my son is 4 months old, and is starting to have trouble sleeping. he used to sleep 6 hours, wake up to feed, then go back to sleep for 3 hours. now he wakes every 2 hours, and he wont eat so i know hes not hungry. he wont fall back asleep in his crib, i have to hold him, then when i lay him down he screams. im kinda nervous about letting him cry it out, im afraid i wont be able to do it. is 4 months too early to let him cry?? is there another way i can help him sleep on his own??

Way to young for CIO!! "Parents should recognize that having their babies cry unnecessarily harms the baby permanently," Commons said. "It changes the nervous system so they're overly sensitive to future trauma." from http://www.hno.harvard.edu/gazette/1998/04.09/ChildrenNeedTou.html
"The early stress resulting from separation causes changes in infant brains that makes future adults more susceptible to stress in their lives"
