I attend to my child every day when he cries but how do you suppose a baby is going to learn it’s bedtime if you constantly come to their aid? If he’s fed, diaper is changed, and it’s bedtime I believe and my pediatrician believes it’s absolutely fine to let him cry it out.
He ended up crying for 30 minute and hung out in his crib on his own. Then he fell asleep. I’m confident that I’m raising an independent baby that knows I’ll be there when he needs him.
There are so many healthier and safer alternatives to the cry it out method! :) it’s completely normal for babies to wake through the night well into toddlerhood. Our pediatrician said CIO can have many long term negative effects, emotionally and mentally. We’ve never used the CIO method on my son, and he falls asleep on his own for nap and bed time! :)
That’s a great link De! I Co sleep. And I’ve never allowed crying it out for any reason. Especially sleeping. And Mason knows when it’s Naptime and bedtime. With no problems :)
