let me say now i only do this if he won't be soothed.
I make sure everything is fine with him and then I put him in his crib and let him cry for 5 to 10 minutes depending on my stress level.
If he's still crying at the 10 minute marker i pick him up and let him scream in my arms until he falls asleep.
I'm just wondering what this method is since i do use soothing techniques and I don't let him cry all night.

You could also try music, or singing to him as you pat his back. or humming! until he falls a sleep. Even a binky/ He may not be hungry but just needs a binky to suck on until he falls a sleep. Swings are great! put him in a swing in the living room with you. OH you have to get him a rain forest thingy. OMG its the best in the world!! RAINFOREST CRIB TOY, NOT THE MOBILE.. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2455073 toys r us has them, tagrget and I think walmart even has them. This little boy I took care of for a while, I spoiled him with ours. Everytime I turned it on he laid down. Or when I would ask him are you ready to go lay down he would go get the rainforest thingy. I wish you the best with your little one.
