my daughter is 9 months old and not once have i let her cry it out and trust me she has been fine. just today i received news that the brother of my sister-in-laws friend let his 5 month old baby cry it out.the babys parents had just fed her a 2 oz. jar of baby food and the baby apparently would not stop crying. so they took her upstairs to her room left her laying in the crib to cry it out and put herself to sleep. 30 minutes later they walked upstairs to check on her, and the baby was no longer breathing and had passed away. she threw up her baby food and choked up ofcourse bcuz she had been crying so long and yes, choked with food stuck in her throat. my heart is with this family ofcourse because no one deserves to lose a child. just please dont let this happen to your infant and understand that this is an infant who should never have to cry it out no matter how fed up you are...

They think it is ok because we live in a self gratifying nation. CIO is not about baby ever! It is all about the caregiver and their "need" for sleep, even though man (or woman) has survived since the dawn of time with the same lack of sleep. During this day and age there are way too many parents only thinking about themselves and putting their wants above the child's need. The fact remains that CIO can be harmful and deadly yet everyone wants to ignore this because it means they get to have what they want and it was "recommended" to them. Not to mention the 90% of CIO caregivers that have no idea what CIO truly is and how to implement it and continue to give advice on how to ignore your child's needs. Another wrench in the situation is the number of doctors that instruct their patients to implement CIO yet give no more information or help with the matter.
