    My concern with it is that the houdini strap isn't designed to take impact, so in an accident if it was to come undone or break the baby would come out of its seat because it's arms aren't in the top straps, just the shoulders.

    Also that baby could slip out of the swaddle upwards if the car flipped.

    I can email the manufacturer of houdini stop and report back?

    To sum up: I think with SOS you've been sold a bit of a lemon, because the car salesman was so convincing. And now you're pretending that it's this awesome cool vintage car when in fact it's just not very good and maybe you should have just bought a Volvo.
    Apologies for not responding earlier. I was caring for a sick relative.

    For me it's not a car salesman thing. To be honest I didn't know much about the author when I first read SOS and I don't care much about the author now. I first read the book following a recommendation from a friend.
    I still think its more of a style thing. I like the organised (guess/idiot-proof?) approach of SOS. It suits me. I don't like the less structured and airy fairy nature of other books. Like that EASY thing. If this ...and that ...and this and ...put bub to sleep. E is this . A is that. S means abc and Y means def. It took too much energy to figure out what the author was cr@@ping on about. Give me a clear schedule that I can read, apply my common sense to and and if needed adjust.

    Considering my boy sleeps like a champ and has since 3-4 months (no crying, no night wakings, doesn't need to be patted to sleep), for me, SOS has been a Toyota Klueger. Solid, produces results but doesn't necessarily have the frills of the more relaxed books.

    Sorry but I think you're dirty on SOS because it doesn't fit your style of parenting. And that's ok.

    I don't know anyone that follows the Houdini strap thing. Agree there, point proven, let's move on.

    Anyone else want to talk about what bits they follow, what bits they leave and how well/not their bubs sleep?

    Too late VP, I declared myself the winner. And if you are going to continue to assert you know my 'reasons', and dismiss every single thing I've said because you have this notion that I mean something completely different, then I am taking my trophy and going home.

    Just as a p.s I'm kind of disappointed you think I would mince my words. I'm someone who says what I mean.

    What the.... It's not a competition.

    Happy to chat further if you want to talk more about what parts of the book you follow or leave. Not really interested in back and forth tit for tat where both sides are obviously misunderstanding the other.

    I've read the book so hope I am qualified to post

    Since everyone agrees that the Houdini strap is a load of crap and in fact dangerous, doesn't that mean that TH lacks a hell of a lot of credibility? So how do you know what else is a lot of crap (apart from the obvious like kids pooing on demand, etc?). It seems dangerous to me to pick and choose from her book. If you pick the wrong thing to follow you could do a lot of harm!

    I don't think everyone's agreeing to that. I simply said I never paid attention to that bit, don't think I even read it. People don't buy SOS for the bit about the Houdini strap! They buy it for the routines, self settling advice so they can help their baby be a good sleeper.

    You know what would be a good idea. For someone who follows one of the more 'relaxed' books to start a thread on what parts they follow and don't follow. Im pretty sure it would highlight that their are 'things' that parents don't like with every book.

    In keeping in line with the intention of the thread, Have you ever tried SOS? Are there any other things from SoS that you followed? Don't follow?

    No I decided it wasn't for me after reading it before bub was born. We have always had a bedtime routine though and that works well for us.
