I googled and it appears to have something to do the the book Babywise, and it appears to be controversial.

I agree.

I never could let my babies "cry it out".

The whole thing sounds cult'ish to me.

I just described it to my husband and he commented that it "sounds like a great way to raise a psycho killer".

Horrible parenting IMO. I never let my kids cry it out other than for a few minutes if I was taking a shower, or tending something at the stove, etc. They all learned to sleep through the night (6 consecutive hours or so) fairly early (six weeks for my oldest; four months for #2 and #3).

I have a friend who used the Enzo method for all four of her kids from the day they came home from the hospital. She'd just let them cry until they fell back to sleep. I couldn't have done that without feeling horrible.

Here's an old Babycenter article on the subject with references to research, some of which is still active, some not.
