Just the other day, I was remembering when Tracy called me to help me "Get back on Track" after Peyton (then 8 months, now 5 yrs) had RSV and the flu . . . what a selfless, loving, amazing angel God loaned us . . . We have all been blessed!

Tracy, give my momma a hug for me . . .

If it wasn't for Tracy's book, I do not think I would be the mother that I am today. I picked up her book when I was about 8mth pregnant. I thought huh a baby whisperer. It couldn't hurt to read the book and see if the book could help me to set a routine for my baby. To be quite honest, I do not think I would have known what to do once my daughter was born.

Let's just say that I was impressed with what I read. I do not follow her book completely, but it taught me things to look out for and it helped me set up a routine that my family and friends are impressed with.

Tracy is reponsible for turning me into a great mother. My DD is now almost 7mths old and she is what Tracy would call an Angel/Textbook baby. We are very blessed.

Lately, I have been telling all my family and friends who are pregnant to pick up her book. One of my cousins who is pregnant is very impressed with what she has read so far. 

Thank you Tracy !!!!!!!!!!!!

My condolences to your family. They must miss you a great deal.

I, also, am very thankful for the book and this website.  I do not think i could have survived my Touchy ds without it.  I wish i could have known Tracy, but I am very thankful for all that she has left behind.    :)

Everyday, I am so thankful that my sis discovered the Baby whisperer, although Harry was about one and a half when I found the site, she and all of you have made me always want to be the best mum I can be.

Thank you Tracy for everything.

her insights into babies has really helped me to be a better mother for my perfect beautiful.  no other book i've read has helped me more.  i had no idea what to do with a spirited, premature baby.  she helped me.  this website has continued to keep me sane and i also appreciate this resource.

of course, my LO also thanks Tracy a lot for explaining what she needs to a completely clueless mother.

Tracy, thank you for saving countless babies from crying alone in their cribs, thank you for giving us another gentler way.  You have made us all better parents.  You have shown us that our baby tell us what they need, thank you for giving us the tools to interpret what they are saying.  Thank you for showing us how important it is to respect our little people.  Thank you for being you.

You are so missed, so respected and so loved,
Zoey

Thank you so much Tracy. :)

I first found Tracy's programme on the Discovery Health channel when Ellie-May was a small baby. I briefly visited the site when trying to find a way to wean her from her pacifier at 8 months old, and found success in Tracy's pu\pd method.
I then joined the site when Jack was born and without it would not be the mother I am today.

You have helped and touched so many people's lives, what an amazing woman you were. I am so glad this site exists to pass on your methods.

A big thank you to you Tracy.  Your wonderful insights have truly helped me and my DS.  A friend lent me your first book when my DS was 4 months and then went and bought the second.  I wish I had found your books when DS was first born ... well better late than never.

Thank you also to everyone on this website who keeps Tracy's philophies alive and for their help.  It is of great support when you most need it and a wonderful place to chat and share experiences be them joyous, challenging or sad.

Many thanks

i was given the BW books by a former employer.  i joined the site in june 2005, and that is when i learned that tracy had died several months earlier.  i truly felt like i had lost a friend!!  i had relied so much on her words and advice in those early months that i felt like i knew her.

if tracy were here today, i'd thank her for all her wonderful and dedicated work.  she has made such a huge difference in thousands of babies' lives AND mommies' lives.  we are all so grateful.  :)
