This is in response to a previous post talking about whether to let their children cry it out or not. we use the cry it out self settling with our son he was really great sleeper till he got to about a year old then we have to start using it, mind you it was really hard at first but we didn’t leave him for too long and kept reassuring him it was okay and now took about a month but it was worth as he is almost 4 and we read him a book and he goes straight to sleep after we read a book together i know it doesn’t work for some people but sometime you do have to really stick at it no matter how much it really hurt hearing them cry as it is so much better for them – i know so parents who can’t leave their children’s room until they are alseep and if they wake during the night they have to sit in there for a hour or so till they are back alseep and they can sneak out!! i would hate to have to do that and i feel terrible for them!!
