So today I let Kory cry it out.
It wasn’t a nice experience 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 like a terrible mum. In my mind, when my child cries it’s because he needs me, I don’t then want to ignore him, to me all that’s showing Kory 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.
Have you or do you use the ‘cry it out’ method on your child? Was it for you? How did you find it? Did it work? Let me know in the comments…
