    Maggie I feel for you I truely do. Matilda was very similar to your little one as far as I can read with reflux & sleep issues. We went to sleep school as well. Honestly it broke my heart and was very hard. I don't encourage sleep schools at all, but I do encourage mum's getting some support. As you are already going listen to their advice but do what your heart says. Don't be lead astray if your heart is breaking & your baby is screaming. Be strong in what you want for both of you going in & you will win in the end. I went knowing that I disagree with CC. So while I was there I took their advice & I got some rest and a break from house life... and came home and altered what we did there to fit what we wanted in our house. I didn't leave Matilda crying as they suggested. I stayed with her & rocked her until she was settled & then put her in her cot & patted her bottom until she was asleep. I don't mind spending the time doing that.

    Last night Matilda was a bit of a mess going to bed, she's 2 1/2 now and I sat and rocked her on my lap until she was more settled then I tucked her in & sat next to her for 15 minutes and then left the room.
