    Genuine question...would you have stuck with SOS if you are a duncette like me who still struggles to interpret DS' cries 18 months later? Or do you think it's kind of foolproof in that sense because of the routine/structure it advocates?

    Or they've read it, tried it, realised it wasn't for their baby and chucked it in the bin.

    Perhaps you should re-read the book before bagging it out?

In hindsight I wish I had just chilled out about it.

    It's frustrating I know. You've just got to chill out (easier said than done!). By boy woke early today (long story but hubby didn't swaddle bub...). I loosely followed guidance from the book to try and get some more sleep out of bub during the window. We had lovely snuggles on the lounge while bub napped some more... And hubby looked after ds1 and took care of the housework (hey I couldn't move as I didn't want to wake bub ).

    Yes snuggles with mummy on the SOS routine... Shock horror!

    But you really can't have an understanding of it unless you have read it. I can't really decide if I like something unless I experience it. .. like you can tell me about a book you've read. . the plot. . the characters. .. But unless I read it I can't fully understand it for myself.

    I don't ascribe to it myself, as I said. I found parts helpful. But lots of people have used it with great success. And shouldn't be made to feel bad about following her routines.

    Fair enough. I guess I never gave much priority to reading it because based on the main points I had observed it wasn't for me iykwim?

    Yes. The book gives examples of what a protest cry is. I personally find it pretty easy to tell but if you don't go back and read the book. Then if you still can't tell then the guidance is clear: go to bub. My personal opinion if you can't tell a simple protest cry (aka grizzle) from an emotional one then the book isn't for you. Or rather you aren't for the book.

    Dd1's cues were pretty clear early on, I just used the book to stop catnapping.

    Dd2 was much harder to read for various reasons and I did find it was a million times easier to understand her when I followed the recommendations with a few tweaks.

    I don't think people who are avoiding controlled crying/SOS are saying they've got all the answers or that it's the easiest way to parent. They just know that leaving their baby to cry/protest isn't the answer for them.

    My kids only emotional cry. You're right, I'm not for the book. :-)
