We got this product out of the "desperation" and it did not do anything at all for our child. I think in this situation we do anything we think can help. Hopefully it could help others, but it did nothing for our baby. It seems the baby must be rather small in order for the pad to be effective. Our child was about 11 -12 lbs and seemed to dwarf the little pad with the circular rotating massager in it. We were unable to place it on him the way the product recommends, he just didn't seem to fit. The only thing, beside time that seemed to work was the football hold and swaying for hours on end.
