I feel like every year there are less and less people doing CIO. Do you think it wil eventually be done away with?<br><br>
ETA: When I say CIO I mean just like they advocate it in certain books. You purposely put the baby to sleep by themselves in their own room to cry until they fall asleep. I don't mean in arms crying. I mean purposely deciding to not meet their needs and "training" them to fall asleep on their own by crying.

There's not a choice I could really pick. I doubt it will ever go completely away. There will always be some people who do it. But I do think it's less common than probably when we were all babies. A lot of my friends or moms in playgroup shyly admit to being reluctant cosleepers. They think that cosleeping is "spoiling," but they do end up bringing babies and toddlers into their beds instead of CIOing.

Sorry. I knew I would miss something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> When I say eventually, I mean even in a hundred years.<br><br>
That is wonderful to hear though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

i think it will have something to do with a news report/magazine article coming out about the long term effects of stress on little ones. unless it's framed in a way that CIO is bad for kids on not just the psychological but also the physical level, people won't really get it.<br><br>
people just have no clue on the negative health effects of cortisol, and how much it detrimentally effects developing brains and bodies.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I have no faith, I suppose that it is because I live around spankers and CIO people (on the base that is). One person I know will place her DS in a crib and let him cry for hours, like the other day she put him in for nap at 11am and he was still awake and crying at 2pm. . .it was so sad<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I don't see it going away. Our entire culture would have to seriously change. We value independence way too much and many people see CIO as just one of those things you have to do. You know, otherwise, you're kid will never learn to sleep on their own! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

From what I see, it's increasing. IRL and online I hear from people who say that it "has to be done." Very, very sad. At least I don't see that around here.

We live in a very self centered culture, and I dont see that changing, till it does I see many parents doing what is "best" for them and that includes CIO.

Nope. It will never go away. There will always be desperate sleep deprived parents willing to try everything and there will always be someone who will "swear" by CIO/Ferber.

I don't know if it will eventually be done away with...people will probably keep trying. Plus, parenting advice comes in trends, so I'm sure some expert will eventually decide it's a good idea again.<br><br>
We can always hope though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I think it will always exist but hopefully will be less common.

I don't think it will ever be completely "done away with," but I do think that its use is slowly decreasing and will continue to do so for some time.

The use of CIO is increasing, from what I've observed. Lots of people don't even know it's controversial <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed">

hmm. I chose the "less and less" option because I couldn't bear to think of all those crying babes wanting their mamas<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
