Publisher Comments:


It's an insidious myth that all new parents must give up not only their sleep but their entire lives for the first year of a baby's life. "Codswallop", says British-born Tracy Hogg.

Having worked with more than five thousand babies over the past twenty years, and dubbed "The Baby Whisperer" by her grateful clientele, Tracy has the unique ability to understand a baby's every coo and cry. She can tell instantly whether a baby is hungry, tired, in real distress, or just in need of a little TLC. But her most amazing gift is her ability to teach parents how they too can "whisper" to their babies.

In this groundbreaking book, Tracy concentrates her vast knowledge (and huge doses of uncommon sense) into simple, accessible programs that parents can begin as early as the first weeks of a baby's life. With these programs 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.

    But perhaps the most important part of Tracy's philosophy is contained in one word: respect. Tracy advises treating your baby as you would any human being — think twice before shaking loud toys in a baby's face, lifting a baby's legs over her head with no advance warning, or even letting a baby cry it out. 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.

I bought this book before my second child was born because I wanted to learn how to calm and understand my children better. I learned a great deal about interpreting the different types of crying, creating a "routine" rather than a schedule, and how to teach my baby to sleep on her own.

I think it is a great book which teaches parents to respect babies as "little people" from the time they come home from the hospital. I have used techniques from this book for 3 of my children and pass on what I've learned to anyone who asks for advise.
