“Start as you mean to go on.”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“It takes patience and a calm environment. It takes strength and stamina. It takes respect and kindness. It takes responsibility and discipline. It takes attention and keen observation. It takes time and practice—a lot of doing it wrong before you get it right. And it takes listening to your own intuition. Notice how often”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“To calm the Touchy baby, you have to re-create the womb. Swaddle him tightly, snuggle him into your shoulder, whisper a rhythmic sh … sh … sh sound (like the splashing of fluid in the womb) close to his ear, and pat his back gently, mimicking a heartbeat. (This, by the way, will calm most babies, but it works especially well with a Touchy baby.) When you have a Touchy baby, the quicker you learn his cues and his cries, the simpler life is. These babies love structure and predictability—no hidden surprises, thank you.”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“Every baby is a person who has language, feelings, and a unique personality—and, therefore, deserves respect.”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“I just can’t get over how much babies cry. I really had no idea what I was getting into. To tell you the truth, I thought it would be more like getting a cat. —Anne Lamott in Operating Instructions”

“one must walk a fine line between responding and rescuing. A baby whose parents respond becomes a secure child who’s not afraid to venture forth. A baby whose parents continually rescue begins to doubt his own capabilities and never develops the strength and skills he needs to explore his world or to feel comfortable in it.”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“In any case, when a woman doesn’t want to breastfeed, we need to support her and we need to stop heaping on the guilt. We also have to stop using the word commitment only in connection with breastfeeding. Any kind of feeding regimen takes commitment.”
Tracy Hogg, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby
“Some mums with flat nipples will even end up with “T-shirt nipples” after nursing. Though her breasts will change again once the woman stops nursing, they’ll never go back to what they were before. Small-breasted women who breastfeed longer than a year can become flat as pancakes; large-breasted women may experience sagging. Therefore, if a woman is concerned about her body image, it might not be best for her to breastfeed. She’s likely to hear that she’s “selfish” for making such a decision, but who are we to make her feel guilty and wrong?”
