How many of you let your children cry as babies and didn't pat or rock your child to sleep?
I used to let my children cry, if they were fed, clothed clean burped etc then I would let them go for it. They'd stop eventually, it didn't kill them. What are your thought's? A friend has a bub who she has cradled to sleep in her arms, didn't let cry and now has big problems getting the child to sleep, she says studies prove that letting your child cry is harmful for the child's emotional state as they grow older and it is a definate no no.
