That's really sick. Almost as bad as the "shake your baby" app.<br><br>
Seriously. It was an app that you could shake your onscreen baby until red x's went over it's eyes. The idea of it really makes me want to vomit and I believe it actually got pulled/banned.

What kind of sick mind comes up with something like that. Why do people want to depend on technology instead of their instincts? I hope that is a joke app.

It amazes me the tenacity of people's misconceptions about normal infant/toddler sleep.<br><br>
As if CIO isn't bad enough, it really makes me ill thinking of people putting their nighttime parenting into the hands of some app created by some anonymous bozo. Wow.

I am somewhat encouraged by the few comments there were...no one said "OMG, what a great idea!"<br><br>
*sigh*

Wow! What a ridiculous idea!!<br><br>
I was hesitant to read the comments, but it appears most people were pretty against this! I am posting this to facebook to see what my friends' responses will be!

It's awful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> . It's a timer app to help with CIO:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">You program in your child's name and age (they also have a warning to not try this method on children under the age of 4 months) and the app sets a timer so you know when it's time to settle the baby. That is, if the little whipper-snapper is still crying.<br><br>
Ciao Baby automatically adjusts to the next settle time without you having to reprogram. Which comes in handy when you're sleep-deprived, can't for the life of you remember what the book said, and don't want to get up and go get the book -- you just want to lay down for five minutes (or 15, or 30 -- or however long the damn book says you should wait!).</td>

Horrid!<br><br>
The Ezzo philosphy pops up like a many headed hydra.<br><br>
Those that promote it should be ashamed of themselves.

This makes my blood boil!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hopmad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hopping mad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Cuss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cuss"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hammer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hammer"><br>
Of course, I left a comment. How sad that some babies are suffering with parents who rely on such gadgetry to dictate how they care for their little ones.<br>
Off to snuggle my sleeping baby now, in our family bed.

I must live in a different world, but who in his/her right mind would rely on an ap? Seriously. I wonder how "popular" this ap really is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
