I am not really sure what all the other options are that you use or consider NOT CIO. I let my children CIO and I am not asking for advice, facts on either side or what not. I am their mother made the decision just want to know if you let them CIO how long did it take you to have them sleep in their own bed. For those who didn't what did you do and are they in their own bed and how old are they. I am just trying to get a feel for everyone on the site. Every parent has their own way of doing things and I am not saying one is right over the other. Just curious. Thanks in Advance.Answer Question

I'm a co-sleeper. My son is 20 months old. From day one, I realized he wasn't one of those babies that fall asleep easy. You know how you see pictures of babies that just fall asleep in their high-chair or any other strange spot? Nope, not my son! I had a bassinet next to my bed and he used it a handful of times. Sleep was better accomplished when he was next to me. There were days when I rocked him to sleep, simply laid next to him or nursed him to sleep. There were times when I could place him on the bed and he'd play around for a bit before drifting off into sleep. At about 16 months, I could put him to sleep and leave the room without him waking up until it was the next morning.
