I have heard alot about the cry it out method. I think that its stupid but that's just me. It states that you are to leave a newborn so that they can learn self soothing.... Also it can lead to the child being spoiled.
When can a kid get spoiled if not as a newborn?
Did you allow your child to self soothe or did you spoil them? I spoiled mine.

My mother in law ranted and raved about how I was going to "spoil" my newborns by not doing the cry it out method. I listened to her with my first born because I had never been around babies period and I wasn't going to be so "know it all". I tried it for a while but everytime he cried, I cried. I couldn't stand to hear him cry. With my 2nd child, I picked her up whenever I felt like it, disregarding everything my mother in law said, and she was the most content baby I've ever seen. She didn't cry and always seemed very happy. With my 3rd I did the same thing. I cuddled damnit. She was laughing out loud at 3 months. She wasn't "content" unless one of us was holding her but she was extremely happy. Now I am on my 4th child and I will be cuddling again!
