    At least controlled crying has you going in to the baby. From what I can remember Tizzie had you ignoring the child's 'sleep protesting cries'. Because we can all speak fluent baby. :-/

    With the protest crying, I actually call it grizzling as I don't think it's crying at all. Both girls grizzle/d as a way to wind down for sleep. That is when I will pat and 'shh shh'.
    Sorry, I think we were posting at the same time.

    Yeah, I think she just does an ammended controlled crying.

    Speak for yourself. I can understand my baby's cues pretty damn well

    I thought controlled crying was going in every couple of minutes to soothe your baby and slowly lengthening that time frame as your baby settles? And from what I've read in this thread and on her website, her method recommends basically leaving the baby to cry without comfort?
    I am not an advocate for SOS, just wondering what it is and how it can be compared with controlled crying when the two seem very different to me.

    I started ds2 on SOS today. It worked fantastically with DS1 who started sleeping through within days of starting it and who never had to cry for a feed and rarely cried at all actually...

    Of course as with anything I will use my common sense. I never follow anything blindly 100%.

    One frustrating thing is that most people on BH who bag out SOS don't really understand it. Many haven't read it. They criticise based on misinformation and bits and pieces that someone's Friends Aunty's mother told them. The funny thing is those same people, in other threads talk about certain things they do with bub and I smirk to myself "that's actually in the SOS book. If only you knew "

    Really? I can't answer that for dd2, but dd1 protest cried (grizzled) at 2 weeks. She was still cuddled to sleep at 2 weeks but she would grizzle in my arms as she went off to sleep.

    Or they're complaining that their baby hardly sleeps and they're exhausted

    Well your SIL is an idiot. Even the book says it is ok to feed outside of scheduled times. I gave my young bub top ups outside of the scheduled time today, just topped him up again at the scheduled times.
