Real Moms Talk: cry it out or comfort?

Your angel falls asleep in your arms and you delicately lay her down in her crib. She grunts and sniffles, you pat her bottom and whisper, “Shhhh.” She drifts off again… for 10 minutes.

We checked in with moms to see which they prefer — crying it out or comforting — and how they keep whatever they do consistent with real life.
