    What I'm saying OP is to look at your child and try to work on his/her individual needs.
    The book states that there is no
    One size fits all routine for a toddler. It's just an example and parents have to come up with something for their child (more or less what you're advocating . )

    Yes, parents need to use their commonsense but surely commonsense would suggest ignoring most if not all of her book? In which case it seems like it would be a bit of a waste of money to buy it in the first place.
    Good onya. You are recommending ignoring most of the book when you haven't even read it and obviously have no real understanding.

    Yep, looks like you jumped on the judgmental SOS haters bandwagon.

    Now if you want to rant further start your own thread.

    Personally, I found the routines suggested in SOS worked well for DS1 up to age 2 but I didn't follow all of her advice in the book. As for DS2, well, I was just wondering how much his current routine differs from the SOS recommended one as I don't have the book any more. I think it might be time to cut down his nap time (currently 2.5hrs) as he's been waking very early in the mornings lately, catnapping in the morning and then and having difficulty going down for his proper nap.
    I'm looking at cutting the day nap altogether for my toddler as he takes ages to go to sleep now at night. The routines and guides have been useful to date in helping to establish healthy sleep habits.

    Yup - I have a one-hour-nap kid over here. Three hours would be heaven!

    My toddler has a 2 hour nap but it can't go later than 2pm or we have a very late bedtime. Usually it goes from 12-2pm
