Smh. You should change your life to fit the babies schedule or not have kids.

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!

We kind of let DS CIO, but he was like 14-15 months old. Depends on the baby really, and their needs.

I agree with this.

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!

I don't think there is anything wrong with putting a newborn in the crib and letting them cry if you need to calm down. My son had severe colic for the first 5 months sometimes (rare but I did) let him cry for 10 minutes. However the CIO should not be used until after 6 months at least.


Quoting parentalrights1:

Don't do it to newborns for sure. They have to at least be emotionally ready and able to understand you aren't just not giving a shit but honestly I don't feel that hapens in the first year. But you can do the whole "let them cry a few minutes, soothe, cry a few, soothe" on an older baby in sure, but still never a newboen

I never used it. 

But I believe around 8 months or so should be ok if you truly want to do so.

That's really sad. Why did you have kids if you feel this way?

My babies were born 22, 19, and 6 years ago.


I think we just come from a different time. I was raised that the kids didnt rule the parents lives. I raised my kids that way too,

These days it's a whole lot more coddle and a whole lot less kick in the pants.

Not saying your way is wrong. But mine worked for my brood just fine!

My DD22 refuses to CIO with her DS. I have to let her make her choices. BUT, I think CIO was the best thing for my 3, at the times they were babies.

My 80 year old grandmother says the same thing. She would put her kids to bed at 8 and leave them until 7 the next day. I wonder if she even did night feedings.
Setting a newborn to a schedule is outdated and leaving a newborn to cry all night is harmful.

Now I never said I did that.

I got up every 2 hours to check on/feed/diaper/hug/kiss my babies.

If they were up and needed me, they got their needs met.

Then it was back to CIO until the next 2 hours were up.

Our daytime routine was different.
