New York Times bestselling author Tracy Hogg, now in a new role as "Ms. Fixit," takes us beyond the basics presented in her first two successful Baby Whisperer books. In this latest book, Hogg shares her experience in the trenches, responding to questions she has been asked repeatedly by thousands of parents who have sought her out for private consultations, flocked to her book signings, and contacted her via her website (babywhisperer.com). Here she focuses her renowned baby-whispering energies on solving the most common difficulties -- including feeding issues, sleep troubles, and behavior problems -- and puts together a comprehensive package of specific and targeted strategies. In addition to explaining her most effective approaches in greater depth and detail, Hogg introduces a wealth of new baby-whispering concepts in these pages. She teaches parents of babies and toddlers how to catch everyday difficulties before they become chronic, as well as how to solve deeply entrenched problems. As such, The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems lives up to its promise, providing a compendium of surprising and deceptively simple trouble-shooting techniques and practical remedies. For Tracy's fans, this book will be a welcome addition to the Hogg library; for readers unfamiliar with her philosophy of care, it will open a new world of understanding and insight. It is a must-have for all parents of young children, a guidebook to read from cover to cover, a resource to keep on the nightstand.

Healthy newborns follow a comfortable pattern. They're up two or three times a night for food and comfort, but you expect these nocturnal disturbances with a new baby. But at three or four months of age, everything changes. Your baby now wakes at all hours of the night, and exhaustion and frustration become the norm. The good news is you haven't done anything wrong. Your baby's new sleep pattern (or lack thereof) is a biological response known as the four-month regression. Infant sleep experts Meg Casano, BSN, MA, and Erin Flynn-Evans, PhD, MPH, provide the knowledge and strategies you need to get through the four-month regression and reestablish restful sleep patterns. Unlike many misleading and uninformed sleep "experts," Flynn-Evans and Casano base their advice on sound scientific principles so that you can act with confidence. You'll discover how to spot early signs of the four-month regression, how to prevent it if possible, and how to resolve the issue if not. Doing so provides you with realistic expectations of your child's nighttime sleeping patterns and helps you guide your baby back to a healthy, restful nighttime routine.

Conventional wisdom tells parents that they should delay potty training to toddler age, and only after seeing signs of readiness. But is that really the best way? In Diaper-Free Before 3, Dr. Jill Lekovic presents the new case that early training--beginning as early as nine months olds--is most natural, healthy, and beneficial for your child, based on medical evidence. By incoporating the potty into your child's routine early on, toilet training becomes far less stressful for both parent and child. Dr. Lekovic's method, which she has used successfully with her own kids and recommends to patients, helps children become better aware of their body's signals, boosts confidence, and decreases the risk of urinary health problems. The guide includes informative chapters on bedwetting, accidents, and adapting the method for day care, special-needs children, and older toddlers. Offering a technique that really works and turns toilet training into a positive experience, Diaper-Free Before 3 is sure to become a new parenting classic.

You're sleep-deprived, in ways you never imagined. Putting one baby to sleep is hard enough, but now you have two to contend with. Two babies who wake up at random times throughout the night. Two babies whose pacifiers fall out and need to be put back in a million times. Two babies you need to rock, nurse, or hold to get them to fall back asleep several times every night. No wonder you're tired. And I can relate: my twins kept my husband and me up at nights, disrupting everyone's sleep. Rocking or nursing to sleep was exhausting. I knew this wasn't a sustainable pattern to continue, and I looked forward to the day when I could finally help them fall asleep on their own. I had an older son whom I sleep trained when he was a baby, but I needed a system that worked specifically with twins. I was dealing with two babies with different patterns and sleeping aids. And so I modified the sleep training method I had used for my singleton to accommodate twins. After just a week, both boys were sleeping 12 hours straight (from 7pm to 7am) without waking up once. I wrote a blog post about the process, to the delight of many twin parents. Several responded with success stories after using my methods. Others had more questions. After answering many of them, I knew I had more to say than what could fit in a single blog post. I wrote and wrote until I answered their questions and addressed different scenarios... and then compiled it all into this guide. I don't know about you, but I had some serious doubts about sleep training twins. I didn't know if it would work, especially since my twins had gotten so used to rocking and nursing. They also woke up several times a night to nurse. I couldn't imagine how they'd sleep through the night without waking up once. And they were supposed to share a room not just with each other, but with their big brother as well. Sleep training seemed all but impossible. Thankfully it all worked out. I wrote How to Sleep Train Twins so your twins can sleep through the night. No fluff, no extra stuff, just the exact steps and information you need. My goal is to help you truly enjoy parenthood. It's pretty hard to do that when you're sleep deprived. What you'll learn: The step-by-step process of sleep training twins: Confused with all the sleep training books you've read? How to Sleep Train Twins guides you through the exact process, even with twins in the same room. How to wean from night feedings: Learn how to gradually reduce and drop night feedings. Your twins will learn to consume their calories during the day and sleep through the night. Sleep training for naps: Learn the techniques to sleep train your twins for naps. You'll get the when, where, and how of doing it successfully. The tools you'll need: Successful sleep training relies on preparation. I'll show you the items you'll need to make sure sleep training goes smoothly. You'll also get a printable sleep tracker to record your progress. An invitation to a private Facebook group all about twins: You're not alone! You can ask me and other twin parents questions about sleep training or life with twins in general."
