Hello! Crying it out method ?

Is there a way to not let our LO cry it out? First time parents and that’s a lot to ask someone that is new to this. It’s been 9 months of short 30-1 hour naps maybe 3x a day and every 1.5-2 hours a night wake up. Are we just playing ourselves in thinking that he will just automatically switch to long naps and sleep mode? Is the cry it out method guarantee to ensure better longer sleep for all parties involved?! Thank you!


  • @Jacksdad Absolutely! CIO can be very hard to do, and it isn't right for every child/parent. There is no guarantee, unfortunately, but there are many gentle approaches that can work well too. Feel free to reach out to me and I can point you in the direction of some helpful resources! You can find my information in Melanie's original post on the "Ask Me Anything" thread here.
