We started on this routine at about 7 weeks (baby is now 12 weeks old) and it takes at least two weeks to get the hang of it (for both yourself and your baby). We were doing this routine even before reading the book, but it helped us to realise that we were going along the right track in terms of a routine of eating, sleep and activities for our little one and gave us some idea of how much of all of these things our baby needed.
As with all self-help books, you need to read it with your own baby in mind. You don't follow the book by the letter, but use it as a routine for your baby's needs and this doesn't go by a timetable!
It was definitely the best choice for us as we don't go along with the 'controlled crying' theory.
If you want your child to be able to get to sleep by themselves, both for daytime naps and at nightime, without leaving them to cry, then this is the book for you.
Our little one started out having to be rocked to sleep either in our arms or in the pram. He now goes to sleep in his cot by himself after 10 minutes of cooing and is sleeping from 8pm to 7am with only one night feed (every now and again), and he has slept through the night with no waking three times so far. This may not sound like a big deal, but he's now three months old and we used to be up two or three times in the night for at least thirty minutes at a time for feeds! It has saved us lots of sleep and our sanity!
On the downside, it is a thick book, but just start where your worse problem is (eating/sleeping) and then go back to the beginning and read the whole book to get the bigger picture.
It might not work for every baby/parent but it has definitely helped us!
First time mother of a 3 month old.
I was initially dismayed at the size of the book and wondered where on earth I was going to find the time to read it. But needs must etc and one good thing about this book is that it's very easy to find your problem and solution without having to read the whole book.
Another concern was that I hadn't read Tracy Hogg's first two books and wasn't sure if the "infancy to 3" would mean there wasn't enough information relevant to 8 weeks old. But it's fine and I'm now well on my way to success having implemented the EASY routine from 9 weeks.
I love the ethos of Tracy Hogg. She doesn't believe in leaving babies to cry, says dummies are ok and puts the baby's needs first. I highly recommend this book for any baby from birth to 3.
It contains more detailed information on exactly how to do the Pick Up Put Down method of teaching babies to self-settle and updated guidance on potty training. There is also a chapter detailing how to get an older infant on a routine if you haven't started whispering from birth.
There is also tonnes of troubleshooting advice for all the most common issues parents come up against.
Readers should note that the wonderfully supportive online community that Tracy mentions in the book (at the end of the potty training chapter) has since moved to www.babywhispererforums.com but still exists and is a fabulous companion to the books.
Best baby book, will be recommending to all pregnant friends!!!
With the books' help, I established a routine, and using the 'pick up/ put down' sleep technique taught my daughter to settle herself to sleep. Don't get me wrong, these are no miracle cures, but on the second day, my daughter went to sleep alone in her cot, without being rocked, cuddled or fed, something she has NEVER done. This on just the second day.
The health visitor told me that my daughter was fidgeting during feeding because she was distracted, and I needed to cover her with a muslin cloth (ha ha, she'd have tried to stuff it in her mouth). Through the baby whisperer I learnt I was mistaking hunger for tiredness, and feeding too often. This meant smaller feeds, and so she was waking hungry at night. The first day of the routine, I kept to 4 hourly feeds, and she fed properly, at length and slept all night !!!
I WISH I had found this book earlier. It is a shame that Tracy died in 2004, but she clearly had a gift, and is able to communicate this in her books. I'm going to buy her toddler book next !
