Do you mean the age you leave them to cry to sleep or the age they will just do it because they are overly tired? My son is 4 months old and has cried himself to sleep when there's nothing else I can do, but I don't just leave him to do it. I try to fix whatever the problem is. My DD though we let CIO at 10 months because she was getting up 4 or 5 times a night.

Your baby is only a month old? You are in for a long haul if this is the attitude you already have. A child at this age NEEDS, in everyway, to wake during the night. CIO is something that you need to read into further because if you are even contemplating it now it makes me wonder if you know what CIO is. CIO does not mean leaving baby to cry until they fall asleep. CIO is a sleep training methods with 'rules' and 'procedures' to follow. Please do a bit of research and enjoy the time that you have with baby now. Sleep is a developmental stage reached in baby's own time. Forcing the matter only complicates things further.
