I think CIO only pertains to sleep training or self soothing. A baby crying while you dealing with an immediate need isn't crying it out - it's just life with more than one kid!

I'm not opposed to CIO (which I define as letting my baby fuss a few minutes at bedtime before going in to soothe. My kids have always had a fussy cry when they are just tired that sounds different to me than their "I have an ISSUE" cry.). Everyone has different limits and definitions I think, though. I'd never let my kid cry for a prolonged period without going to them.
