I just bought Tracey's book yesterday... accidentally. I went to the store to get one someone had recommended as I am missing heaps of cues for my 4 month old daughter Rhiannon. I had, on Monday, went to a day stay at a hospital that taught "controlled settling" which seems just like controlled crying to me. I can't STAND that method & wanting something that felt more natural. Anyway, I knew deep down there was something between that & total attached parenting method. At first I thought "Why the HECK, did I buy this book  based on the cover?"... then I read it & I was amazed! She said things I had thought were true before I gave birth but couldn't trust myself!!!!

I am in a not so good situation & am making plans to leave & the more I read the more I thought... I HAVE to talk to Tracy, she has to help me get my darling angel & myself back into a healthy routine. Then... I see that she passed away, TWO years ago... I couldn't help but burst into tears. I almost felt as if my own mother had died all over again. I don't know why or how but just things she said about her Nana & the way she "talked" in the book, I could almost hear her Pomey accent  :). I can almost feel your pain for her loss & I am deeply sorry. I would say it gets easier but I think...we just get a higher tolerance for the pain. Maybe Tracey is still around & now able to "whisper" & guide mother's who need help by sending us to the book & to this site. I hope you can still feel her love for she seems to have been an amazing woman & I am beyond words for your loss.

What a joyous thing that some how your beautiful mother goes on touching lives after life & bringing joy to so many people still. I think I am babbling but, I just hope you can get the spirit hugs from my words & know I have a good understanding of your loss & I am amazed that I can feel so strongly about a women I have never met or spoke to. I wish you all the best. It may sound odd but if you ever need to share about the loss, my Mother was taken from us 14 years ago now when I was 21 so I can be a good ear for that kind of thing. Enjoy your memories & her legacy.

May the Great Spirit & Earth Mother bless you & yours always,
May the Great Spirit & Earth Mother bless you & yours

Ditto... this sight gives so much support and really aids us mothers who second guess ourselves and question our methods/motives    ::) ::)
