Description

What is Ciao Baby Lite?

Ciao Baby is an app which can help people who want to use the "Cry It (all) Out" or "Controlled Crying" method to sleep-train their infant.

NOTES:

1) THIS METHOD IS ONLY RECOMMENDED FOR INFANTS WHO ARE AT LEAST 4 MONTHS OLD, PREFERABLY 6 MONTHS OLD.

2) MAKE SURE THAT YOU RESEARCH CONTROLLED CRYING PROPERLY BEFORE DECIDING TO USE THE METHOD. IT IS A CONTROVERSIAL ISSUE AND YOU SHOULD BE 100% HAPPY ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING BEFORE USING THIS APP!

What is "Controlled Crying"?

The aim of Controlled Crying is to teach an infant how to go to sleep by themselves, without the need of parental assistance (e.g. Rocking, pacing, or late night drives listening to "The Boss" play on the radio).

In addition to removing stress at bedtime, it can also help the infant to re-settle themselves if they wake up during the night - which means lots more sleep for everyone in the house!

How Does It Work?

The method is often thought of as just leaving the infant to cry for as long as it takes to go to sleep, but it's not that mean! Here's an example of how it works:

1) Prepare the baby (We'll call him Murray, because every third person here in New Zealand is called Murray) for bedtime.This can be a bath, massage, stories, cuddles, and generally calming down before it's time to go to sleep.

2) Put Murray in his crib awake (This is the important part, as it helps Murray get used to going to sleep unaided) and leave the room.

3) If Murray keeps crying, then return to the room after a short period of time (say 2 minutes), to gently pat and re-assure him (Without getting him back up) and then leave the room again.

4) Repeat this process with ever increasing periods of time between your visits to settle Murray. A simple method is to double the "Wait" period each time (e.g. 2 minutes, then 4 minutes, then 8 minutes etc).

NOTE: WE USED THIS METHOD, AND VERY RARELY COMPLETED A 16 MINUTE WAIT!

Is It Effective?

The method isn't for everyone, but we used it with both of our children, and they are now great sleepers. We frequently found ourselves about to get Murray (He's back to protect the innocent) up because we were sure that he wasn't going to settle, but after being distracted by something else for a couple of minutes we found Murray had actually gone to sleep. If we hadn't waited those extra couple of minutes, we could have found ourselves keeping Murray up for another 20 minutes, which would have made him over-tired (and harder to get to sleep), and us more stressed!

What Does The App Do?

The app controls which "Wait" period you are on, and displays an alert after it has completed, so that you know when it's time to go and re-settle your baby without having to watch the clock! It works by doubling the "Wait" time after each settle, but you can also set your own "Wait" time if you wish.

Other Features of the app:

- You must complete a checklist before you start. This forces you to think about whether there could be another reason why your baby is crying.

So far it's great but it's only the first night. Having the timer and the annoying but funny reminder when it's time to check on my baby boy makes the time go so much faster. If tomorrow night goes as smooth as tonight then the Gods have heard my prayers!

5/5 stars

Great!!!
