  • I'll get shit for this, but we let my daughter CIO starting at around 2 mos. We always checked on her and comforted her and it worked. She is the happiest, most smiley baby and I really don't think she deals with any 'abandonment issues,' especially at her young age. We got her to sleep in her crib, in her own bed that way.

  • we started with my daughter at 6 months. She had always slept in her own bed but I put her down alseep. If you need a GREAT book for some adivce the "sleep easy solution" made things so easy for us. It had the best plan I have ever seen for cry it out. Good luck! She was laying down and going to sleep without a fuss in 8 days.
