It was long before I even became a Mom that I read SOTBW...and I thought "Everything in here is *right*."   It was so clear. I KNEW that someday I would be a BWing Mom. It is truly an honor to continue your work, even in any small way.

You know how grateful I feel to you, Tracy....I have whispered it to you a million times..when I had a quiet resting baby, when I had a toddler who *asked* to go to bed, when I figured out a routine based on her cues.  In the past 4 years, I have whispered a thousand thank yous.  And I will keep doing so, I'm sure of it.

My prayer I'm sure is the same as yours would have been...may every baby be whispered to.   :-*

Thank you, my dear friend.  Words are inadequate, but you are a huge part of the reason why my little boy is such a joy.  We will always miss you but hope we make you proud :-*

Coming from a dark home where children were not respected nor listened to I had no role model for being a mother.  I so desperately knew what kind of mother I wanted to be but had no idea of how to get there.  Then by chance DH's client recommended SOBW and I knew this is what I needed to do.

I too have sat quietly with tears in my eyes praying for guidance,  and the guidance came through all of the ladies (and gentlemen) here on this community. 

I never would have thought I would have so much comfort from so many nameless faceless people...but they are all here to help make children's lives better and what better reason to come together.

I too want to thank you for putting your wisdom down on paper.  I fear for what my children's lives would have been like if I did not find these answers.  I am not sure that my 2 babes 12mo and 5days apart would be as happy as they are now if I did not have all of help from everyone here.

There are not enough Thank Yous to say...my life is eternally changed and there are going to be 2 better people in this world bc of what I learned here.

Remembering all of your caring work today.

Your first book SOTBW guided me through my first child, and now with my second I understand even more what you mean about respect and listening, and doing what will work for your unique baby within my unique family.

Both my children smile and laugh for different reasons - spirited Jacob and angel Megan - thankyou for helping me see the great in both of them  :-* :-*.

Rest well, Tracy, in the knowledge and comfort that your legacy has been so many hundreds of thousands of contented and attended to babies - and new parents who feel they have a compass by which to guide them. From myself and on behalf of all of those babies, thank you.

thank you for helping me to see that I did not need to let my baby CIO or bring him into bed with me to get him and us the rest we needed and as a result thank you for the amazing bond we now have. xx

Tracy,
From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your wisdom, I thank you for the wonderful community of mums and dads who have absolutely changed my life.. I thank you for the smile on my sons face now that his reflux is controlled and I thank you for the days and nights when he can now sleep peacefully and pain free. 
You have profoundly influenced my life and the mother that I want to be.
Rest in peace.
xx

I thank you again, Tracy, for everything you taught me about these beautiful boys of mine. Thank you for this website and these wonderful women who work everyday to continue your work.

I am so thankful that I had the chance to chat with you so many years ago.

Sleep well.

Thank you, Tracy.  I still may not always get it right, but at least I have the confidence and framework to do it in!

Thank you Tracy for writing SOTBW.  Without that book I would not be here today with a smiley happy toddler.  I am forever grateful for your wisdom.

Rest in peace.  I hope that we as a community can continue to pass on your methods to many many more families.
