    (No I didn't follow the SOS guide for transitioning to a big boy bed... Long story involving a busy Christmas, impending newborn and toilet training).
    Well then we are very very different parents. I too have those 'one last drink/toilet trip/kiss' but I ALWAYS say yes to the kisses. Life is too short to not kiss your child good night. I learnt that when I attended a 4yo's funeral in February.

    Dd1 yesterday wanted daddy cuddles for bed. Dh snuggled in with her. I'm sure when he is deployed overseas for the next 7mths he won't regret that cuddle.

    - My point is to toot my own horn...yes I am taking at least some credit for my ds1 being an awesome sleeper.
    I did the same with both girls and one was a crap sleeper and the other slept through at about 2 weeks. From 3 weeks I was getting 12hrs. That's on cuddling to sleep. Woohoo high 5 my awesome cuddles! Surely it's the cuddles I give not the temperament of the baby?

    Genuine question... What happened come the 4 month sleep regression, with your cuddle to sleep bubba?

    I actually consider a bub who can be cuddled to sleep and doesn't wake every 2 hours at night an easy baby, especially after the 4 month sleep regression.

    i also think a sleep whenever, wherever type babies to be easy babies. Mine unfortunately needed routine and to sleep at home to sleep well at night.

    My baby was NOT an easy baby, he fought and fought and fought sleep until he just passed out in my arms from sheer exhaustion. He screamed in my arms for up to an hour while I would pace the floor with him day and night, I sang to him, I playing the wiggles, white noise, I tried feeding to sleep, a swing, the car, a pram, a dummy, I tried EVERYTHING! When he did go to sleep he would wake after 20mins and because he was overtired and hadn't had sufficient sleep he woke crying, he didn't wake happy, content or well rested, he woke still utterly exhausted. People may argue that short periods of crying are not optimal for baby, I don't think 2 x 20min sleeps between 9am in the morning until 9pm at night was optimal for his development either.

    I can't answer for Wise Enough but for my oldest two, I co-slept - I don't remember a four month sleep regression? I just slept t!ts out and all was good!

    Only 1/3 of my babies had 4 month sleep regression.

    I didn't know it existed as it only happened with my third. In fact, my first started sleeping through at 4 months.

It's just that the author openly supports allowing kids to cry/grizzle/whinge (whatever you want to call it) despite the recommendations not to.

    And I'm not suggesting my parenting choices are superior, just genuinely questioning if parents were aware of the research. A lot if people may not have come across any information.
    But there's also research that says control crying (respond and return--not crying it out) doesn't have negative effects. I know of a couple articles but they're from another parenting site so can't be posted here.

    I also think you should stop putting crying and grizzling in the same ballpark. They are very different. Maybe you have a baby that doesn't grizzle and always goes straight to crying but I have a baby that grizzles and is ok when he does it, he's tired and trying to transition to a deep sleep, having me interrupt that would mess it all up for him.
