thogg.jpgTracy Hogg, a British-born nurse who cared for more than 5,000 children, was called the “baby whisperer.” Using a compassionate touch and a few kind words, Hogg could calm any cranky baby. Her years of training and positive attitude soothed the fears of anxious parents as well.
The bestselling author of the 2001 book “Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect and Communicate With Your Baby,” Hogg often used acronyms to teach the basics of raising children. For example, she instructed parents on how to create a daily schedule with the word “EASY” (Eating, Activity and Sleeping for the baby; the Y stands for “time for You”). She encouraged families to communicate with their infants in adult language and to treat each child like a little person.
Hogg’s services were highly prized by Hollywood parents. Several celebrities, including Cindy Crawford, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael J. Fox, Calista Flockhart, Jodie Foster and Marilu Henner, paid $200/hour for a telephone consultation, and $1,000/day for live-in support.
Although she was born into a large Yorkshire family, Hogg was raised by her grandparents. Her grandfather, the head nurse at a mental institution, took Hogg to the children’s ward when she was only 7 years old. After seeing how well she related to the children, he encouraged her to pursue a career in nursing. At 18, Hogg followed his advice and became a registered nurse, nanny and midwife. She also trained in hypnotherapy and specialized in helping children with learning disabilities and physical handicaps.
When Hogg moved to California in 1992, she took some flak for leaving her two young daughters in England to be raised by their grandmother. She defended her actions by saying they deserved the special care her extended family provided. The girls eventually joined their mother and stepfather in America.
Hogg later opened Baby Technique, a baby equipment store in Encino, Calif., and co-wrote two more books with journalist Melinda Blau. “Secrets of the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers” was published in 2002; “The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems” will be released in January. She also hosted the TV program “The Baby Whisperer” on the Discovery Health channel.
Hogg died on Nov. 25 of melanoma. She was 44.

    Tracy was a truly remarkable woman and I loved watching her programmes on Discovery Health TV. I was shocked and saddened to learn of her early death: what a waste of her inborn talent of caring for babies, toddlers and their parents!

  7. Lia Nascimento

    I am from Brazil and never missed her show on Discovery channel. Although I do not have kids, I learned a lot from her not only how to care for a baby, but how to do so with love and teach him/her limits since they are very little.
    She had a gift from God.
    God bless you, Tracy and give strength to your family. Rest in Peace.

  13. Patricia

    I watched an episode of ‘Baby Whisperer’ on Discovery Health today after a long time of not watching much television and was shocked that the end titles said ‘Dedicated to the Memory of Tracy Hogg’. Thought it was a mistake and went online to confirm, but I am still shocked. Though I never met her I followed her advice with my son and was touched by how she helped people on her program. God Bless and may you Rest in Peace.

  14. karen

    So sad to hear that Tracey had passed away.
    Gone too soon, but she had helped so many families in her short time on earth and for that we are all so greatful for.
    Rest in Peace Tracey and give a kiss to all the babies in heaven.

  19. Ri Leedham

    I have never met, nor read Tracey’s books, but have been watching her programme on the Discovery Channel. My Son is now almost 15, but I wish I’d have known of her when he was born. The Baby Whisperer has become my favourite programme to watch whilst I am ill. I was shocked to see, at the end of a recent programme, that it was dedicated to her, and have come on line to check. I feel saddened. To have touched so many people, even ones she has never met, or who have recently come to know of her, is a tremendous gift. I said to my Husband, before I knew of her death, that she was someone I would have loved to have as a friend. She was a natural beauty, both inside and out. Tears come to my eyes as I type. Rest Gently, Tracey. Beauty, Love & Gentleness, Always xxx

  20. Julia Gilvear

    I was very saddened when watching a recent episode of The Baby Whisperer when the end titles came up that said “In Memory of Tracey Hogg”. I learn’t such a lot from watching Tracey on Discovery Health and she certainly was an inspiration to all new mums. May God look after you. Julia (Bristol)

  21. Mandy

    Its the way she smiles that won my heart. I am new to Tracey Hogg, and her Baby Whispering. I felt so excited when I found her, to give me advice and support, and I feel equally saddened at the loss. Whilst referring to her books daily, i can hear her Yorkshire accent in my head. She is making my life with my 6 month old so much more enjoyable. God Bless.

  22. Kelly-Lee Russel, Preston UK

    I am due to give birth to my first baby in 3 weeks time and have found watching Discovery Health an inspiration. Especially “The Baby Whisper”, what a fantastic lady!! I too was greatly shocked and saddened when I saw a recent programme was dedicated to her memory. It was only when I came on the internet that I learnt of her tragic death.
    She was a wonderful person and a very talented lady, such a waste of a young life.
    I have ordered Tracy’s new book and will look forward to continue to learn from her even though she is no longer with us.
    Condolences & thoughts to her family!!

  23. camille

    watching the programme on tv this morning was shocked to see a tribute to tracy in the titles. After finding this sight it is obvious that she was so highly thought of by everybody who had ever come across her fantastic work. What a sad loss, but i hope her family and friends can find some comfort in the fact that she made a difference and will still carry on doing so whilst the series is aired and the books on the shelves. x camille,hull

  24. stella

    I too was shocked when I watched the programme on tv this morning to see a tribute to tracy in the titles. I really think her ideas and methods are outstanding – she will be sorely missed by mums and new mums to be.

  25. tracey hinton

    I have just watched yet another fantastic episode of baby whisperer and at the end it said in memory of tracy hogg………how shocked and saddened am i. I have not got small children, mine are 15 and 19 but i still watched in awe of this woman who knew the answer to everything and helped so many parents of young children.
    May you rest in peace and you will always be remembered by your cheery smile and happy personality.

  26. Beverley

    I watched the ‘baby whisperer’ before I was even pregnant with my baby boy Jack who is now 10 months! I also have her book. I have followed much of her guidance with Jack and have therefore been blessed with an angel baby. She had such wisdom and the world will be a sadder place without her. Her legacy will continue on through not only the programme and her books but also through the mothers who have taken her advice and can pass this on to other new mothers. God bless you.

  27. Nicola

    I was shocked to see the tribute to Tracey in the titles on the baby whisperer, I came on line to check, what a tragic death.
    She was such an inspiration to all mothers, she will be missed.

  29. Julia Baynes

    Though my son is now 30, I watch the Baby Whisperer just to see the warmth and special talent of |Tracy Hogg. How I wish I had had her advice when my son was a baby. As an ex-nurse myself who also trained in Leeds, I felt a special connection when watching and though |I realised Tracy looked very ill on the programme, I was saddened to see that she had passed away. A special lady. God bless you and hold you in his arms.

  30. Chazel

    I always watch ‘Baby Whisperer’ although my children are now grown up, and was shocked to see the mention ‘In memory of …’. Thanks to Tracy I may just be able to help if asked for advice with any future grandchildren I may have. I am always fascinated by the way she solved every problem she was asked to help with. How sad that she died so young.

    So sad to learn of Tracy’s death.
    Her knowledge will continue to be passed on through her TV programmes and books that she wrote.
    What a loss to all the mothers in the world who were helped by her in a lot of ways!
    Her family should be proud she had such an affect on people all around the world.

    only realise that tracey had passed over when watched her tv show today and finally got to see the end, her voice was so calming , her nature so natural , god must of wanted his angel back for himself but in her memory the babys whisper will live on rest in peace tracey

  38. Nikki

    Having just watched an episode I was shocked to see the dedication to her memory. Tracey was an angel, a teacher, an inspiration, having guided countless parents with issues, giving practicle advice easily carried out. It is such a sadness that a wonderful person has been taken so suddenly and far too early.
    Tracey’s legacy remains through her books and tv programmes and her caring demeanour will live on in her own children.
    My thoughts are with her family, who will hopefully read all these messages and find comfort amongst them.

  39. Claire Underwood

    I have like so many of you just watched an episode of the Baby Whisperer and saw the tribute to Tracy. I too rushed upstairs to my pc to see what I could find out. I am so shocked and saddened. I watched her programmes and read her books and tried many of the things she believed in with my own children. They always worked! Tracy was a remarkable woman and although I never knew her I will never forget her. May you rest in peace.

  41. Deanne

    Tracy, your book has made me the mom I am today and without it I dont know what I would have done. Was very sad to hear of your untimley passing after watching your amazing programme on Discovery Health today. Could not believe it so came online to see if I could find out more. My thoughts are with your family. May you rest in peace. There are thousands of moms who would have been lost without your inspiration. Love Deanne and Freya (12 months).xxxx

  42. Jean

    As with many of the tributes on this site I was truly shocked whilst watching a recent episode I saw the dedication at the end. My children are all in the 30/40s now but how I wish I had had the help then that she has given so many. She has helped more in her 44 years than most people can ever hope to help in a full life time.
    Rest in peace Tracy your legacy will live on, sincere condolences to your family and friends.

  43. Amanda

    My deepest sympathy’s to all of Tracy’s family, she was a very caring lady and helped me through some tough times’ nothing seemed so bad after Tracy had reassured me. She is now in a better place and can rest in knowing that what she done whilst on this Earth was all so unselfish , caring and so incredibly kind, she hepled many…

  44. Paula

    I was also truly shocked when watching the dedication to Tracey, truly an inspiration to understanding the thoughts and feelings of our young children. And as expressed by others she was a pro and is and always will be irreplaceable…

  45. Beverlea

    I was terribly saddened at the news of Tracey’s
    death. A wonderful person, so calm and so caring. Although my children are now grown I have watched Tracey’s programme on the Discovery Channel with awe. May she ever rest in peace.

  46. Helen

    I was shocked when recently watching an edition of the Baby Whisperer to learn that the programe was dedicated to the memory of Tracey.
    I have found her programmes a great help since the birth of my daughter in August 2004.
    May she rest in peace.

  47. karren

    I was addicted to the Baby Whisperer programme on Discovery Health when I was pregnant and didn’t know she had passed until today. My son is 5 months old now and I am glad I had a chance to see an extraordinary woman at work.
    Such a shame someone so young and talented has gone from this earth. She will be missed.

  48. Zandra

    I have your three books Tracy. I read your first book twice during my pregnancy. As you defined it in your book – I have a mix between a textbook and angel baby. I love your advise. Your common sense approach to understanding babies have helped me and my husband to understand our daughter since the day she was born! Thank you Tracy for writing your books and sharing your wisdom with us. You will always be with us in our hearts. My deepest sympathy to all of Tracy’s family and friends. Love – Zandra, Tommy and Bella

  49. Antonia

    Tracy – I cannot thank you enough for all you have done – not only for me, but for parents and babies all over the world. My little Amelie Grace is doing so well thanks to your books and programmes. My heart goes out to your family and friends. May you rest in peace.

    Dear Family of Tracy
    Our deep condolences on the passing away of a person so dear and close to you. Although I never knew her personally, Tracy’s attitude and help through her books have given me strength, courage and enthusiasm for taking the challenge of bringing up two little children, despite all hurdles. I sincerely hope and pray that her memory and goodness and the knowledge that she has helped so many parents so wonderfully will bring you solace and strength for these difficult time in your lives.
    God bless Tracy and you always.

    Tracey Hogg was an incredible woman an angel on earth, she helped me to understand and listen to my baby and I am ever thankful for her advice. It is such a shame she had to leave this earth at such a young age, I can’t believe her passing hasn’t been made more public! I don’t think people realise just how many lives she has touched, she was and is a saint.

    Gracias por tus libros y tus programas, por ser alguien excepcional que nos aport

  60. Karen J Tunnell

    I am so shocked to read that Tracy has sadly passed away. Its tragic that she was taken away so very young. Her books and tv programmes have helped and inspired me to learn and understand the art to parenting, especially at times when I was desperate, exhausted and tearful. Tracys advice works and I can still hear her mantra’s ringing in my ears.I am sure her techniques and programmes will still be adopted by many people in years to come.
    Thank you Tracy, may you rest in peace.

    thanks !

  64. Kelly Browne

    Tracy:
    Words cannot describe the depth of emotion I felt when I heard you had gone home… I was devastated. I wanted to let Sarah know how much we appreciated everything you taught us and the confidence you gave us. I didn’t think that someone like you would ever leave us so quickly. It is strange to me that with my new baby, I can’t pick up the phone and call you. You changed many lives here and helped many babies communicate with thier parents in a way no one else has. And the book, well, I am so very very proud you surpassed your wildest expectations. I want your family to know you will be forever in our hearts for many generations to come. Till we meet again…say hello to Diana.
    Our love and most sincere thanks…

  65. Chantil

    Just learnt of your passing today. I am saddened. Did not know much about you. I bought your book today. You were very committed and knowledgeable.A loss indeed to me as first time parent.
    Good night Tracey!!
    God bless your family.

    I have only just heard the tragic news about Tracy’s passing – I am shocked and saddened. She was a wonderful gifted woman, I only wish I had her advice when my children (now 21 and 18!) were babies.

    Have only just heard the tragic news and can’t believe it. Felt like Tracy was a friend, she really helped me navigate my way through the first few months of my baby Oliver’s life, such a comfort when I felt very alone. She will be sorely missed, a true, one-of-a-kind talent. Deepest sympathy to all her family,

    My Baby is due in August, and I have already bought her book and video. She was truely a remarkable woman, and it saddens me to know she is no longer here, but her good work will continue through her books. Her techniques were so simple yet so effective, she truely listened to both the parent and the child. I send my love and respect to her family in this very sad time. Sarah and Bump xxxxxxxxxx

  70. Alison

    Just as others have mentioned before – it was the tribute at the end of the Baby Whisperer credits that made me go online to find out what had happened. So sorry to hear the sad news. So thankfull for all her marvellous advice and warmth. Our thoughts are with her loved ones.

  71. rachael

    i was shocked to hear of tracys death on the telly i always watched her programms an was saddened to learn what had happened! she seemed a lovely person who helped so many people! i know tracy will b remembered always! hats off to her! ! !

  72. Eliza

    Have just watched the end of a Baby Whisperer episode, and so sad to hear the news that Tracy is no longer with us. What a sad waste, but what a fabulous gift we have been left with in Tracy’s books and on Discovery Health. At least the babies up there have someone to sort them out, so it won’t be so noisy when it’s our turn.
    I have suffered the loss of a parent. My thoughts are with Tracy’s daughters.

  73. Michelle

    Tracy,
    I have watched The Baby Whisperer for years even though I have no children (yet). Your advice is so simple, yet so inspirational. You truely were sent from god, a true angel. I was deeply shocked to see the tribute at the end of the show today. You will be missed dearly. You will live on forever in the heart of all those you have helped and will continue to help though your books and TV show.
    Rest in peace

    Was shocked to see one particular programme ending with the words “In memory of Tracy Hogg”. I paused for one moment and said a short prayer for her. Her book, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, was the most valuable tool for my husband and myself when raising our first born baby daughter. I followed most of her tips in that book, and lent it to several friends. Now, I am using her other book about toddlers. I also used to, and still do, watch her tv programme religously. Our condolonces to her family!

  75. Tracy Harding

    Absolutely shocked and stunned after I saw an episode of “The Baby Whisperer” this morning ending in the those immortal words “In memory of Tracy Hogg”. She is and will continue to be an inspiration to all parents who want to see light at the end of that very dark parenting tunnel

  76. Sally Cripps

    So sad to hear of Tracy’s passing, only today, as I watched one her programmes. I have watched her programmes before and passed on her teaching to my granddaughter who has a son of 20 months. She has taken Tracy’s words of wisdom on board and George is a well adjusted, well behaved little boy and a joy to look after. Thank you Tracy for sharing your experience, I wish I’d had you around when my children were young. Good night, God Bless xx

  77. Heather Heartfield

    I can hardly believe this news is true. I have 10 month old twins and would not have survived this first year were it not for Tracy’s books. I kept them beside my nursing chair and referred to them daily for advice. I feel as though I’ve lost a friend even though we had never met. If her family reads this I just want to thank you for sharing Tracy with the world, I continue to recommend her books to every pregnant woman I meet. Her methods are truly magic and her philosophy of respect is paramount in creating wonderful family relationships. She continues to be a blessing to each life she touches.

    Tracey, your book has given my son, Zak, a start in life that will ensure that he is confident, secure and content. In this respect you have truly changed his life for the better, and mine too as a new mum. I never met you, but like millions of others I owe you a great deal. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Rest in peace, Baby Whisperer.

  79. Julie Hardie

    I went online tonight to find a website for the Baby Whisperer, as I have become a keen follower of the TV programme, only to read the really sad news that Tracy had passed away. I just can’t believe it.
    I agree with all the other tributes – Tracy you will be deeply missed. Your knowledge and ability to help people is inspirational. Writing this I can’t stop myself from crying as I remember watching your programmes and always walking away feeling wiser and more confident. Thank you for helping so many people around the world and for touching our lives and our childrens lives in such a special way.
    Rest in peace xxx

  87. amirah D.

    I just read about Tracy’s death on her website. I am utterly shocked. I feel like I lost a friend and that’s only from reading her books. I never saw her on T.V, but i hope to be able to see the series she had running on discovery. I plan to become a child consultant following the baby whisperer philosophy. God bless you Tracy and thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!!

  88. heloisa allegro baptista

    Tracy,
    I read your books and watched the TV show at Discovery everyday. You are an amazing and special woman who dedicated your hole life translating what the little ones can

  89. nicki

    I just watched Tracy’s show on the discovery channel and i’m only 16, but i thought she was a lovely, caring woman. It shocked me to hear of her death. Love and best wishes to all her family
    Rest In peace, and make sure the babies in heaven behave!

  90. Bobby

    I have never met, nor read Tracey’s books, I’m due next month and have been watching her programme on the Discovery Channel.
    At the end of the programme today ~ it was dedicated to her… I had to come on line, to pay my respects.
    Tracy has touched so many people, even those of us she has never met, with such a tremendous gift I’m sure she is in heaven taking care of some angel babies right now – to be taken so young is a tragedy.
    Thoughts and prayers go to her family.

  91. tracey

    I have only just found out about Tracys death and like other new mums have found her programs on discovery health an absolute godsend,as a mum to a 4 year old boy,and a 2 year old girl we have been using most of her “methods” for both of them.
    May I pass on my wishes to all she left behind,she was a light at the end of the tunnel to most parents with trying children.
    Godbless.

  92. Mandy Buxton

    just watched the baby Whisperer and saw the in memory of. Went online and found out she died in November. Im totally shocked she was a wonderfully talented person what terrible shame

  93. Alexandra

    Like most people here only found out today about Tracy’s passing after watching Baby whisperer…As a new mum of a beautiful baby girl of almost 5 months will miss you sorely. Some things in the programmes helped me alot!!!

  94. Amanda Gibson

    I can’t believe it has been so long since I have watched Discovery Health. I am unable to digest the fact that the most wonderful person in the world has died. I want a baby but have serious doubts in my childcaring ability and watching Tracy has helped me to decide that I want to be a parent. All of Tracy’s shows have something that I’m sure evry parent can relate to. I am saddend that this light has been extinguished.

  95. i knight

    i am so sorry to hear of tracy’s death (via her TV show). I cant believe it. I have a five month old son and her book has been a great inspiration to us. Our son is happy and we are confident parents as a result of her book. What a terrible loss to parents of today and tomorrow. My thoughts go out to her family.

  96. Paula Sillett

    Like many others I saw the tribute to Tracey at the end of the Baby Whisperer programme and was so shocked to hear of her passing.

The world is a sadder place without her, may her guidance long continue despite this loss xxx

    After having my son, now 18 months old, I was addicted to the Baby Whisperer programme on Discovery Health and through Tracy’s fantastic advice, tips and wonderful help, I was able to calm my baby with gastro-reflux and able to diagnose his umbilical hernia. Ive only found out today that Tracy passed away and Im shocked.

    I have watched alot of Tracy’s baby whisperer programme’s on discovery health & found each one really helpful. As a mum to a 3yr old & an 18wk old baby she has given so many tips & advice. At the end of one of the programme’s i noticed that it said ‘in memory of Tracy Hogg’, i did’nt even know that she had died until i came to have a look on this website. Rest in peace. x

All I can say is that she used her amazing gift to the best of its ability in her short time, giving peace of mind and happiness to families all over the world. Through her programmes and books she will continue to do this and never be forgotten.
    Tracy, may you rest in peace with all the peace with all the angels in heaven, there is nowhere you deserve to be more.
    God bless you.

    Thank you Tracy for sharing your wisdom and your insight into the needs of our children. Your advice helped me with my first son Justin. We used the Pick up Put down method with great success and stuck to the EASY routine which really allowed me to understand my childs needs, removing the guess work. I got to know Justin and his cues. I am applying the same priciples with my second son Kristian who is four months old. I am so sad you have left this world so young, you had so much to give and what you gave will never be forgotten.

    thanks to traceys advice u have my 14month old sleeping though the night from when i started to watch her show i was also pregnant with my daughter now aged 9 weeks

  127. Heather

    Tracy, I miss you dearly. I had the pleasure of reading your first book in 2001, just after its release. I read it and read it over again, and still do. I was so thrilled when an email I sent to your site was answered by you and you drew me up a plan to wean my baby from his pacifier at 5 months. Months later as I struggled with transitioning him from two naps to one, you not only answered my email, you called me on the phone. Your lovely tone, and beautiful spirit helped me to not only feel like I was doing a great job, but gave me the confidence to move forward with a little piece of you with me.
    I gave birth 12 weeks ago to another boy and immediately went to the site to start to connect to other BW moms. It was then that I learned of your passing. How saddened and lost I felt to learn that you were no longer with us. Now and again, as I sit by my baby’s crib at night settling him to sleep, or after a hard day with our routine, I often wonder if you can see me there by the crib, and if you could please send me the answers. I feel so lost sometimes and wish we still had you with us and to guide us. I didn’t think I would cry typing this out, but there I go…
    Tracy, I miss you. Your family was blessed to have you, and we were all so much better off for knowing you. You touched me and my family, and I wish you eternal peace, wherever you are.
    Please look down on me once and a while, especially when times are tough – I still need you, and miss you.
    Heather from Toronto.

  128. Nicole Wijngaarden

    Wow,
    I am stunned!!! May you rest in peace. Thank you for having helped my friends, my family and myself with your talents. It is wonderful to be able to pick up your book when I am struggling to find an answer. I just told my sister to look up your website as she was having some issues with her baby. When I had a look to update my own skills I saw a small mention that you had passed away. I am trully sorry for your daughters and your husband and all your family and all those struggling parents out there. Thank you again for all the help you have given my family. Best, Nicole

    Tracey,
    I met you through an amazon search nearly a year after you had passed away, yet at this very moment you are helping my wife and I raise our son. He is 4 months old now and we have been using your methods from day 1. We have still got so very far to go and I, like so many others, will be calling on you every now and again to help us out of yet another new and confusing situation.
    Thank you Tracey, you have passed but will always be with us.

  166. Emma Herrero

    Tracy,
    Although is some time since you have passed away I would like to express how sad I am at learning these news.
    I have learnt and I am still learning from you so many things, and you have given me the strength and confidence a mother needs sometimes.
    I feel very sorry for all your dear family, which is a little ours, as we know it from your books.
    Descansa en paz, nunca te olvidaremos.

  167. Rebecca

    Having watched the baby whisperer for some time now and taking on board all the fantastic knowledge Tracey offererd I like so many others was shocked to see at the end of yesterdays episode that the show was dedicated in her memory and came to check online. An intelligent caring and compassionate woman who didn’t have the put on airs and graces that some presenters on tv have. You will be sadly missed.

  168. Joey

    Omg!! I Cannot Belive This Woman Is Dead!! I Am In Total Shock! She Truly Was An Amazing Example! Of Sheer Parenthood!! My Thoughts Are With Her Family At This Difficult Time!

  169. Donna Castellano

    I used Tracey’s books with my son and now with my newborn daughter and only recently heard the news of her death. I truely believe it is a tragedy that this woman has died. I don’t think there is words to describe how important her wisdom and experience can be for teaching new mothers how to care for their children. I will forever recommend her books and her teachings to my friends and family. If only pediatricians would read them too! Thank you Tracey!!!

    I had my baby June 9, 2005. When he was having trouble sleeping and I was totally exhausted, I went to a bookstore looking for answers and found her book. I tried to follow her advice as closely as I could. My son is now a year. When he has difficulty eating, sleeping etc., I always go back and read the suggestions that she gave in the book. I just happened to put her name looking for her second book and saw a small print saying that she had passed away. I researched more and realized it was the same year and month that my own mother passed away. Her words of wisdom have helped me sooooooooo much, since I didn’t have a mother to turn to for help. I loved her gentle approach of picking up a baby when they were crying and then putting it down when they stopped. It works. I’m just not the kind of mom that could walk away from a crying baby. I saw in the other tributes that many got to know her by watching her on the Discovery Channel. Does anyone know if they have her programs on dvd or video? Can they be bought? Tracy you will truly be missed by many. I thank you for all of your wonderful advice and your caring spirit. I am a good mom because of you.

    Before giving birth to my son, Connor, on 14 March 2006, I was introduced to Tracy’s Baby Whisperer book by my sister. This was an invaluable source of advice and information to me in those early (sleep-deprived) days! I then stumbled across the Baby Whisperer programme on the Discovery Channel and, like many other people, was shocked to see the “in memoriam” dedication at the end of one of the episodes. What another needless waste of a wonderful life.
    Having lost my father suddenly and tragically last year, I am now firmly of the opinion that only the good die young and this definitely also applies to Tracy.
    I’m sure she will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know her but her legacy will undoubtedly live on.

    PS – everybody should try the “dream feed” recommended by Tracy – we have been doing it for the last week and Connor (along with mummy and daddy!!) is happily sleeping right through the night…. Miraculous!

  172. Claudia Bevacqua

    I was so stunned to learn that Tracy has passed away. I couldn’t believe such a wonderful human being had left us all. I was pregnant when I stumbled on her show on Discovery, and I inmediately loved them all. She made me a better mom with my son and my husband and I always remember her. Our hearts go out to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.
    Claudia, Daniel and Ignacio.

  173. Amy Winters

    I have no words for what this woman did for me and my daughter. I read her 1st book did what it said and my baby was sleeping through the night at 4 weeks. My daughter and I went through alot of changes when she was 4 months, I got a divorce, we moved in with my mom and step-dad. Two months later my step-dad died and a month after that my mom moved. It was a very hard times for us and I clinged to my daughter and did some really bad accidental parenting. She would sleep with me and get up at least two times a night. Then at 13 months I bought THE BABY WHISPERER SOLVES ALL YOUR PROBLEMS I did exactly what it said even though I was not real sure if it would work, after 2 days my daughter was falling asleep on her own in her crib for 11 hours a night. Tracy helped me when I screwed up and my daughter was already over a year old. My heart goes out to her family! I hope they realize she was an angel sent by God and i will never forget what she did for me.

  174. kimbo

    one gentle lady touched so many lives. like so many others it felt like tracey was my friend. i descovered baby whisperer between number two and three kiddies. i love them all but how much easier number 3 has been because of tracey. thank you and god bless.

  175. Mui Hong

    I was having problems with my 9 mth old baby waking up hourly to be nursed and a online friend introduce me to Tracy’s book and I used her PU/PD method and it really worked. I was saddened to discover that she has passed away in 2004. Her advice and suggestions has been extremely useful and now i learn to question to find a solution to the problem I had with my baby. Thanks Tracy for sharing all your knowledge, views and methods.

    I came online hoping to contact Tracy to thank her. My 15-week-old boy is currently swaddled up and sleeping peacefully in his cot, which wouldn’t have been possible 2 weeks ago. I’m so sorry to hear she’s gone, but I know her legacy will live on and change the lives of many more families. Thank you, Tracy.

  177. Lynne Groom

    I am so saddened that you are not with us anymore. I watch your programmes on discovery Health all of the time and have found them really helpful with both my children. You were such a loving and talented person and we will miss you.

    I did not even know you had passed away when I got my first born daughter and started looking for advice in raicing her and found the baby whisperer…Even after your death you have a strong influence on peoples lives with children. Thank you a lot and may all the little angels in heaven enjoy your guidance!
    I feel like the best mother and I trust myself as a parent completely because of you!

    i never met tracy nor seen her program on TV, but i read her work. its really effective. if tracy were alive, i would have asked for her advice. but for what its worth, i am very very thankful to God for her. may God bless and watch her family while she’s gone.

  182. Pamela Myles

    I ahve just seen the tribute after the programme today, in disbelief I went on the internet. I have followed nearly all the Baby Whisperer programmes, all have helped me tremendously. I have passed on tips to family and friends and have also used what I have learned with some of my patients who have learning difficulties. Thanks so much Tracy – you will always be remembered.
    To Tracy’s family – your loved one has left a legacy and will never be forgotton.

  183. Michelle Smith

    I’ve been a devotee of Tracy’s for a couple of years now, I love her website and read her books even before I was pregnant. I can’t believe I have just discovered today that Tracy passed away in 2004. She has made such a difference to so many families, it is such a loss that she is no longer with us.

  184. sandra

    ho saputo da poco che tracy non c’è piu…e sono molto dispiaciuta era una persona molto dolce e mi ha aiutato molto seguire le sue puntate di BABY SOLVER ora che ho una bimba seguo molti suoi consigli …GRAZIE!!! Riposa in pace!!

  185. Melissa peachey

    I wish i could have the patience and knowlege to get my 1 year old son to sleep at night. I cant belive such a young talanted lady, who has helped so many people has passed away.

  186. Melissa, York

    I was stunned and saddened to hear of tracy’s death, she was so kind and caring and helped so many, i watched her programme religously when my son was younger and always found her a great help! Best wishes to the family. May you rest in peace x x x

  187. Anne

    I, like many people on here was just watching the programme and at the end the notice came up “In memory of Tracy Hogg” thought i must have been dreaming so googled her name and found out its true and its 3 years ago!How sad. She was so young and had so much to give. Im a single mother of one and she thought me so much. Her book is fantastic. RIP. Anne in Dublin x

  188. louanne evans

    I can´t belive!! she is now a beautiful angel, i read her book and She has made such a difference in my new mom-work with my first baby in 2003, now i´m pregned and her book is my bible.
    GRACIAS POR AYUDARNOS EN LA TAREA MAS DIFICIL DE NUESTRAS VIDAS!!! GOOD BLESS YOU TRACY!!

  190. Angela Symonds

    I refered to Tracy’s first book like a bible when I had my first son (2003) and followed through on all her teaching points with my second son in 2004.
    I used to adore watching her on Discovery Health and it was only when I was telling a friend and new mum how wonderful she is that the friend told me of Tracy’s passing.
    Deeply sadened by the news my only comfort is that she is looking after all the baby’s in heaven. Taken too soon . RIP

  191. Nina

    As soon as i told my friend that i was pregnant in late 2004, she lent me her ‘Baby Whisperer’ book, she absolutely swore by it, and as my pregnancy progressed i read the book from cover to cover. Her EASY routine worked like magic on my daughter, she started sleeping through the night from 6 weeks old. To think i read a book and watched a programme not knowing she had passed away even before i found i was pregnant shocked me. She’s was a very insperational woman, her ideas will live on through the next generation of children because i will show my daughter when she becomes a mother the routine that started her life.

  192. LISA MATTHEWS

    IN DESPERATION I BOUGHT TRACEYS BOOK TWO DAYS AGO. IT HAS BEEN MY BIBLE EVER SINCE AND HAS COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED MY FOUR MONTH OLD SON, RYAN. HE HAS GONE FROM A WHINGING BABY TO AN ADORABLE LITTLE MAN WHO THRIVES ON ROUTINE AND A WHOLE NIGHT SLEEP! THANK YOU TRACEY-YOUR GUIDANCE WILL STAY WITH ME FOREVER XXX
    PARENTS SO OFTEN SAY WE ARE NOT GIVEN A HANDBOOK TO REAR CHILDREN-DEAREST TRACEY YOU’VE GIVEN US JUST THAT X

  193. lisa Amantea

    I was so saddened to learn that Tracy died.
    I bought her first 2 books whilr I was pregnant
    via IVF with my daughter Angelica(who was born
    12/23/05). I started reading the 1st book 1 month
    before her arrival. My baby was on a schedule right from the beginning of her life with the help of Tracy. Although she was colic, the book also helped Mommy and Daddy deal with that as well. Now Angelica is an inquisitive toddler and I’m now reading the Toddler book. So far so good.
    REST IN PEACE YOU are life saver for all new parents and little ones.
    Lisa, Danny, Angelica

  194. Steve Mckie

    What a sad event her passing is. Having read “The baby Whisperer” today for the first time and found the baby calming techniques to work wonderfully I came online to see what this marvelous women would be producing next. How saddened I was to see she has passed away and can no longer bring her obvious skills to the world. How thankful I am though that I have a reason to be saddened – her works will benefit my daughter and when I pass the book to her, will continue to benefit my decedents in the years to come

  195. Chandra & Padma

    Today only I know that you physically left this world, but your legacy of baby whisperer is not a secret anymore, it spread across the world forever.
    You are in the hands & minds of parents as “Baby Whisperer” forever.
    You made our son to sleep, eat well. We are very well communicating with him after we read your books.
    Still I am stunned & saddened about your demise.
    Rest in peace.

  196. annette london

    l have just watched your programme and cant believe you have died. l had to check on line. so sad. this page must bring so much comfort to your family knowing how much you helped families and their children .lm just very shocked god bless.

  197. Elise Leighton

    I discovered you Tracey whilst pregnant with my seccond daughter last year. This time around I wanted to enjoy being a mum as I did with my first but without some of the stresses that went along with it. I had a particularly bad pregnancy and spent almost 8 months in bed. Although that was very hard, it did give me the chance to watch your programme and gain the most effective and reassuring advice I have ever been given with regard to my children. I have two beautiful confident daughters who eat, sleep, communicate, interact and love the way every child should. Getting my children to this point has been a stress free pleasure. Thank you Tracey.
    Eternally grateful,

  199. fiona Kieran

    I am in total shock! as a mother of three small children Nathan 3, Dylan 19mths and Layla 19wks, I have and is still raising my childrens on the EASY routine. Tracys advice and easy going approach to babies enables me to truely enjoy motherhood because I can REALLY understand my babies. I an’t Believe this wonderful women has been taken in the prime of her life.
    You are and will continue to be an inspiration! and your book will be a present to any new mother I know for many years to come.
    Never forgotten.

  200. Amelia's Mom

    It is with tears in my eyes that I have to say, after reading your book, and finding such comfort in your natural adivce, it feels like a personal friend passed away. Your advice and EASY routine, was the difference for me. I could start enjoying my baby because i understood his needs. May the work you started live on through your company, books, programmes and website. Be blessed, and may you have a wonderfull time with God.

  202. Michelle

    Dear Tracy,
    it is 2008 and my own beautiful Angelique is 6 weeks old tomorrow.
    She is a very lucky girl because I first learned of you and read your book in 2003 when I gave it to my sister, so essentially I have been gearing up to give my girl a Baby Whisperer Start for 5 years … which she got from her first breath and is responding incredibly. Thankyou Tracy.
    It is only now however, in 2008, that I click on to your website to assess some growth spurt issues with my baby, that I find that your time here with us on earth has ended.
    I am so sad about this … indeed I can see there is a whole world of parent’s that are sad. Your memory will forever live on here on earth and may you enjoy all the Angelic care offered to you in heaven. You were truly an Angel of Care to many here on earth .. and my Angelique gets to reap all the heavenly benefits of your hard work.
    Thankyou,
    Michelle xxx

    je viens d’apprendre le décés de tracy, et je suis extremement choqué et peiné, elle m’a tellement appris. c’était une femme remarquable avec un don merveilleux et comme toutes les personnes exceptionnelles elles sont rappelées à Dieu plus vite.
    Je ne vous oublierai jamais et mon petit garçon aussi.

  207. Tracy macdonald

    I have seen the programme today for the first time and i thought wow she is amazing. I went onto her website only to see comments about her passing, what a loss,but a least people can still learn from her as i have. R I P

  208. Aliza S.

    Life was difficult for us during the first month of my baby boy, but then my husband brought home Tracy’s book, which i eagerly read during pumping time and applied it to my son. he is much calmer, i am much more confident and the whole family is happier. thank you Tracy. you are a real, unbelievable gift to the world.

  209. Beverly

    What a terrible loss to the world but what an amazing legacy. I am simply lost for words and filled with sadness. Tracey made the world a better place with her unique gift.

  210. leigh

    Thank you Tracy for all your wisdom.
    I was a young mum at 18 and I believe your book has helped make me a confident parent, and your easy routine made my son a happy, healthy baby. Now after just having my second baby, it is again your book, my bible, that I am referring to.
    The Baby Whisperer legacy will live on as I, and I’m sure many other mothers will be passing it on to their children and so on.
    Rest in peace Tracy. I will never forget you and what magic you worked for me and my family.

  211. Caroline

    May God always keep you safe in heaven, and touch you with the love you have touched all of our lives with. You will always be the “key” in my life as a mother, for it was you who blessed all of our children, you were an angel and may you rest so peacefully knowing you were and always will be a legend of love and knowledge of children, All of the sad passings of little children into heaven will be safe and loved in your careful watch. God bless you and your family.

  212. Aimee R.

    Tracy, you continue to touch and improve lives each and every day. Thank you for sharing your gifts. Your books have made such a tremendous difference for me, my husband, and our son. May you rest in peace.

  214. Claire and Holly

    Just to say i watched the baby whisperer today and went on-line to find out more information on Tracy, sad to hear that she has passed away, she has given me some hope that i can get into some kind of routine with my baby girl.

  215. Victoria Scott

    I am so sad to learn of Tracys early passing. She was a wondeful woman an inspiration. I started watching her program in 2004 when I had my first daughter and have only just learned that we lost her. She`ll live on in a lot of parents memories. God bless sleep tight

Thank You from the bottom of mine and the womens heart that WE help. I am watching your programme right now.

  221. Ami

    All the thoughts and techniques she brought sooth us, when becoming first-time parents means full of doubts. Still I can not believe when I first open her book, it’s been nearly 5 years after her pass-away. We know Tracy is now resting peacefully with baby sweet dreams….We remember you and treasure your work….Taige, Dad and Mom

  222. Jean Kayne

    I only found out today that Tracy had died. What a shock!! My daughter has just found out she is pregnant and I have been singing Tracy’s praises to her. My son who is 29 years old was such a handful when he was younger and I know if I had had Tracy’s advice back then that raising him would have been alot easier and I have total faith in her. Thank goodness for her books and programmes! Still can’t believe it. Our loss is heavens gain. RIP Tracy xxx
