I am a pediatrician, first of all. In my opinion, any pediatrician who advises letting babies cry themselves to sleep, or says that babies should be sleeping through the night at this age, should lose his/her medical license. It is perfectly normal for infants of this age to wake several times a night to feed. Also, the cry it out method is child abuse, pure and simple. Tiny babies need the security of mom's presence. If you let her cry and do not respond to her, you are teaching her that her cries do not matter and she will not learn to trust that this world is a safe place. Listen to your own mother's intuition (and not the "baby trainers") and respond to your baby when she cries. She desperately needs you and you will not spoil her. As the above poster mentioned, the cry it out method will eventually work, but at a great price. Your baby will learn that her cries don't matter, so she wll sadly not even try to connect with you after awhile. Furthermore, little babies were never meant to be separated from their mothers in another room, and in little cages (cribs). This is very stressful to them. Research proves this to be true. And then to add not responding to their cries? We Americans have got this all very wrong. Remember mom, it is very easy for someone else to tell you not to go to your baby when she cries for you, but you are the true expert on your child. Do what feels right to you. And remember, this stage, while inconvenient at times, will pass all too quickly. If you respond as nature intended, your child will learn to sleep on her own when it is age appropriate (ie not as an infant). Blessings to you and yours.
