DEPENDS

if she in crib middle of night let her cry for 5min or so if not back asleep check to see if needs bottle diaper change exc. but in daytime she fight sleep bad and can't even lay her down so in day time I let her cry a little longer. It took me awhile to get to the point when could let her cry at first picked her up at any little noise she made but as she growing I can tell most times if it's a I need something cry or not. but it can be hard to let them cry as mother my natural reaction was pick her up hold her but self soothing is important for them to learn.

    Alivia makes "noise" at night, sometimes 3-4 times a night. Usually (from what I can tell) it's just dreaming. Anytime I hear any intelligible words, I go check and make sure she is ok, but as long as it's incoherent, and doesn't last more than 10 mins, I let her work it out. She's quite good at it, and has learned if she stands at the foot of her crib and says either 'pass' for passy or mama, i'll come help her. she mostly just wants a hug and will lay right back down.
