Thank you, Tracy, for helping me be the mum I am today - not perfect, by any account - but more respectful of my child and someone who takes the time to understand who he is, without an agenda. Thank you for being the best gift I can give to my fellow mums out there who are feeling lost.
♥ Kim

Thank you Tracy  :-*

I felt like no one but me understood the complicated little bundle that I brought into this world...then I read your book.  Somehow, without ever having met, you "got" us.  For that I am forever grateful.

As always, thank you Tracy. Without your books, your knowledge, the community you built. I would simply not be the mum I am today. :-*

Tracy, as always I so overwhelmingly grateful to you for the description of a reflux in BWSAYP that allowed me to go and get DS2 diagnosed with Reflux. 
I also thank you for the international friendships I have made and for the skills and understanding of why and how to approach a multitude of different parenting challenges.
Rest in peace lovely lady.

Thank you Tracy for helping us bring up our kids to be at one with themselves, a part of you will always in a way live in them, its as if you were their nanny at hand, showing them and us the way of enlightenment with the sometimes difficult task of being a parent.You are in our thoughts.

Thank you Tracy for helping me understand my daughter better and for giving a not-so-natural mom a sense of accomplishment each and every time I'm successful at reading my baby's cues.  My thoughts are with your family, especially during this holiday season.

It's hard to believe that nine years have passed.  Tracy was an extraordinary person, gift with babies and toddlers, incredibly compassionate, especially to mums, as she called them, and a friend I'll never regret.  Days before she died, she asked me to finish "the family book," and I have a feeling she knows I did  May she rest in peace and stay in our hearts forever.  Hers was a truly unique and inspirational voice.
Mother, grandmother, journalist, and woman of the world--interested in people and relationships.
I carry on in Tracy's footsteps, taking "baby whispering" into the next decade after toddlerhood, in our fourth book, "Family Whispering."

I used TBW when I nannied and at first when I started the book, I thought it was crazy to routinize a baby.  I finished the book in a day and had that baby girl trained up so quick, the parents would text me for sleeping tips and I would say "it's all in the book you made me read!"

Now that I have my own DS...

The night I found out Tracy had passed so long ago, I was lying on the floor of my DS' nursery, he was 6 weeks, waking every 15 minutes, crying, I was crying and I went online to find Tracy's phone number in England because I was going to call her and wake her up and beg for help.

What a horrible moment it was to learn she was no longer walking the Earth, a woman who was clearly a Godsent Angel.

Since then, I have made my DH and my mom read the book so we could all work together and utilize her expertise.  No other book has offered the amount of help she did and I am so thankful for this forum, I can't believe I'm joining after my baby is five months old!!!

Thank you for continuing this.  Reading her letters was an honor.
