OMG - that is horrific - I had read Sully's post and saw someone mention it but to see it in print is shocking! Am glad I never spent the money on buying that book!

Yeah it's pretty horrific Regardless of whether her routines are good or not, I just can't take advice from someone who condones this behavior towards babies

I could never knowingly let my bubba cry until he vomits! Even if he still doesn't sleep through the night at 18!

I've got that book and that's not in it.

I think someone's posted an alters quote to suit themselves.

I didn't use her methods as they were pretty much similar to Gina Fords anyway and really, my sons going to eat and sleep when he needs to so honestly reading those books were just another way to pass the time.

Haha, I was wondering when I'd posted about tizzie hall! ;)

I have to agree though - I never read that in her book. I would probably have tried the methods if I'd 1. Read the book early on and 2. Not had a son that definitely had his own ideas about life and the whole big picture. My son was and still is waaay too stubborn for such regimental scheduling. Plus I'm pretty lazy at times. Doing what I'm told doesn't always suit me. :)

Oh sorry I should clarify - this isn't in every book, it's her response to some mums who were asking her questions about the fact that their babies were vomiting from excessive crying.

And I do believe that there are different versions of the book published which have this advice published.

Look, in all honesty, some babies will vomit in order to get your attention. Kids learn super fast how to get what they want, and bubs are really no exception. It's just a bit more undeveloped. If my child was vomitting due to an attempt to avoid self soothing, I would follow the direction she's given. I think I can see a bit of the question just below it and it says 7 month old... They sooooo know why they're doing...

Have you ever tried to make yourself vommit? It's actually not easy...try it, I'll bet you can't do it by sheer willforce. Most people have to put their fingers down their throats. Babies don't put their fingers down their throats to vommit and cannot 'will' themselves to do it.

Vommiting during/after crying is a reaction to EXTREME STRESS! A baby cannot control it any more than it can control when it will poo or wee.

Seriously people, babies don't vommit to manipulate you to give them attention. They must be really distressed AND/OR sick - give your baby comfort before it gets this far PLEASE!

Yup, I've read that too. It makes me want to vomit and how disgusting that advice is. She might as well say if your baby cries to the point of vomiting I'd recommend you don't feed them for a few days so then they at least won't make a mess.

Babies cry because there is something wrong and they need you. I cried the last time I was sick enough to vomit too... Lucky I had a caring husband to hold me, get me water, clean me up. That was in my early stages of pregnancy. I can't imagine not being there for my precious baby when he's crying and sick.
