BBC News is reporting that letting a baby CIO harms babies' brains. YAY!

I was really glad to see this, but I don't think it will make much difference, sadly. Some parents really buy into the idea that your LO will never learn to sleep if you don't do some type of sleep training. Now if Ferber or Weissbluth came out and said this then maybe some people would take it more seriously.

I thought Ferber did say that CIO isn't good after all.. I'm pretty sure my doula told me that.. maybe she was mistaken!

He modified what he had originally written. He used to say you should let a baby cry for limitless amounts of time and then retracted that to say no longer than 15 minutes at a time.

Yeah, I know a few parents that have seen him for consultations and they have all said he is completely respectful of them and never tells them to do anything they are uncomfortable with. So maybe he's a little more gentle now, but until he comes out and says explicitly not to do CIO, I think parents are still going to do it. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he seems to have softened his approach, but I also think he is one of the reasons CIO is so pervasive.

ETA: I don't mean to minimize the importance of this latest book speaking out against CIO. I think every "professional" that speaks out against it can only help. I just think we have a long way to go before we see around the clock responsiveness become the norm.
