|Tracy Hogg, a British-born nurse and best-selling author who was dubbed the "baby whisperer" for her ability to soothe prickly newborns and their anxious parents, died of melanoma Nov. 25 at a hospice in Doncaster, England. She was 44.|
May she RIP. I thought her advice was crap, tho.
|At the heart of Hogg's message was respect for a baby's individuality. Though adults may delight in seeing a naked baby, Hogg said she believed that the baby may react differently. When she bathed babies, she used a washcloth to cover their private parts.|
|In the week before she died, she was covered in towels before being lifted into a warm bath by nurses, an experience that allowed her to feel for the first time as an adult why she took such pains to cover babies with washcloths before bathing them.|
