe sleep tips, and freebies you won't find in many other baby classes. And the best part: it’s FREE.

We encourage you to tell your friends, caregivers, and any parents-to-be you know about this class. We can promise that they will have a good time and leave with valuable information as they enter parenthood. Register online at

Hope to see you there!
