    It is an incorrect assumption that only desperate, sleep deprived mothers suffering from PND and unable to make rational, informed decisions choose to use guidance from her book.

    And for those who protest to her recommendations that go against SIDS guidelines, SIDS&KIDS still does not recommend the practice of sleeping with your baby either, does this mean in the unfortunate event of an incident occurring from this practice that you will point the finger firmly at Sears, McKay and the like simply because they advocate it!?

    So you are saying just bc others promote co sleeping which in certain circumstances can be a SIDS risk that it's ok to tell parents to over rug their babies? I remember looking at the Save our Sleep page on FB and most of the pics of babies sleeping were sweating, red and clearly overheated.

    Just as I wouldn't promote co sleeping while drunk, I wouldn't promote rugging your kids up to the point of over heating as they are both SIDS risks.

    Maybe this thread would be better in the CIO section with a clear direction that only Tizzy supporters can reply?
    Because I don't want to hear a distorted view from people who only do CIO. That is such a small part of SOS and many parents following the book don't even need to do it.

    I welcome people explaining in a respectful way why they don't use a certain part of the book. I don't think it's too much to ask to keep the insults and hatred out of it though.

    I'm saying that people pick and choose to adhere to the 'rules' only when it suits them. TH's Bedding Guide is simply that, a guide! I would expect people to use common sense, as you would expect people to use common sense when choosing to bed share with their baby. Both of which are against SIDS guidelines.

    [QUOTE=VicPark;7308322]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 can completely relate to this

    I think there are genuinely some mums who have a very natural ability to know, see, hear exactly what their babies want long before they get themselves into a state, and kudos to them, I'm jealous. But this was not me. My LO completely transformed after only days of being on the routines, he never needed to cry for food, never cried from being overtired because he was fed and happily asleep before he even had a chance too. And when he did cry and I could very easily eliminate a long list of potential problems and get to the crux of the problem very fast.

    He went from one day sleeping 2 x 20min catnaps between 9am & 9pm to the next sleeping 4hrs during the day and 10-12hrs at night. He was a completely different baby.

    Co sleeping generally, isn't dangerous though. Sleeping with your child while substance effected, on meds, overly tired or having too much bedding is dangerous. People like Sears and Pinky clearly point that out. But Tizzy is directly preaching info that is dangerous...

    I did start reading it when I had my son a few years ago, having no idea about the controversy surrounding it. I actually couldn't finish it because it was so against my natural instinctual parenting style and what I felt was right. I remember reaching a particularly disturbing part (to me) and just had to put it down. So to answer, I couldn't say I followed any of it. It's only since being on BH I have seen threads like this and my personal beliefs have been affirmed by others. I'm sure there are parts mums have found useful but it just wasn't for me.

    Putting a blanket on your baby, generally, isn't dangerous either.

    I personally understand what it is that she is trying to achieve by her bedding guide because of the positive outcomes that it had for me. Its about finding that balance between not putting your baby at risk from overheating but keeping them warm enough to have quality, undisturbed and safe sleep throughout the night. I have never needed to use her maximum recommended blanket layers to keep my LO warm enough to sleep through, but what it did teach me was that I was so conditioned to worrying that I didn't want my baby to overheat, that he actually ended up being cold, and possibly had been for months, this not being an ideal outcome either. Each baby is going to be different, some are able to sleep through the coldest part of the night with minimum layers, or regulate their body temperatures much more effectively than others. We as adults don't all feel comfort at the same temperature levels, why would babies!?

    I don't believe that she has put my DS at risk, I utilise the tools I have to provide him with the safest possible sleep space. I check his head, chest and neck to feel his body temperature, I use a groegg to monitor his room temperature and I check my weather app every night before bed to see what minimum temp is going to be throughout the night and if I need to set heating, remove / add layers. After months of doing this I have now gotten to know my baby's individual requirements very well, using her recommendations as a guide.

    Had I not discovered her bedding guide my LO would have still be cold, he would have unnecessarily still be waking throughout the night, having disturbed sleep and I would still have been waking up and feeding him in the night when he didn't really require it, I didn't know any differently. It helped me to simply and effectively fix the crux of the problem and as a result my family gets a good nights sleep. It really was a win-win for me.

    But she actually tells parents the toggle, which is too high. So it isn't just telling them to put a blanket on their baby. You are right, parents can pick and choose what they want to take on and ignore. But it seems lot of Tizzy users do stick to her bedding guide.

    Each to their own. it has worked for you and that's fine. I personally believe the book needs to be taken out of circulation.

    Just FYI this is info from Sids & Kids on Bedsharing

    Special note about bed-sharing
    Many parents bring baby into bed to feed, cuddle and
    settle their baby. In cultures across the world, including
    Australia, many parents choose to share a bed with
    their baby.
    Sharing a sleep surface with a baby increases the risk
    of SUDI in some circumstances.
    Babies who are most at risk of sleeping accidents whilst
    sharing a sleep surface are babies less than three
    months of age, and babies born preterm or small for
    gestational age (low birth weight).
    Sharing a sleep surface with a baby must be
    avoided in the following circumstances where:
    • baby shares the sleep surface with a smoker
    • care-giver is under the influence of alcohol or
    drugs that cause sedation
    • baby is premature, small when born, or less than3 months of age
    • care-giver is overly tired
    • there is adult bedding, doonas or pillows that may
    cover the infant
    • baby could be trapped between the wall and bed,
    fall out of bed or could be rolled on
    • baby is sharing bed with other children or pets
    • baby is placed to sleep on a sofa, beanbag,
    waterbed or sagging mattress
    Important considerations when choosing to share
    a sleep surface with a baby:
    1. Babies are at greatest risk if they sleep on their
    tummies or sides and if their faces become covered.
    2. Make sure the mattress is firm and the bedding
    cannot cover the baby’s face
    3. Make sure soft items such as pillows, doonas,
    lambswool and soft toys are not in the baby’s
    sleep environment
    4. Ensure baby is not wrapped if bed-sharing
    5. Place baby at the side of one care-giver and not
    between two care-givers as this increases the
    likelihood of the baby’s head becoming covered,
    baby slipping underneath adult bedding or baby
    becoming overheated
    6. To prevent falling ensure the baby is not close to
    the edge of the bed
    7. Do not place pillows atthe side ofthe baby to prevent
    rolling off; a safer alternative is to place the adult
    mattress on the floor. Pushing the bed or mattress
    against the wall can be hazardous; babies have died
    when they became trapped between the bed and the wall
    8. As an alternative to bedding, a safe baby sleeping bag
    may be used without bedding so that the baby does
    not share the adult bedding.
    9. See the SIDS and Kids information statement:
    ‘Sleeping with a Baby’ for further information.
