I ended up putting Cole in his crib yesterday evening for a timeout so we could both calm down. He was screaming and crying and Mommy was about to lose it! So I put him in there, came back downstairs for about 2 minutes, took a couple of bites of my dinner, then went back and got him. He had calmed down to the sniffling stage, so he joined us back at the table to finish dinner. Then I thought about it...should I have/have not put him in his crib for a timeout? I don't want to make him scared of his bed. We have enough sleep/going to bed issues as it is! Then again, it was a place that would contain him and there would be a little bit of distance between us and the crying for a moment. I can't decide!! This was the first time we have done it. WDYT?
Anyone else use the crib, or any other arguments for not using it?
