I was 19 when I had my son , and everyone told me to let him cry it out. Now I am tottaly regretting not!
I currently watch a 1 year old little girl ( just turned 1 last month) and have been watching her since she was 3 months. Now I had worked in day care for 4 years and know that once a child hits age 1 they only take one nap a day. Well with this little girl, she gets tired around 2 or 3 and I let her go to sleep. Just today her mother told me to try and keep her up, because last night she was up at midnight running around. Well, I felt like saying "let her cry it out!". But I know it's not my place to say that. I know some people think it's cruel, but after all I've been through with my son, ( he didnt go to bed on his own til he was over 3! and would get up every couple of hours!- now at age 4 every now and then he still gets up !) . Once a child knows they can get away with things, they will continue to do it. - That's another thing I learned with my son!..
So how do you feel about letting your baby cry it out?
