Format: Paperback
I got this book when my son was 8 weeks old. He'd started sleeping through and then started waking up again once or twice during the night. As my daughter at 3 still isn't sleeping particularly well I was keen not to make the same mistakes again.
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.

This book was very helpful in getting your baby into a routine and helping the parent to see where they sometimes go wrong without even realising it!
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.

This book is an absolute god send to any parents, both new and those who have done it before. I was a little sceptical about a baby whisper, but my fears were soon dispatched as were my sleepless nights and my sense of failure in motherhood. This book does not wave a magic wand and make everything A OK, what it does is allow you to understand what your baby is trying to tell you. I can't recommend this book enough, it just makes having a baby a pleasure rather than a trial.

Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic. I didn't need a book with my first baby and was shocked when I struggled so much with my second. I thought because I'd been there & done it all before I knew it all but baby Floren is a very different little bundle of joy to her big sister. Having read the book I am still dumfounded as to how I could have got it all so very wrong when its just common sense as to what was wrong with my always crying, always feeding, never sleeping baby.

Tracey has saved me, she made me realise what we were doing wrong (which was basically over feeding & under sleeping her)and within 2 weeks we had a different baby. I did, however, find that borrowing my friends "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" book and reading that alongside helped somewhat as this book is a follow on book and I felt that some of the basics were skimmed over just a bit too much.

It is quite a big book & seems rather daunting at first bit you can easily pick out the bits you need & save the rest for when you need it

This book was a sanity saver for me as a new mum and a second timer. I have recommended it to a number of friends who also found it invaluable. As a new parent you have no idea how stranded you can feel - Tracey provides a wealth of reassuring knowledge and the one thing that babies don't come with - a manual. Buy it. It will be the best money you ever spend for your whole family.

I bought this book a coupld of weeks ago when my son was 4 months old. Until that point I had been going with my instincts, feeding on demand and not following any particular routine. Until my son was about 10 weeks old this worked fine. He is a very easy going baby and just worked himself into his own little routine. He was sleeping for six or seven hours at a time at night. Then at around 10 weeks he started falling asleep earlier at night, from this point onwards things got more and more difficult. He started waking up every few hours at night to feed. In the day he was grumpy and grizzled all the time. He was feeding little and often throughout the day and wouldn't nap for longer than about 30 mins.

I went to my health visitor every other week asking her what I could do and she suggested various things like dream feeding and not letting him go to sleep when he's feeding, but nothing seemed to work. I instinctively knew that he needed a routine, but had no idea how to go about getting him into one. I read the Gina Ford book and ran a mile because it seemed so rigid and knew straight away that I wouldn't be able to stick to a routine that was that strict (although I do know some people who swear by it).

I bought the baby whisperer book on impulse. I was at the end of my tether and the idea of having all my problems solved was very appealing! As soon as I started reading it I knew that it would be right for us. The routine makes perfect sense and immediately I realised where I had been going wrong. I had been expecting my baby who is 4 months old to know how to structure his day. There are a lot of adults who don't know that, so how on earth would a tiny baby know. Suddenly everything that was so baffling to me seemed completely manageable.
