A lot of parents wonder about what age it's okay to let their babies cry it out. The literature is not specific about this. There is no certain age when they say it's okay to let your baby cry it out. I think this is a good conversation to have with your baby's doctor because they can talk to you about your baby's health history, their overall growth, and talk to you about whether or not night feedings are still necessary. For example, if your baby was still really small then extra night feedings may be necessary and letting your baby cry it out wouldn't be a good idea. So the doctor can talk to you about your individual circumstances and if they give you the green light then crying it out has actually been proven to be one of the most effective ways to get your baby to sleep through the night. It usually takes about 4-7 days and it's really tough when you're going through it. I just did it with my son but ear plugs are a great thing. After their brains have kind of reset they'll stop waking up at night and even if they do wake up on their own they'll learn how to go back to sleep by themselves without you, which is great. So I do always recommend though to parents that they always check on their babies if they're concerned. You kind of know your child's cry. They may be crying because they're in need of comfort, in which case you'd feel like you can ignore it. But if you feel like your baby is in pain or sick or in danger for any reason then definitely make sure you check on your baby. For example, I was having this same conversation with my pediatrician and he mentioned that even him, a pediatrician, was letting his baby cry it out when they were young and ignored their baby when they had a raging fever. You always want to make sure they're okay. If all is well then you can continue to let your baby cry and again, after 4-7 nights their brain should reset and you should all be sleeping better after that. Good luck with everything and if you have any other questions for me feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and recommend us to your friends and family too.
Well you have explained all the things in detail, thankyou so very much. Before reading this post i was also in confusion about what should be the age of the baby to cry it out. But now i have come to know that there is no age limit. My child's doctor can better guide me because he knows everything about my child, her physical and mental health, her overall condition and development.
Very informative and interesting video. It is absolutely right that we should not let our babies cry. A new born or under six months of age infant should never be left to cry it out, even just a few minutes of time. They are so young it is their only way of telling us that they need something. Babies this young and older can suffer short and long term damages if left to cry it out too long or too often. This is very dangerous thing and we being parents should take care of this and should not let our baby crying. During their time in womb, babies hear, feel and even smell their mothers, so it's not hard to believe that they are attached right from birth. But as any adoptive parent can tell us, biology is only part of the love story. Young babies bond emotionally with people who give them regular care and affection. So, these two things are the integral part of a child's care. We being parents should give our full attention to our children because they deserve it.
"Hello ladies.Prolonged crying can increase the risk of SIDS. You raise baby's blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety... when they finally stop crying is because they are exhausted into sleep and increases the chance of sudden infant death syndrome The child becomes afraid and needy. They don't understand why they are alone and become anxious people. They are unable to trust their caregivers to come for them when needed. On the flip side, kids who cosleep with their parents tend to be more independent when they are ready to become so and have better relationships with their parents.Making your babies CIO really is sad because a lot of people don't seem to understand that touch and comfort are just as much of a need as food and warmth are for babies.Touch is so important for babies, hospitals actually assign nurses to cuddle babies without guardians, to support the baby's health, growth and development. Babies left without touch do not have as high of survival rates.
