But it didn't really have to do with the discussion. It wasn't about whether one should do CIO or not or how it might be harmful, but was the OP saying sorry for judging other mothers. A random statement about how CIO made her children clingy seemed like the poster was judging the OP for the very thing the OP was sorry about judging others for.

Good question. I can't imagine either.

I had a very different experience.
DS1 would not sleep so we tried CIO. The first night he yelled at me for awhile, the next night he mumbled something at me and started snoring. He was whiny/clingy but once he started sleeping really well, he was much less whiny.

All kids are different. My daughter can't go to sleep with out doing a bit of crying at night. It's like her method of self comforting. My stepson was always soothed to sleep as a baby and he's still super clingy every day. He's just a naturally needy kid, I think.

OP I'm glad you found something that worked. The concept of AP seems like a very effective method of child rearing, but we all need to make our own personal adjustments. I always thought I'd breast feed for years, but after about 11 months we both just needed our own space. In the end it's okay.

Re: To all the CIOers

We had the same experience. I have learned to say to myself that every baby and every family is different. My boy (10 months) gets too much stimulation from other people in the room. If we co-sleep, he wants to play, if we wait in the room with him, he wants our attention. If we leave the room, he now settles himself the second the door is closed more often than not.

Re: To all the CIOers

Thank you for posting this, OP. My 21 month old DS has never routinely STTN and has gotten progressively worse. We are going to try to let him CIO tonight.

I hate to do it but I'm starting to lose my mind from the lack of sleep. Remembering your success will be an encouragement to me at 2am.

Re: To all the CIOers

while i personally cannot do CIO i fully understand why some do! it works well for many babies there are so many things that parents do differently than other parents and its really up to each one how they raise their children. Some use binkies, some are against it, some use formula some dont. some let their babies become independant by self soothing (cio). i tried cio with my son a couple times and it led him to scream for hours where he would turn blue in the face, cough, and vomit. THAT is when it becomes cruel in my opinion and should not be used. however if my son fussed like many babies and eventually went to sleep AMEN! im glad you found something that works for you mamma (OP)
