I have always thought "crying it out" was what I was going to do to teach my son to go to sleep on his own. As I listen to him crying right now I'm not so sure. My mom said she was told by doctors when I was little to do it, and I have heard many people say they did it. They also said it was hard but helpful. I have also heard people very much against it, and I am wondering what else can I do. What have you done? What works/ doesn't work? Am I just being mean and selfish to be doing this? I would also like to hear why people think it is right or wrong.
