I don't do it, but don't bash those who do.  I don't know, however, what we'll do once this baby comes next summer. I still hold my son until he falls asleep and then bring him to his crib.  It usually only takes about 10 minutes, but it's our routine and with a new baby coming, it will have to change.

NO!! when babies cry they are crying for a reason and they depend on you to take care of what they need. until my child can do stuff for herself she will not be cio-ing

I'm new too and I found out that dh means like dear or darling husband, ds dear or darling son, and dd is dear or darling daughter.  i think cio means cry it out.  not 100% though on cio.

Never.

We didn't use it for our daughter, who is now 8 years old, and we aren't using it for our 6 month old son now. Children are not manipulative creatures, when they cry they need something... even if it is "just" a cuddle. I could never deny my child comfort just so that I can get a little extra sleep.

I am a Private School sending, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Homework Helping, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mum. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child - I will do that, Thank You. I believe that a woman's place is in the home taking care of her house, children and husband. I am submissive and proud, my husband is head of my home. I am a proud, traditional Roman Catholic, as is my husband... Yes we are teaching our daughter that The Church is the only Church.               Aimee

OK if your child is fed, changed, bathed & burped there is no reason they can't cry for a little while  Just my opinion
