Voted : 6mths +
Used at 8mths for our first when he hit a rocky patch and 5.5mths a couple of times on our second.
I also agree when nothing else works.
We did attempt CC but it angered both of them further.

I voted 6 months. I have never had to use it but I have no issue with people who do once LO is over 6 months. It's up to individual parents. Only they know their baby.

I voted 6months + because we did CIO at 6.5 months. Fortunately it only took Liam 20 minutes to fall asleep on the first night.

I think I should have voted when mother is desperate though. Liam would only sleep on me before we did CIO and I would fall asleep in the daytime and have the most awful dreams. No matter how hard I tried to stay awake I wold doze off. When we woke up I was the most moody stroppy bitch imagineable. At 6.5 months I felt desperate.
A few days ago I went for a nap when Liam did (he was in his cot) and I had an awful dream about chasing my OH round the house with a knife. I never have dreams like that in the night. The rest of the day I was hell to be around.

When Liam was newborn I would have answered never to this. But I got to the point where I had to do SOMETHING to get him to sleep in his cot.
