Is your baby or toddler really a bad sleeper, or is it just that no one has taught him/her how to sleep? Are you worried about whether your baby or toddler is getting enough to eat? When your baby or toddler wakes in the middle of the night, do you know whether it's hunger or habit? Are you confused about how and when to start solids and what foods to offer? Can you tell whether your child's meltdown is really a form of manipulation? Are you wondering and worrying about when to start toilet training? Have you tried baby-whispering techniques but decided that they didn't work for your child? If you're struggling with these and other questions, you're not alone. Thousands of parents have asked the Baby Whisperer to help them solve their problems. This book takes you inside Tracy's head, teaching you how to analyze troubling issues, offering you strategies for correcting problems, and-perhaps most important-showing you how to make them work for your child. In these pages, you'll learn how to: * Avoid, or remedy, accidental parenting-inadvertent adult behavior that often leads to some of the most common parenting problems: waking in the middle of the night, improper and inefficient feeds, separation anxiety, tantrums. * Diagnose your baby or toddler's sleeping problems by using the six troubleshooting variables-related and sometimes intertwined factors that impact sleep patterns during the first three months and can continue to affect a baby's or toddler's sleep habits. * Be a P.C. parent-patient and conscious-who knows how to detect prime times-windows of opportunity for sleep training, introducing bottles in breast-fed babies, sippy cups, toilet training, and much more. * Inhibit runaway emotions before your child loses control and, from the days of early infancy, foster your child's emotional fitness-his ability to understand his emotions and manage them, a skill that, with your help, develops over time. * Ask the twelve essential questions that help parents analyze a problem, and employ the twelve principles of problem solving-everyday guidelines that help in any and all situations.Hogg, Tracy is the author of 'Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems Beyond The Basics From Infancy Through Toddlerhood', published 2005 under ISBN 9780743488938 and ISBN 0743488938.
