Tracy Hogg knows babies. She can calm even the most distressed or difficult infant, because she understands their language. Hence, her clients call her 'The Baby Whisperer'. Her incredible sensitivity and ability to read infants' cries, coos and assorted baby noises quickly earned Tracy the admiration and gratitude of high-profile couples, including a host of celebrities. In this remarkable book, Tracy demystifies the magic she has performed with some five thousand babies. She teaches parents how to work out what kind of baby they have, what kind of mother and father they are, and what kind of parenting plan will work best for them. Believing that babies need to become part of the family - rather than dominate it - she has developed a practical programme that works with infants as young as a day old. Her methods are also applauded by scientists: 'Tracy's is a voice that should be heard. She appears very knowledgeable about modern infant research and has incorporated this to a level parents can understand. In spite of all the baby how-tos on the market, this one will stand out.'
  • This book should be given to ALL pregnant ladies! I have twin girls who were born 7 weeks early. I had gotten into the habit of nursing them to sleep and CONSTANTLY holding them, which worked until they started gaining weight. I knew I wanted to sleep train them, but our doctor said "No, they don't weigh enough" (at 11lbs). I didn't intend on ferberizing them. Then 2 other twin moms suggested this book. I followed it, and in 3 days I went from being a human pacifier with a bad back to a lady who has time to write a review, AND shave my legs! I like that I can sleep train without crying it out. My girls are 5 months, but I wish I had this from day 1! Buy this for all of your friends. This book, a bottle of wine, and a gift card for coffee.

  • I work as a postpartum doula (aka 'Baby Nurse'). This book is my textbook and I recommend it to all my mommas and have used its principles for the babies with consistent success. In a nutshell, Tracy Hogg's recommend a simple routine that begins with eating, followed by activity (playtime), and then nap. This routine is repeated every 2-4 hrs. You will know what baby is crying for if she is on a routine and you know that since you just fed her, what she is crying for is not more food, but probably sleep!

    Tracy's mantra is 'Start as you mean to go on.' If you want your 8 month old baby to sleep only in mommas arms, do it when they're 1 wk old! But if you want to be able to lay baby down in the crib and leave him to peacefully fall asleep for naps and bedtime, you've got to get them used to doing it from the beginning.

    There's no crying-it-out or heartless rigid schedules, but neither is there a 'baby's running the show' and momma's surviving on 2 hrs of sleep at night. When it's bedtime for baby, Tracy recommends a simple technique called 'Pick-up-put-down', where whenever baby cries, you pick her up only until she stops crying, then put her back in bed immediately. After doing this enough times, baby gets tired and falls asleep. In just a few days of doing this consistently, baby need less and less of this, until she is contentedly soothing herself to sleep in her own crib.

    I will say, not only does this stuff make sense, it works. And for me, it pays! People will pay $200 a day to have me stay in their home and sleep train their baby! (Of course they could just buy the 1 cent book off Amazon and read and follow it themselves... But some people can afford to pay someone to help, and I'm happy they hire me!)

    One baby I helped was a 7 month old, breastfeeding baby boy. He was nursing on demand, sleeping only 20 min max at a time during the day. During the night he was up 4-7 times in an 8 hr period of time. His momma was ragged and exhausted as she tried to satisfy his needs while keeping up with a 3 yr old and helping with the family business as well. He was a chubby 21 lb bundle of smiles, so there was not an issue of hunger going on. He just didn't know how to self soothe himself to sleep. He knew only how to nurse himself to sleep. Then the slightest disturbance would wake him back up and he didn't know how to drift back to sleep. Well, using the pick-up-put-down methods to put him back down in bed, combined with a good routine as outlined by Tracy Hogg, by the end of a week, this little guy was taking 1 long nap (2.5 hrs) and 2 shorter 45 min- 1 hr naps during the day and sleeping a solid 11 hrs at night! And he was so much happier--no more fussy, fussy. And he had a rested, happy momma.

  • Where do I begin! I wish I read this book before our first child as it would have saved us from months and months of sleep struggles! I bought this book before our 2nd child arrived but didn't actually read it until he was about 5 weeks old. We were exhausted with a newborn who we saw was heading in the exact same direction as our oldest with the same signals of sleep issues. Nursing constantly and wouldn't sleep anywhere but in our arms or on our chest at night (we had to take shifts just to get 3-4 hours of "interrupted sleep". After realizing what type of child we have according to Tracy's descriptions and gently working with him, he is now sleeping in his crib for naps (1.5+ hour each), and sleeping there at night (only getting up 1-2 times for feeding). It only took 3 days!! I know this will only get better for us as he grows older and can't be more thankful for the sanity this advise has provided our family!! With our oldest son, we reluctantly decided the "cry it out" method after months of no results and even though he is now sleeping great, we could have avoided it all together if we started MUCH earlier and encouraged good habits. The methods described in this book are painless and worth the time and energy to read and practice. HIGHLY recommended to any parents-to-be (first timers and on).

  • As I write this, my baby is taking a nap that she put herself to sleep for ! Just 4 days ago, my daughter needed to be rocked, bounced, walked and jiggled to sleep for every nap, and for hours before bedtime. My back, arms and neck were killing me and I was frustrated to tears, but I couldn't bring myself to let her just cry it out. I wanted to teach her to fall asleep on her own but needed a different approach, and I felt she was ready too. We started the "pick up put down method" four days ago with one of her naps, and after picking up and putting down about 10 times, she fell asleep on her own. There is still crying involved of course, because learning a new skill is frustrating. But with this method I felt better knowing I was constantly reassuring her and supporting her. last night I put her in her bassinet and after a few moments of looking around, she put herself right to sleep! It has been a lifesaver to not spend an hour putting her down for each nap. I also have been following the EASY routine - I don't know how parents do it without that routine! It has eliminated so much of the guesswork, I always know why she is crying and how to fix it. She's a happier baby on this routine and I'm a happier mama!
