Will you be using the Cry It Out (CIO) method of sleep training? Will you be Ferberizing? Ferber method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I dont see anything wrong with letting the child cry for a little bit after putting them in the crib (but not too long, not sure I can handle 10 mins of crying). I think with my nephew I would let him go up to 5 mins and then go in and soothe. I need to do a little more research on this though.

We practice attachment parenting, so no crying-it-out for us. Pretty much all of my friends do it the other way though We're the oddballs.

With Dalton, he was a high needs baby. He would throw up before he would self-soothe. We did try CIO at first, because that's what Tim's family & mine said was "normal". But after he kept puking from crying, we decided we would go our own way.

yeah I won't let her cry for long, but if she stirs when I put her to bed I won't rush to pick her up. but I won't let her cry either. I can't stand crying babies/children I really can't. I usually do almost anything to get them to stop

We cosleep, so for me it's rolling over to make sure baby is ok. With Dalton and his milk interolance, he had stomach pains a lot as a baby. Even when swaddled it would still bother him, so I was in the habit of rolling over and massaging his belly whenever he fussed at night. It definitely helped keep him calm.

I'm really just hoping our next baby is not a high needs baby I don't know how I came up with the energy the first time around, and then I worked full time too.

I basically co-slept with L and C, but only after the first few months, I'm too paranoid at first.

This time, I dont know that I will. combo of my feather beds, mounds of pillows, the dog, L and C still come in from time to time, and it's got me all kinds of worried even at 3 + months. but her crib is rightthere, literally.

We may co-sleep (aka move her little protable sleeper into our room) but we wont bed-share. Its just not a good choice for us. Bf is not comfortable with it and our bed really isnt big enough for a baby in addition to us. He wont even let me bed-share with the dogs .

We'll also be co-sleeping but not bed-sharing It just makes sense to have her in the room with us at first! For one thing I can keep an eye on her to make sure she's okay (monitors don't do it for me), plus when she needs to eat in the middle of the night I can just reach over to get her, pop out a boob, and we're good to go xD So, since she'll be right there I don't see any reason to just let her cry if she starts.

When she moves into her own room and crib, I'll let her fuss it out if she needs to vent a little before sleeping, but if she starts really crying I'll go in and soothe her.

we sleep train early and that can involve CIO once all their needs have been met, we had to get militant when the twins came, otherwise I'd be dead right now. My four are wicked amazing sleepers right now and we attribute it to really good, early sleep training.

Maria... how did you sleep train? Is there a method or philosophy you used?

I plan on using the CIO method to a point, I wouldn't let him cry too long if it's not working. I won't start it until the baby is at least 4 months old though.

It's interesting to see what everyone's plans are! I hope we all connect again after the babies are here to see how it's going!
