    How do you feel about letting baby "cry it out"?

    Can I have a bite?

    I don't have a problem with it. When DD was smaller I would chack to make sure there wasn't any reason for her to be crying (wet, hungry.....) If she was just tired or cranky then I just let her cry, it never lasted longer than a few minutes.

    I didn't let Nora CIO when she was really little. Now I do, otherwise she thinks it's time to get up and play!

    We did with DS1 when he was around 11-12 months. His sleep started regressing and he was getting up around 4, so something had to be done. With DS2 we started letting him CIO around 8 months because he was still getting up 1-3x a night when he really didn't need to. He just wanted to comfort nurse and it was getting old really fast!

    I'm all about the CIO concept however I'm never able to lay there and listen to the kids crying. Zayne is 18 months old and sometimes will wake up crying in the middle of the night and I can only handle him crying for 5 minutes or less and then I run up and get him.

    I'm all for CIO. Although, both of my babies never needed to. They were good at self pacifying themselves. They were both Thumb Suckers, so they went to bed alright. They always slept better in their cribs.

    I think every baby and every situation is different. There is a time and place for CIO, I believe.

    Yes. A CIO method worked for my son, doesn't mean it will work for my next baby.

    I'm hoping my next baby is magical and sleeps 12 hours/night right from the get-go! LOL!!!

    I'm not a big fan, but I also have no support at bedtime so if the crying were to get too much for me I have no help to deal with it or give me a break if it is too much for me
