I agree with everyone on the early stages that you can't let them cry it out. However, crying for a few minutes because you can't get to them is not harmful. I talk out loud to the baby when she's crying and I can't get to her letting her know that I'm coming. i say mommy's coming, I am just....

I have however let my babies once they are much older cry out for a little longer, once I was sure they were fed, changed, and cared for completely...even snuggled them. I would never do it often, but I get the fact that sometimes you need a minute! But not till probably 9 months or so...
