    Haven't read all the replies but thought I'd share my experience. SOS was recommended to me by a family friend whose daughter follows the routines and sleeps perfectly. I read the whole book and thought I'd give it a go. I wrote down the recommended routine for my daughters age group and tried to follow it over 2 days. I think dd would have been about 2 mths old I can't really remember but around then. Basically those two days dd and myself were miserable and grumpy. I realized that me trying to force this routine on her was making things worse for us both. As soon as I threw out my list and did things how I felt comfortable we both were much happier and I found not long after dd fell into her own routine, which was much different to the book and worked perfectly for her and my family. I don't go about bashing the book and actually I found some info helpful and other bits not, personally it just wasn't for us (dd is now 2 and waaaaaay to spirited to fit into any kind of box lol) different things work for different people, I don't regret trying the routine as it taught me what works for me and my child. Op good luck and hopefully soon ur little man will find his own routine that'll be perfect for you both!

    I never implemented controlled crying techniques at long day care and I was supported by the NCAC and Sids and Kids, not to mention my children's services advisor. If you don't want to do it you shouldn't have to, to be honest you shouldn't be doing it in care at all. I'm all for parental beliefs being respected but not when it goes totally against professional recommendations.

    It doesn't sound like its due to the book to me. Sounds like the parents weren't on the same wavelength from the get go. And that the mum possibly had stress/other issues?

    Bad relationships with mother/child, mother/father aren't caused by a book.

    People gave you instructions? I mean I follow SOS but use commonsense too. Daycare can be stressful for bub and I had fears about bub not sleeping at all. I just told the daycare folks "here are his sleep times at home but follow your gut as long as he gets a sleep." fortunately bub has slept ok most days.

    So right. And I bet if both sides took their blinkers off they would actually find several 'sleep' things they do in common.

    It's in our policy to never leave a baby unattended during wake times (including as they fall asleep) and check on them ever 2 to 5 minutes once asleep. This is from SIDS and Kids as well.

    I do not think your baby or mine went to sleep in the same type of way

    I bet there are some things in common. Eg:
    - night bedtime routine ? (bath, massage, book, feed, we have a kissy poo song we sing)
    - kisses and cuddles before being placed in the cot?
    - comforter?

    I'm sure there's at least something in common!
