    She isn't Australian but The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (UK) has gone against a lot of what she proports and debunks some of her points.

    Hi!

    I think if you have a bub with no reflux or intolerance or feeding issues SOS is a good method to follow.

    I recently read another method about teaching babies to self settle which I believe sums up her methods....

    http://www.sleepeducation.net.au/Doc...g%20Babies.pdf

    It incidentally is from a 'gentle' sleep trainer - the Australian centre for Education in sleep. You could probably use the above as a bit of a cheat sheet of you find the book cumbersome.

    Just on a few negative points that were made:

    1. Advocates leaving a baby cry while you have a coffee- basically the time she suggests you leave a baby to protest cry is 3ish minutes which is enough time to make a cup of tea so she suggests that's what you do with that time as you need to look after yourself as a parent too - you can still make a cup of tea while your bub protests and be a good parent - she's hardly saying 'stuff your baby let them emotional cry while you don't give a Shiz about them and be a selfish mum and make a cuppa instead' which is how I'm sure many haters interpret the suggestion.

    2. Against SIDS guidelines. She suggest many breatheable layers to change depending on the temperature fluctuations every night. Not to put polyester thick blankets on and never alter them to suit. Her baby brother actually died from SIDS, she's hardly going to recommend putting a child at risk of death!

    3. She's making money out if her name and business. I say so what! She's not the only one. Even no cry advocates do ... http://www.shopwithpinky.com/better-than-chocolate-sale

    I have roughly used her routines from about 7 months (he is now 10 months) and found it helped with our sleeping issues. It also helped guide me as to when he should be eating and how much. I rarely refer to the book now as I found the routine section a good starting point and have altered it slightly to suit our family.

    I read the book before having a baby. I thought yeah sounds good. Then I had a baby and thought no way not at all. I guess maybe I should have put it a bit better. Read about it, note it in the back of your head, have the baby and see what you feel is going to be best for you and your baby.

    I was the same. Read the book, thought it was great then I had my baby. It all went out the window. My son has never benefitted from routine, he's been demand fed from the word go, has always fallen asleep in my arms and has never slept through the night and he is now 12 months old. I have a friend who implemented the SOS methods quite early and her little girl is now very settled into her routine.

    Everyone is going to have their own opinions as has been previously stated, this is a very emotive topic, at the end of the day each and every baby is different and this method may not work for some.

    I was given the book for my baby shower 6 yrs ago from my MIL. I found the book a bit too clinical and its methodologies too strict for my liking.

    The furore lies in some people saying SOS is fine - just tweak it to suit your baby and the book saying that it's one way or it doesn't work.

    I will advise you that the original edition that got everyone's back up is no longer in print but has left lasting imprints in many memories. The newer ones have less controversial directives in there.
