I try my very hardest to stay out of the T.Hall threads but this one keeps popping up in new posts.
I loathe anything that this UNQUALIFIED woman spews from her mouth. She goes against SIDS recommendations in her pathetic advice on how to "teach" a newborn to sleep. Wrapping the poor little babies in layer upon layer??? No wonder they sleep!!! The probably pass out from dehydration.
I strongly disagree with any CIO method, especially when it's coupled with dangerous advice about over swaddling your baby.
OP, I think your letter is wonderful. I'm so glad that you cottoned on to the fact that the advice is rubbish.

I haven't read the book at all. And some of the stuff sounds horrifically bad - the stuff about babies that vomit.
Having said that - I really don't think it is fair to insinuate that mothers who did the control crying method are somehow heartless child abusers who enjoy the sounds of their baby crying.
Seriously - come on guys - we get it, you don't do it and it worked for you etc. Lets save the spite for awful neglectful parents yeah?
at risk of sounding very silly, can someone give me a brief rundown of the abbreviations used in these forums??
i can guess some of them but wouldn't want to embarrass myself..!!!!
Well, I haven't read the book - so it doesn't apply to me. But I have CC a child, I have 4 and with two of them I held them and cuddled them till they slept, with another he just slept and with the one I CC'd, I had a nanny at the time and she insisted. I was a wreck and just went along with it. I dont' think I would have been able to do it if she wasn't there telling me not to go to him etc. But at the end of the day - I now have 4 amazing sleepers, and he doesn't seem any different - in terms of psychological damage than my other 3.
Yeah - I can totally see how it won't work for everyone, and I can see why people don't want to do it. But honestly, some of the things being said in this thread are down right rude. Not just to Tizzie hall followers- but to anyone who didn't cradle their baby to sleep/feed to sleep etc etc.
I read it, and (most of) it did sit right with me. So we may try it and see how we go. We may hate it or we may love it. But either way I shouldn't be told that I'm a bad parent for doing what I think is right, just as you should be respected for giving something a try and admitting it wasn't right for you.
