When is a good age to use this method if you want to use it? Feedback from parents that do use it plz.
NEVER!! If a child is crying they need something, they dont just cry for no reason. We are their parents what are we teaching them if we let them CIO, that if they need us, we dont care, sit there and suck it up! Its a stupid method!
Quoting Anonymous:I'm heartless I guess.
My kids it's my way from the day they're born.
They have a schedule from birth, my schedule. And yes, I do CIO with infants.
It's exhausting at first, but in a few short weeks its so much better for the kids. They, even as babies, learn our expectations as parents pretty quickly.
So, I do CIO from day 1!
I used it to get my son to sleep on his own. He was over a year old at the time. I do not think it is a good idea to use it with newborns. They cry because they need you.
I never needed to do it. My best friend did it, her daughter is 3 and to this day freaks the hell out as soon as it is time for bed. i never did it and have never once had an issue with bed time.
