In this groundbreaking book, Tracy Hogg does for parents and infants what Deborah Tannen has done for couples: teaches them to communicate. In her career as a registered nurse, midwife, and nanny, Tracy has cared for thousands of babies, and in Secrets of the Baby Whisperer she uses her vast experience to demystify infancy. Working with award-winning journalist Melinda Blau, Tracy blends her clinical expertise with the latest scientific findings in infant research, showing parents how to identify their own parenting style as well as their infant’s unique temperament. The text is filled with heartwarming field notes and realistic strategies, such as Tracy’s EASY program, which gives babies the feeling of security they need and lets parents find all-important time for themselves.

For anyone who’s ever been frustrated by a baby’s cry, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer will be an invaluable source of support, advice, and wisdom.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslienorvell | 2/14/2014

    " This book is a little self-centered around this British nanny. She thinks because it's worked for her, it's gospel. I suppose experience is probably the best test, but there's not too much science behind her actions. At the end, I got this feeling like if I didn't hire her specifically, I would be just as screwed up as a parent as her other book characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/28/2014

    " We will see how well her advice works in about three weeks! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meaghan McDermott | 1/26/2014

    " This is so important for new parents to read, but make sure you do it before the baby is 6 months old! Otherwise baby will outgrow many of the strategies. Start the first day you bring him or her home! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica Davis-Hernandez | 1/20/2014

    " It was full of great ideas. The auther describes ways of dealing/raising youe child based on their personalities. I read this a bit late with my first child and with twins I rarely had time to focus on their personallities to effectivly set their schedules. I good resource for parents. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gremlin | 1/7/2014

    " This book is ridiculous "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 1/6/2014

    " I checked this book out from the library because a friend loves the EASY plan (which says infants should eat, have activity, then sleep, in that order). I think the book is pretty useless because babies are all different - just like parents - and reading these instruction manual type books is more frustrating than helpful and likely to make mom feel like she's doing something wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzy Prybell | 12/24/2013

    " It was an easy read and gave some helpful hints (so far in theory). We'll see how helpful they are when I have a screaming newborn and am sleep deprived. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chanae | 12/21/2013

    " I don't agree with all the advice in this book but it did give me some good ideas and helped me recognize when baby was hungry or sleepy etc... when we were still in the new new phase. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristyn | 12/15/2013

    " I think she has some good ideas, but I also think a lot of them are common sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbie | 12/7/2013

    " I leared a lot about different types of babies and about a parenting style in between Ferber and attachment parenting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rina | 12/6/2013

    " Good book on establishing your baby's routine. But keep in mind that every child is different so implement the changes slowly till you get to the schedule that is convenient to both you and your little one. I do not agree with Hogg on breastfeeding though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/27/2013

    " Another one my Mom got me recently. Thanks Mom. A great resource for first time moms, or for parents who need direction to fix bad habits they've developed with their babies or kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Addie144 | 11/26/2013

    " Secret #1: change your last name to Hogg. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 11/18/2013

    " Very down to earth and what she suggests worked for us!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridgid | 9/29/2013

    " Excellent, common sense approach. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 8/18/2013

    " Great for first time parents. Brings balance to some of the hold them all the time or let them cry it out books. Great section on learning how to read a baby's cry and gestures. Practical advice for getting a child on a good feed, wake, sleep, and play schedule. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaci | 5/30/2013

    " An interesting look at how to communicate with your new baby. I only hope it helps me soon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridgette | 1/3/2013

    " she's a little out there, but the author does have some interesting and very helpful information on caring for infants, setting up a routine and caring for yourself as a new mom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 9/29/2012

    " She is a fantastic medium between extreme attachment-style parenting and extreme schedule-following cry-it-out parenting. She presents her theories/ideas in a friendly, warm way (not to mention her cute English accent coming through the text) that is neither pushy nor manipulative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 9/4/2012

    " Sounds nice in theory, like most baby books. The reality isn't the same :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Mortensen | 6/13/2012

    " This book really helped me to understand my babies and their needs. It is excellent in teaching you how to get your baby into a routine that will make both mommy and baby happy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 2/26/2012

    " Very helpful and insightful - especially in the first couple months. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 1/12/2012

    " I really like the tone of this book; it remains to be seen if her advice works, but overall it's an easy read and very encouraging. I agree with her approach to caring for a baby, "family-centered, common sense, structured routine but flexible." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gisella | 11/14/2011

    " Great book for first time moms and repeat moms! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mili Maria | 8/2/2011

    " she is my Mama Diva!!!! the ONLY book u really need to read IF you are pregnant..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Topinka | 7/10/2011

    " I liked the author's nonjudgmental attitude. Obviously, everyone has to do what is right for their baby, but her advice makes sense to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tia | 6/18/2011

    " Tracy Hogg and I don't agree on every point, but this book is absolutely invaluable to me when I have an infant. This book takes the credit for my getting my babies to sleep through the night in a way that worked out well for all of us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenae | 5/31/2011

    " This book was just what I needed as a new mom. It simplified things for me and helped me realize what I needed to do to have a happier baby and therefore a happier me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roslyn | 5/9/2011

    " One of the best books on childcare I have read. Good philosophy that applies not just to babies but to life. Respect each other. Respect yourself. Disagree with her ideas about thumb sucking tough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 4/16/2011

    " This has been the best parenting book I've come across. Her advice is practical, logical, and follows the pattern of the baby all while helping parents find a solid, comfortable routine in which to raise their child. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haylee | 4/15/2011

    " I was a little skeptical simply because of the "whisperer" thing, but this honestly was very helpful and answered a lot of questions that I didn't even know I had! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Risa | 4/14/2011

    " This was a good book that we got pretty late, when we had already solved lots of our problems, but I did like it and I like the description of child temperaments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 3/16/2011

    " I have actually read this book before but have pulled it off my shelf for a review...
    ...Of course, I'm doing it all wrong. "

    " I liked her thoughts on newborn care--she seems right in the middle between the total left of Dr. Sears and total right of Baby Wise. "
