My dr called ellen barron Centre and they had no availability til next year. He's writing referrals for both places for me and listed urgent. My dd didn't sleep more than about 4 hours last night.
Sent from my GT-I9505 using The Bub Hub mobile app
loved it though and found the support amazing. I would have gone to nurture centre if they were open then.
IMO, its still a form of cc/CIO but renamed "responsive settling" hence why they don't recommend this strategy until over 9 months of age.
bub cries that high pitched cry for 5 minutes, you go in to bub, reassure bub, exit room, close door then listen to bubs cries again. That's cc you set the time/listen to bubs cries and distinguish hysterical, wind down, calling out, protesting etc. it's cc - no two ways about it.
CIO if you didn't respond to bub at all and bub cried for 10 mins winding down to falling asleep, that's CIO. You left bub to cry without responding at all.
Anyway I was comfortable with the method as my DS was 14 months and it worked on him after 3 weeks.
That's interesting you had that experience as there was no times set at all for me. As I said I listened to his cries and responded accordingly - no watching the clock at all.
Day 2 at nurture centre and the support is amazing. Couldn't be happier with the centre itself. Definitely not CIO, mums are encouraged to react however they want
