The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems

This post may contain affiliate links.
The next book I am reviewing is The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems by Tracy Hogg (with Melinda Blau).

I am not finished with it yet, but so far I love it. I find it a lot more helpful overall than the first book, especially if you are already familiar with routine information from Babywise. This book has a lot of practical information and she really works to help the reader to become a problem solver.

As with the first book, she is very blunt in her statements and just tells it like it is. I borrowed the book from the library, but enjoy it so much I have ordered it from Amazon so I can always have a copy. I highly recommend this book.

Oh my gosh, I loved this book too. I order this book and Babywise as a gift for all of my new mom friends. Much more detailed than BW, and you need that when you're a first time mom.

Tina said...

I also love this book. Looking forward to getting your take on it as you read through it with your new little one!

I am just now reading this book so I will be very interested to see your take on it as I read it too :)

Andrea said...

Good to know! I almost got it when I bought the first book, but I wanted to wait and see how I liked The Baby Whisperer. I love that one so I will likely be getting this one too!

I really liked this book, too. I feel like her books are a great supplement to the Baby Wise books. Baby Wise is good at giving you the why's of the schedule, etc. & Baby Whisperer gives you the how & LOTS of info about what to do if issues arise.

I love this book. Can't wait to see what you have to say about it!

Melissa,

I agree, it does have great details. It would have been useful four years ago. There are things, though, that I think she is too black and white about which can really throw a mom off. For example, the single side nursing. She says to nurse this way. I stressed about that for some reason with McKenna. In the end, I decided to go with what I knew had worked in the past for my children and that is nursing both sides. Once I relaxed and did that, McKenna grew like a weed! I suppose it is possible it was all coincidental, but I think sometimes ambiguity can be good so the mom will figure things out for her individual situation.

Tina and Rachel, thanks for your input on liking it! Always good to hear what others think.

Plowmanators said...

Amanda, you will have to let me know your take also! I always enjoy your thoughts.

Plowmanators said...

Andrea, I think if you liked the first, you will like this one even better.

Plowmanators said...

Shari, I agree. They are a great supplement to Babywise. She covers a lot of hows.

I have recently gotten this book and absolutely love it. It has such great concrete answers. I'm on the fence about CIO though. She doesn't agree with it and I see her point, but I'm not sure I can do PU/PD either.. I know I need to pick one and be consistent with it, but I'm so torn. I know it's a personal decision, but does anyone have any suggestions for me?
