is this the part in SOS?
1. If you are "really committed" you put the baby to bed (with a comforter of course), go to the kitchen, empty the kettle, re-fill it with cold water, boil it, make yourself a cup of tea, sit down and drink it. If at the end of your cup of tea your baby is still "protesting", go and see if there's a problem
2. Option number 2 is is to "allow him to shout (cry) for a minimum of two minutes" although "the longer you stay out the better for your baby, as going in is more for your sake than your baby's".

Save our sleep
Now, to be fair, it's possible that there is a range of ways that this book can be interpreted, going by what some other posters have said on here. But I have an issue with that too. It's all very well to dismiss someone as being an idiot because they've 'got it wrong', but there shouldn't be any room for that kind of misinterpretation if the book is written properly and expressed clearly. It's a diversion to say that everyone else is getting it wrong...
ETA and just re-reading that part, Option 1 is about this 'protest crying'. Option 2 not only uses the term shout (cry), but then expressly says a *minimum* of 2 minutes, and challenges us to wait for longer, for the sake of the baby. I don't interpret Option 1 and 2 to be talking about the same kind of crying. And I don't think *I'm* an idiot. It's just confusing.

In the sos toddler book, she says that when a new baby arrives to move the toddler to the other side of the house or even to the grandparents while you train your new baby. Why? Because there is crying.
Not sure why you're getting defensive because you were saying you were in the room patting and shushing.
