    cry it out method

    Advertisements
    Does anyone do this??

    I have gotten to the point where I can't do anything! Maddox wants to be held 24/7and I just can't do that anymore.

    I'm trying to just let him cry it out. He's changed, fed and burped.. But he's been crying for 10 minutes straight!

    Is that normal/okay?

    Maybe he has gas. Does he have a bouncy chair?

    at two months old, CIO is WAY too young. He needs your reassurance.

    I agree, is he gassy? He could be trying to fart.

    Until just last night actually I never let Carter cry for more than a few minutes. At his age Carter always wanted to be held, and a sling carrier was a lifesaver. It let me get things done and he felt secure and comfy. I highly recommend getting one. I have a hostlings.

    Dont feel bad putting him down for a few minutes to get some things done, but I wouldnt let him CIO this young.

    Well, I went in and shushed him and gave him his passie and covered him up and he went to sleep..

    I have a sling but it's like a sash kind and it hurts my back.. I'm ordering a Moby when we get paid tho.

    I didnt let Bailey start CIO until she was right at 6 months old. I mean I let her cry and fuss till a certain point before then.

    He is too young to CIO. Do you have a sling?

    Some babies just need to be held, enjoy it, pretty soon you'll be chasing after him.

    My rule of thumb is 9 months inside the womb, 9 moths outside of womb. At 2 months, babies still need to held close and know mom/dad is there.

    How is he too young? I don't have anyone here to help me do anything.. I'm by myself with virtually no family but m y busy in laws. I can not hold him 24/7..

    What's the difference between letting him cry while I do chores and letting him cry himself to sleep. But I spoke too soon anyway.. he woke back up.
