"TRACY HOGG HAS GIVEN PARENTS A GREAT GIFT-the ability to develop early insight into their child's temperament."
"-Los Angeles Family
"
When Tracy Hogg's "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" was first published, it soared onto bestseller lists across the country. Parents everywhere became "whisperers" to their newborns, amazed that they could actually communicate with their baby within weeks of their child's birth. Tracy gave parents what for some amounted to a miracle: the ability to understand their baby's every coo and cry so that they could tell immediately if the baby was hungry, tired, in real distress, or just in need of a little TLC. Tracy also dispelled the insidious myth that parents must go sleepless for the first year of a baby's life-because a happy baby sleeps through the night. Now you too can benefit from Tracy's more than twenty years' experience. In this groundbreaking book, she shares simple, accessible programs in which you will learn:
- E.A.S.Y.-how to get baby to eat, play, and sleep on a schedule that will make every member of the household's life easier and happier.
- S.L.O.W.-how to interpret what your baby is trying to tell you (so you don't try to feed him when he really wants a nap).
- How to identify which type of baby yours is-Angel, Textbook, Touchy, Spirited, or Grumpy-and then learn the best way to interact with that type.
- Tracy's Three Day Magic-how to change any and all bad habits (yours and the baby's) in just three days.
At the heart of Tracy's simple but profound message: treat the baby as you would like to be treated yourself. Reassuring, down-to-earth, and often flying in the face of conventional wisdom, "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" promises parents not only a healthier, happier baby but a more relaxed and happy household as well.

well-balanced approach to parenting

Customer review by NebraskaMommy

5.0 stars 3/17/2008 by NebraskaMommy

This is a great book for parents who want a well-balanced, middle-of-the-road approach to parenting, without the extremes of BabyWise or Sears. I started my son on the EASY routine the day he came home from the hospital. It sometimes took 45 minutes to wake him awake after each daytime feeding, time I could've been napping myself, but the benefits quickly paid off. My son was sleeping five hours at night at one week, six hours at night at two weeks, eight hours at four weeks, and twelve hours at twelve weeks! He has a spirited, high-strung personality and the days we get off the routine he is irritable all day and won't sleep at night--he's definitely not naturally a "good sleeper" so I know our success is something he learned and wasn't born with. Tracy's other advice for preparing for baby, caring for a newborn, learning baby's cues, swaddling, diapering, feeding, respecting your baby, and everything in between make this book a must-have for every new parent!

it's not as terrible as BabyWise, but there is some terrible advice in there. First off- Tracy Hogg (who is now deceased) has been discredited on a lot of what she's written about herself. She is no lactaction consultant, like she made herself out to be, and she gives TERRIBLE breastfeeding advice (pump to see if you have any milk-- totally wrong advice. The baby is more effective at getting milk than the pump is.)

I couldn't handle the cry it out methods and was told by a lactation consultant (whom I know personally) about this book. It is highly recommended for all moms, especially if you want to have a no nonsense approach to sleep. She has wonderful logical advice that just seems to fit. My 3 year old has been a wonderful sleeper (she's the spirited baby too!) thanks to Tracy Hogg.
