Best friend and I parent differently.

My BFF of ten years has a baby 6mo older than mine. Her parenting type is to let the baby cry it out/ be super independent. I dont like crying it out at all... Every time we talk she tells me to let him cry it out. Im afraid our different ways of parenting will ruin our friendship.

I think you need to let her know that you have different ideas on parenting and while you appreciate her trying to help, you don't feel that CIO will work for you.
Maybe try not to discuss parenting issues while together, I know it's hard as a new parent but if you want to keep the friendship it may be the only way for now. As the children get older it will be easier.
