If you or someone you know has had a child since 2002, it’s likely you’ve given or been given The Happiest Baby on the Block by Dr. Harvey Karp. You’ve almost definitely heard of the 5 S’s. Some parents with babies born after 2016 may have been lucky enough to obtain a SNOO sleeper to soothe fussy newborns. Dr. Karp has built an empire around helping babies sleep. But he by no means built that empire alone.
The business of baby sleep is, in fact, a family affair. What’s not often discussed when Dr. Karp’s work is heralded around the world is that his wife Nina, and daughter Lexi, actually played pivotal roles in growing the business to where it is today. Dr. Karp was eager to brag about the impact his female family members have had on his work – and his life.
