From Because I’m the Mommy:
Here’s an interesting article in The Globe and Mail of Canada about a Penn State study that has shown that allowing babies to “cry it out” — also known as Ferberizing your baby — could actually be harmful.
It also says that the parents who want to cuddle their children to help them sleep — known as “huggers,” which is a noun I want to use to describe myself from now on — tend to be better overall parents.
Of course I’m going to like this study since I’m a co-sleeping proponent and it basically says I’m really, really smart and have been right all along.
What do you think about the study? Do you co-sleep with your kids? Did you use some form of the “cry it out” method, and did it work?
Here’s a link to one of my other posts on co-sleeping, too — just in case you’ve actually got 5 minutes to spare.
