Is it safe to let the baby cry until it calms down?

There are several theories about how to train the baby’s sueño. A very common thing is to let the baby cry until he calms down, however, this is a controversial theory, due to the fact that there are some studies that indicate that it can be traumatic for the baby, that he can feel abandoned, increasing the levels of stress .

However, there are also other investigations [1,2] who support the idea that after a few days, the baby understands that it’s not worth it to cry during the night, learning to sleep by itself. Although it may seem like a cold attitude on the part of the priests, the technique seems to work without causing any trauma to the baby or harming the relationship with the priests.

For these reasons, there is no real contraindication for this strategy, since it should only be adopted when there is a desire for the priests and always under the supervision of the pediatrician. Parents who do not choose to adopt this strategy must take some precautions, such as avoiding taking it to babies under 6 months of age, introducing the approach gradually and always reviewing the room to confirm that the reason for the call is not a dangerous situation.
