I was there, too! I was actually rather surprised at Dr Fleiss' unprofessional talk. He was totally bashing "Happiest Baby" and Dr Karp. I have no problem with him not agreeing with it, though I found his reasoning a little strange(that babies would forget to breathe while swaddled but that slings are ok), but I was shocked to hear him repeatedly putting down another LLL recommended book/author. Plus, he didn't really seem to talk about his topic much. He talked about circ, vitamin D and sunlight, tylenol and on and on but didn't seem to give a lot of ideas on "getting your baby to sleep". I like his book but was not impressed with his lecture at all.
As for the conference in general, I learned so much at some of the sessions. My mind is still going in 20 directions trying to take it all in. It was awesome!
