The definition of CIO differs a bit, depending on who you ask. But most Moms agree that leaving your baby alone to cry himself to sleep (and never checking on him) qualifies as “crying it out.” And for many Moms, this is terrifying. Admittedly, a lot of parents get quick results with this method. But let me reassure you, you don’t have to do CIO to teach your baby to sleep well.
I’ve written about it before, about how tired I am, and why co-sleep even tho we said we’d NEVER. I’ve shared a compilation of the flat out best baby sleep tips out there. There is just a whole lot that can be said about baby sleep. And none of it actually makes those wide awake 3 am hours (and hours and hours) any easier.
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
