Re: What is "Cry It Out"?

I guess CIO for me is a nap/bedtime thing when I think about it or hear people talk about it. I have 3 kids, soon to be 4, so it's unrealistic to think that none of my kids will EVER cry for more than a few minutes before I can get to them. Sometimes you do have to put your baby down to use the bathroom, or just have a Mommy Time Out. To me, that isn't CIO, if it's just for a few minutes or so. And we all know that even babies that are held will sometimes still cry
