    Yes! Common sense!

    Do not leave your 2 week old baby to cry while you drink tea!

    I won't leave my 9 year old to cry alone while I have a cup of tea and tune her out

    Little babies need the closeness more than the average 9 year old who can be verbally communicated with and can walk and find the parent.

    I wouldn't leave my 79yo grandmother alone while I have a cup of tea and attempt to block her out either. If she is upset and I am there, I will be with her.

    How is it ok to not go to a little baby who is upset, alone, unable to verbally communicate, unable to be reasoned with, unable to make his or her way to the parents or know where the grown ups are and if they will ever come back. It's heartbreaking.

    When babies are just settling themselves to sleep. They are winding themselves down and going in can actually do more harm than good by waking them.

    I actually agree with this. I started at 8 weeks, I felt it was too young earlier.

    I don't have a problem with controlled crying, after 6 months, as an absolute last resort. It works, and sometimes it's the lesser of two evils. What I find ABHORRENT is the idea that tiny babies need to be trained to sleep. I was recommended SOS by so many people before DS was even born I cannot, cannot understand why people think they need to train their babies, who are merely sleeping the way newborns sleep.

    my baby isn't a bad sleeper at night, he catnaps during the day and changes his diet requirements like the scottish weather!! he doesn't have reflux and I have read the book cover to cover.

    she says that she doesn't believe that protest crying for 6 or 7 hours does any lasting damage but she has nothing to support that statement!

    I achieved the same outcome with both my kids, but I rocked my babies to sleep, respond when they cry (not suggesting you didn't, but the book does say not to at times and that goes against every fibre of my being as a mother) and feed on demand and not to some stupid schedule.

    My kids are routine kids. But they set their own routines and while I have tweaked here and there to suit the rest of the family, they can sleep when they want, eat when they want and have cuddles when they are tired and/or upset.

    That would be horrible to listen to. I couldn't do it, in my home or in my profession.

    I havent read the book but have had so many mums tell me to try it. But I know my baby best and I know what works better than some woman who I have never met.

    I'm glad you are doing your own thing now you'll be happier for doing so!
