I'm not a huge fan of CIO either, but seriously, if that's what it takes to make everyone healthy and happy, including your baby who is probably also suffering from lack of sleep, then so be it!

I agree. I am also not a fan of it, but I have two daycare kids that we did this with, and it worked in less than a week. We did it for nap and nigtht time.

I did cry it out. (scream until your head explodes) recently, and it was AWFUL!!!! But, it took one day. Seriously, one day, and now she sleeps fine. I have absolutely no idea why it worked. It shouldn't have, but it did.
