3. Is It Safe to Use the "Cry-It-out" Method?

In my experience, not only is it safe, but it's effective. Doctors do recommend that you wait until you can correctly identify your baby's cry. Once you know that this cry is to simply get attention, it's time to start showing your little one that they can actually survive without Mommy's constant attention. Start with only letting them cry for about five minutes before picking them up

. After some time, you can increase the time to ten minutes, and so on, until you get to the point where you don't have to go in there at all. It's hard at first, I'll warn you, knowing your baby is in there crying for you, and you're purposely ignoring him, but in time, you will be rewarded with a baby that only cries when they're in need at night, and let's you get a good night sleep! Trust me, it's worth it!
