I just wanted all of the moms who are undecided about the CIO method that it is OK. We spent so long bouncing our baby to sleep as he fought and fought sleep. We couldnt handle it anymore so CIO was a last resort. It is sad, yes...but i you can get through the first couple nights it does get easier. I am sure because I am posting this I am jinxing it, but our almost 5 month old has finally started sleeping through the night! He takes longer naps during the day also. The naps could possibly be a growth spurt but it could also be because he soothes himself better in his crib. CIO has made our evenings and nights easier. My husband and I can finally eat dinner together and are not arguing anymore about who is going to bounce him to sleep for an hour. Give it a try and be strong!! But it is also ok if you dont have the heart! This does not make us bad parents!
