How old was your LO when you started to kinda respond later at their cries to help self soothing? Like they are fed, changed, burped, but just bored I guess? Crying to be held and for attention.

If they cry to be held, I hold them.
My kids are 16 months and 2.5 years and I'm still pretty quick to respond to their cries.

I was thinking that was a good age, not making them wait an hour but just like 5 or 10 minutes to see if they will stop or not

That's good, I just feel like I'm not one to constantly hold him when he cries when he's a little older. He's heavy now and squirmy lol I can't imagine 6 months down the road...

Oh I'm not saying YOU have to, lol. Just saying what I do.



I can definitely tell the different between when they're just being bratty and really want attention :P

Never. If they cry I go to them, regardless of what it's for. They are 6 and 2.

cry? never. unless I really cant get to them, like if I am changing one kid or feeding. My kids are 9 weeks and 20 months. Let them fuss a bit, id say around 6 months. by fuss i mean not a cry just like a whine because the toy didn't do what they wanted or something like that.
