“TRACY HOGG HAS GIVEN PARENTS A GREAT GIFT-the ability to develop early insight into their childs temperament.”
-Los Angeles Family
When Tracy Hoggs 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 childs birth. Tracy gave parents what for some amounted to a miracle: the ability to understand their babys 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 babys life-because a happy baby sleeps through the night. Now you too can benefit from Tracys 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 households life easier and happier.
• S.L.O.W.-how to interpret what your baby is trying to tell you (so you dont 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.
• Tracys Three Day Magic-how to change any and all bad habits (yours and the babys) in just three days.
At the heart of Tracys 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.
Exploring many of the themes contained in Dostoevsky's novels, this unique collection of short masterpieces illuminates the author's astonishing depth and current relevance.
