Cry it out?
I need opinions! Do you let a newborn cry it out? There are times when Cambria has been fed, swaddled, kissed, bounced, held, and given her acid reflux medicine and she still screams and screams. Do I lay her down and let her cry or is she still too young for that? They say you can't spoil a baby, but can I enable her to not learn how to self- soothe? I think self- soothing is an important skill to learn for the future, but is it too soon? She doesn't even have a concept of what she's doing or that she's driving us nuts. And how long do you let her cry? Cry it out or not?
