I started writing this in the "I am" thread however thought I may cause offense so brought it over here.
Absolutely horrified reading a post and the subsequent comments on Facebook. The original post was a mum asking how long CIO takes to work as she's let her son cry for the last 60 minutes. All these other mums are responding with "good on you for persevering", "show him who's in charge", "he's just pulling at your heart strings" then the OP commented and said "it worked, he's finally asleep, sobbing in his sleep, but asleep!" And the other women are congratulating her for not cuddling him. I knew I wasn't comfortable doing CC or CIO with my own child but I can't believe how sick reading that has made me feel. I want to rock and cuddle and sing to that little boy for hours if that's what he needs to go to sleep. I try so hard not to judge other mums because I don't know what they're going through or how their baby sleeps but surely their mum instincts are SCREAMING at them to pick that baby up and give him the love he needs!
