According to a BabyCenter.com survey, more sleep is the No.1 desire for
families – even ahead of more time or money. The study found that lack
of sleep also makes moms feel frustrated (58 percent), irritable (78
percent), unable to focus at work (37 percent) and distant from their
spouse (35 percent). Weaving modern science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Karp
will showcase key ideas from The Happiest Baby on the Block, The
Happiest Toddler on the Block and his much anticipated, new book, The
Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep (Birth-5 years) during the event
to eliminate the sleeping problems all parents face.
“Even loving parents can feel pushed to the limit by their baby’s
screams or by toddler explosions,” said Dr. Karp. “But some simple steps
give parents the tools to calm even colicky babies, soothe tantrums fast
and boost cooperation in just days! You almost feel like you’re
‘flipping a switch.’”
The evening will be hosted by actress, entrepreneur and former Miss USA,
Ali Landry who is mom to four-year-old Estela and eight-month-old
Marcelo. Named by People magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful
people in the world, Landry is the founder of the new, parenting product
rating site, Spokesmoms.com.
“My husband and I use Dr. Karp’s advice every single day! It has been a
total lifesaver!” Ali said. “I’m excited to host this event which will
help moms and dads across the country learn Dr. Karp’s techniques to get
a good night’s sleep and have a happy family.”
Millions of parents – from stay-at-home moms to superstars like Madonna,
Michelle Pfeiffer, Larry David and Jewel – have turned to Dr. Karp to
learn his secrets for making babies calm, toddlers patient and
cooperative, and all young children sleeping well and happy. In 2002,
Dr. Karp captured national headlines – and made parents cheer – with his
breakthrough solution to the 3,000-year-old mystery of why babies cry in The
Happiest Baby on the Block book/DVD. Next, he wowed America by
unveiling his surprising tips to stop most temper tantrums and build
toddler patience, in The Happiest Toddler on the Block book/DVD.
“As a working mother, I’m looking forward to this insightful – and
entertaining – one-night event that brings Dr. Karp’s breakthrough
solutions to real parents live at local movie theaters across the
country,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom
Events. “Experienced parents, newbies, pregnant couples – even those
just thinking about having a baby – won’t want to miss ‘Parents
Night Out’ with Dr. Karp.”
Dr. Karp’s DVDs and books have sold millions of copies worldwide. Their
popularity have made him America’s most trusted pediatrician. The New
York Times applauded his work by proclaiming, “Roll over, Dr.
Spock!” Like Dr. Karp’s previous works, his new groundbreaking book, The
Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep (available June 12th),
promises to shatter dozens of long-held myths and revolutionize ideas
about how to best help young kids sleep.
“I founded SwaddleDesigns with the desire to help new parents calm and
comfort their babies so everyone could get more sleep. Nearly ten years
ago, I met Dr. Karp and I was delighted to discover that we shared a
common mission to help parents prevent exhaustion and sleep
deprivation,” said Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and creative director of
SwaddleDesigns. “It’s an honor to partner with Dr. Karp at the
first-ever nationwide Parents Night Out cinema event.”
