Re: Why do people pos on Facebook about...
Because believe it or not letting a child CIO is hard. Squelching your desire to run to them and rescue them the minute they make the smallest peep is difficult. I had a child who would not go to sleep without CIO. I tried other methods first cosleeping, holding etc... nothing worked. CIO was hard and it wasn't something I wanted to do but it was the only thing that worked for my son. While I never felt the need to brag about it I can understand why someone would because it takes a lot of fortitude to listen to the crying and not respond immediately. It is no different then bragging about breastfeeding or cloth diapering in my book because CIO is hard thing to do parent wise. Just because CIO isn't something you would do doesn't make it less of a parenting milestone for another parent.
