Genuinely out if interest is it CC or CIO if baby is left to scream ( not whinge) in their room on their own, till the basically cry themselves to sleep? This is the main kind i have seen. Is that what CIO refers to?
Totally different than putting baby down awake and letting them whinge at say 2-5 minute intervals when you go back in to reassure.
CIO and CC are completely different. There are heaps of threads on BH that go through the difference. How embarrassing for her, being that ignorant in front of the whole world.
CIO is just that. They are put in their room, parents close the door and no amount of crying makes them go in.
CC is where they cry, the parent goes back in pats etc then walks back out. Then they continue to do that increasing the length of time in between going in.
KG - I don't need a sleep program to educate me lol parenting has become so saturated with 'experts', 'programs' and rules to children. IMO people have forgotten to listen to their instincts and their children in favour or what some woman tells them to that is making mega bucks out of parent's desperation.
I dunno. I did CC with the twins, because their sleeping was all over the place. The proper kind. Not the leaving them to cry and shutting the door kind. The one minute, go and give them a pat on the bum, 2 minutes go and give them a pat on the bum and so forth. I didn't CC with my last, cuddle him to sleep, went to him every time he whinged etc, he is 2.5 and by far my worst sleeper out of the 4 of them. The twins are amazing sleepers.
