I know many parents do the cry it out thing. I however will not until he is able to actually calm himself (sleep all night). At 1 month or 2 months they are still testing you and trying to see if you will comfort them when needed. Babies cry for a reason, yes sometimes to just be held. How busy are you that you cant comfort and hold your baby ?
Luckily for Rumi, I am here 24/7. He never needs to stress bht hw also can sleep alone and relax alone. I spoil him, but he actually hasn't become too spoiled !
An article I read stated" "Babies don't stop crying bevause they soothed themselves. They stoppes crying BECAUSE THEY REALIZE YOU ARENT COMING." How sad is that. They stop bc the realized nobody cares. We dont let our bestfriends cry , or our family. So why this little helpless human, whom the only way they can call you is to CRY. It also has been found that letting babies become independent and cry it out, have trust issues for their life.
YES I UNDERSTAND BY LIKE 6 MONTHS OR 1 YRS, THEY CAN CRY IT OUT.
