This can be a very touchy subject for people. I have never let my children cry it out. First off I had kids to be a mother and be there for them when they are in need. I understand why women let their child "cry it out" but personally I feel like Im doing my job as a mother when I am calming my baby and letting him know that everything is okay. Sometimes all they want is for mommy or daddy to comfort them. They need to know that mommy will always be there no matter what. My kids know this and now they never want me out of there sight lol
Don't get me wrong I love holding my babies but sometimes they just need to sleep!
Before we put this system into place my girl had terrible naps and was always irritable (though she was a good night sleeper). I feel like she's much happier now that she knows how to sleep well. Of course, some kids don't have any issues with sleep so they don't need to CIO. It all depends on the baby ;)
