Manny.. I think its great if it works for you and you trust it.
I just wish i gave birth to a book of answers along with my baby!
I think TH should be acknowledging the fact that she has no research to prove that what she is saying has no lasting negative effect, especially since there is research out there which indicates that it may cause problems in later life.
Look, I guess anything ca be related to problems in later life, I'm just annoyed with myself that I caused my son a lot of unnecessary distress.

That book had my SIL convinced my nephew was a naughty, disobedient, disrespectful and manipulative child. As an infant. I'm so sorry you feel into her deep, dark trap. SHE is the manipulative one, by tricking parents into believing her way is the right way and that if a baby does not behave in that way then the BABY is to blame.

Please send it. My heart breaks when I hear a parent saying they they use it.

Great letter! I read the book last week after everyone in my mothers group were reading it and convinced me i needed to stick to the routine for benefits in tge future.
It took me 24hrs to realise I was doing all the right things all along, in trusting my instincts. The book wasn't for me. I have never had a tight schedule for myself like that. Sometimes I'm hungry at 4pm and sometimes I don't need food till 7pm. How can I say to my baby that he can only eat at certain times, not when he is hungry or thirsty?
I have been really lucky and have done demand feeding from the beginning and my little man is sleeping 9hrs at night! It's not always perfect but it works for us! It's so unrealistic to say if you stick to her routine your baby should rarely cry...rubbish!!
It can be so hard but...trust your instincts!!

she condones leaving a baby to fall asleep in a soiled nappy to teach them you won't play the game of changing their nappy if they poo once they are in bed.
the woman is not a kind person. To put it gently

And yeah I read the book when jasper was 6 weeks old and cried because I knew it wouldn't work and i had hoped it would SAVE MY SLEEP.
But I've kept my copy if ever I need to quote it to dissuade people from buying it.

I have read the book and plan to take elements from it when our bub arrives if they work for us. I think that it is very important to go in with an open mind and relate each book/advice to your situation. If it doesn't work for you, it also doesnt mean that the author is 'evil' or that permanent damage will be done.
I feel sorry for those parents who are so lost in a sleep deprive haze that the book is taken out of context- I imagine that would be easy to do, as with any book. I also think its sad that so many people think it is ok to 'Tizzie-bash' especially because this book has been so helpful for so many parents- what about those parents who are tearing their hair out because they have only heard incorrect things about the book so refuse to try it- when in reality it might be the thing that helps them?
I think it's only fair to comment on your own personal experience with the book. Please do not slag it off if you have not even read it! I feel awful for those mums that have tried it and had an awful experience with it- and think it is great for them to share and hopefully learn from others other alternatives if SOS isn't for you. But please don't bash it with incorrect information.
Would love to know where it says to leave a child in a pooey nappy to 'teach it a lesson' because I imagine that has probably been taken out of context too.
Let's support each other- not criticise each other.
