A new study recently published in the journal Pediatrics says that it’s okay for parents to use “cry it out” methods to get their babies to sleep at night. The debate has been out on whether or not “cry it out” sleep training methods cause psychological damage
Great article! I don't personally believe in cry it out but I'm glad to see that they are saying if you do it to still be comforting your baby. I hope people don't just read the headline or first paragraph and stop there though, because "hardcore" cry it out is a bit different (where parent puts child in room, leaves, and lets them cry however long it takes for them to fall asleep.) My neighbor's baby died from getting overheated while being ignored for over an hour to fall asleep. They thought the baby had finally fell asleep, but that wasn't the case That is very different from the popular methods mentioned in this article, though.
I still don't believe it. Babies cry out of instinctual need. They're trying, desperately, to tell us, I shouldn't be sleeping alone, it's not natural. Check this out http://www.drmomma.org/2012/09/the-dangers-of-crying-it-out.html
