hey everyone!!ok so i really enjoy this circle of moms thing!!its awesome ..especially when you relate so much to some other mommys!!but theres something that is bothering me and its just my opinion so i hope it dont offend anyone!!in some of the other groups i noticed alot of ppl beliece in lettin kids cry it out..i kno u shud not pick up ur child very quick if she or he cries but i dont think its good to let ur child cry for a long time..my daughter is 16 months n the first 3 months she was colic so she wud cry n cry n me n my bf wud have to jus hold her n sometimes wen we put her down she wud wake up n cry n we wud have to pik her up to rock her again..she was uncomfortable.i asked her dr if he had ne suggestions besides him reccommendin a great formula which helped alot (alimetnum)n other things he suggested he sed i cud try to put her down in her crib n leave the door half opened n if she cries let her cry for maybe 5 mins to see if she stops or falls asleep n if not then obviously i wud have to go int here n get her..but some of these moms will write how they let their kids cry for hrs n they feel bad but they have to let them..n im thinkin omg..i wud feel horrible if i left my daughter cryin for all that time besides that i wud be worried i wudnt want her to strain herself or think i left her..i kno bein a mom is very stressful but we jus gotta take everyday how it comes...n if that means one day they r cranky then so be it..n we gotta suck it up n deal wit it..there were so many times my eyes felt like they were guna fall out my head but i hada stay up if she was up..n if a baby is cryin nonstop n is already fed n changed n burped then somethin has to be botherinthem..how cud ppl jus leave their kids cryin?anyone wanaa add anythin...feel freeee..
