“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.

Tracy Hogg obtained her nursing degree in England, specializing in maternity and neonatal care. Her uncanny ability to understand and calm babies led to her nickname "The Baby Whisperer." In 1997, she founded Baby Technique, through which she consults with parents individually, organizes and teaches group classes, and provides nanny training and referrals. She is the mother of two daughters. Tracy Hogg died of melanoma in November 2004.

  • Great advice for any parent, first-time or not!

    This book is very informational about almost every subject you can think of for raising children without a hassle. She talks about sleeping through the night, how to take baths and get dressed and eat without battles. All the while she talks in this british language that I think is hilarious. All in all, I think this book is entertaining with plenty of experiences to keep you entertained instead of just boring you with what to do facts. Very full of useful information and highly recommended.

    This book offers some pretty interesting information on how to read your infant's body language. That was the most interesting thing I took away from the book. As a first time parent, I'm so concerned when my baby cries and the author suggests slowing down to look at what the cry is actually saying (hungry, tired, gas pain, etc). It may have taken me much longer to figure out without having read this book.

  • A wonderful resource! This book educates you about your babies' cues, helping you to meet their needs more quickly, building trust and contentment in your children as eventually they will believe that their needs will be met when they need it. This book definately helped me to recognize what my babies were telling me about their needs. Having not been around babies much until I had one, this book helped me to "schedule" my life around their needs which made all of our lives easier and calmer. My boys as a result seemed to be happier (according to all the reports!) more content and they didn't cry all that much. I believe a lot is due to the things I learned in the book.

  • Being a new mom, I loved this book. First got it from the library and after reading it, I just had to buy it. It just makes sense, and has many helpful tools and charts inside. Looking forward to continued use with my 6 month old and God-willing, some future babies in our family! Go buy it! You won't be sorry!

  • Some interesting suggestions, however I do not agree on many things the author writes. Babies are babies and putting them on an 'boot' schedule so that they can 'fit' in our busy lives is a totally wrong concept. May be following mother's instict and heart would do better to them, rather than thrive to their independence when just born.
