I don't mind a bit of debate so long as it's respectful which I believe it is.
It would just be nice for certain members to adjust their views about other peoples kids and what they are capable of in terms of sleep. Even amongst those friends of mine who were rabid sleep trainers there is a general acceptance that it doesn't work for every child.
It's only on here you find it.
Why should some members adjust their views and not others? When did the sleep referee come in and declare one side as being the most correct?
Only on Bub Hub
Ps I agree it is great to see this thread is mostly respectful unlike the thread that this was a spin-off from.
And where is the harm VicPark in your admitting that maybe some kids do wake up and that's ok? Why are you so strident in your views. I have been involved in many threads where I change my views. Other people's experiences on here give me a new perspective. I am not insisting you change your views. Just disappointed that you are not even open to the idea.

A-Squared what you don't appreciate is that every time these stats are trotted out it's a little stab to the heart of a sleep deprived mother reading Bubhub. I know she's not accurate so I don't care but I've had 4 kids and enough life experience to know one person's opinions on here don't matter to me.
Sorry but I strongly believe if someone is to make these assertions they should be accurate. No one on here is saying the sleep training won't work with 9/10 babies so why do it?
I created this as a safe place for people to share their stories about their children and their sleep so maybe those who held strident views could open their minds.
Clearly I failed.
