From the title, I really expected this book to bit a bit vague - well, nothing could be further from the truth! This is down-to-earth, and refreshingly unpatronising.
Clear guidance is given on how to best approach the difficult situations we all find ourselves in ... and the descriptions of the main 'types' of children was enlightening - I have a 'spirited' child, who displays all the characteristics mentioned in the book, and was almost despairing of being able to get through to him!
I only wish I'd seen the first book when my son was a baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars First class once again... 8 Dec 2007
By LittleReader VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read TH's first book about baby whispering and following her E.A.S.Y style of parenting, I was anticipating a treat with this book and am pleased to say, I was not disappointed.
Juggling a (spirited) toddler and work, as all working mums will recognise, is no mean feat and I was feeling a little at the end of my tether in terms of what I was supposed to do in terms of boundaries and discipline (those cute little teeth sinking into my hand in frustration were beginning to wear me down...). I didn't want to be a pain in the ass to my little soldier but all my methods weren't working - I tried everything from ignoring the bad behaviour to getting cross and raising my voice to distraction and nothing was working! I didnt want my precious time with my son to feel like a battlefield and was finding it all very upsetting... Step in Tracy Hogg...
The brilliance of her theories and what stands her head and shoulders above the rest (especially the awful Gina Ford) is that she teaches you to teach yourself. She encourages you to take a step back, see the situation objectively and deal with it in a calm and controlled manner. She takes everything into account - the childs age, temperament, needs and personality as well as you're needs and temperament which can go some way into explaining why you have a particular situation on your hands in the first place!
Wonderfully accessible with easy to understand dialogue and ideas, this book (life saver) comes highly reccommended...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous wisdom and very helpful guides 17 Mar 2009
I stumbled on Tracy Hogg's first book The Baby Whisperer when my son was 6mths old. It helped me enormously as she really tunes into babies and their individuality. I love Tracy Hogg's baby-friendly approach rather than the harsh alternative offered by Gina Ford.
This book offers sound advice and has been very useful at the different stages of toddlerhood.
I cannot recommend the books enough - her advice really does work and I certainly saw the benefits within the times she specified. Some of the actions take commitment and perseverence but so so worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Whisperer Fan 6 Nov 2009
As a mum you will fall into three catergories:
- A Gina Ford mummy
- A Go-with-it mummy
- A Baby Whisperer mummy
I have two kids, a 2 year old and 7 month old and I have had both these books in the bathroom for crucial, quiet reading when I get 5 minutes. Listen to what your child is telling you and get a form of routine in place which can be workable and flexibile. Tracey helps show you the signs and behaviours and tells you how to act and what to say. All this enables you to be a Mum to your child depending on who they are as an individual. So no more robotic Mum manual, this is a guide to help two individuals work together. Hope you get some sleep!

5.0 out of 5 stars The sleep advice saved our lives 13 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Our 10-month-old used to wake up at least twice every night, although most nights it would be five times or more. We were at our wits' end. I got this book and went straight to the sleep chapter, which described a problem almost exactly like the one we had - baby couldn't fall asleep without the bottle/breast in her mouth. The parents in the book took months to cure their child's sleep problem, but since our problem was so severe, and we were so desperate, we decided to make the commitment and follow the advice. It took three nights of the putting down/picking up method, and our baby (now 12 months) has been sleeping through since. Much of the rest of the book I didn't find interesting, but I give it five stars for improving my quality of life a million times!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave it too late 21 Oct 2005
I was disappointed with this book. When my daughter was born, I was recommended the Baby Whisperer for babies and really found it helpful and informative.
When my daughter reached 'toodlerhood' I went straight out to buy the Baby Whisperer for toddlers. I felt it was too late. My daughter was already two and Tracey Hogg only deals with very young toddlers ie: from the first steps (9mths+) so most of the book wasn't of any help at all.
I do think the title is misleading - I would class a child as a toddler from 18mths on as before then, to me, they are still babies!!!
If you got this book early enough then it would be of use and help, just don't leave it too late!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful book 17 Oct 2005
I was recommended Gina Ford when I was pregnant however I found GF to be too regimental. The Baby Whisperer is brilliant, it offers advice on eating, activity, sleeping, and your time in other words the EASY system. It works but allows you to keep the flexibility you sometimes need. Even if you slip away from the EASY system you can easily pick it up again with no problems. A lot of it is simple logic which you occasionally need reminding of. I definately recommend both baby and toddler whisperer.
