I have read a few bad reviews of this book, and without a lie, this IS THE FIRST REVIEW I HAVE EVER WRITTEN, I am so passionate about this book, that I choke up, just thinking how my life would have been without it..... After having 2 children on it, my daughter is now 3 1/2 and my son is 10 months, I find it bamboozling how it can get a bad review. I have recommended it to several friends, who, have thanked me over and over and over for the miracle it created in their lives. When my daughter was 3 months old, I was going crazy.. what do I do, when do I do it, how long do I let her sleep etc etc.. .. I wanted to drive away in the car and never come back, that's how insane I was.. I was lost, no where, in a daze.. it was awful. Then a friend of my husbands gave me this book.. then my life turned around.
I know now why some people can't get it.. you need to be tough, in the sense that babies will scream at you when they're not getting their way... but she explains this to you, she identifies a 'protest' from an 'emotion' and how to deal with both.. it just makes sense. Tizzie even interprets their protests into English, which is superb.. because when they are protest crying it gives you the strength and tools to understand what they are saying.. ie (this is my loose memories of how she explains it, and what I used to imagine them saying)... "get back here Mum, you're supposed to be here to pick me up WHEN I SAY SO.. so get back here NOW.. why aren't you here yet... GET BACK HERE!!!"
My daughter from 3 months has slept from 7pm to 7am. It's like clockwork, no effort, went from cot, to bed on her own, never has slept with us, transferred no problems.. but this is all thanks to Tizzie, and her second book for Toddlers. She talks you through exactly what to do, when to do it, and problems that may arise and how to deal with them. Tizzie even explains what temp to have the rooms, how much bedding/sleep wear to put on them.. why do women try and reinvent the wheel as soon as they have a baby (I was one of them, I know.. I was 35 when I had my daughter, and thought I could do it all.. ha,ha, ha).... this woman has made it easy for us..
I could write an entire thesis on the program she has created, I really could.. but be prepared, and be strong.. and in no time at all your children just sleep, exactly when she says they will.. she truly is a whisperer..show more
