- I like to think my good sleeper (ds1) is in some way due to the hard work I put in with establishing his routine, making his bed space comfortable etc. I am pretty sure Myself/SOS played a part because prior to SOS he didn't settle or sleep well and always cried for a feed.

A bub may want a cuddle, but if they have plenty of love and care and cuddles and attention in the day, then it is a want, not a need. Every baby needs to sleep.
My child wants to play at the park all day, but doesn't need to. She may want to eat apples for every meal of every day, but doesn't need to.
There is a time and a place for everything, but if a bub is purposely throwing up, when they NEED to sleep, because they WANT attention, then sorry, but slew is faaaar more important.
I'm not expecting people to agree with me, bur this is where I sit.

My first could put herself to sleep from 8 weeks of age. I was able to read her tired cues were easy to read and she was a pretty happy baby anyway.
Lucky my third was the easiest newborn ever and quite easy overall as she was dragged around, woken up, slept anywhere because of 2 older toddlers who needed entertaining. I think it's impossible to implement sos on third child when you've got school run, work etc.

Just leaving opposing parenting philosophies aside for the moment... To those who've read a range of parenting books - do the other books leave this much room for interpretation/misinterpretation, or are they more 'idiot'-proof?
Because that keeps leaping out to me as the main issue. Not the semantics about whether a cup of tea literally means having a cup of tea or not, but the fact that this distinction is being made in the first place.
And surely, if this book can be misinterpreted to the extent that even some of SOS's biggest proponents are saying that some people are getting it very wrong, then that's a massive problem?
