Would you let your child “cry it out” to sleep?South Peninsula Moms2015-03-26T11:48:10+00:00 [poll id=”5″] Related 2 Comments By “cry it out” we don’t mean, leave them completely alone for hours at a time, just not “rocking them to sleep”. Allowing them to self soothe, knowing that you are close by! I have heard of some people literally leaving their baby to scream. Its heart renching. That child doesnt know what he did wrong to be “abandoned”. Sweat and getting sick from stress? Its too extreme: they took “crying it out” the wrong way. Comments are closed.
