i just joined the board earlier tonight and didn't realize the entire difference between these two. when i read about Ferber in a parenting magazine, they made it sound sononymus with CIO. i thought the Ferber method sounded fantastic and used this with my daughter but mistakenly thought it was a different version of CIO. i have been reading posts on this board and feeling terribly guilty having thought that i did the right thing, then tonight thinking i did the wrong thing. i was so relieved to find that these two are for the most part separate things.
anyways, the entire point of my post was to ask this: how do you feel about the Ferber method? and also, did all of you realize the distinction between it and regular CIO? i think the only reason that i didn't was because of how things were presented in the magazine i read...
