  • Yes it does mean cry it out. I think it is child abuse.

  • cry it out, it doesn't work for all children but sometimes is the only way to let the child go to sleep

  • The only time it is the only way to get a child to go to sleep is when the Mom, Dad or caregiver is too wrapped up in their life to rock the baby or put them to bed correctly.


    Would you like to cry yourself to sleep? I doubt it.

  • LOL! funny... if done correctly is a great way to teach your child to soothe themselves.
