... of the time that he will not sleep in his crib and ends up with us all night. Like I said, I don't mind it and we tried the CIO method several different times, and to me, its just easier to give in when he's that upset. ... (3 replies)
... That is a common set of things to do, which are often misunderstood. Even Ferber is against letting a child cry for long periods of time alone. It's about routines and basic conditioning. He has an updated book as well. ... (11 replies)
... In my personal opinion, and this is just me, but letting them cry for that long is not a good thing. I also do not believe in the Ferber method, andwould be upset if my ped recommended it to me. BUT that it just me and everyone has to do what works for them. ... (14 replies)

... I have also adopted the method of "Crying It Out". But we only do this for his bed time. ... (7 replies)

My husband did go in at 5 minutes but then Liam started sucking his little hand at 8 minutes and was out like a light at 10. ... (9 replies)
... The key is consistency, so stick with whatever method you start for at least a week. If you're not consistent, it will take him a lot longer to catch on to what you're trying to teach him. ... (9 replies)
... I believe it's hazardous because it seriously jeopardizes a babies sleep, which is imperative to their physical and mental development. Like MJcota said, Ferber dictates a schedule, which by the 7th day, leaves a child screaming for as long 45 minutes. ... (14 replies)
