What do you think about this?
Do you/have you used the CIO method?

I tried it one time but really felt bad I didn't even last a minute. So I decided not to use it.

I guess I did cry it out. It was or a few minutes she never feel asleep crying but if I was busy with something she cried till I could get to her.

Babies should not be "crying it out." However, my four-year-old can. He has more of an understanding at this age, unlike a six month old who has no clue.

I never used it because it seemed mean.

I never did that. What does an infant know? That's just mean.

It doesn't surprise me that it stresses them out, there was an article a few weeks ago about how it can cause other issues as well. I personally can't stand to hear my children cry and not go to them. It seems cruel to allow a baby to cry when they need to be comforted. They don't understand why no one is responding to their cries.

There is evidence against and for everything it depends on your child..We used the method as a last resort and it turned out that all he wanted the whole time was to be laid down he would fuss for about 30 seconds and then be out like a light he slept better and longer. It sure beat trying to rock a screaming infant for 2 hrs. There is no right and wrong way to parent (other then the obvious to beat or kill your kid) not one thing works for every child.

I have and will continue, he's 15 months old. he doesn't cry a lot, the only time he ever "crys it out" is bedtime or nap time, and its usually no more than 5 minutes before he's asleep. He is probably the happiest and most loving child I've ever seen!

I think it's mean for an infant to cio. A toddler is a different story
