    Quick snap poll: all the ladies on this thread:
    A) do you follow SOS
    B) how old are your kids and do they sleep through?

    Me:

    Yes I follow SOS. I use my common sense though I never follow anything else 100%.

    Ds1: 2.5 slept through (7-7) from 12 weeks
    Ds2: 8 weeks still hit and miss (last 3 nights twice slept from 8ish-6:30am with a dream feed, last night woke at 4;30am)

    And while we're at it, how many people attempted SOS and it did nothing at all to help their babies sleep?

    13 weeks is still so little. My DD2 didn't sleep through the night consistently until she started prep this year. At 13 weeks she was still feeding quite a few times a night.

    All children are different, my first two are lovely sleepers my youngest is different, she just doesn't seem to need as much sleep. Yes it drives me mad, but I can either fight it and drive myself insane or work with it for a peaceful home.

    He's still a newborn. I really don't understand why you think he should be sleeping through?

    My DD started sleeping through at age 5, she would always wake with bad dreams and want a cuddle to go back to sleep. My DS1 is 2.5 and pretty much sleeps through now. And DS2 is 11.5 months and wakes every 2hrs for boob. All normal, and I'm ok with it.

    Technically none of my kids sleep through consistently, in the 10-12 hour stretch without waking sense.

    DS1 sleep walks and has night terrors, usually 5 nights a week.

    DS2 climbs into my bed every single night. I let him because if its comfort and closeness he craves, thats what he'll get.

    DS3 wakes up at 4-4:30am every day because of DH's alarm, we give him a bottle with 100mls of formula and he goes back to sleep. But he doesn't usually sleep all the way through.

    You're incredibly lucky that your other 3 slept through from 6 weeks, that is really not the norm at all.

    After everything he has been through he probably has negative associations with sleeping or something. I really think its important to be patient with him, I understand sleep deprivation is extremely hard to deal with, but especially with a baby who has been so sick, I think CC or CIO is not a great option.

    No SOS here.

    DD slept 6/7pm - 7/8am from 4 weeks until about 17 weeks. Goodness I was an amazing parent during that period of time!

    Then she broke and aforementioned possessed banshee mode kicked in until 10 months. SOS wasn't an option because there was no 'grizzling'. Even if I had been willing to risk the ire of the neighbours by using CC, I couldn't bring myself to. Every time I thought about it I also thought about how I felt on the occasions I have fallen asleep crying - you know, wrung out, wake up with a headache, eyes that need toothpicks and generally exhausted for the entire day.

    From 10 months she has been pretty good. We've done co-sleeping at times but at the moment (at 5.5) she drifts off to sleep by herself after we have read a few books together.

    She usually does 7/8pm - 7/8am. Although this morning she woke up before 6:30 so we're having breakfast in bed together.

    Those months when she didn't sleep in her first year were hellish. Especially as I was working. But hey, if my parenting was the cause of her sleeping badly for those 6 months then I can safely claim my parenting was also the cause of her not going through the terrible twos/three/fours/fives. Having gotten through the sleep hell, I'd pick that again over dealing with tantrums. Although obviously this time round I've ordered a baby who sleeps AND who doesn't tantrum

    I read SOS and attempted the routines loosely. .. But never allowed my dd to cry much as she has a medical condition. She's 16 months. .. And has only slept through a handful times in the last few months. I did follow the advice on dream feeds and bedtimes/awake times. I'm a first time mum so had I not read the book after a friend recommended it I wouldn't have known about lots of stuff. . though I'm sure I would've found it in another book.
    I found the book didn't really work for babies with medical problems even though I read the section on premmies. .. though my dd isn't a premmie.

    You've had lots of feeding difficulties and cmpi etc with your baby. .. so after all that plus hospital with him I am sorry to say that I think sleeping through is a way off. My dd was in hospital 6 times in 9 months in her first year of life. .. plus surgeries etc. .. She's 16 months and only occasionally sleeps through. She pretty much woke every 1-2 hours for her first year of life plus had many many nights where she just wouldn't go to bed til 2 or 4 am..... hospital is a major disruption for many babies.
