I've been using the CIO method of sleep training since my DD was 4 months old. Sometimes she goes right to sleep with barely a peep. Other times she really cry's. I hate letting her cry in there. She might be scared, or just want to cuddle with her mommy. She 6 1/2 months now, so we've been doing this method for 2 1/2 months, but I still can't help but think that it's just wrong and cruel to do that to my little girl. What's everyone's opinio on this matter, That's the only time the entire day that she even cry's. I was just thinking that if she's always dependant on me to put her to sleep, then she'll never learn to go to sleep on her own. Any advise would be greatlly appreciated. Generally once she's asleep, however, she stays asleep. If she does wake up at night, I leave her alone, and she might fuss a few seconds,then go back to sleep by herself. It's just a matter of her getting to sleep whether it's for naptime or bedtime.
