Do you let your baby cry it out?

February 28, 201738 min
Did someone tell you that you’re spoiling your baby by responding to every cry? Don’t listen to that person. Listen to Dr. Darcia Narvaez, professor at the University of Notre Dame in the psychology department. She says babies don’t have ulterior motives. They’re babies. If you let your baby “cry it out,” you’re teaching her to give up on you. Darcia's alternative? Keep cuddling until your baby makes it clear she's had enough!
