Thank You Tracey. I uttered your name so many times as if you were a friend who had past on great advice. Months later I learned of your passing and was taken back at how you have lived on through your books.
Thank you your words and for giving me the confidence to be a great mom. X

Thank you Tracy for teaching us how to listen to, respect and understand our babies and children. I am thankful every day that I found you and your teachings, and because of them along with your tools I have been able to be the mother I am. I now know to trust my instincts and be confident in the way I parent. For that I am forever grateful. If it was not for you, we would not have this wonderful resource to share and learn from each other as BWing mums.

RIP x

Thank you Tracy for giving us tools that allow our families to function. Thank you for giving us a middle ground and for inspiring so many parents that this fantastic website still thrives so many years after your passing.

Thank you for giving me hope, when I first read your book, that there was a way to help my child sleep that didn't have to break my heart.

Bless you, Tracy, because you certainly blessed my family. X

Thank you Tracy, to have given us your inspiration and knowledge to listen, understand and grow our little ones, while we try to prepare them and to give them the tools to make their life the best we can. And thank you to have saved me from one of the most though period of my life, when I found the first weeks of my baby the most overwhelming of my entire life, and I was really not prepared for that. You gave me the hope that I could put some order in my life as a new mum and start to take things in my hands instead of living in the total chaos of early days. Your books and this site are still the most important references for me to decide how to handle the challenges that I encounter in motherhood.

Thank you for giving me the skills, patience, confidence and tenacity to love and nurture my baby boy - even through some incredibly tough times - by believing in a way to understand him properly. I couldn't have done it without you. So many times I have wished you could be here to help us, but what an incredible legacy and following you have. This site is testament to that. RIP - you're a very special lady xx

Tracy I first saw your TV show and loved how you understood and connected with babies and parents alike. I read your book when I was pregnant first time and vowed to follow your advice.

I have got lost a number of times on my ventures through parenthood and wished I could ask for your help. But you left a legacy of like minded parents around the planet, through which you live on and are loved.

I have forged new friendships thanks to you.

You are an icon to parents.

Thank you. xxx

Tracy,
Thank you for leaving your wisdom for us in the books you wrote.  Thank you for starting the forums so long ago.
Without these forums, I do not know where my little DS2 would be as it was your words from BWSAYP that clued me into him probably having reflux. 
I thank you for teaching me about night terrors so I could walk my DS1 through those dark nights as he processed the issues of DS2's reflux.

But mostly I thank you for giving me functional tools that I can use on a daily basis with my children (and with others in my life) to find a middle ground of respect, of forethought and starting as I mean to go on, so that I can parent in a way that my children are left feeling empowered and loved.

DH & I thank you often for your gifts and your generosity.
Raising my cuppa to you luv
Rest in peace dear lady.

Just wanted to say thank you. I am a mom of 2 under 2 years and have been reading and trying to follow the BW Solves all Your Problems. I just checked out the forum today to get help with my 4mo and had no idea Tracy was no longer with us. I send my gratitude to her family. You all should be so proud as she was quite obviously an amazing woman who continues to make a difference in many people's lives.
Best wishes.

You have been my best friend through the tough initial weeks and months of becoming a mother and my little boy is much happier for that.  I can't thank you enough and now buy your book for all friends and relatives the minute they announce their pregnancy - your success lives on xx
