CIO, to me, is allowing the child to cry--even when in need--for the sole purpose of trying to teach the child to STTN.

I can't remember if it was Gracey or Evan (they were both still small children at the same time), but I think it was Gracey...anyway, she (if it was her) would start crying every single night for about 2 minutes. She was never fully awake though and I learned after trial and error that picking her up=fully awake, fussy baby...leaving her alone as long as it didn't last longer than a minute or 2=baby falling right back to sleep. I eventually could tell the difference in her cries & didn't have to wait to go pick her up if I knew it was an awake and in need cry.

Some may call that CIO, but whatevs.
