Mamas on Bedrest: No Crying It Out!

October 16th, 2013

Hello Mamas!

Should you let your newborn “Cry it out?”

I seem to be surrounded by newborns! As you know, I am a great Auntie and my Grandniece is now about 7 weeks old. I just received an e-mail from a college chum that he and his wife just welcomed their first, a little girl, last week. And lately I am seeing articles that are discussing the “merits” of letting babies “cry it out”. I am just going to say up front, I am vehemently opposed to this practice in newborns and give a brief explanation here. I’ll give a fuller explanation with citations in my next written blog post. For now, Hug those little ones up!!
