    Default Hungry cry or just awake?

    I’ve just started tizzie halls save our sleep and am wondering if he’s waking up in the night with a protest cry, do I feed him at these times? I have been but now I’m getting confused because I’ve had awesome success in getting him to sleep knowing the difference between the 2 cries. But I also don’t want him getting unnecessarily upset throughout the night either!

    How old is he?
    I’m not sure about that lady either. Is she the cry it out one?
    There are a lot of helpful gentle parenting guide books around. Elizabeth Pantley and Pinky McKay come to mind.

    Wouldn’t touch anything by Tizzie Hall if my life depended on it. Absolutely second Elizabeth Pantley’s approach (her book is The No-Cry Sleep Solution).

    How old is Bub? Personally if bub is a bit older (3+ months), I will leave them if they aren’t crying, just the “ehhh ehhh ehhh” sounds, like they are building up to cry but don’t actually cry. If they are starting and stopping (ie doing that noise for a bit, then stopping for a bit, then starting and stopping) i leave them. If they start crying I go to them.

    Personally, the save our sleep book is not for me, others say they've got success though.

    Honestly, go with your gut. YOU know your baby best - not some book/author. Every baby is different. No 2 babies are the same- this is why they aren't born with a manual )

    Babies can only communicate with crying.... Hungry, cold, hot, scared, itchy, thirsty, need a new nappy, need to burp, pain, just wanting mum.... they cry. They don't usually cry for "no" reason. They aren't manipulative. They're learning. Even if we don't know why they're crying , it's normally not for nothing. It's just that we haven't figured the reason out yet

    Go with your gut. If it's safe. If bub and you are happy and healthy, if what you're doing is working... stick with it. Try not to get too caught up In what you should/ shouldn't be doing because you'll go crazy if bub doesn't respond to that method.

    How old is he? Also take into consideration how much intake he has during the day. Bub might need the night feeds.

    I didn’t use that book, but up to 12 months I never restricted breastfeeding for my bubs. I did let DD cry at 12 months to get her out of the habit of feeding all night and feeding to sleep, but in the early days I just fed her whenever.

    early days i fed whenever. i think up to 3-4 months, it’s wrong to restrict as they do still need a feed overnight. dd is now 6 (almost 7 months) and is still waking for a feed overnight. as she’s previously slept through and is on 2-3 meals in the day, i don’t think she’s waking out of hunger. i do let her grizzle a bit in case she goes back to sleep but if she doesn’t, i feed her.

    i don’t like that tizzie hall book but i’ve heard it’s worked for some people. just not for us.

    how old is your bub??

    Huge Tizzie and save our sleep fan here..... it’s recommended all night wakes to treat as hunger until 6 months. How old is bub? How’s the rest of the routine? And are you following her bedding guide?

    DD1 slept through from 16 weeks and DD2 from 6 weeks both following SOS.


    Save our sleep is not popular around here so feel free to message me if you’d prefer.

    Her bedding guide is on the website and is different depending on climate and this is why a lot of people slam her but what people don’t realise is that what she recommends you need to follow to a tee. Like you can’t use the blankets with a waterproof mattress protector as they’re not breathable ect, the blankets aren’t just any type of blanket- they’re a cotton bamboo blend for weight and warmth but also breathable. So if you use all of her products or the recommended equivalent they’re quite safe as they’re breathable. I’ve used the bedding guide and I’d recommend it but only if you’re comfortable to do so. If you’re genuinely interested in what I use I’m happy to PM you but last time this was discussed I was slammed for it so not interested in starting a debate again.
