    It's not for me. I believe when my baby cries, there's a reason for it, and wanting me to cuddle him to sleep is a legitimate reason for me. I know people who've had success with it though.

    Another believer that if they cry there's a reason, even if it's for a cuddle. Your tiny little bundle of joy has spent 9 months constantly close to you the transition is hard. Yes you may get to sleep through but I believe that's because they've given up and emotionally disconnected. I have also heard horror stories when "routine" has changed due holidays, illness etc that they ( bub and parents) can't cope. Bub will only sleep in their own bed etc

    I was told by a few people that SOS is really helpful for the 4 months keep regression. Is this true?

    Those who have said it's dangerous and the like can you be specific? What is so bad about it? I have no idea what her ideas are about or anything about it so I'm my having a dig, genuinely interested about what is so bad.

    She promotes over rugging, to the point of being a SIDS risk from overheating.

    Studies show babies left to cry have high cortisol levels which can affect right up to adulthood with anxiety etc

    She openly says to allow littlies to soil and vomit themselves and to leave them as it's manipulative.

    A very famous study by John Bowlby shows small children who don't have their needs attended to become anxious and/or ambivalent towards their parents and even avoid them.

    Whilst i havent personally used it or read it it seems to work for a lot of people whether they follow it all or parts of it.

    Subbing as I was given a copy of this book and barely had a moment to read it but from what I did read I can't say much has struck a chord with me as it seems very strict and harsh.

    I prefer to err on the side of a cuddle. They are only babies for such a small amount of time. I can barley get a cuddle out of DD1 now who is 2.5.

    DD1 was a crap sleeper. DD2 is a fantastic sleeper. I did the same for both.

    I find letting babies cry just too stressful on myself. I would rather not let then cry and sacrifice a bit of sleep.
