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 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.

This book was lent to me soon after the birth of my daughter after having discarded another well known baby "bible" in disgust!! It appealed to me in that it advocacted a relationship of trust between the baby and parents (rather than one of control and abandonment) in that you help your baby with the things he or she may struggle with as a newborn by not leaving them to cry and providing a gentle routine with support and reassurance.

My daughter didn't fit into the EASY routine and after a few horrible days I gave up trying as it was causing both of us misery. I can see Tracy's point but the fact is newborns are total individuals and each ones sleep and feed needs differ according to the weather, rate of growth and other mysterious factors.

What I found unneccessary and demeaning is all the condecending and patronising references to "accidental parenting". Many sleep deprived and anxious new parents use age old ways of getting their baby to sleep (feeding, rocking) because they and the baby need some peace!! It's very negative and damaging to a new Mums self-esteem to say that if she resorts to these methods the child will NEVER be able to fall asleep on their own etc.!! This is nonsense! Having said that my husband and I employed the shush pat technique as we both vehemently disagree with controlled crying and it began to work really well, but after 2 months not 2 weeks as the book claims!! Eevntually through this method our daughter learnt to fall asleep and stay asleep on her own with no cruel methods such as "crying it out" alone in her cot. Now at 8 months old she goes down awake and drifts off to sleep peacefully for all her naps whereever we happen to be. I found tips such as these sensible, kind and helpful.

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.

I found "The Baby Whisperer" invaluable when I had my first child, so was pleased to find this when I was looking for help with a sleeping issue that didn't seem to cover. It goes into more issues in much greater depth and really gets you more into thinking about what it is your child is trying to communicate. It does feel a little rushed in parts, but sadly this is due to Tracey Hogg suffering from a terminal illness. She is a childcare expert who will be sorely missed - not many have her balanced view of looking after both child *and* parent mixed with a huge dollop of common sense.
You may not agree 100% with all her recommendations, but you are bound to find something useful or thought provoking here.
