As to what you say you did, that isn't CIO/CC imo. Putting a bub to bed who is having a grizzle bc they are tired and comforting by going in, tapping their bum etc and calming them I don't see as being harmful.
But you are right - SOS is more CIO than CC and I think there's a difference. As you say CC you go in and out and you do comfort.
Tizzie says it's not CIO and to know the difference between protest cries and genuine upset... but then tells parents that babies that are so worked up they vomit are manipulating their parents and to let them cry and change them later. Clearly a child crying that bad they vomit, is way beyond a protest cry - and that's why I say there is a heap of mixed messages and euphemisms.
She wrote the book childless, but I read ironically she didn't use SOS on her kids....

I preferred a much simpler book called 12 Hours Sleep by 12 Weeks old but I took parts of SOS (eg the 7pm sleep bus and keeping baby warm at bedtime)
I couldn't get DD to have good day sleeps but she slept 7pm-7am from 11 weeks

Dh's cousin use SOS on their kids. It's bloody painful. Whenever we visit them interstate we HAVE to go in their baby's awake time. Nevermind any other childs needs. Thankfully my two are easy going. They were shocked that dh and I have a social life as we often take our kids out to functions, weddings etc. Forget putting that routine on the kids! I certainly don't want to do the exact same thing every day!

I hear all too often that mums are struggling with the limited sleep and that their babies will only sleep on them. I was like that with dd2 until I got her into a routine.
As soon as I suggest getting bub into a routine, out come the comments about how it's not natural, babies need to be cuddled to sleep etc. If it's leaving you really exhausted, how is that good?
What's so wrong with helping my baby to know what comes next? What's so wrong with showing her that she can go off to sleep and I'm there if she needs me?

Putting a child to bed when they are clearly tired and comforting them while they are in bed/the cot and coming straight back in when they don't settle imo is fine. It's extended periods where they child is really distressed that upsets people.

I know loads of people love the book - I think it's pretty much crap but that's cool. Horses for courses and all that!
