The main point of my post was to say how horrible it is to hear all of the judgement surrounding the book- when it has worked very well for many parents. Please don't make others feel bad for doing something that they are ok with and works FOR THEM.
ETA- I do not expect my newborn to sleep through. I would like it to if it can- wouldnt everyone?- but wouldn't ever expect this from a baby in general, let alone a new one. Encouraging good sleep habits is something we would like to do but at this point I couldn't even tell you when/how etc etc

I read her book and was interested in trying the routines. Lucky i posted on BH first to get other mums' opinion and then found out this video, in which TH lost all her credit
If you wonder about the temperature of the room, look how she dressed herself.
I don't ever recal reading in SOS that a babies cries should be ignored. SOS is not controlled crying, which I agree I wouldn't do before 6 months.
So many misconceptions....
No, it's not controlled crying, it's cry it out, which I also mentioned in my post above.
Sleep, like crawling, sitting, teething, walking, talking, eating are all milestones that each baby reaches differently and at varying ages.Do you force your child to stand and walk? Do you force your child to sit unassisted? So why force your child to sleep at 8 weeks?
