Thanks a bloody lot ladies. I got so caught up in this thread that I accidentally fed bub to sleep and missed the 7pm bus!! Now I am probably going to be excommunicated from the SOS fan club.
Not happy jan!
Wise Enough (21-04-2014)
I asked early on in this thread what Save Our Sleep was, exactly. I genuinely had no idea, but was curious as to why it was so controversial- I knew very little about it until this thread. No one really replied to my post so I googled and read a little bit of her website, ie; the introduction bit to get the gist of it and the part where she claims it's nothing like controlled crying- coming from the author herself I figured it was as she explained it, not to be confused with CC.
Anyway, I was/am in no way "angry" in saying it's not like CC, was just quoting what I read on the website which I discovered was the opposite of what another poster was saying.
I did something very similar to CC with DD, but certainly was never advised to let her cry and go off to make a cup of tea
I went in to comfort her, played white noise, cuddled her to sleep half the time and Co slept for almost a year... the reason I say what I did was similar to CC was that for 1 or 2 nights I let her sook for a couple of minutes, self settle etc which worked wonders- none of this "no comforting".stuff I read on the SOS website. CC doesn't rule out comforting, you're just recommended to leave them to settle themselves before going in to soothe them. As far as I can gather, the SOS method is much stricter and shouldn't be confused with CC.
