Cry it out method - does it even work?

I’m having trouble embracing the CIO method with our 4-month-old. Both my mother and mother-in-law swear it’s the best way to get a baby to fall asleep faster and sleep through the night sooner. At this point, my husband and I are getting desperate for more sleep and I know our baby needs it, too. Is it really the best thing to do, or can it be stressful on the baby?

Should I go back to work or be a stay-at-home mom?

I was working in the service industry before my daughter was born, but she is about five months now and I still haven’t gone back to work. My husband has assured me that he can support us and I don’t need to go back to work if I don’t want to. I can’t decide if I should go back to work or be a stay-at-home mom though. I miss my job a lot, but I think I might feel guilty working when I could be spending time with my daughter instead. Any SAHMs or career moms who can give me some advice on this?

Is it okay to post pictures of my toddler on social media?

My daughter’s first birthday is almost here and I’m starting to wonder whether or not it’s appropriate to share photos of her on my social media. Most of it is public because I had never cared much about the privacy of my own photos before. It’s mostly just my friends who follow me I think. Most of my friends post pictures of their families. Do you think it’s okay to post photos of my children on social media, especially if the accounts are public?

Breastfeeding vs. Formula?

I’m a brand new mom and after all of the books I read when I was pregnant, I had decided I wanted to breastfeed my son when he was born, but it’s so hard for me. It hurts and we’ve been having a lot of difficulty with him latching on. What are your opinions on breastfeeding vs. formula. Is it really that bad if we don’t go the breastfeeding route?

How do you like Pampers Overnight diapers for your little ones?

Pampers overnights are amazing! I think that they are very absorbent and definitely get the job done. But I was wondering if anyone has other options that they use that are cheaper? I'm trying to save money!
