    Not it is really called Ferber method. Obviously I do not agree with it.

  • Ummm... if they are fed, diapered and sheltered, there is nothing wrong with letting them cry a little bit. That's not neglect. CIO doesn't mean to let them cry for hours without feeding or changing them.

  • I agree with Layh41407. i would never let my newborn cry himself to sleep but after a certain point when you know that the child is old enough to realize that crying gets them what they want it's time to let them work it out when it's time to sleep. if they are fed, diapered, you let them know that you love them. you are watching them cry all over the house cuz they are tired but when you put them down all they want to do is get back up because sleeping i swear.. little kids treat it like the devil. time to cut some cords

  • Ferbering or Ferberizing, and it isn't JUST CIO.
