They all seem much the same to me, after Pinky's backlash the other week I went onto her website and saw that she is selling all this crap and I just thought - they seem the same. They approach parenting from different angles but at the end of the day they are just out to flog their merchandise.
Another aspect apart from the CIO aspect I find cruel is the advice for catnapping. I'm all for routine, I am, but she suggests if your baby wakes early from a nap you should keep them up till the next nap is due. This could be 3 hours for a 3 month old baby.
That's certainly one aspect I didn't follow.
In keeping with the original intent of the thread please talk about what bits you've left and what bits you've followed. This thread is not meant to be a platform for liberal parents who hate SOS (and who never intended to follow it) to vent their already cemented ideas. If there's a bit you don't follow, try also listing a bit that does make sense.
Now back to the intent of the thread. Bits you follow and bits you leave. I never had to follow the poo/vomit on demand thing. As with the crying part of SOS the idea is that if you have the routines and sleep environment right, there is little need for a baby to be upset in the first place. This is what I found. After I started SOS my boy never cried for a feed (whereas before he did). No night wakenings either. No crying at bed time (big smiles actually). Certainly no poo'ing or vomiting on demand.
I believe older babies can do poo's on demand though. And I believe whenever there is a night wakening that you need to fix the situation wih the least amount of fuss. Fuss just wakes bub up further and creates a platform of attention which can encourage bub to wake out of habit.
- but as I said earlier: get the first part right and you never have to deal with the peripheral extreme crap that the naysayers focus on (pun intended).
Sorry about the mostly off topicness!

i think the problem though Vic, this that it's a bit of a loaded question. It's in the general sleep section and you have asked for those that have read the book to list what they have and haven't used. Many have replied they have read the book, but used little to none of the advice and listed what and why. So in people's defence they have stuck to the OP.
Maybe this thread would be better in the CIO section with a clear direction that only Tizzy supporters can reply?
