cry it out method (piog)

I have an 8 month old who cries every time we lay him down in his bed. He pushes his bottle away and wont stop crying until we pick him up. I hate hearing him cry but i dont know how i can ever get him to sleep with him always crying when its bed time. I have not yet tried this method on him but I think I might have no other choice. I just can't handle the crying non stop and feel bad for him. He's 8 months old and wakes up multiple times a night and does this. I just need some advice on how old you started doing this? Or for the ones who don't do you have any tips to get him to sleep in his own bed? I really don't like hearing him cry but i can't even sit down for a few seconds with the way he's been lately.

You mentioned that he pushes the bottle away...I know some people let their kids have pacifiers but only at night.  What about that?  Also, the other question I have is do you have some kind of routine or do you just put him in bed when its bedtime?  Some kids just fight sleep.  You're not doing anything wrong and neither is he.  Supernanny, Jo Frost, has some good techniques for getting kids to sleep.  You might Google Supernanny and see if her website gives tips.

I started letting my dd's CIO at 4 months old. My dr.'s have always told me that by 4 months old that the baby should be sleeping through the night, and they shouldnt take a bottle in the night any longer. It will take some time for your baby to stop crying but he will eventually fall asleep and get use to going to bed and sleeping all night. GL momma

Yikes. I don't remember how old my daughter was when we had to use CIO. You could sit next to his crib or read or sing to him. Leave a toy in there? Switch up the bedtime routine until you fnd something that works? Best of luck to you, I'm sorry I'm not much help.

Good lord! My 3yo still nurses once at night. I can`t imagine a 4 month old not needing to eat all night long. Something doesn`t sound right there.

um since when is CIO neglect? As long as the baby is fed, changed, and burped then there is nothing wrong with it, therefor it is NOT neglect! Get off your high horse lady! Some of you ladies amaze me!
