How many people out there believe Babywise is synonymous with cry it out? Probably the vast majority, right? Today Carrie is talking all about that. She is talking about what Babywise does say and what it doesn't say in regard to CIO.
"Every human being needs to learn how to self soothe and we all need to be able to put ourselves to sleep by ourselves. Is sleep training a part of this? Yes! Absolutely! Most babies are not born with this ability and need to be trained to do this. CIO is one way to do this, but it's not the only way. For my first three CIO, worked BEAUTIFULLY. If I rocked LK, she would just cry anyway. We did 2 nights of CIO and...she is still the best sleeper in our house. For Archer, for several reasons, we couldn't (because of room sharing) and just didn't WANT to CIO with him. We used the 4 S's (From Tracy Hogg's The Baby Whisperer) as our main sleep training method with him."
On the fence about Babywise because of the CIO idea? Be sure to read Carrie's post on it.
