Tracy is helping people even now.  I never heard of her until I saw a documentary in Discovery Channel about two months ago. Then a father was telling me about difficulties with his month old baby that sounded to me like reflux, and I mentioned to him the baby whisperer and what I had seen in the documentary, some advice was immediately helpful so I looked for this page and passed him the link.

She is not with us physically, but she is very much with us in every other way and still helps parents...and babies.

Sara...I hope it helps you to know that through your mother, I believe my life may have been saved. I went through a horrible case of post-partum depression coupled with anxiety disorder following the birth of my daughter last December. If I'm being honest, there were times when I lost the desire to live. This site and the women on it were a lifeline for me, and helped me through the darkest, scariest experience of my life. The love, friendship and safety that exists here is astounding, and I know that your mother is smiling at all of us and our babies. I pray that grief moves through you gently, and that the love of your Mom keeps you going. I hope that it gives you peace to know that the legacy of your Mom has not only guided countless women and families, but also perhaps saved lives.
 My best to you and yours....and all of my gratitude to your dear Mother.

Thanks for sharing that - it means a lot to us all that we are helping to keep Tracy's work alive in a way that she would have been proud of.

Your mother touched my life and my babies lives in ways I never would have imagined.  Your mother was a God-send to us. 

When I discovered your mother's passing, I mourned like she was my own family.  In a way, I am still mourning her loss.

She will always be in my heart.

Tracy really was an amazing woman that we should all admire. I discovered her last book about a month ago, not realising how much it meant to her to finish it before she passed away until I read about her on this site, so it means even more.

I also want to say how grateful I am for this website so keep up the good work.

Tracy will be in a better place now, probably sush patting the angels she's surrounded by.

Dear Sara and Sophie,

I was so sad to learn that your mom passed away. What a special woman she was and what an incredible impact she has had upon the world.

I am very thankful for her books. She has already helped me so much in these early weeks of parenthood. I am sending much love and positive thoughts to both of you.

I just bought her book and am using it with my little one. I had no idea...her methods seem to be working. I am sad to know she passed away. But, she lives on through her work which is continuing to help tired and confused first mothers such as myself.

    Recently I read her 3rd and last book which I had no idea she had passed away until I came into the website...like many moms here I have been touched by her book which is helping me out with my baby girl. I will use her methods even when I have another baby. Thank you Tracy for the wonderful books and the legacy you left behind. Sara & Sophie you truly were blessed to have Tracy as your mom, I am sorry for your loss as well, but I know you are always happy and touched to hear how she helped all of us along our journey as moms.  :)

Hi, I'm from Mexico. I have a 4 month daughter and I had some problems with her Eating and Sleeping. I wanted to get a routine but wouldn't find one (Iwas going back to work). When I found the book I tried to buy it here in Mexico, but there aren't any books here, so I found the ebook (the 1st one I've bought). I can't believe how much it helped me. I've told my father and husband all what I've found, so now besides me, they're suggesting it to some other parents.
When I knew Tracy wasn´t alive any more, I got very very sad, because she was now so familiar to me. She had become like part of my family, and helped me so much to have a happy baby, but you know? It made sense... I think good people is taken by God very young, because they're just ready to get to Him, and I'm sure she was.

Thank you Tracy and congratulations for your 2 girls for having that kind of a MOTHER.

I have only just joined the forum today and read this post first. My thoughts are with you even though time has passed. I got given your mums book The Baby Whisperer and started reading it the other day when I had no where else to turn with problems I was having with my month old daughter. It has been a rock and if anything it felt like I had someone that understood everything I was going through unlike some health care professionals I have dealt with. I have also started to implement some of the tips and so far so good.

Keep up the good work and just to say your mum lives on...xxxxx

The Baby Whisperer has been a god send.  First with my oldest son, who is now six and now with my newest son who is nine months.  I had not realized that Tracy had passed away until just today when I found this site.  Tracy's words of wisdom have been especially important to me, as I lost my mother when I was only sixteen, and did not have any elders to pass on their "tricks of the trade".  Tracy's knowledge had pulled me up when I was down, gave stability to my boys and helped me understand just exactly who those little ones were - personality and all.  I send thoughts and well wishes to Tracy's family, thank you for keeping her good work alive and available as there are so many new moms who will benefit.  God Bless you and Thank you for all you have done.

Dear Sara and Sophie,

I recently became a mother of twins and came across your mother's book. I read it front to back and thought what an amazing person she is and how great her advise. Then, I tried to contact her through this website and came to know that she had passed. I felt so sad to find that out. I felt her kindness and love and felt I got to know her. I am sure you remember her now with a lot of happiness and the pain of her loss has dissipated with time. Hope you are doing well and I appreciate the opportunity to be part of this website and have questions answered by other parents whose lives were also touched by her loving advise. All the best to you and your families. Maria

I was searching on the web to see how I could send Tracy an email to thank her for all her book did for my family and I came across her obituary.  I started to cry as I couldn't imagine not being able to share our story and thank the lady who made it all possible.  She was taken too early and I just want to pass along that her book saved my sanity and has made my son so much happier and such a great sleeper.  I am passing along her book and links to this site for all my friends who have babies/toddlers who don't sleep!

It's amazing how the ideas and beliefs of one wonderful woman has sparked a method to caring for our babies and an entire community. This community has been my lifeline since becoming a mother and has shared so many lessons that I try to implement every day.
My girls are my world as I'm sure you are to your mother. She has inspired me to be a better mother and tune in to the needs of my children and respect them. This is what sets her apart from every other child raising philosophy I've come across.
Truly an amazing woman, and all around the world babies are happier, and so are their parents due to her great insight.
