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?

Having a hard time finding kids bedding!

I have looked everywhere for kids bedding! It's becoming pretty frustrating because I feel like the options are either dinosaurs for boys or princesses for girls. I want something neutral where it's not so gender related. Where could I find something like this? Target, Walmart, and Macy's are definitely not an option, which I thought they would be.

Does anyone else hate the Ferber method?

Moms, am I the only one of us who HATES the Ferber method? I feel like an awful person and I feel so guilty sitting there while my daughter cries. Please tell me I’m not alone.

Co-sleeping: pros vs. cons!

My son has been having a lot of trouble with sleeping at night. He’s almost 12 weeks and it takes us hours to get him to go to sleep. He falls asleep fastest when my husband or I am with him. I know co-sleeping gets a pretty bad rep, but is it really that bad?

I can't handle the Ferber method!

My 8 month old wakes up every 2-3 hours and it’s making me insane. Has anyone else failed at the Ferber method? I don’t know what to do.

Tips for keeping overnight diapers from leaking!

My toddler keeps leaking through his diapers every night. They’re completely soaked and they soak through his PJs and blankets, as well. Does anyone know of some good overnight diapers or other things they’ve done to deal with leaky diapers at night?
