It's great when a book/plan works for some though. I would have loved for something to just click.

Iwill start by saying I havent read SOS but I think that it would depend on your child. I have no doubt that some babies do grizzle to let off steam before falling to sleep themselves. My baby is NOT one of them. If I was to put her down she might grizzle for a bit but that quickly turns to crying then hysteria and there is no way there is falling asleep by herself. My bub needs a bit more help to fall asleep and thats ok. Some bubs arecgood sleepers and some arent as @BlueLips said sleeping through is developmental and all babies develop at different rates. Some babies can roll at 3mths some 6mths etc. IMO finding the sleep method that works for your bub and work with that... well thats my plan.

Don't worry VP. I don't expect my kids to sleep thru Xmas lunch. We all went for a nap post food. Curled up together in the big bed with dhs snores to lull us to sleep.

Although I cuddle to sleep and won't let my baby cry I will admit to being harsher once they are over 1. I think less than 1 they need you and aren't manipulating you. After 1, especially after 2 they know how to play you.
Over 1 grizzling versus crying is if you go in and they stop immediately and start smiling. If it was true crying they need a cuddle to stop.

If she's hungry outside her routine feed time, I top her up. If she's tired before her routine sleep time, I put her to bed. TH does actually say that you should feed do what I just mentioned so I don't know what your point is.
She grizzles when she's going off to sleep (whether I'm cuddling or shh'ing her)
She squeals when she has a dirty nappy
She cries when she's in pain
She yells when she's hungry
She makes a funny loud 'Ahhh' sound to let you know that she's awake
Then there's her happy chattering

From what I read here it sounds like no one is following SOS to the letter but rather using it as a guide while following SOS as a rough guide.
I read it and thought this military schedule was ridiculous. I wouldn't live like that and I wouldn't expect a baby to live by the clock either. They are only humans with feelings and emotions after all

We used her routines as a guide. Chose the methods that would work for us and our baby plus a toddler.
