Tracy was a lifesaver when I absolutely needed one. I was a first-time mom who’d just returned to work while my exclusively breastfed 3-month-old Baby stayed home with Papa. She hated bottles, missed me dearly, and just wasn’t sleeping well without me so I’d get home to a crying, screaming, fussing, overtired, exhausted, beautiful child. It was such a difficult time.
I searched the web for weeks looking for help, guidance, anything to help us through this. Sadly, finding someone who I felt I could trust – someone who I felt would really listen and hear me and not just force their pre-packaged, one-size-fits-all baby sleep formula down my throat – seemed impossible. But the situation wouldn’t resolve itself and my baby’s sleep continued deteriorating so I kept searching…and searching…and searching.
Finding Tracy was a blessing, a miracle, and an answer to all my prayers, my meditations, and my heart-wrenching pleas as I sobbed new mom tears trying to figure out life and sleep and conscious, respectful parenting. My phone call with her was beyond illuminating. I felt buoyed by her knowledge. Her kindness and understanding were a balm for my sleep-deprived soul. The work she does, the insight she offers, is beyond invaluable. She was a friend when I needed one. She lifted me up and empowered me and helped me put our once-fracturing little family back together.
And she really, really cares.
Her website continues to be my go-to for parenting advice and information, and hers is the first website I recommend to every new mom I meet. If you were lucky enough to find her website, give yourself the gift of subscribing to her newsletter, liking her Facebook page, and consulting with her when you need a little guidance. We all need a tribe. She is a cherished member of mine.
