So today I let Kory cry it out.
It wasn’t nice for either of us and I won’t be doing it again.
I understand peoples reasons for doing it and it may work for some but it didn’t work for us, all it did was make Kory more upset and me feel terrible. When my child cries it’s because he needs me, I don’t then want to ignore him, to me all that’s showing him is that when he needs me I’m not there for him.
Kory is much happier now that I’ve given him a cuddle and let him settle down.
P.S. I’m not in any way saying that you shouldn’t let your child cry it out, if that’s what works for you – brilliant!
It just didn’t work for us.
