I feel like some people on here so so judgmental and rude and are only out to judge and try to feel better about themselves as a parent. well i think thats pure insecurity and you need to check yourself. i am a 19 yr old mom, got pregnant at 18.. i come here for loving and careing advice and good answers, not disrespect, judgment and being downright mean.
anyways, to the woman who are calm, confident about there parenting ways and know some good techniques/answers, help me out please.
If everything is ok with my baby who is 6 months on the 12th of feb and she is well fed, bathed, temps not bad in the room, she has all her comfort around her and the stuff she needs, her diaper is clean, no gas etc. and it's time for nap and shes rubbing her eyes and i put her down lightly in her crib, she doesnt cry and is about to go to sleep but starts crying. how long should i let her cry for? i have never let her cry before.

You may feel that they're judgemental because they're disagreeing with you and it is a pain when someone disagrees with you when you were only trying to ask a question. However, understand the passion behind it. You're asking about a question that deals with "CIO" (crying-it-out) which some women are very passionate against. Some women would go as far as to say it is child abuse (I'm not one of them, I actually agree with CIO). If you honestly believe that something someone is doing is harmful to their child, you're going to be passionate about it right? They respond that way because they care about children. Maybe they could be nicer but just understand. CIO is a very touchy and controversial subject. I've found my doctor to be a wealth of information about sleep and self-soothing. You are your baby's own expert. Let her CIO and use your maternal instincts to tell you what is right. Good luck :-)

Just because you do not get the "just leave your child to cry until they pass out" does not mean the information given was not good sound educated advice. CIO is cruel and wrong on many levels. Have you tried or looked into any other methods? No cry sleep solution? Happiest baby on the block? etc etc CIO is the laziest and most damaging of all the methods please look into other methods before attempting something that could lead to more problems. Good Luck on your decision!
