    No. We actually had to sleep train 3 times because sickness/teething set us back. She finally STTN around 12.5 months when we night-weaned. The silver lining is she is 20 months and we haven't had any regressions at all since then *knock on wood*

    I voted that we did not do CIO and LO STTN before 6 months.

    That said, we did CIO for naps but never had to for nights. I do think that getting her into a good nap routine helped her to get to the point where she was able to STTN.

    No option that fits us, but #2 had no CIO and STTN at 4 months reliably. We don't think Theo will get there that quickly because we haven't been as strict with sleep hygiene.

    @mrsrain: Yes, that's what worked for us with DS! Once his naps were good he started STTN soon after. Nighttime CIO scares me and I hope if/when we do some naptime training it will help the nights too.

    We did not CIO and he began STTN two weeks after his first birthday.

    I think the answers make sense - if your LO STTN before 6 months, you don't NEED CIO! Everyone else did it.

    We sleep trained at 7 months when LO's sleep took major hits after holiday visitors, teeth and ear infections during the 6th month. The first night was rough, but he caught on by nights 2 and 3. Has been STTN since (fingers crossed/knock on wood).

    We did CIO with checks three separate times before she was STTN. Once at 6 months to help her fall asleep alone, once at about 10-11 months after illness and once at about 15 months. She started STTN at 15-16 months.

    @JoJoGirl: you're so right!
