I still rock my one year old til he is sleepy and then put him down (sometimes asleep, sometimes not). This process doesn't take more then 5 minutes. He sleeps thru the night 90% of the time. He sometimes gets up and i give him a hug/rock him and he'll go back down.
If you were to do cry it out, what do you do at night when they get up? Or do they more then often then sleep thru the night?
For people who did rock to sleep, when did you end this? Do you have any problems with your child going to sleep on his own now? Can you leave your two/three year old with his blanket/lovie and he/she will go to sleep?
This is just curiousity. So, please let's be respectful of others views.

We never did cry it out. My son is almost 2 and I really only have to rock him to sleep if he is sick or having a bad time teething. I usually lay down in bed with him and nurse him to sleep. Sometimes he'll just want to cuddle for a bit before he drifts off. I can't just tuck him in, turn out the light and leave, but it only takes me about 15 minutes to get him down so it doesn't bother me a bit. I guess some people would think this was too inconvenient but it works for us. :)
