It depends. I could always tell by the cry, what was bothering her. Baby's learn almost immediately that crying gets them attention. After about 6 months, i could tell what type of cry meant what. Sometimes she would cry because she was tired, i usually would let her cry it out then because she would be asleep shortly anyway. Also, the first poser was kind of right. If you go to her every single time she cries, then she will learn to manipulate w/ crying. It's always good to at least wait a lil bit, depending on what the problem is so that they know your not going to bow down to them every time they whine. I think it's OK to let them cry it out, but if they are crying for a LONG time, i think it can do more harm than good.

It's one of those things that work for some but not for all. If you don't want to do it then don't, no one is forcing you. I don't see the logic behind a lot of parenting techniques but I don't really care because if I don't want to do it, then I don't. I don't care why other people raise their children the way they do, because it has no effect on me.
