I would not use the cry it out method until your baby is between 4-6 months. Eliana was around 4-5 months-- and we did it when she started fighting sleeping in our arms.

You put your baby down when your baby is sleepy, but awake. You say good night and leave. The first night you should leave them for no more than three minutes, five minutes the second time, and ten minutes from then on. Never more than ten minutes.
