This probably belongs in the sleep thread but I wanted as many opinions as possible. For those of you who did the modified CIO or whatever it's called where you check in and comfort LO at 5 minute intervals (or whatever time lapse you pick) do you stick to the clock pretty closely? I ask because LO is currently in the midst of her 5am wake up and I'm trying CIO with 5 minute check ins but she seems to keep somewhat calming herself (but then getting worked up again) so I keep holding off on going in because it sometimes seem like
I work her up more by checking on her. But the last thing I want is her feeling like I abandoned her. Ugh. I hate it all.@Kandreas1
what did you do when you were crib side? I remember you saying LO got worked up when you touched him too.
