I got lots of other good tips, one simply being to burp your baby each time he comes off the nipple if you are breastfeeding, and offer him the breast again once burped, which helps him to take a longer feed in one sitting. This might sound obvious to some (or all?!) but several midwives in the hospital insisted we didn't need to burp a breastfed baby after I asked them to show me how. This quite quickly led us into problems where my son would want to feed, but when I'd bring him to the breast he would arch away crying... no doubt he had a belly full of gas :( Once he was being properly burped that problem was instantly solved.
Routine books are not for everyone, and every mother is different... you have to do whatever makes you feel supported and connected to your bubba. For us, we came away with overwhelmingly positive results, so I would definitely recommend it.
Admittedly there are times when my 11 week old has to cry for a while because I'm sorting something out with his 3 year old sister, or he's hungry and has to wait for his bottle to be ready so I'm not afraid of hearing him cry. But letting a small baby cry itself to sleep can't be creating good associations with their cot or bedtime. I tried it once. Yes my baby cried and literally fell asleep mid-scream after about 8 minutes. But he also woke up screaming. And I'm not going to intentionally do that again - there are far better, gentler ways to create a nice, calm space where a baby can settle itself to sleep, gradually over time. There's also no way my baby can go 4 hours between feeds. I take a much gentler approach to raising my children, and maybe sleep will just have to wait.
I would highly recommend Sheyne Rowley's Dream Baby Guide. It's a real tome, and for 6 months upwards, but focuses on communication first, creating a happy, safe sleep space where a baby is content and reassured if they wake up. There's a bit of crying and interpreting cries which is similar to Tizzy Hall's but only as a last resort and covered far more comprehensively and sensitively. Worked like a dream when my daughter was 12 months.
For now Im going to load up on coffee in the day, enjoy my delicious baby, and relish feeling his heavy little body sleeping on my chest in the night. Once he's 6 months if it's all awful I'll re-read Sheyne's book. I'm not saying this is terrible, it's just not for me.
I'm not so keen on the commercial side of Tizzie Hall- "buy my blakets, only use my sleep sacks" etc which I think belittles the concepts she articulates so well. But worth a consideration amongst the others.
