A new study has come out saying letting your child cry themselves back to sleep is actually beneficial for them. The self-soothing method has been an object of controversy among parents, probably since the beginning of time.  Mom says "Go pick him up", Dad says "She's gotta learn somehow."  (Painting with a broad stroke there, obviously.)

If you're a new mom, what's your take on it?  Also, you may find this article handy....on how to get your baby to sleep. :)

And if you're a more seasoned mom, do you have any advice for parents on this issue?

I know when DJ gets out of control and irritable, she goes in a time-out in her crate for a few minutes.  But I'm relatively sure that's not good human-parenting....
