Does CIO work for you? I used to say I didn't want to try it, but I have been lately and it doesn't work. My LO will stand up in her crib and scream for ever. How can I get her to not stand up and just lay down and comfort herself?Answer Question

We were forced to use the CIO method when my daugther was about 3 1/2 - 4 months old. She'd fall asleep in our arms or sleep on our bellies but would alway wake up whenever we put her down. We tried everything and nothing worked. After 2 weeks of sleeping in the recliner with her we decided to do CIO. It worked eventually but it took almost 2 - 3 months before she stopped crying at bedtime. Started at 30 minutes-up to 90 minutes (that was my cut off at that point I'd go back in calm her down and start all over), after 2 months it started getting shorter. At 6 months she started going down at bedtime a lot better. It was like the lightswitch just went on in her head because it was literally an overnight switch. Now she lets loose a couple of squawks until we're out of sight then she rolls over and sometimes plays awhile or just goes to sleep.
