Quoting [[Breezy]]:" I mean, that's not really true. There is always an alternative for laying a baby down and letting her ... [snip!] ... Obviously you'll never know, but she could very well have fallen asleep in your arms had you rocked her for that 10 minutes. "
Yea, I wish you could have seen it. It actually seemed like the more I tried to get her to calm down, the worse it got. I don't feel bad for it now that I look bad, but then, it was just frustrating because you kind of feel hopeless. I think later on, we did CIO when she was 10-11 months, because at that point, we knew she was taken care of, but was overly tired and fighting sleep, and she's not the type to require someone laying next to her, because that'll only keep her up longer.
