Of course it is NOT for everyone and that is FINE. I have said it throughout the thread, this is not about dissing AP parenting at all.
Again, it was about Peaches wrongly pigeon holing CC as unnatural etc. About implying that anyone who did/does it just shoves their baby in their cot cos they dont give a f...
That offended me.

Hell, my son was standing holding onto the baby gate and let go, I was excited so I took a pic... as I was about to take the pic he lost his balance and fell hitting his head on the tiles. I felt awful, because I was taking a pic I couldnt catch him and stop him from hurting himself. But thankfully millions of people didnt make me feel even worse for my mistake.

I think one of the reasons people tend to merge the two terms is bc parents that clearly use CIO try to make themselves and others feel better by saying it's CC. I know someone that was lecturing me about the wonders of CCing and how it's not CIO.... while her 12mo screamed until she puked for 2 hours straight.
I do think there is a difference between the two. But I don't agree with either. It goes against every maternal instinct I have (note I said my, I can't speak for others). Children cry for a reason. I had a son that woke literally 8-10 times a night for 9 months so I totally get sleep dep, it's hell. I still couldn't do it and even cancelled an QEII inpatient stay bc they promoted CC.
And I do see the reverse of people attacking AP. Imagine in my (regular ) annoyance at the judginess ffers cop, I said bfing was disgusting or some other negative thing. I'd be beaten with sticks.

Yes the irritable, whingy cry which I find it the tired cry, I understand parents going in every few mins to settle then walking out. It's when a child is clearly upset that tears at my heart. I'm trying to tread lightly, I just cannot support CIO or CCIng when the child is beyond that whingy tired cry.

This thread sounds like it's evident that a lot of parents DO leave babies to cry in a room alone, whether it's the correct technique or not. This kind of CIO or CC is probably the type that Peaches is talking about and given by a few posts on here, it's not rare.
I don't doubt that there are very gentle versions and I'd hazard a guess this isn't what Peaches was referring to.
